I had revived it, but I heard a not so nice sound and the Lisa frose. I think it is now dead.

 

( 'E's passed on! This disk is no more! He has ceased to be! 'E's expired and gone to meet 'is maker! - Monthy Python, Dead parrot sketch)

 

Have a look at this video when it just had come to live... now all nostalgia.

Well if it is... Rest In Peace Widget 1983-2017. 

 

I'm really starting to think that 2/10s sold without their hard drives (which were probably destroyed because of ahem, confidentiality...) are actually good value! There's one for sale right now for ebay, and since the Widget is missing it is slightly cheaper than its counterparts. I'm really tempted, but it's still too expensive for me. Maybe one day though!


COOL STUFF: Working original & nearly complete 1984 Macintosh w/ Picasso kit, still looking for a G440 mouse :p, NIB Newton MessagePad from 1993, iMac G3 400MHz DV Graphite

IN THE WORKS: The outstanding SE/30 (50MHz Powercache, Pivot Display Color Graphics) but also non-working 512K Hyperdrive w/ Manuals & Disks, Mac Portable M5126, SE Dual 800k, Classic II, HD40SC, Apple Djinn... I have a lot of restorations going on!

Yeah start buying those SD ones or whatever they are! They are like $400 but seem worth it.

@techknight
I also live quite close to Amsterdam airport, so plane engines are normal background sound for me! :-)
