    Trouble dealing with a local seller with a massive hoard

    This is wild. She will perhaps in time regret turning down this easy one-shot cash sale.

    Jessenator's conquests

    Ooh you got that monitor. Congrats. Looks like it works nicely. That IIci is tasty fresh too.

    Dumb*]#* eBay sellers

    Random anecdote, but I tend to have particularly good luck with poorly-packaged items coming from New York. I think because NY->Bos is a straight-shot with minimal processing.

    Dumb*]#* eBay sellers

    Kinda weird that someone selling a recapped Mac would ship it so crappily!

    Cards and drives

    I love it. I just acquired a 128K (my first) and as anticipated the drive doesn’t physically accept disks. So I’ll be doing one of these soon enough for the first time...

    SyQuest 105 Cartridge

    The EZ135 is what I used back in the day. I remember it seeming like the smarter choice. And wow was it incredible to have 135MB cartridges considering I'd been living with a 160MB HDD and floppies.  No trace of them in my possession nowadays... eventually Zip disks became ubiquitous and...

    Cards and drives

    I bought an as-is 800K in an external recently which was fully seized up as well. Ended up needing a heat gun to get it to budge; soaking in isopropyl didn't cut it.

    IIfx | IINTX 64-pin SIMMs

    Hah - along with 'Keep Retrocomputing Affordable', which I am loving.  Maybe they're just nobly trying to prevent Johnny G et al from buying them all up and re-selling for massive markup.

    Power Mac G4 with Sonnet Encore ST G4 1.6 GHz - Restoration thread

    Looks lovely all cleaned up! 1.6 GHz is quite the upgrade from stock -- quite a fast G4, especially for one that can run Mac OS 9. It's the upper echelon of native classic performance. Great score there. Useful for all sorts of things.  Recapping does seem prudent as the oldest G4s are getting...

    A Bit Of A Rarity

    So awesome - loving that 'insert disk' icon. Best of luck with the drive and experiencing the contents of that disk. Perhaps some Lisa fans can help you out with the drive.

    This is giving me life today! Awesome work and reporting, and a testament to the SE's resilience.

    My estimated delivery date was "Mon, Apr 27 - Wed, May 06" :D   I think it will finally arrive on Saturday, if USPS is to be believed!

    3D Printed Gears for 800K Floppy Drives like MP-F51W-03

    I bought a couple of big box games from somebody in Australia who shipped them out on April 14th. The package just entered the U.S. this week.
