      Just think, having a Quadra 950 in 1992 would be like having a Mac Pro today… except with more slots, more expandability, and on-board SCSI!

    • Hi,  I took out my Beige G3 tower to see the bezels. There is a zip-specific bezel but what is missing is a 2.5 inch bay bezel. I have to use the floppy bay at the top for my MO drive.  The bezels for the G3 tower I would love to see are:  1. bezels that can accommodate 2.5" drives (and card-readers and front-facing ports etc);  2. the upper bezel with bays for 5.25" & 2.5" devices;  3. a bezel that can accommodate the SD card from an IDE-to-SD card adaptor. 4. a bezel that can accommodate a double height drive(like the big MO drives).   ta, aa
    • Oh, and again, if you build your own power supply you will have a new one, not an old one that can fail you at any time. 
    • For me, it started with this YouTube movie. A power supply for a 23 inch cinema display will have other technical specificationsthan the 30 inch one. The 23 inch power supply is 90 watt, also 24,5 volt And 3,7 ampère. (The 30 inch has 150 watt And 6,5 ampère)  I have always understood that you can use a larger power supply on a smaller display but not the other way around    
    • Any info on how to build one of these?   I have a 23" Cinema HD display without a power supply, and until I can get one, I have to assume it's dead (I'd like to determine otherwise; in a pinch, can I use the power supply from a 20" Cinema Display?)   c
    • I use a previous version of this TP-Link WiFi adapter in Client Mode. It converts your ethernet connection to WiFi and is compatible with all modern networks. It’s also USB powered. It has allowed me to get something as old as the Mac IIx connected to WiFi. So, it’s not a dongle per se, but it avoids a lot of the headache of dongles as well and you can use it with multiple setups. Here’s a link to the item on Amazon UK:   https://www.amazon.co.uk/TP-LINK-TL-WR802N-Wireless-Enterprise-Computing/dp/B00TACCPUW
