    Color Classic VGA Mod. the CORRECT way

    Yep! The same person that was doing it the other day! They made another account!

    Insane SCSI to FW prices

    Ah, okay. I was thinking there was more than that for some reason (maybe there was last I checked).

    Insane SCSI to FW prices

    There’s a *lot* of them on eBay from China (If I remember correctly) so it kinda looked as if they were still being made, but maybe not.

    PBG3 PDQ 14.1 TFT LCD Display replacement

    85 dollars? That’s a LOT for an LCD for a PowerBook G3 in my opinion. I think for that price you’d be better off getting a junker machine with a good LCD panel. Not only would that be cheaper, but it’ll also give you some more extra parts. Also, if you can figure out the exact model of your LCD, you can search for it on eBay and there may be someone with a reasonably priced one.
  5. That cube 486 is insanely awesome.
  6. Wow, that’s also a sweet looking clone. Never seen one of those before. The cube design is very interesting.

    IIvx not powering on.

    I’m not 100% sure. I’ve never owned a IIvx, so I don’t know too much about them.

    IIvx not powering on.

    Has the logic board been recapped? The IIvx is definitely old enough that it’s going to more than likely have bad caps.
  9. Great find! I’ve gotta say, I’ve never been very into the Mac/Apple clones, but this is totally awesome! I’d actually like to have one of these. The Motorola Starmax is another exception. I’d like to have one of those too.

    Someone should get this!

    I don’t think OS X is too bad on a G3, but that’s just my opinion. I’d probably do an OS 9/OS X dual boot on one of these. I actually put Tiger on my one of my iMac G3s and it runs very good IMO.

    Insane SCSI to FW prices

    Probably the same reason SCSI to USB is 100+ dollars........ It’s called price-gouging. Make a specialty item in China for $3.00 and sell it $350. Stupid, isn’t it?

    My quest is at an end

    Great find! The XCEED is definitely my favorite SE/30 upgrade. Absolute crying shame they didn’t make more of them. Not a huge fan of the paint, but I’m interested to see how well the paint preserved the case. Brake fluid might work to strip it.

    what causes LCD rot?

    No problem. Glad I could help You did a great job at cleaning that LCD up! As far as the polarizing film goes, I have no clue. Hopefully someone else will chime in that knows more.

    what causes LCD rot?

    It’s the adhesive on the polarizing film rotting. I think all of us laptop collectors sooner or later are going to start having to learn how to replace the polarizing film. I’ve actually got an LCD with this problem (it had it when I received it) that I had been a playing with trying to replace the film on it. Haven’t messed with it in quite a while though. But I do still have it, so I’ll dig it back out one of these days. What you are seeing that looks like cracks is likely just the old adhesive. It sometimes shrinks and produces a “cracked” looking pattern. The LCD is likely fine underneath that mess of old, rotten adhesive. I found that acetone does a pretty decent job of softening the glue, and then you can scrape it off.

    Coolest thing I've found this year

    These are definitely one of the most comfortable mice ever made. I have a small collection of them, as well as an optical one like you found! But mine is heavily worn. The “with IntelliEye” logo is pretty much gone. Yours looks mint.
