    Power Macintosh 7200 Power Supply

    Recently got a 7200 from a friend at college that is missing most hardware, including a power supply. My 6400 is currently redundant (as I got a 6500), so I'm using part from that for the 7200. Will the 6400's PSU work/fit in the 7200?

    MacRefLib: Reboot

    For my winter break I'll be continuing my development of MacRefLib. Won't be submitting it as a Retrochallenge entry this time around, but will be hoping to reach the 1997 model year by Mid January when college starts again. Still in college right now though - last final is the 20th - so don't...

    Power Macintosh 6500/225 and Multiple Scan 15"

    It's been quite a while since getting a conquest this good, but here it is. Yesterday I was walking around the Chemical Engineering building on my college's campus, turned a corner, and saw a cart filled with a variety of obsolete equipment. A split second later, I recognized the back of a 6500...

    Need OS 8 Drivers for: Farallon EtherMac PC Card

    The blasted floppy I kept my copy on decided to go corrupt itself on the way over to college. Mac Driver Museum's links are dead too. Anyone have a copy of this driver they could give me?

    Used Newton for college notes!

    Today I'm proud to announce that I used my MP 2100 to take notes for an entire period of Chem 121! It worked out fine. I used HW recognition mode for outlining and ink text for examples/equations. It was useful and fun! (ANYTHING to make Chem 121 more interesting. Chem is my least favorite...

    Abysmal Battery Life on Newton MP2100

    I noticed that the battery life on my MP2100 is really bad. I never get the 30 hour life touted by Newton fans - instead, I usually get 2 hrs. at best. The mystery is that the NiMH cells I use in the Newton - each with a capacity of 2500 mAh - are more powerful than the cells used in the Newton...

    PB 1400 Case Hinge Failure

    My PB 1400 was showing that characteristic cracking on the rear display case cover, on either side of the Apple logo. I attempted to repair this (by strengthening the area with glue) but managed to destroy the -very Spindlery- mount points for the left hinge. It's beyond repair - too much...

    Buying a Newton Question

    I was just wondering, what are the pros of buying a MessagePad 2000 series over the 100/200 series models? I don't mean in terms of performance - what features will I get? And can either sync with IMAP (Gmail) email systems?

    iPod mini!

    My friend gave it to me - came with some other old computer equipment that his uncle gave to him. It's in decent condition, although the HD is dead - boots to a Sad iPod and the HD can be heard clicking like mad. I plan on adding a CF card to fix that. Otherwise, a great find. I've been...

    Who has an Asante MacCon?

    I need to know the ratings of the 4 tantalum capacitors on the PDS card. Two on my card blew (still don't know why), and I'd like to resurrect it. Also, is that slot on the MacCon for a custom cache card, or it it a NuBus slot?

    How to unlock Netscape Navigator 2?

    As it is in fact 2011, whenever I Netscape Navigator 2 on my LC, I'm immediately told that the browser has "expired." A quick-and-dirty remedy is to set the system date to one in 1995 or early 1996, but I can't have it that way. is there some patch for Netscape 2 that will unlock it?

    PB1400 Random Freezes

    I've noticed that jostling or shaking my PB1400 will cause an intermittent system freeze (as in total freeze - even the cursor). My first suspect would be the soldering work on the new oscillator I just installed, but is there anything else that might cause these problems? FYI: I have not...

    MacBench 4

    Does anyone know where I can find MacBench 4 online, or possibly even send it to me? I just want to benchmark my overclocked 1400.

    PB 1400 40MHz Overclock

    I just installed a 40 MHz oscillator in my PB1400, replacing the original 33.333 MHz one, as seen here: http://home.comcast.net/~gionpeters/hhhh/pb1400.htm The oscillator, while difficult to solder in (solder points are fragile), seems to be working properly. However, I don't really observe any...

    Installing System 7 Pro (7.1.1) onto a LC 575

    The question is: I know I need a system enabler (number 065), which I have installed by placing it into the System folder. Problem is, it still complains of the system needing to be "updated" at boot time. What do I do?

    Developing my MacRefLib project on my LC 575?

    I'm currently developing a MacTracker-esque Hypercard application called MacRefLib (thread here: http://68kmla.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=16375). Some (but not much!) development has already occurred on a Performa 6400 and a PB 1400c. However, I realize that's there's really nothing...

    Plus trouble!

    I go to turn on my Plus today, and I get to hear this: chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp, ... No display, no bong, and sometimes the FDD starts checking the drive ad infinutum. Turn it off, bring it to my workshop, open 'er up, check the cables, everything...
