  1. @pcamen I did rebuild the internal battery for a powerbook 2400c only. It is not difficult to do. Unfortunately it did nothing for the powerbook 2400c, it remains in GLOD mode.

    SCSI to IDE adapters (bridges)

    I suppose that economic circumstances kind of suggest scsi 50 to 68 pin adapters and a 68 pin SCSI drive.

    SCSI to IDE adapters (bridges)

    So the main issue here is that these are not manufactured any more, or so it seems. I sent an email off to Acard with what my goal is, a 50 pin to IDE bridge/adapter. We'll see what they say but as you pointed out, these adapters today are incredibly expensive.
  5. Hello As everyone knows SCSI hard drives are becoming scarce and there are SCSI to memory cards but how about SCSI to IDE. I think this would be a pretty good solution. Has anyone installed one of these on their vintage scsi only macs? The first one I found on using google shows that these are not cheap. Any good source to consider, any where in EU or N.AM would be good.

    Apple PHX 100

    Another obscure marketing name is the MLS200. It appears to come up after searching for PHX100

    Congratulations. Before I jump to the other channel you mentioned. Are you willing to upload that to me so that I can get in on archive.org unless it's there already.

    Do you know the name of the file you are after? I am downloading a bunch of japanese related mac sites as I write this, Maybe in the resulting stack of files I can find it.

    I acan give you access to FTP, please image that disk to me and I will get in archive.org through one of the archivists. If possible scan the disk itself or a photo will do. That diskette will absolutely deteriorate over time unless it is preserved. In terms of the Japanese material, have you tried to google translate what you are looking for in Japanese and then google search it or search it on the waybackmachine? If you want FTP access, which I recommend, please provide that answer to me over PM so that I can arrange it even today. I will then send you a link to the iamge on archive.org. Please follow-up so that we can preserve this rarity for all.

    SE/30 with an as-yet unidentified expansion

    I decided to run the following command on the waybackmachine but I don't if this is what I should be after so if anyone interested writes back I can perform another scrape. Here is the command: wayback_machine_downloader -d /Users/alexsantos/Desktop/interware -c 3 --only "/\.(hqx|sit|bin|zip|tar|z|gz|uue)$/i" www.iijnet.or.jp I then created a text file of the tree and it's attached here so you can learn if any of these items should be uploaded somewhere for whoever needs it. Maybe I will just create an open directory with an anonymous login so folks can just pull it off mt FTPSE server. I am more than willing to rerun the downloader. What would help me most is if I have an old web address(es). Cheers! Interware.TREE.txt

    Quick headsup (I will read this post entirely to help on finding software) Have you looked at the internet archive gerenally? How about using the waybackmachine? I put up an article on medium.com, titled "A WayBack Machine Downloader Using the Terminal to Excavate Digital Artifacts from Archived Websites on the Internet Archive" that might come in handy. If you want me to use the downloader I will be happy to do so, I just need some leads like company name, board name, just about any clue to narrow down to a few targets and then try the downloader to see what comes back.
  13. Excellent advice. Thank you for reminding folks of what a safety procedure looks like.

    PowerBook 150 - screens all destroyed?!

    Ok, I feel pretty dumb, polarizer, as in Polaroid as in the film that is being peeled away in all this talk. Sorry about my complete fumble. I should read first instead of littering this gem of a post.

    PowerBook 150 - screens all destroyed?!

    This is one very interesting post. Man I wish there was a wiki. I have to read this entirely as I have some of these affected models. I better go and check them out. @Franklinstein, excuse my ignorance but what is a polarizer?
