    SE/30 Xceed greyscale adapter cloning thread

    ...hmmm, is this Micron Xceed Grayscale Kit so much special? What makes them so rare and pricy at all? I mean...mine just layed inside a cardboard box for some years now - never ever really used it, the kit came out of my SE/30 as I built it back to stock. I just tested/tried this Xceed Kit a few times this year but couldn't find much fun using it sure, 256+ gray scales look pretty fantastic but... My recorded video with this Micron Xceed Grayscale Kit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZsUVtx3pP8Y I like my b/w SE/30 like it is ... I am open for trade offers if someone wants this 'Unicorn Kit' ...first time some of my tradeworthy stuff is kind of "goldweight" - there is also a thread already: cheers, Marcus
  2. Oh nice Idea Well I do in fact have both Apple IIc models around - the //c (5 25" floppy) and the IIc Plus (3.5" floppy). I mainly use the //c as a backup, copy & transfer station for my old disks or as a service to other people (who for example wants to get their old files or exams or just former work stuff transfered from their 30 years old 5.25" disks to a modern media) and rarely also sometimes just for a little BASIC fun The IIc Plus on the other side is just actually a small "gaming station" I'm not sure if these things are suitable for the Newsletter thing, but just my 2 cents Marcus (from Germany, actually on VAC in China)

    Thanks @Trash80toHP_Mini I just thought it looks right perfect placed over my bench - it's the place where I service all my machines or other people's machines / Lisa's that come to me

    Yeah fun fact, I really tried on that Classic board even restored some traces and CPU pins with wires...but didn't help much - now it's a 'classy' art thing on the wall I did the same with some of my Lisa boards and an early Macintosh 128k board too - but good thing here is, they all still work after their repair

    Connecting a ZIP drive to a Macintosh Plus

    You just need some drivers / tools - and for sure a suitable 25/25pin straight cable as scsi cable. If you have another Macintosh with OS 7.x available, I can send you my files/images it depends on your startup disk whre to put the iomega driver file. usually you have to put it under the System Folder .. take a look on my Video - sorry, it's long and only German audio .. but should help a little:

    Hi friends silly question... does someone already modeled the Color Classic front badge/logo? I really would like to print me a personalized insert logo for my Mystic & Takky upgrades .. I don't want to repaint or destroy their originals. I can print these myself (but I'm way too noob on free hand modeling) - got an small but awesome Prusa i3 for this job just yesterday I printed me a first try backbezel for my Mystic - not bad for the first time bezel print. ...sad (stupid) thing only was the finishing process with a cutter went wrong just cut myself Thanks Marcus
