I am getting closer to get my Apple I build to work. I had some trouble with the DRAM that was sorted out, to a certain point.
See that thread:
Now after replacing a few more evil DRAM chips found by Mike Willegal's RAM test program, I can run that RAM test for days and days, heat the machine with a heat gun, etc., and at least no more DRAM errors shown.
But when I run that BASIC checksum program from the above thread, it now runs "only" 120-150 hours before crashing with some garbled "Stopped" message.
Digging deeper for root cause would be tedious. So I wonder whether I just let it stay like it is. It's reasonable good for demos on Apple Fests etc.
This said, which reliability (or Mean Time Between Failures) do you have with your own Apple I, original or replica ?
Is it able to run for weeks and months without a hitch ?
Or do I just ask for too much perfection ?
