    In System 7, what decides which icon bundle is used?

    I accidentally mounted a CD with an OS 8 style icon for a Stuffit installer, and it's infested my crispy clean System 7. Is there a way to force System 7 to use a specific icon bundle? I like older System 7 style Installer Maker icon.

    FWB NuBUS Jackhammer Incompatible with Fujitsu 2.3G MO Drive

    I figured I'd fiddle around with my Jackhammer. Tried out a 15k RPM SCSI drive. Was insanely fast. Funny watching it format and then create 16 2GB partitions. :P Unfortunately, I discovered that so long as the Jackhammer card is installed, my Fujitsu drive won't mount any MO disks. I even...

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/154592242398?ViewItem=&item=154592242398 Just purchased this little doohicky with an unexpected acceptance of offer. Curious to try it out. I didn't see a battery on it. Are those EPROMs maybe?

    Radius Pivot Model Variations - Need Info

    I can't find any information on the various Radius Pivot models. What I do know is that some of them were Mac only and required specifically the Pivot card, likewise some were PC only and required a Pivot ISA card. Then according to what little info I could find, some would work with any video...

    Apple High Resolution Color Display Coil Issue (Fix)

    Didn't think to take pictures, but it's self explanatory if you have this issue. If you have an Apple High Res Color Display that has a wonky picture that can sometimes be fixed by shaking or slapping it (losing sync, losing picture, etc.) I discovered -- at least on mine, anyway -- that...

    Golden Triangle DiskTwin software - Was someone looking for this?

    Pre-crash I seem to recall someone was looking for the software to get their DiskTwin working. I don't recall if you ever resolved the issue, but someone is selling copies on eBay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/294274736521

    Maxtor SCSI HDD 11-pin Termination Resistor

    Someone was asking this before the forum crash. I just happen to have one of these hard drives. It has 2x 11-pin 220 Ohm bussed resistor network. Bourns even describes them specifically as SCSI termination resistors. https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/652-4611X-1LF-220 It does go in a...

    A Unique Floppy Disk

    I was going through a literal box of floppies from fellow user @cmstuber.  Lots of cool disks in there that I've backed up and added to my collection.  However, I found a rather unique floppy disk.  It's not of standard construction compared to the original Sony disks that everyone copied. The...

    Meta-conquest - Floppy Disks

    I bought the remainder of the disks from @cmstuber major floppy haul.  I was going to use the bulk disks to make some blank floppies.  Lots of 800k and even 400k disks, which I like having on hand since high density disks are so common.  To my surprise, he sent me a large flatrate box full of...

    Does anyone here actually have a DoubleUp Board?

    Was watching old Computer Chronicles episodes, and they had a fun segment with Stuffit and DiskDoubler.  I had no idea that there was a hardware option for DiskDoubler.  Does anyone here have one?  It sure looks like fun.

    Can Letter sized paper be used in the Legal cassette for original LaserWriter?

    Does anyone know if I can use the Legal tray for the original LaserWriter with regular 8.5x11 letter?  Was Googling around for pictures, and I can't quite tell.  It looks like it might have a divider or something so you can use letter or A4, but I not sure. I'm gonna go take a look at an...

    Still Looking for the Perfect BinHex / Binary Encoding Tool

    Unless my search has failed me, I've been unable to find a workable BinHex or Binary encoder for storing Macintosh files online.  I wanted to avoid proprietary formats like Stuffit. I have, unfortunately, run into an issue: BinHex 5.0 is not drag & drop capable, and is really slow...

    Wallpaper - Desktop Patterns for Systems 6 & 7

    I just snagged what looks like a complete set.  This one has me excited.  It's a desktop wallpaper program that works with both System 6 and 7.  It expands the patterns and color selection from the original 8x8 pixels to multiple 32x32 blocks for up to 128x128 pixels, allowing for more...

    The Reconstruction of Gopher Golf

    Gopher Golf was a pretty popular shareware title on the Mac.  A really fun miniature golf game with a course editor.  I never owned the game because I only ever got to play the shareware version. I then stumbled upon the retail version released by MacSoft.  Didn't know it ever had a store...

    Brymen BM257s multimeter + Probe Masters probes

    Put my stimulus check to good use and bought a Brymen BM257s.  It was on sale, same price as the EEVBlog BM235. Now I have a decent multimeter.  I can even test capacitors, which is something I couldn't do with my bitty RadioShack. I have test lead adapter, gator clip adapter, terminal lead...

    Homebrew IIfx RAM - Did anyone finish making these?

    I saw this thread, but user fraveydank stopped posting here years ago. Has anyone else attempted to make new IIfx RAM?  Even they sold for $50 for a single 16MB SIMM, that'd still be a bargain right now. Edit:  Just saw THIS thread. @joethezombie  made some.  If I can source the parts, can...

    1988 RCA Dimensia TV

    Got this for free off Craigslist.  Weighs a ton with its 3" solid oak frame + 27" CRT.  However, it is pure 1980s nostalgia. :lol:  I'm gonna recap it just in case, but it's gonna be a great TV.  All I need is one of those plaid sofa beds that everyone seemed to have as well, and my living room...
