    PowerBook G3 PDQ overclock to 333mhz?

    How well does that laptop deal with the extra heat?
  2. Why not just make a wood and metal frame to mount everything and maybe use plexiglass panels for doors?
  3. I think the power button is in different spots on both but if yo want to recase a MB you could just connect a momentary switch from the case directly to the board.
  4. There isn't much you can do with spare motherboards and power supplies since they won't fit into an off the shelf case. For example I snagged a lot of old PPC stuff many years ago from ebay local pickup only from a retired school teacher. He kept a nice G3 Powered PM 7500 with a ton of misc gear but he also gutted an 8600 but kept the motherboard and power supply. Now what exactly can you do with an 8600 MB and PS since they won't fit in anything but a mac 8600/9600 case and finding one of those is pretty difficult. So that board sits on the shelf collecting dust next to its power supply just in case my working 8600 or 9600(s) break.

    Repaired Apple ADB Mouse switch

    Mechanical switches do eventually fail. I ordered some switches for Amiga mice a few years ago to fix a couple with one bad switch and they was pretty easy to swap.

    Bernoulli Drive fixes, ?any experiences anyone

    Did a quick setup test with my init and either the IIsi system could not see it or the system did not boot (could not find my system HD). Will mess around with it more this weekend probably.

    They can be replaced also.

    I didn't know getting these running was problematic so I will fire one up this week and see how it goes.

    Large volumes in a 68030

    Pretty much what pcamen posted. You used a formatter for PPC and the 68k machine didn't like it.

    I just looked at one of my external Bernoulli drives and it is a Iomega 150 Multidisk model. The cool think about it is it has centronics connector on the back and has a switch that you set to SCSI (has a SCSI ID selector ) and the optional IOMEGA Parallel Port so you can connect it to a standard PC (probably much slower).

    I think they would. To be honest I have a couple 90MB? external Bernoulli drives with some media but have not used them yet. I try and snag any external SCSI drive types I can for the collection.

    You might need a 3rd party utility to format them.

    My Quicksilver is keeping me warm! :-D

    I think Intel TDP numbers are a bit off from reality sometimes.

    Brittle plastic OMG!

    What are you trying to do warp the hell out of the plastic?

    NuBus PPC - PDS inplications of RocketSocket overcloking

    I have a Daystar 040/33 running at 48mhz or something like that in a IIci and that works OK (no cache module I think) with a cooling can attached.
