    Interware device software

    Hello JT737 If the file is corrupt I am afraid I won't be able to fix it. The files I offered came from a scrape of the waybackmachine so everything that could have ever been captured by the Internet Archive via the waybackmachine came down by my script but this doesn't mean that someone else...

    Power Machten 4.1.4

    I don't believe Apple relied on any third party unix as they had their own flavor, intact Apple once sold at least on of their SC drives, one of the 20, 40, 80, or 160 drives with A/UX preinstalled. I have a few things that I really would like to explore knowledge wise, to sort of resurface some...

    Color Classic Analog Board issue

    Look for any debris that might be contributing to a short somewhere. Check all the solder joints that you've reworked or had to solder in. Check if no solder might have splattered where it shouldn't have but yes, double check your work.

    How did you end up adjusting the hinges to loosen the grip. This is what I understand you did.

    Powerbook150 hinges extremely stiff

    Not yet but I did ordered SuperLube 51010. Because I have so many other things on the go the package of Superlube remains unopened. I think about the project a few times a week so I know I have to get to it. I am privy to this post and once I get back to it I will absolutely update the progress...
