Mac II, Quadra & Centris

Just think, having a Quadra 950 in 1992 would be like having a Mac Pro today… except with more slots, more expandability, and on-board SCSI!

mac OS 8.1, but something isn't quite right

MacDat has just been updated - Repair Portal is live!
Capacitor reference, service source, knowledge base - all still there, just under the repair portal now. Much better organized. And of course, the schematic archive is also now up :)
Finally debombed my Mac SE SuperDrive and I'm suprised that the Maxell battery didn't leak or explode inside of it

I installed my MacBatt CR2032 adapter with a brand new and fresh 2032 battery and it's running well
too many computers but no motivation to do anything with them... i should pull out my iBook G4 and write some classic Mac OS programs or something
