    Running Leopard in a VM and then assigning USB devices to that is how I get data on/off of a modern Mac.

    PCI Nubus Secondwave Expansion Chassis

    Hah that's the Supermac card I was just asking about in this thread. I've no idea what it is.

    A 'once and for all' declaration regarding L88M mask MC68040 CPUs

    I don't have it on hand and can't quantify, but I remember it runs warm to the touch without heatsink at 33mhz in my mystic. It was a pretty big difference from XCs I've felt.

    A 'once and for all' declaration regarding L88M mask MC68040 CPUs

    Interesting, my 'L88M' with Motorola markings (date code 0430, acquired from UTsource in 2014) has the code S23159-001. It runs quite cool at 33mhz and I'm inclined to think it's genuine. Meanwhile The Freescale 68040LRC40As that @jessenator and I have are S23159-104, and it looks like...

    Macintosh SE/30 logicboard recreation (thread revival)

    Congrats @Bolle this is a big achievement! Great for replacements and a solid foundation for next level SE/30 hacking.

    QuickCam on SE/30 issues

    Just got a few QuickCams (2x B&W and 1x Color) and I'm having trouble getting anything of quality out of them. System SE/30 + Carrera040 + Micron Xceed running 7.5.5 with basic setup (fresh install, pretty bare minimum extensions). Running QuickCam 2.1.3 or QuickCam 2.0.2 software, set up to...

    Macintosh Se/40 CRT pinout?

    Color tubes won't fit in the SE chassis without surgery. In that link the color tube sticks out a few inches beyond the back of the motherboard, and the creator cut a square out of the back of the SE rear piece presumably to support that additional depth. The final images only show the front of...

    A 'once and for all' declaration regarding L88M mask MC68040 CPUs

    To add my experience, I've got 2 'L88M' chips: 1. Freescale LRC040A (acq 2021, mfg 0603, prob from same buyer as you @jessenator ) - runs hot bot not scalding without heatsink at 40mhz 2. Motorola RC040A (acq 2014, mfg 0430) - runs warm without heatsink at 33mhz I haven't compared temps side by...

    Scored an SE/30 with a video card on buyee

    Nice congrats! Is it a Grand Vimage 24-16s? Didn't realize they could go to 2k res - I don't have a monitor to test at the moment.

    Scored an SE/30 with a video card on buyee

    Likely an Interware video card, its a popular accelerator/video card brand in Japan. The silver back w slight bronze DB15 looks like my GrandVimage and other Vimage cards I've seen.

    Anyone have an ADB graphics tablet or joystick?

    Not sure, perhaps the UnMouse is using the absolute positioning stuff documented in that appnote? I don’t have an UnMouse and still have yet to set up my microtouch touchscreen so I can’t test. Their driver seems to be mature and well thought out so worst case using that might not be so bad.

    Anyone have an ADB graphics tablet or joystick?

    @tashtari Take a look at the MicroTouch UnMouse. Microtouch made both the UnMouse trackpad and the Mac-n-Touch touchscreen. The latter is impossible to find but the UnMouse is often on ebay. I put all the resources related to it on my github including software, pics, user manual I scanned, etc...

    Color Macintosh Plus

    Great project!! Very elegantly done. One thing I've been hoping for is the price of OLED screens to go down, so that we could potentially get a flexible OLED display and push it up against a curved CRT to replicate the slight curve of the screen. The non-emissive blacks would also be very CRT...
