  1. Removing Apple Standard Keyboard Keycaps

    I think if I was ever gonna do it again, I'd get a keycap puller. I was just impatient and didn't want to wait for one to be delivered.
  2. Removing Apple Standard Keyboard Keycaps

    It took a little fiddling to get the technique down, but I've now popped all the keycaps off the keyboard with a screwdriver. It really wasn't as bad as I was thinking it would be, though my fingers are a bit sore. What worked for me was to put the screwdriver between the cap and the black switch from the back corner, then slowly lever it off while holding the key in place with my free hand. Thanks for the advice.
  3. Greyscale on SE/30?

    I was given an SE/30 for Christmas that I'm now working on now (just waiting on some caps and I can put it back together). I've seen some references to possibly being able to run greyscale on the internal monitor using a Radius Color Pivot IIsi, but unfortunately all the links (which go to this forum) seem to be dead, and I've had no luck digging them up with the search. The threads I've seen referenced are "IIsiColorPivotII_PDS_Card_HackProjectâ„¢" and "Techknightâ„¢ - SE/30 Greyscale MOD /w IIsi video card", as well as some references to a 'bobtail' mod to get the card to physically fit inside the SE/30's case. If someone can point me in the right direction for this (or even just tell me that it isn't actually possible), I'd really appreciate it.
  4. I've got an Apple Standard Keyboard (model M0116) which is pretty dirty. It seems to me that the easiest way to get it fully clean would be to pull the keycaps off so I can really scrub them. I'm really worried about breaking something, is there a trick to pulling the caps off, or any gotchas I should I know before going into this? Or would I be best off leaving the caps on and just cleaning as well as I can with them in place? Thanks.
