    Web browser and email client for 68k Mac?

    Hi, I haven't tried icab 2.9.9 myself, but I can imagine the result will not be that good and of course, there is always Classila 9.3.3 which accesses some websites, but nothing sensitive of course. I am trying to remember how many web browsers did OS 9 have originally, besides IE 5.1.7 ? As for...

    Web browser and email client for 68k Mac?

    You peaked my interest. Well, here is my take on OS 9 and the internet. I believe it can be done, however of course we will have to cut off certain machines from doing so sadly.. Perhaps a beefy G3 more than 500 mhz up to and including the Power Mac G4 1.42 and higher (those overclocked to 1.5...

    Web browser and email client for 68k Mac?

    I guess the question is - if someone and or a group of people had the time and patience to create a new web browser for OS 9 which can render most of the web correctly, forgetting youtube, would this be possible ? Classila 9.3.3 renders some pages nicely, while most not so nicely. Does anyone...

    Tired 15" PowerBook G4

    Could be a video issue too. Do you know if there is any fresh paste on the video chip ? Usually lines and artifacts are caused by a faulty GPU and or may need to re-paste it. Macs are known to hold up for years, and the PowerPC era systems have been known to hold up.

    Pismo hangs as soon as a drive is inserted in the media bay

    Hi, sorry I was away for awhile. Just getting back to reading your response - sounds like a logic board issue then if you tried SSD and that did not work. Could also be a broken connector somewhere.

    PowerMac G4 unable to sleep

    Hmm.. could it be maybe just maybe the SCSI card in there was not installed by Apple themselves ? What OS are you running on the G4 ? A G4 450 sawtooth came with OS 9. When you try to take out the SCSI card, is goes to sleep ? Do you have anything else hooked up to the G4 which could prevent it...

    Oops, I just got myself a Quad G5

    Which reminds me, I may check out my G5 Quad to make sure it still works. I would rather pay someone to fix the LCS, as I am not that inclined to take it apart myself, plus I would be concerned I couldn't get back together. I can take apart a Titanium and Aluminum PowerBook and most G4 macs, but...

    PowerMac G4 unable to sleep

    Try to do a PMU reset to reset the computer's internal system. Here is a pic of where the PMU switch is. Amazing, all this stuff used to be on Apple's website, it seems they did a recent clean up of the server and older tech articles are gone...

    Oops, I just got myself a Quad G5

    Sadly, Panasonic's LCS is not going to fit the quad, however I did read a few years back that the single pump is the more reliable version and the dual pump for some, unknown reason comes up as being less reliable. Mile will vary with this though. I have a G5 Quad and it runs good, though I am...

    Aluminum PowerBook G4 battery

    Hey 3lectr1cPPC, do you have the link to browservice ? I wonder if they made it possible to implement sound with it ? It would be awesome to hear sound of youtube videos on OS 9.

    iBook G4 repair

    Hi Forrest, Do a search for retro-mac repair or retro-vintage macintosh repair companies, and you may find one who can still work on them. You may have to provide parts though, as these machines are long obsolete(at least in Apple's eyes).
