    AppleTalk Network Woes

    This is something I haven't seen before and definitely will try--I have a spare PSU sitting around and will pop it in there sometime! Now I have a re-capped Classic doing the same thing...could it be something similar, maybe with the analog?

    Color StyleWriter 4100 - Experiences?

    After years of wanting one, I finally snagged a Color StyleWriter 4100 (the HP rebadge) on eBay in excellent condition. I have some experience with late 90s HP printers on Windows, all of which has been positive, so I'm curious, what have people generally thought of the 4100/4500 on the Mac? How...

    AppleTalk Network Woes

    I'm having some issues with AppleTalk on a few machines. Both are re-capped, so we can set that issue aside right now. The first is an LC. This one has never worked on a network, even with its original board. (I'm not sure if the original board was the one I got re-capped or if I put another...

    Future Project Idea: Expansion Spelunx Rooms

    Here's an idea for anyone who is good with HyperCard and MacroMind Director...how about a challenge to see who can come up with a new expansion room for Spelunx? The program was designed to be expanded, as evidenced by the builder. All copies of Spelunx came with just three rooms, but...

    Claris CAD - thoughts?

    Has anyone here used Claris CAD? I'm looking to do a little drafting in the near future and with programs like AutoCAD being what they are (expensive, hard to use) I'm wondering how Claris's offering was. I haven't used it myself, but I do remember hearing it was basically "MacDraw on steroids"...

    PowerBook Keyboard Discoloration

    It's a 145B in otherwise great shape aside from needing new caps for its screen.

    PowerBook Keyboard Discoloration

    What's the best way to clean a discolored PowerBook keyboard? Some of the keys are more brown than gray, not sure how that happened. I haven't tried my usual keyboard cleaner yet but I figure someone here probably has played around with this!

    A Perfect Condition SE/30

    Few things in life are perfect, but this SE/30 definitely is cosmetically. It does boot, but given the lack of sound, it’s going to get new caps before I use it. The hard drive is also bad, so I’m going to make this the ultimate dream machine, sticking a big ol’ 2 gigger in there and finding...

    HD Access LED Size for NEWER Quantum ProDrive LPS?

    I have a ton of old ProDrives which I am using in my various Macs. (Yes, I'm a purist and will use these hard drives as long as I am able to maintain them). I keep them in working condition, but have one minor issue with the LEDs... The plug for the access LED is a smaller size on the newer...

    Mac LC Weirdness - Electric Charge? Shorting Out?

    I have an LC, both logic board and PSU re-capped, with a strange issue. The logic board appears to build up some sort of weird charge over time. It causes video interference over time and today caused the computer to short out while starting up. I unplugged the PSU from the board, re-inserted...

    IIc and IIGS Key Caps - Interchangeable?

    Are the key caps from the IIGS keyboard and the IIC interchangeable? Specifically hoping to swap out an option key for a closed Apple.

    The Newest ImageWriter II?

    Sparked by the discussion in another topic about LC475s being manufactured later than thought, here's a question--who out there has the newest ImageWriter II? According to most sources, the ImageWriter II was still around as late as 1996. They got the brown shipping boxes and revised manuals...

    Best Java Compiler for 68K? PPC w/ OS 9?

    See above. Looking for a quality Java compiler for both the 68K Mac and OS 9 on the PPC platform. It can be two separate programs, mostly just something to use to put a project together with over the summer.

    LC Monitor (12" RGB) Weirdness

    Weird 12" monitor issue (the LC kind). When I move my mouse or press a key, I see some interference. The cables aren't touching each other. I also notice some scan lines when the screen is completely white or mostly white (i.e. a new Word document). I'm guessing this is the result of too much...

    Performa 200 - Original Loaded Software?

    I'm attempting to restore my Performa 200 to its original state. These computers never came with system restore disks; original owners needed to use Apple Backup to create them. (This was surprisingly common on cheap PCs at the time too; I own an IBM PS/1 which also has a backup program and came...

    Issue with an LC monitor (12” RGB): Interference / Horizontal Lines

    Monitor has interference when cursor is moved or new text appears. This comes in the form of horizontal lines that are light gray against white. It's not an ADB issue due to modifier keys not causing this problem.This usually only happens or can be noticed on blank white screen.The monitor seems...

    StyleWriter I - no ink on paper

    My StyleWriter I won't output any ink on the paper regardless of which cartridge I use. I have used two new ones and blamed it on a defective one the first time. Now, it won't do anything with the other cartridge despite having purged the cartridge multiple times. Everything sounds fine...

    A 1993 Manufacture Mac Classic?

    Was the Classic manufactured longer in countries outside the US, Europe, Australia, and Japan? I found a Classic with what appears to be a 1993 manufacture date and Classic II-style speaker holes on eBay today. It's located in Egypt. Any insight would be helpful here, especially if we have any...

    Small but Important

    I picked something up today that seems trivial. It was inexpensive, coming to $11. Nonetheless, it's something more important than most people realize. A box of DS/DD floppies. You know you've been around this hobby far too long when you know just how nice it is to open up a fresh new box of...

    Old Adobe Fonts - Initializer Questions

    I recently eBayed a pair of Adobe font packages. Both are from the original run, dated mid-1986 (the letters inside even say April 1986). These are in the clamshell plastic cases (think old Disney VHS tapes) with three floppies each. One is a set of printer drivers, one is screen fonts, and one...
