    Open Apple Pin Badge

    For all I know it could be for a New York Film Festival, but I'm getting nothing.

    Open Apple Pin Badge

    Greetings. I've just acquired this "Open Apple" pin badge, and as you'd expect searching "Open" and "Apple" in any combination and context is not giving me viable links, and an image search yields naught. I'm hoping the collective brains trust might recall this pin, and be able to reveal it's history. Who knows, it might not even have anything to do with our Apple, but . . . . .

    PowerBook G4 Aluminium disassembly?

    I used the iFixit guide. Kept the screws for each stage on separate card, clearly marked for position. Slow and steady, and you'll get there.

    Retrobrite Failure

    My preferred retrobriting is http://www.callapple.org/vintage-apple-computers/apple-ii/shining-a-light-on-retrobrite/and Javier has demonstrated it at the past 3 KansasFests https://www.kansasfest.org/ and the last KansasFest demonstration was also recorded on Assembly Lines #52 https://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjuo-uO47LWAhUIgLwKHXtUDtkQtwIILjAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DaFGS9xaaO_M&usg=AFQjCNEIW4nJDIw7rCty3vx475GPM_1z9Q Always test with something expendable, or less precious, and keep an eye on it. You cannot just leave it alone.

    HD20 failure rate?

    Just recently used my new FloppyEmu to boot my 512K with HD20 support. One of the two HD20s with cables worked, and I'm yet to test the third as it needs a data cable, but now I know where I can "borrow" one from.

    SATA SSDs

    I'm using an OWC 60GB SATA SSD in my QS2002 as the OWC drives onboard SandForce processor handles TRIM support. http://blog.macsales.com/21641-with-an-owc-ssd-theres-no-need-for-trim When I did have a SATA/PATA adapter on it 9.2.2 recognised the drive, but the SATA controller card I've got it directly connected to now is only OSX friendly.

    IICI can't connect to QuickTake 100 or 150 H.E.L.P!

    I found the easiest way to access my QT100/150 cameras is on my old Acer Aspire One (A150), running XP, using a serial/usb adapter and the windows version of camera connection software.
  9. Connect the old HDD (external case) to the iBook and boot from it. Use Disk Utility to re-partition the SSD, and then use CCC, or similar, to clone the HDD to the SSD.
  10. New iOS for phones . . . . . . . New OSX for Macs . . . . . . Now it's the turn of the venerable Apple][ line to feel the new OS love. Announcing the new and improved PRODOS 2.4 http://www.callapple.org/uncategorized/announcing-prodos-2-4-for-all-apple-ii-computers/ PRODOS 2.4 is smaller than the last "official" release, and boots faster as well, but most importantly it is compatible with ALL Apple][s, all the way back to the 1977 Apple][ Integer ROM, all the way through to the IIgs ROM3 running on 6502, 65c02 or 65816 processors. Download and enjoy today.
  11. I've matched my Cube with the 17" LCD. Seems the best aesthetic match.

    Dual 2.7GHz G5 worthwhile?

    Last series of the G5 PowerMacs (11,2) are air cooled with PCIe, and is my preferred G5 beast. I picked up a Dual Core 2.0 (http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/powermac_g5/specs/powermac_g5_dual_2.0.html) cheap, and it is doing most of what I used to do on my venerable QS2002, except of course when I those rare occasions I need to boot 9.2 or use 10.4+Classic with more grunt than the Cube450, or iMac800 can provide. The dual 2.7 was only available in the liquid cooled PCI-X varity.

    Opened up my 512K

    Bugger!! I didn't even notice the typo, and I don't seem to be able to edit the original post?

    Leopard on Cube

    Make sure the cube is on firmware version 4.1.9 Have a look at http://www.cubeowner.com/forums/index.php?act=home - the best site for for 'Cube Lovers' 10.5.8 works OK, but 10.4.11 is zippier

    Opened up my 512K

    The back room is finally cleared so now I'm getting my 512K tidied up and cleaned before I fire it up for the first time (hopefully not the last) and then sorting out the 4xHD20s and SCSI HDD I've scrounged up for it. So, popped the 512K open to check the caps and general condition. Pleasantly surprised that the analogue board was in such good condition, all the caps look good, and no little puddles of destruction evident. Pulled the motherboard out, and still looking good, but what's that down (up?) there? Close up SCARLAN MEGARAM ?? Never heard of it/them, but looks like I've got 512KB more than I expected Not much dust, so a general clean, quick clean of the FDD (must check that eject motor later), put it back together and dropped in my Finder copy. YAY! it boots. Time to double check that RAM So, has anyone familiar with SCARLAN MEGARAM upgrades? Not that I'm going to loose any sleep over it, but it'd be nice to find out about the company and upgrade. Next weekend, try and find that HD20 INIT floppy that's hiding around here somewhere to start looking at the HD20s after they get their clean and check-ups before powering them on. Still got that first hacked up one I found years ago, so hopefully I can get one, or two of them operational.
