I though the power supply may have died, so I decided to do a Takky mod to one of my CCs using the logicboard from the Mac TV. Well, as it turns out the power supply of the Mac TV is fine...

I think it is impossible, but...

    2x compact.........Performa 200 and Mac Classic

    I went to work (volunteer) at the recyclers today, and while I was walking around the facility these 2 caught my eye.
