    Switzerland: PowerBook PCMCIA Expansion Module (with PB 540c)

    Unless it's a PB 550c but the seller would surely have mentioned that.

    Switzerland: PowerBook PCMCIA Expansion Module (with PB 540c)

    There is an auction (for want of a better word) in Switzerland for a PowerBook PCMCIA Expansion Module (rev. C, I think) and it comes with a free working PowerBook 540c, cables & charger. At CHF 600 (roughly USD 660), it is much too pricey for my liking but there may be some collectors who find...

    Look what the Easter bunny brought

    I had a look for an AppleSauce and found that they are sold out, which is a pity. It looks like something worth saving for. What any equivalents are there? https://applesaucefdc.com/

    Look what the Easter bunny brought

    I don‘t. What is AppleSauce? Does it make a bit-for-bit copy of the disk?

    Look what the Easter bunny brought

    To go with my 1985 system, which at the moment is a 512K, a LaserWriter Plus waiting to be fixed and MacWrite on 400K floppy, I present what I think v1.2 of Aldus PageMaker. These last two pictures are of a Macally 6-port FireWire card. I had never seen one before and bought it immediately...

    I think that you have it. I may be thinking of that.

    8.6 crashing on a Power PC upgraded Quadra?

    I seem to remember a thread on this topic a few years ago on 68kmla.org where a rare newer version had been found and was posted in the thread. I'll go look for it when I get home.

    Thunder IV GX - What am I missing?

    In real world applications how do you know whether QuickDraw acceleration is on? What is faster? MacDraw? CAD applications? Do windows redraw faster? @ObeyDaleks Don't be too disappointed with the speed of the Radius Thunder GX IV on a Mac II. This card was designed for high-end Quadras and the...

    8.6 crashing on a Power PC upgraded Quadra?

    What version of the driver are you using? It's a long shot but there may be a later version that may help.

    Driver for Unity Digital FireWire CompactFlash Reader

    There is a Mac Pro going cheaply near me and it has two cards (which I assume are sound processing cards of some kind). And while I don't need another Mac Pro, it might be worth getting for the cards alone. What cards are these and what do they do? Thanks.

    My take on the Quadra 950 PSU

    Well done! They are noisy beasts, and, of late, prone to failure. After only 30 years too. @BadGoldEagle also did good work with the PSU of his Q950. https://68kmla.org/bb/index.php?threads/bges-take-on-the-quadra-900-950-atx-psu-mod.35014/

    Beige G3 restoration questions

    Could it be a bus-speed mismatch problem? I'm fairly sure that G4s can run at 66MHz. It ran originally at 100MHz in the Yikes!.
