    G4 cube fully supported Linux ?

    I ran YDL on mine back in the day and had everything working... but it's been a long time. I'm pretty sure it was newer YDL than 3.0... probably 4 or 5? Are the YDL update repositories even available anymore?

    Cheap and simple ADB to USB converter

    I showed the board to some of my fellow keyboard nerds and they also pointed out that you can put the pro-micro on the under side of the PCB which sandwiches the port against the PCB providing it additional support.

    Cheap and simple ADB to USB converter

    Elite-C are the ones I've used in the past for keyboard projects. Wasn't aware of the BIT-C ones. They don't look as nice as the Elite-C for that price, but if it works it works. Looks like the BIT-C has a vendor in Europe also which may be a plus for some: https://mechboards.co.uk/products/bit-c

    G4 cube won‘t boot off SATA SSD

    I've had really weird issues with IDE to SATA adapters in G3/G4 systems... in the end I never could get any to fully work properly in my beige G3s and I did finally get one to work (at least last I was messing with it) in my Cube. They're a bit odd and finicky.

    Cheap and simple ADB to USB converter

    Appreciate the offer, but don't need one at the moment (I mostly use my wombat currently). I believe they tend to rip the pads right off the PCB. The USB Micro ports don't have good through-PCB support legs to hold them on. It was such an issue that the custom keyboard community designed...

    Cheap and simple ADB to USB converter

    Nice, I have one of these bare wired up on a teensy already... it was a massive pain. A little PCB like this would have made it significantly easier. If you can find them and spend the extra for one, I recommend getting a pro micro compatible board with anything but USB micro though. Those...

    Tucows Mac Archive Posted to Archive.org (72GB!)

    Was running quicker for me from the torrent than from archive.org (which is usually the case). No idea how long it took me, I tossed it on the torrent server on my NAS and promptly forgot about it until I checked on it now and said it was done and had been seeding a fair bit.

    Yet Another Netatalk 2.2 Fork

    Glad to see this project happening. I've been getting by with a custom compiled 2.2.4 install on one of my raspberry pis previously. Will be nice to have a more up to date version running.

    Tucows Mac Archive Posted to Archive.org (72GB!)

    Worth noting, the faster easier way to download it would probably be via the torrent file they offer. It can be accessed at the main details page and you can have your client just download the Mac archive. https://archive.org/details/the-last-tucows-roundup

    Introducing (and interest check) AirTalk: Wireless plug-and-play LocalTalk dongles

    This looks great Cheesy. Skimmed through the pages and didn't see specific wifi details mentioned. I assume these are probably using 2.4ghz, but what authentication protocols does it support?

    Re-capping IIsi problems....

    Since it's been a while I honestly can't recall. I "oops"ed that board anyway so I haven't really messed with it in a while...

    Modern G4 Cube PSU replacement?

    Nice! If only we could find one closer to the stock PSU it'd be perfect. Would be nice to be able to power ADC displays also. I think I'd probably be most comfortable running it on the 110 just for some headroom.

    System 7 Questions

    I think the update was 3 or 4 floppy images. Should be on the garden. From Wikipedia:

    IIsi RAM Upgrade

    They should be fine as long as they're 100ns or faster and they need to be installed in a matched bank (four identical simms), though I've not seen anything about parity compatibility so unsure if that would be the issue. This page suggests that it shouldn't be...

    SE brightness instability

    Sadly I've done both on the CC which is why I'm hoping this thread goes somewhere to maybe give me a hint.
