Dev Notes Gone!

Apple's hardware dev notes for 68k and PowerPC systems are no longer accessible on the Internet. You used to be able to find them here: http://developer.apple.com/documentation/Hardware/

Can anyone else confirm? Is there an alternative source?

Peace,
Drew

Nope. There are some dev notes for PowerBook G4 (Aluminum models), PowerMac G4, and Power Mac G5 models, but that's it. The older PowerPC Macs are missing.

you know what we really need?

you know what we really need? The super-ancient, lost-to-the-ages, archaeic, olden-times Macintosh Technical Notes.

In particular, if anyone has the _original_ TN # 11, please contact me. This is the one which does _NOT_ say "Please contact Claris" such and such. It's about MacWrite.

I'm sorry. I can't tell if you are being sarcastic or not...

The Dev Notes have lots of value to hobbiests and hackers. I wanted to look up physical specs for L2 cache SIMMs. This was for my 604e on Gossamer hack project.

Peace,
Drew

I am, in fact, not being sarcastic. Maybe just a bit too dramatic.

I've started a parallel thread about this, and about the related disappearance of Colour Classic and Nubus related websites, over at the 68kMLA.

They seem to have just been moved. There's even 68k dev notes. Still...moving is the first stage before removal, so you might wanna grab all the legacy dev notes you can.
