    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...

    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...

    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...

    FPU for IIsi and ethernet card for LC475

    First, excuse me for dragging that LC in here, but it's basically a Centris 605. I have, at a friends house, a nubus adapter for my IIsi. As far as i know one can pop in a math processor like this into the adapter, thus giving the IIsi a FPU. Right? http://www.ebay.de/itm/220846013303 I also...

    VRAM, cd bezel, cd carrier and cd carrier rails for Q650

    I believe it's time i update my Quadra 650 to it'S full potential. You know, the works: a cdrom, new caps, larger disk, max VRAM. Ram is maxed out, so there isn't anything to do there. The most unobtainable piece of the puzzle is the cdrom bezel. Do you guys know any source where i can score...

    Make a mirror of the grenier-du-mac.net site! (code inside!)

    So, since redundancy beats single points of failure, here is a snippet you can run in a bourne compatible shell of your preference. The goal is to have a complete mirror, including offsite downloads, of the abandonware site www.grenier-du-mac.net. For unix like systems, the shell /bin/sh should...
