I picked up a powerbook duo 280 at the hamfest.
It fired right up and started booting into MacOS 8. But the screen is bad, starts that tunnelvision shit when you fire it up.
But the reason why I made this post, is because of the content that is on the hard drive.
Well, I asked how much the Duo was, he said 5 bucks. I said ok. Then he looked at me strangely, and asked me if i knew what it was. I said yes. Then he asked if i knew what to do with it, I said sorta.
Then he was reluctant to sell it to me. him-hawed around a little bit, and finally said ok. He said there were accessories that went with it somewhere, But i couldnt find any, Just the duo-dock which I passed up on.
I think i know why he was reluctant to sell it to me. The data on the HDD. May have been a government computer. lol.
Has all kinds of interesting stuff on it, Timbuktu pro, has a Radar Responder control panel, and it has a Satellite Link control panel. Neither will run. expects some sort of hardware that it cannot detect. Has a terminal program, some Siren faxing programs, office, some personal data which i will not disclose.
Also, it has 2 weird software programs that I have no idea what they do. Sybase, and DataPrism
