    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

    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....

    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

    Farallon Fast EtherTX for TAM

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

    haplain's never-ending quest

    It was in this group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/appleiii/ Couldn't figure out a way to link directly to the post.

    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

    Hmm - someone on FB just popped up with one of those half-width HD cases that came with an Apple ///... funny that after never seeing such a thing, two separate sightings happen so close together. That HD in the clear case looks more like a Widget than a ProFile. Must use some kind of external power supply? Doesn't look like there's much room for one in the case.
  9. If you get extra serial dongles for the 2x00 series, I could use 1 or 2.

    I paid more than $20, more like a nice dinner out. Worth it in my book.

    Craigslist can be your friend - and always be asking questions... I answered a CL ad to pick up a period Sun monitor (GDM-1962) for some of my lunchboxes. Nice older gentleman; asked if he had any other items and he mentioned he also had "some old Apple stuff" in his garage that he'd picked up over time at 3M surplus auctions... I came home with the IIfx (128MB RAM, 230MB HD, Ethernet card, monitor) a dual drive SE and a 512k with no keyboard, but didn't have enough cash on me for the 2 IIcx or 2 Quadra 700, along with a couple more of the Hi-res RGB monitors. One of the Q700s looked pretty beat up, I may just get one IIcx and the good Q700. IIfx was clean as a whistle inside. Put in two good batteries and it fired right up. I did a quick 7.5.3 install and all seems well. Guy also had a bunch (like 19) NCD and HP Xterminals and an HP9000 to run them all. While there was a time in my life I would have thought that was fun, I had to pass on that many glass monitors! He says he also has some plotters and other "goodies" in storage.
  12. Byrd - you are correct. However they were made, the brackets worked great in my Cube.
  13. That's what I used to put a Superdrive in my "good" Cube - along with the accelerated CPU. I think his forum name was "Paris", or had Paris as part of it. He was a knowledgable guy, and Cubeowner was a great resource!

    Boy, does that drive whine sound familiar!
