    MaxAppleZoom and Monitor Expander - potential display upsizing?

    Article over on LEM says:     13" AppleColor High-Res, 12" Monochrome and High-Res Monochrome [**] Mac II (Toby), Mac II High-Res, 4/8, 8/24  Anyone ever use these back in the day?  While they are both long gone, it might be interesting to dig them (or Mr Natao) up for investigation.

    new case styles for Floppy Emu

    Compare the styling on the Global Village Teleport Modem.  Maybe bring your grooves a bit further back from the front end, and in from the sides.  Or ... and I realise this is going to be tricky .... centre the display cutout widthwise, and have it only show the actual LCD area, and not the...

    Writing to a read-only (ROM) socket

    http://bitchin100.com/wiki/index.php?title=REX_Overview   Now, granted, the 68k does not use a multiplexed address/data bus, but - does this stir any ideas?

    What makes the 68k processors so cool?

    Over at SegaRetro is the best reasonably noob-friendly explanation I've discovered yet of the powerful features of the 68k family, why programmers and system builders were drawn to it, and the shortcomings of the 68000 which were addressed in later models in the series...

    PPP to Wifi module in a Newton (and maybe others?)

    Listing this under Hacks rather than Newton, because it seems like it would be usable on a lot of older machines: Giving Wifi To An Apple Newton - Hackaday   {bolding mine} The module itself is called the Nano WiREACH SMT OB G2. It has some other interesting features, like DHCP, optional...

    Unlocking "smart" batteries (Thinkpad example)

    Thought this article on Hackaday might inspire or suggest some possible attacks on those SMRT Powerbook batteries that sometimes won't play nice when re-celled.   Unlocking ThinkPad batteries

    840AV and 660AV: are the ROMs identical?

    As in the title.  Does anyone know?  Would anyone be able to run a diff on the two files and see?

    Stupid ADB Tricks According to this, most ADB mice have a pin on their chip for a second button. He also gets a trackball from a Powerbook working as an external desktop device. And builds a converter for Mac 128k mice to ADB from an old ADB mouse:

    Just get a non-Retina (iPad 1 / 2) 1024x768.  They're on ebay with VGA/DVI/AV controller boards for ~US$120 give or take.  And the nice thing about XGA is that 512x342 is a 1:4 pixel mapping. Here are your bezel diagonals for an SE/30.  If you want me to check the exact width & height just...

    just got a performa 5200CD

    Maybe, if you can find one.  This Color Classic mod uses one, and if anything there's less room in a CC. Chances are good you could get the 1-slot riser to fit, as they've been used in CC upgrades a bunch. From the PCC pages, here's a single riser in the back of a CC: The 2-slot riser might...

    Photos from. . It looks like (going on the motherboard diagram below, and the photo of the above machine's back panel) the joystick card is the one taking up the PDS space.  Whether it connects to the PDS slot or not, you can't see from the photos.  But just maaaybe, if you can do without a DOS...
