    has anyone seen this before?

    I would say it's the remains of some component that overheated and burned out, but without more information, it's hard to say for sure. c

    Solutions for HDI45 to VGA or DB15?

    The LC I/II/III aren't affected. It seems to be only certain late model '040-based Macs (such as the LC 475 and 605) and early PowerMacs (such as the 6100 and derivatives) that have this "quirk." c

    Making modern iMac G3 Mezzanine peripherals

    What about implementing a mezannine-to-PCMCIA/CardBus adapter? That way, rather than reinventing the wheel, it can benefit from all the various upgrades that are available to the PowerBooks, like Firewire, USB 2.0, SCSI, Wifi, sound, etc. Maybe even video, but I don't know of any CardBus-based...

    Making modern iMac G3 Mezzanine peripherals

    OK, thank you! That's what I thought, but I couldn't remember for certain. So that means that, as a general rule of thumb, if an iMac is Bondi instead of any of the five fruit colors (which were only available on Rev C and D, I believe), then it likely has a functional mezannine slot. c

    Making modern iMac G3 Mezzanine peripherals

    I like the idea! However, I have to agree with @Cory5412 here. There's only so much room in there. If anything, I think a functional clone of the Sonnet Harmoni would be practical, albeit nontrivial, so perhaps that might be a place to start? And also, since only the Rev. A has a functional...

    PowerBook G4 neoprene sleeve 15"

    Anything that fits either a 2006-2008 or 2009-2015 15" MacBook Pro ought to work, as the dimensions are quite similar to those of the 15" PowerBook G4 in my experience (this is especially true of the 2006-2008 MBPs, as they used laregely the same case design as the last PowerBooks)...

    Is it possible to get later versions on Windows to work on Virtual PC 7 for Mac?

    Agreed*, but Vista might actually be remotely possible: Virtual PC 7 for Mac was released in June 2006, just a few months before Vista reached RTM status. The Guest Editions may not work well, if at all, and Aero probably won't be possible, but my guess is that it otherwise ought to at least...

    Quickie project: iPod 4G, now with 128GB of flash storage!

    I have a 1st gen and 3rd gen that each need new drives. Could something like this neat contraption work, or do I need to do it the old fashioned way with a CF adapter? c

    Is it possible to get later versions on Windows to work on Virtual PC 7 for Mac?

    That's an intriguing question! If it does, I'd expect that drivers for most of the virtual hardware would be fairly outdated, and thus not likely to work well. I'd probably go for Windows 7 at the absolute most, since Windows 8.1 and newer require certain CPU instructions that I sort of doubt...

    How many floppy drives can a SWIM chip control? (just curious)

    I'm not so sure about that. The IIgs is a hybrid 8/16 bit system, and the SE is a hybrid 16/24/32 bit system, so I kind of doubt they have much in common architecturally. Similar features, yes, but the implementations of such are likely to be completely different. Perhaps one can study how...

    Share your Apple Quicktake 100/150/200 Photos here!

    I just looked for some QuickTakes on eBay because i want a piece of this action, but hilariously, they cost almost as much as my Nikon D700 DSLR did! c

    Quicksilver Restoration

    Congratulations! I guess this means I'm off the hook for finding my extra, which I never remembered to do.... If I weren't on the wrong coast, I might take you up on that, for pretty much all my glossy plastic G4s (Sawtooth, Quicksilver(s) and MDD) all have scratched up side panels. They...

    Who has a iMac G3 with either a Sonnet Harmoni processor upgrade and or a item that uses the Mezzanine slot?

    I so want one of those Harmonis! Alas, all are too expensive for me (I thought $400 for one back in 2005 was expensive, but in retrospect, that price is actually quite affordable, because these often go for 2x more!). c

    Daystar Genesis MP (again!)

    So it looks like it's running BeOS running Mac OS running Windows 3.1. Do they all run well? c

    TattleTech & System 7.6.1 on Macintosh IIfx crashes

    @Cory5412 To elaborate on your explanation to @Trash80toHP_Mini , 8.0 was the first Mac OS to require an '040 as a minimum, but could be patched to run on some of the fastest '030s, such as the IIfx. Mac OS 8.5 was the first to drop support for booting on 68k (but as Cory later pointed out...

    Mac II drive sled photo?

    I have a II with a giant 5.25" drive in it, and while it's been some time since I've looked at it, I think it's installed on a bracket similar to yours. c

    Looking for GBMac version 1.3.1 - offering a 500$ reward (via paypal) to anyone who can archive/upload it

    Apparently someone on Reddit took it upon themselves to patch one of those blackholes by assembling an archive of pre-2009 softwares on Download.com: I think it mainly includes PC software, though, but one would have to look through it to be certain. c

    Reverse Engineering the Macintosh LC III Logicboard

    Ah, OK! You haven't been saying much about it lately. I figured you were still working on it quietly, but I was curious about your progress. If you're up for it, I eventually wouldn't mind a clone of the backlit Mac Portable logic board made. I even have a broken donor for you to analyze, if...

    Bondi Clamshell!

    Gee whiz! That is way too expensive for a battery! Just a couple years ago they were going for about $100 +/- $10 or $20, and I thought that was expensive. Not anymore! So as @davidg5678 lamented, I guess buying cells for a DIY rebuild, expensive and risky though it may be, makes much more...
