    MacPro 8 Core Cheese Grater

    At work they were going to recycle an old MacPro cheese grater tower. 8 core Xeon.  I asked my boss if I could have it and he said yes!  It’s now my Plex server. Great machine-even better that it was free!  Lots of good videos on how to upgrade them. Now I need to get rid of my PowerMac G5...

    Quicksilver Troubleshooting

    I have a 733MHz G4 tower and when I power it on, it does the usual fan surging sound, but no chime then immediately shuts down.  Pushing the CUDA button doesn't help.  Is that a bad power supply?

    Aww, do I need caps?

    I took my SE/30 out today, I haven’t used it in probably almost 12 years, but I do remember it working back in the day.  Started it up, no chime, just scrambled video (see photo).  Turned it off and Deoxit’d the RAM sticks, ROM and slots.  The caps didn’t look bad or leaky nor did the battery...

    Apple IIc Monitor Died

    We had a power surge and now my IIc won't come on.  I've swapped power cables, outlets and power strips.  The only thing I could find about it possibly having an internal fuse was a Reddit thread.  I really don't want to have to take this apart, discharge the CRT, etc, but figured I'd ask the...

    Black MacBook

    I got a Black MacBook from my previous job a while back and it's just been sitting collecting dust...until now.  Before I got a MacBook Pro for running my MIDI apps, I was using another black MacBook and I still have it as a backup.  This one I figured I'd use as a parts machine, but it works...

    Apple Logo-Branded Tool

    I found this today and wondered if it was in fact a legitimate Apple-branded item or something some 3rd party company made.  Either way it's headed to my collection. :)

    PPC, okay it's a PS3, but technically a PPC, right?

    Someone was giving away a fat PS3, in peices, in a box, on CL a while back, and I snagged it.  I just got around to putting it back together and unfortunately I get the dreaded '3 beep' error when I try to turn it on. :(   From what I've read it's pertaining to the HDD.  The HDD i got with it...

    Indigo iBook

    I've had this for a few years, and its been sitting in a box in my basement, untouched since I brought it home. I had forgotten about it. The company I was working for at the time had a palette of old CPUs and CRT monitors that were going to the recycle center. Since I was the IT guy for the...

    Intel iMac, 17" C2D

    I helped my father in law with an iMac upgrade and transferred all his info (his 5th Mac: LCII, Beige PM G3, Snow iMac G3, Intel iMac, now a 21.5" iMac), and he gave me his old one. :) It's got the vertical line issue, but still usable. I'm going to upgrade the RAM and use it for my...

    Apple Studio Display (LCD)

    I just picked up an LCD Studio Display (blue translucent) from the local thrift store. It's pretty dusty, and I have yet to fire it up... A quick search led me to the setup PDF, and it didn't come with a power brick. :disapprove: I was sooo excited to see it that I quickly put it into my...

    OMP and Newton MP 130 + extras

    I just scored on an OMP and Newton MP 130 with accessories which includes a Newton keyboard, modem, memory card, serial cable, AC adapter and Apple leather cases for each. The guy was really nice and threw in a bunch of stuff I wasn't expecting. Time to update my signature! :b&w:

    Strawberry iMac!

    I was driving my daughter to class and spotted a Strawberry iMac in someone's driveway with a "free" sign attached. Haven't fired it up yet, but it's a slot loader, so if nothing else it can be a parts machine for my daughter's Snow. Sweet (pun intended).

    Free Newton Batteries!

    I just got back from picking up a couple of Newton batteries from a fellow on Craigslist. One is a OMP battery(?) AND wall charger (Apple branded, part number H0017 and H1200 respectively), and the other is a NEW IN BOX MP2000 battery with the tagger still on it (a la Nigel Tufnel)...

    Original iMac

    Just got back from my latest conquest: an original iMac, complete with keyboard, hockey puck mouse and translucent power cord. Free from Craigslist. It still has the shipping plastic on the foot/kickstand!! Looks like my daughter has a Mac now.

    This weekend I picked up a set of USB CH Pro flight pedals in their original box for-- wait for it-- $7, talked down from $10! Also on that flea market run, I got a nice vintage-ish hard camera/video case about 2'x2'x1.5' with foam on the inside for $5! Wheeeee!

    I found an Apple PowerCD player at a flea market today for $2 (talked down from $5). No base, ac adapter or remote. I'll have to see if it works.

    ThinkPad 365XD

    I know, it's not a Mac, but for $10 it's pretty cool. Pentium, 775MB HDD, 16MB RAM, CD ROM, Win95. Complete with original User's Guide, external floppy drive, 10/100 LAN PCMCIA, 56k MODEM PCMCIA & AC Adapter. I think the battery's dead, but what are you gonna do for $10! I really wasn't...

    I have an opportunity to buy an Apple ][c in its original box, orig. monitor and Image Writer with original OS disks, kids SW that works great and is in good condition for $250 (local guy, original owner who paid $2795 in '86). What say you? Is that a fair price? I've never been into Apple...

    AppleDesign Speakers

    Picked up a pair of the AppleDesign Speakers at the local flea market for $10. The guy wouldn't budge on the price, but I thought it was fair. }:) They're in great shape too and not the sunburnt yellow. What price are these usually going for?

    Video Cards for Cubes

    Anyone have any expereince upgrading their Cube's video card? Mine's got the stock Rage128. I saw a couple of articles on other sites, but wondered if you fine people have done "real world" swappage, not just "here's what you COULD do"? Thanks,
