• Updated 2023-07-12: Hello, Guest! Welcome back, and be sure to check out this follow-up post about our outage a week or so ago.


Been messing around with Macs since the mid-90s in the UK and never stopped since moving out to the Pacific Northwest, including moving my collection halfway across the globe! Some of my machines were hand-me-downs back in the day, including my Macintosh SE/30 which was the first computer I ever used! A lot of my collection was acquired during the years machines were dirt cheap and others have come through endless scouting for deals on CraigsList and eBay.

I'm able to carry out a lot of repairs including recapping logicboards and power supplies, surface-mount soldering, CRT flyback replacement, if you want any help with your project let me know!
