    Possible Conquest: Working 128k, Maybe Cheap?

    Also, make sure it just says Macintosh on the back, and not Macintosh 128k (which is the later budget release sold along-side the 512k.)

    Apple IIe - Finally!

    Exceptional job on cleaning up the //e. I fully recommend you check out ADT Pro so you can transfer disk images back and forth. I also recommend checking out a2heaven if you feel like you need to spend another $1500 on your Apple II in aftermarket upgrades and gizmos. Just off the top of my head, I also fully recommend the following games in no particular order: Conan Montezuma's Revenge Miner 2049er Pitfall II Ultima III Ultima IV Ultima V Bard's Tale I Bard's Tale II Bard's Tale III Dragonwars (was originally Bard's Tale IV, changed at the last minute) Wavy Navy Maze Craze Construction Set Pinball Construction Set Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves (aka Age of Adventure) Minuteman RescueRaiders The Bilestoad Stellar 7 Impossible Mission Impossible Mission II Epyx Summer Games Castle Wolfenstein Beyond Castle Wolfenstein Well, I'll be here all day recommending all the great games for the Apple II.

    Mac Cards and other

    I think this is the wrong forum, should be in the Trading Post section.

    First conquest in a long time...

    According to Folklore, it was apart of the OS as a desk accessory. It wasn't a game that was written and published to be sold. Wikipedia makes that distinction as well. Through the Looking Glass wasn't the first game, but it's the first game to be written and published by Apple as a game.

    I believe they did a handful of Apple II titles, but it's certainly the only classic Macintosh game ever written and published by them.

    Oops, forgot pics.

    Just got an unopened (still shrinkwrapped) copy of Through the Looking Glass. This is going on my Very Special Shelf. I'm not sure I want to even open it. It's so pretty.

    Bringing a G4 Cube back to life

    I have an old string of Christmas lights from the 1960s. 2 prongs (not even polarized.) It looks normal, except it has a tiny fuse build into the plug. Fuse is still good.

    Bringing a G4 Cube back to life

    You can get GFCI cords in the U.S. too, but from what I've seen they're even bigger than the U.K. cables.
  10. Unfortunately I hear the wine, and it causes my ears to ring horribly and gives me a migraine. I've been investigating swapping out the tube for a 15" LCD TV. Either that, or just putting hot glue on anything and everything that might vibrate.

    SCSI Voodoo HowTo

    I don't know if this is bad termination, but it was the only way I could get my computer to boot with all my devices attached: SCSI BUS 0 - MB --- HDD --- JAZ --- CDR --- MO1 --- PT:MO2:AT HDD: ID0 JAZ: ID2 CDR: ID3 MO1: ID4 MO2: ID5 I left 1 open for a second HDD or Apple brand CD-ROM. If I don't have the passive terminator (with the pass-through connector), even though I have the end of the SCSI chain terminated, it still fails. I also tried switching around the order of the devices, but that didn't help. It also fails if I have just a passive terminator at the end. For some reason, this combination works. If I don't have it, then it won't detect one or more of my devices (including the HDD itself.)

    Apple Studio 21 inch CRT....dang

    If you leave it unplugged for a day, there shouldn't be any risk of getting shocked.

    MAC 512k

    If it was great condition with all the accessories, accessory boxes, manuals & disks, original box (also in great condition), etc., I'd say $500 to $750. If it's vanilla but has any upgrades like a 6MB MacSnap and/or HyperDrive, maybe $100 to $200 depending on the upgrade.

    Multiprocessor SE/30!

    @Trash80toHP_Mini I think so.
  15. Those sound cool. I've never heard of them. I know people always talk about Macintosh Garden, but there're a lot of shareware and freeware titles that don't make it on there, like these two Monitor apps. My "The Art of Darkness" book mentions 4 or 5 freeware and shareware After Dark modules that are now unobtanium. All the original FTPs & websites have gone dark, all the commercial sites only ever hotlinked, and no one bothered to back them up.
