    "traumatizing" wakeup call with my IIsi

    Hey all, i'm back again! I finally decided to take a look at my SE/30 and clean up some of the corrosion to prepare it for a recapping. That went about as well as I expected, with a chip lifting half off the board because the caps had eaten the legs. Oh well, it's fixable. Then I decided to...

    Check out this! It's a Panasonic Let'snote, available only in the Japanese market.

    My PowerBook 145B had an accident

    I just pulled out my PowerBook 145B and tested the "known-working" battery. It stayed on for about two seconds. But then something extremely horrifying happened. The screen went to a weird flickering black, and a LOUD grinding noise started happening! That lasted until I plugged in the AC...

    And the conclusion: Getting a Power Mac 8100/80AV halfway across the country really does a number on it. There's Spindler plastic EVERYWHERE! The front CD bezel and blank bezel are broken off, the front plastic part has a hole in it, not to mention the entire back plate is broken off... ...

    Just got an iPod Classic, and it's the ORIGINAL! The one with the mechanical scroll wheel. Although it weirdly states that it's Windows formatted. So I'm guessing the firmware was updated...? And also, an original iPod touch. That bumps my iPod collection up to six.

    I got a Mac Classic II today. I turned it on, but there was nothing from the screen. Which makes me think it's an analog board failure...? I honestly don't know, but here's a picture of everything laid out! And yes, that Maxell is intact.

    Does anyone know about the weird SE fan?

    I was watching a video on a Mac SE, and the guy was talking about this weird "fan" (that looked a lot like a cylinder). Apparently, it was loud and obnoxious, so Apple quietly got rid of it and used a conventional fan. Can anyone back up this fact? (I just want to know about it. It looked cool!)

    Here are some pics of the IIsi. Thankfully, the MaxellBomb hadn't exploded yet.

    Here's some old Apple lookalike stuff! iMac G3 alarm clocks, by Timex. I guess they wanted to get some money off of the translucent plastic craze.

    Liberated another PowerBook today... :pb: It's a 145B! The battery even holds a charge! (well, somewhat.) There is a little bit of trackball issue, the port door broke off... but I don't care! Runs 7.5, like the Blackbird.

    Been ignoring the Sun stuff for a bit, ( :-/ ) but I've got some cool stuff! I was given an original Think Different education poster, and something familiar...

    iMac G3 screen problem.

    I got the Flower Power working... for about 30 seconds. First, it was the HDD. Now, it's the CRT! I try to boot the iMac, but the screen won't display anything. The CRT does all the things it would normally do as the machine boots, but there is nothing onscreen. Funny thing is, this started...

    Weird, it won't boot off the HDD or CD... It is showing a "Can't open boot device" for the CDs, and an "Illegal instruction" for the HDD. At least I got it out of booting from net! :p
