  1. Yes - on my Genesis MP 4-way BeOS uses all four procs.
  2. I didn't know they were different between the top and bottom, other than color.

    Factory 32mb Video Card for G4 Cube

    The connectors will likely not line up, but as I said, I put mine in without the backplate and it works fine. As you said, if you're not going to be constantly plugging/unplugging I don't think you'll have a problem.

    Factory 32mb Video Card for G4 Cube

    Find an Apple Radeon 7500, take off the slot plate and throw it in. No flashing necessary, totally supported in any OS a Cube can run, no hassle. Unless you are constantly plugging/unplugging the monitor cable it will be fine. The Apple card supports ADC displays as well as VGA. It's my favorite card to put into the Cube. Anything bigger/better/faster is wasted unless you have a CPU upgrade, etc. and I don't know if you want to get on the CPU/VRM/Fan treadmill with your Cube My 2 cents... Edit - there's currently a seller on the 'Bay for $12.00 BIN with plenty available. I may buy a couple myself!
  5. Agreed - I've heard about them, but never seen even a picture of one "in the wild". Would be very cool!
  6. I've got the beige Genesis MP Quad. These guys are beasts. Size and build quality make the Quadra 950 seem weak and puny BTW, they are fun BeOS machines!

    Booksale Oddity: M0191 Laserwriter Plus Kit

    Hmm - I have a straight original Laserwriter (that I haven't used in years - a shame). Seems like this upgrade would be right up my alley. Let me think about what I have as trade bait

    Scutboy's Stuff

    Even though I had a workable 6V battery I could have retrofitted, I popped on eBay for one of the 3D printed replacements from 360alaska. Works like charm! Deciding now whether I should make/buy the 34-pin -> 50 pin adapter cable and put in a SCSI2SD....

    Scutboy's Stuff

    Today's work in the Nerd Corner. I have two of these things. One is still totally dead after recap. This one came back after recap, but had a bad display. I swapped in the display of the other one, and all seems well. I have a 6 volt battery running via jumper cables behind the scenes. Just need to figure out how to fit and mount it. HD is loud as well. May be shopping with alaska360 for one of his adapter cables, and maybe a "ready to go" battery

    Too bad - I could have sent you the software a lot cheaper!

    haplain's never-ending quest

    Dog Cow - totally missed that auction. Pretty neat stuff! Fun to think about the "could have beens" from back in the day. BTW - having fun with all the goodies I picked up from you last fall

    Newton eMate 300 - not switching on/power on

    Have you tried a hard reset? Sometimes needed in these situations to get the power circuitry back to a sane state: https://www.macrepaircentral.us/emate-300/resetting-the-emate.html
