    "Universal" OS 9 CD that works with 867mhz /1Ghz Titanium G4?

    I've already effectively made a few coasters, so I guess it's time to beg for help. Does anyone know for certain if any of the various "Universal" OS 9.2.2 installation CDs that are floating around will actually work to install OS 9 on one of these last-model Titanium G4s? I've tried a number of...

    Does the LC III support RS-170 NTSC?

    Recently I've acquired an LC III in unknown condition. It chimes and sounds like the HD is booting, but I don't have a monitor adapter. I've ordered one, but in the meantime I stumbled across an explanation of how the NTSC mode that's built into some Mac II-era cards/machines is set up. It...

    Tested: Cheap 2.5" PATA SSD for old PowerBooks

    As noted in this thread about emulating Target Disk mode using a Linux computer:   I discovered my test mule Aluminum G4 PB had a borked internal hard drive. (And a borked memory slot, but I'm ignoring that for now.) While browsing everyone's favorite e-Commerce big brother for the right...

    Booksale Oddity: M0191 Laserwriter Plus Kit

    The local library was having a book sale, which I arrived at 20 minutes before it ended. (IE, the point at which you paid $3 for a grocery bag and walked out with as much as you could stuff.) In the computer books section I found something not a book: still in its original shrink wrap. To...

    Does anyone want a "Brain Board" for their Apple II (II+, IIe)?

    I've been cross-posting this on a number of forums but it's not spam, I swear. Over on the VCF there's a thread in which someone is trying to get 15 commits to purchase a run of Willegal's "Brain Boards". The Brain Board is a firmware card for the II that allows you to do several tricks that...

    Confusion over 800k external floppy drives. Also: CapNet

    I've done quite a bit of Googling and I *think* I've figured the situation out, maybe, but perhaps someone here could help me confirm if I've got it right. My recently acquired Fat Mac (512k, no 'e') has the normal 400k drive internally, and also came with an 800k external drive. Said drive is...

    Netatalk & System 6?

    Does anyone here use Netatalk with System 6, specifically via one of those Localtalk->Ethernet bridges? (The one I have is a Farallon EtherMac iPrint.) I was trying to get this going between a Linux VM (on VirtualBox) on a Macbook Pro (OS X 10.6) and a Macintosh Plus this weekend and didn't...

    Zterm, serial transfers, file types, System Six, pain.

    My fancy new Mac Plus arrived in the mail recently, along with an HD 20SC with a clean installation of System 6. The only other software I have on it Zterm, and Stuffit 3.something. As I don't have anything at all that can read/write 800k floppies (and nothing handy with a SCSI port) I decided...

    Early Intel Mac wireless question

    I decided recently to dust off the old Mac Pro for the kids to play with. (The primary motivating factor was someone giving me a matching 30" Cinema display they didn't want anymore because it didn't play nicely with their new MacBook.) In the process I decided to cram some cheap upgrades into...

    MDD G4... one dumb question

    Recently I (foolishly?) agreed to take a dual 1.25 Ghz MDD G4 Tower (OS 9-bootable, not FW800) off a coworkers' hands for $50. (I'm not sure why. I think I had this vague idea that I could let my two-year-old bang on it instead of a fragile old Powerbook.) I'll be getting it today, supposedly it...
