    LaserWriter IINT flashing no paper, now flashing both no paper and jam

    Very likely a bad power supply block. Not hard to replace. It's the same part as used in HP Laserjets of the period. My old notes say these are the suitable part numbers. Of course, you can recap/repair the one you have. RG9-0205 RG9-0319 HP SX-ACPM-B

    Can anyone lend a hand configuring a Shiva FastPath 5?

    Funny, mine did not have ears, either. I have a bunch of various in a box somewhere. If I find some that work and can send a set along, I will.

    Can anyone lend a hand configuring a Shiva FastPath 5?

    A little thread necro, but look at what I found in the teardown pile at Free Geek Twin Cities! Fastpath 5R - basically two FP5 boards in a rackmount case. I never thought I'd see one in the wild. Bummer is that it has only the 10Base-2 modules. Would love to find/trade for either the AUI...

    IIci etc. ATX to 10pin Adapter

    If you have spares, I'd happily pay for a couple plus shipping to me. If not, I'll just go ahead and order up the stuff and make my own.

    Franklin Ace 2200 keyboard?

    Free Geek Twin Cities recently got a donation of a Franklin Ace 2200, but unfortunately without they keyboard. I thought I would ask here in case anyone might have a spare or know of some other solutions to at least see what the functionality is of this guy. I see some older posts on VCF.org...

    Setting up a PC Trasporter on a IIGS

    Oh good! I have one of these and many of the pieces, but haven't taken the time to figure it all out. This will be both a guide and a spur to action!

    Apple Network Server 500 lives (sort of)

    Good to know! I'm OK for now, but will hit you up if I ever fall down this hole again!

    I just bought a rare computer that isn't a Mac, but which looks like one for an interesting reason...

    They look cool - I remember them from back in the day. I seem to remember that yes, they were almost IBM compatible :)

    Apple Network Server 500 lives (sort of)

    Oh yes - done and done! :) I had thought I removed the battery from my ANS, but a new logic board/CPU/RAID card later were the price for not checking! Was able to source the logic board and CPU as Apple parts, but had to get a generic Mylex RAID card and move over the Apple specific ROM from...

    Apple Network Server 500 lives (sort of)

    Nice! Be aware that with the battery out (which is a good idea, ask me how I know) the NVRAM may not hold the boot device string. Make a note of it if you can. For example, with my ANS with RAID card, the boot command is boot pci1/dac960/sd@8:aix You can set this in NVRAM with the setenv...
