    PowerBook G4 (finally) reads cheap CD-Rs

    More of a hardware "repair" than a hack. I was getting tired of how my cheap Philips CD-Rs just wouldn't work in my PowerBook G4 no matter what speed I burned them. So it got me thinking, the reason why game consoles (esp. GameCubes) often stop reading discs is because the laser's POT...

    Near Conquest: TANDY PC-4

    Stopped at some thrift stores today, and came across a box showing a little device similar to a calculator. Reading the words on the box in bold, white letters, "Pocket Computer." "Cool"! I thought, it was marked for only $4. So I opened the box to see what was inside. It had all the manuals...

    Stunnel: Emailing with OE5 & GreenMail

    I've lately been trying to find things I can do with my Macs. I had been wanting to do email on my Classic II. But alas, I haven't found any email clients that would work with Stunnel.

    Project: Program on a Classic II

    Well, I've finally setup my Classic II for the summer. (Or whats left of summer. :p ) (Any recommendations on how to remove the marks on the case? A simple wet cloth didn't work.) I now have it dual-booting 6.0.8L & 7.5.5 (Easy to switch between the two with Apple's System Picker...

    Software Manual Preservation: DIY Bookscanning

    With my recent conquest of development software, I thought it would be useful for me and others if I try to "bookscan" the programming manuals I got for Symantec C++ and THINK Pascal. I plan on using this Instrucable to create my "book scanner." The results are actually quite good. I put...

    PowerPup will be based on?

    As some may know, I've been planning on making a lightweight linux os for PPC Mac. At first I was going to make it using Puppy Linux sources, (hence my username.) But that proved to be a bit too difficult for me. :p So now I'm trying to decide what to base PowerPup on. I've found three that I...

    PB G4 Titanium display repair project

    I received this as a donation for my PowerPup project. :D (He was tired of messing with it so he gave it to me, but I wanted to at least pay for shipping. ;) ) The display doesn't work, so when I got it I hooked it up to an external monitor to see if that would work. Fortunately it does...
