  1. Yeah, was confusing considering the link light on the hub/switch side was lighting up. Supposedly that lights up with RX wires are working. Yeah weird. Which daughterboard do you have? I have one with Thick and RJ45 (and a little slide switch), and the one that didn't work when flipped had Thick, Thin, and RJ45.

    Yup indeed. My confusion came from expecting a screw head of some sort. Thank you all!

    Oh I am wrong! Its see through but the inside is the hex shape, so its not a screw but its a barrel that spins within the "straw". Ahhhh maybe that will help you SE30_Neal!

    Yup, its gonzo! Here is a pic, I'm holding a blue piece of cardboard behind it.
  5. Success! After more experimentation, it turns out the ribbon cable to the daughter card was flipped backwards. So remember: white dot to white dot! Don't know if it just never worked for the previous owner, or maybe it worked on the BNC / Thick connection the way it is, but there you go.

    Right, so there should be something in that spring in that tube.. makes sense! I guess if I can get my hands on a parts machine I might be able to thread one out and thread one in? Or just replace the whole part altogether. Mystery solved, thanks for everyones help and insight!

    Don't have it handy at the moment, but, the hole on shield lines up with a hole on the PCB which leads to the tube/straw thing circled, and it is hollow. No screw or hex anything inside. Its like looking down an empty toilet paper tube

    Right! I read about the dangers of using a screwdriver, so I have a whittled down wooden chopstick It worked for brightness. But... there is _nothing_ to turn in the width. It is a hole, it looks like a metal spring in a straw and I can see right through it. I could push a skewer through. So I am confused, I am supposed to turn the "spring"?
  9. Hi I have recently acquired (another, I don't have a problem I promise) SE/30 with an Asante MacCon, but when I plug it into the switch the light on the card does not come on. It does come on though at the router end. I have an existing SE/30 with a MacCon as well, and that machine does show a link light on both ends (same cable). The only difference between the two is that are the connectors available: The working one has the "Thick" and the RJ45 with a little switch, and the non-working one has the "Thick", RJ45, and BNC connectors. Any quick thoughts? I found a manual online and I didn't see anything obvious.... Asante Troubleshooter detects the card and passes the tests (minus the loopback and ping-pong one). Thanks!

    Bumping an old thread, but, have a machine where width is way out of whack! So when I went to adjust the width portion there is "nothing" in the width adjustment hole. That is, I see something that looks like a wound spring in a metal tube where I expected to see a "pot" or a "screwhead". I see one in the height adjustment hole but there is a literal hole in the width one. Thoughts?
  11. I've cobbled together another server that uses https://github.com/tghw/macproxy instead of loband to help with links. Works much better, lots more sites work. I'll clean it up and send a patch again soon!
  12. All on a 16mhz machine SE30Feeds.mov
  13. I didn't have an account so I made one because I had to try, but got stuck because it was coming back as an empty page. Debugged until I discovered I had no tags, and it doesn't work without Tags So I just dumped all feeds if there were no tags. Yup, just had to reformat the URL to get loband to work. Here attached is a patch that will do it. Loband isn't great but it works for HN comments and thats most important Thanks for getting this started!! Made browsing on my SE/30 much more useful! loband.patch
  14. Pretty cool! Surfing some feeds from my SE/30. I had to make a few changes to get it going for whatever reason. And I have some ideas about using loband.org, PR coming your way!
