    Daystar Genesis MP (again!)

    No problem! Just did that https://68kmla.org/bb/index.php?threads/the-holy-grail-of-pci-macs-daystar-millennium-quad-604.31811/page-3#post-422585

    The Holy Grail of PCI Macs: Daystar Millennium Quad 604.

    This is absolutely a bump but here're the images again. They died at some point in forum software upgrades. One of those mythical machines you read about is the Daystar Genesis MP. Multiple 604s? How cool is that. rarely do they actually appear for sale though, and when they do often the boring...

    ATTO ExpressPCI UL2S Firmware?

    UL3D, or at least mine, has the firmware for PC and Mac on the same card. No need to update or flash, it works in either/or.

    Daystar Genesis MP (again!)

    The Dual CPU, yes. The Quad CPU? No. The Quad needs an additional 3.3V power connector not present on the factory PSUs.

    Daystar Genesis MP (again!)

    Oh man, I would do things for one of those or one of the Daystar nPower Dual CPU cards (or a 9500/9600 MP). I have a thing for these terrible machines. Speaking of terrible things, I've gotten it working pretty well.

    Daystar Genesis MP (again!)

    I managed to get R5 installed on mine no issues. I believe the usual issue is there's an R5 .iso floating around that isn't multisession, so parts go missing. the .ccd/.img image works fine.

    Daystar Genesis MP (again!)

    Somehow I have insane luck, because I've picked up another Quad CPU Daystar. This one's a Quad 132! Here's a link to the first one: https://68kmla.org/bb/index.php?threads/the-holy-grail-of-pci-macs-daystar-millennium-quad-604.31811/ This machine is a Daystar Genesis MP. It's a Quad CPU...

    Unexpected ewaste find: MicroQue PDS4/Top Hat. Quad LC PDS Adapter!

    Not just his Risc PC, I also ended up with his Iyonix. The RPC itself is actually really nice though, it came with a Kinetic upgrade and an eesox graphic equalizer in the top slice. Not sure where the equalizer came from no one else has seen them before.

    Unexpected ewaste find: MicroQue PDS4/Top Hat. Quad LC PDS Adapter!

    I've actually got an RPC 700 here. It's a pretty fun machine, with a 233 MHz Strong ARM via a Kinetic CPU upgrade and a graphic equalizer in the top slice. I need to get a network card for it next and make the sound work at some point. Runs Doom really well, though! I drug it out to VCF West...

    Unexpected ewaste find: MicroQue PDS4/Top Hat. Quad LC PDS Adapter!

    A bit of an unusual one, a quad LC PDS adapter. I found it shoved in with a bunch of VME-style cards scrapped from some sort of audio setup, along with a Radius Color Pivot IIsi interface. Quite a big card, sadly I did not find the case it would've gone with. Just bare board in a gaylord. Oh well.

    mAcTX - ATX to Classic Macs

    I've actually got mAcTX II boards kicking around here, as well as all the components. The LC one's files are online but I still have the IIc stuff. They were kind of two separate projects under one name. I really need to get around to assembling boards and/or kits. Unfortunately my job hit me...

    Homebrew PRAM Batteries

    In a similar way, I've just straight up soldered CR2032 holders in place of the originals. Both Keystone #1058 and unknown SMT 2032 holders from Excess Solutions fit fine with the tabs directly over the original through holes. Flood through holes, glue holder in place, heat tabs. Works great.

    Compgeke's Acquisitions

    New Machine: Outbound 125. Got this from that ebay auction that ended last week! Not sure if it works or not yet - I need to get batteries for the keyboard.

    Compgeke's Acquisitions

    Came with what was once NeXTSTEP 0.9 and 1.0, but since overwritten. + one generic NeXT branded blank disk and one random third party disk. What's currently on them? Great question! I'm going to try and image them in a SCSI MO drive to see if I can pull something off them. Unfortunately I...
