      Just think, having a Quadra 950 in 1992 would be like having a Mac Pro today… except with more slots, more expandability, and on-board SCSI!

    • This is good to hear!! I had gone ahead and ordered one, so I am looking forward to trying it out.   You just drop in drive images and update a text file right on the SD card, right? It reminds me of Basilisk (emulator) where you edit the prefs file to tell it what disks to load and CD-ROM etc.
    • Since 72 pin SIMMs are more affordable in higher capacities and they're electrically compatible with the 30 pin SIMMs. Each group of four 30 pin SIMMs map to a single 72 pin one. So how about some board-to-board adapter with two angled 72pin SIMMs to replace the eight 30 pin ones? Or even better, some modern-ish soldered on 128MB memory module that solders into the holes left by the 30 pin SIMMs?
    • Agreed, mechanically it doesn't buy much, it's more for production. The 68 pin socket is on its own and many other designs are single sockets as well.
    • Nap, it's just half the time stuffing the board using paired sockets and pairs sit more flatly/steadily than singletons with the wider baseline for the wave soldering process.
    • I've stumbled across a IIsi that just needed re-capped, and it works great now (even with the 1GB drive I popped in)   It had an FPU card, and a "Farallon PhoneNET" Ethernet card, I found the link for the driver on Farallon's archived site, but cannot seem to locate the driver anywhere.   I know it's not going to be terribly useful online, but being able to use FTP to transfer files instead of fussing with adding disk images to the SD card on the FloppyEMU would be preferred at times.
      Does anyone know where I may be able to obtain said driver?   https://web.archive.org/web/20010210055015/http://www.farallon.com/support/software/download/pncddriverd.html   PhoneNET_Card_Drvr_4.1.sea.hqx is the file i'm looking for, and cannot seem to find anywhere.
