@Crusty1: as I have had to buy a new laptop today, because XP is no longer being supported.
Ha: I have a working windows98 machine. Their are drivers that were older hardware never ported.
For me it is always about the drivers. Otherwise I would use a Mac. I have some old ones of those too. There is a MIDI program that works best under OS9. Apple removed finder MIDI (Well all of real Quicktime*) from Mavericks. If it was not designed at NeXt, It was not designed by Apple. (But I digress)
*Quicktime player should be called Quartzplayer now.
I have two Arduino Leonard-based projects, a few PIC-based projects, A Raspberry pie with a small Adafruit LCD, some FPGA projects, two game wardens, seven hunters and a cow. I might be able to chat about one or the other of those.
Hi David -- I'll use your converter next time -- I'm sorry you can't join us -- but maybe you'll wake up in the wee hours and not be able to get back to sleep and think "I wish there was someone I coudl chat with" ... at which point a light would go off ... LOL
