    Power Mac G4 IDE to SSD adapter?

    Cheers. I got two G4 Power Macs, one 667MHz, one 750 Quicksilver, payed 40€ together. Both have very loud and slow IDE drives. Thought i update them with some old Sata SSDs i have. Should i get a special 40pin IDE to Sata adapter or are the 8€ ones from china ok?

    Mystery expansion in a Classic

    So, i was just looking into that old and beaten Classic i had in a box for what seems like years. Caps are leaked, green muck on the traces, it still starts, but without sound. The hardware is pretty much the usual, memory expansion to 4 MB and a hard disk. And i found this: The...

    Not Apple related Palm III

    Here, feast your eyes on my IBM Workpad, which is a Palm Vx undercover: I remember that it came with PalmOS 3.5, you could call IBM and they sent you a CD with PalmOS 4.0, which you then had to write into the ROM. I also remember that i had an app that would overclock the hardware...

    Apple vs china knockoff Ehternet-to-USB converters

    I'm not sure it's the right place, maybe it should be moved to the Lounge. I just found this comparison between an Applea nd a china knockoff Ehternet-to-USB converter. Kind of interesting: http://projectgus.com/2013/03/anatomy-of-a-cheap-usb-ethernet-adapter/

    Yellowing of the iMac

    Yes, there is some yellowing in the first gen iMac already. I have three. One has a good picture, but yellowed case, another has a good case, but bad picture, so i swapped. Here is what i learned: The case is made of two layers, the outer see-through layer, which is good plastic, not brittle...

    Basilisk II sound

    It is! ;D Would another rom file help ypu with Mini vMac? . However, i'm not sure about the legality, so i don't provide the direct link. The Macintosh Liberation Army must be protected against unnecessary legal risks. :approve: BTW, i have nearly perfect sound with BasiliskII...

    Identify this iMac, if possible

    Someone next town sells a broken iMac. I placed a bid. Even if it's broken beyond repair, some parts should be salvageable. :lol: The seller says it's a M5521 in green. The seller hasn't answered my questions for a couple of days. It seems to me it's a third gen iMac with the new HK-speakers...

    Which new Mac is the right one for me?

    I have no experience with newer Macs whatsoever. I have a Rev A iMac, but believe it's not enough to play modern, games that where available for the Mac OS 9. So here is my wishlist: should be as silent as possible should be able to play all games that came out, even later ones, within reason...

    I found lots of benchmarks for old SCSI drives.

    While feeding my demons and searching for p0rn of insects getting drunk on rotten fruit (i'm a complicated man, don't ask), i came across this page: http://www.ikasu.net/lombard/hdd/scsi/ It seems this particular gentleman was, some 11 years ago, highly interested in benchmarking of harddisks...

    Video Adapter Docs Scan Dump

    Another adapter, this time Miro branded. It sucks. I wish i hadn't payed 10 Euros for it. Here is a quick table of what worked with a modern display, the LG Flatron IPS224 22" TFT, wich you can get for about 150 Euros at Amazon: Miro MC2, MacOS 7.5.5, LG IPS224 TFT Q650 C610 P475...
