  1. PowerBook 150 - screens all destroyed?!

    The way we used to do it with old game boys (DMG's) was to use a razor blade to separate the digitizer/polarizer with a razor blade and peel it off, then clean the residue with 99% rubbing alcohol and align a new polarizer. Considering that the polarizer already looks like its done all you need to do is peel, clean, get a big sheet of polarizing film and some LOCA glue and have a polarizer that will last another 100 years.
  2. Checker board Screen

    Might be ram isnt seated correctly or the ROM's are shot.
  3. I have a source with low cost and unlimited quantities, hint, it starts with C and ends with ina. Alibaba exists Just get a proxy to talk to a connector company, there are still ones who produce eurodin connectors. Min quanties are usually a thousand, but at 0.90 per piece. If you needed the 3 different connectors it wouldnt be more than 300 and you'd be able to make a 1000 adapters OwO
  4. RaSCSI Development Thread

    2 updaterinos, both pushed to the git. 1. is the final v1. version of the internal board as small as I can get it: And here is a din-25 version for use externally. Would be good for people with multiple computers. Probably will order the din25 version soon. Will will see :^)
  5. RaSCSI Development Thread

    PCB alone would be as cheap as you could make it The $35 would be a at cost full assembled board. If you ordered from your local batch house it might be $20 for 10 boards? ($2ish per, don't quote me on that) Depends on how long you want to wait. If you need a board /NOW/ I think theres a japanese version for $100+intl shipping, and you need to buy a pi. I'm probably going to do a mini design tomorrow to see if I can get it to 1 pi (harhar) wide and/or using a 50pin scsi for external use. Edit: I'm looking for work atm, so I'll try to post updates as quick as possible in between application emails .
  6. RaSCSI Development Thread

    Sorry for not updating more Been busy with life stuff. Anyway I've made a new github (lost access to my old one) so this is the first thing on there. https://github.com/fran-cap/RASCSI-68kmlaver That has the eagle files, the extra libraries I used, and information about parts. I did a cost estimate and it would come out to around $35+s/h per so for each board, perhaps cheaper if I can find a good supplier. Going to try and post more stuff soon.
  7. Does the SE/30 live up to the hype?

    I think the 128k is still the most magical because it feels more modern than most computers of that era (no I don't own a xerox) Its not the fastest or most capable Macintosh but it shows the idea of a "all in one" better than any computer before it. (yes I know about the ibm 5155 etc but those are dos/386 based)
  8. Easy solution, just use rubber washers.
  9. You'll probably want to decouple all of the power lines at least once and put a big decoupling cap near each 5v line near the 3 sockets. Thats around 7 or so caps, which you can clearly see on the twinspark .
  10. Going to whip up something quick for power. 1 sec.
  11. http://www.journaldulapin.com/2017/09/03/a-floppy-drive-for-the-bandai-pippin/ Found this recently. Very interesting. P.S. Also mods make the title "pippin" please
  12. Compact Mac retina display

    I've had good luck with the IP series of mosfets from infenon, you can get a 800V 5A transistor for a little under a dollar these days. I mean you'll probably need a huge ass heat-sink but eh, the gate capacitances and Rds resistances are much, much lower than the late 90s
  13. RaSCSI Development Thread

    Still a work in progress. I've been trying to secure a supply of the bus chips so that I can make more than 2 of these at a decent price. Taking a bit but should be done soon. After I get a batch of these done I'll release the eagle files. If you need one /right now/ I think there's a guy in japan with a board but its proprietary connector for the pc98 afaik.
