  1. So...the problem is that floppy's obviously don't hold much. Forget that, even...on El Capitan for some reason putting in a floppy formatted on my ci results in read only status. Not sure what's up with that. So, what would you all figure the best way to get files onto the machine is?

    IIci - best way for file transfers

    I have enough floppy's for that. No, it's hooked up to the ethernet port on an airport base station.

    7.5.5 with MacTCP as well. I do have 7.1.1 installed as well. Part of the problem is that I can't really get software larger than a floppy on the machine without networking up and running .

    Hey thanks buddy! I was about to post saying that the card works great, but I cannot seem to get a connection via FTP for some reason. I believe the problem is I don't have the right version of OT. @Macdrone: you rock. Seriously. Thank you so much. I'll be out to visit again soon.

    IIci - best way for file transfers

    I set up my G5 right next to the ci for floppy disk access. It's running 10.5 and seems to work well for that. Plus I have some older OSX games from 2001-2004 I like to play. Anyway, I have wired network access via an airport that's set up to extend my current wifi network. Works awesome. So is rather stick an Ethernet card in the ci at this point versus work with external media.

    I don't have any classic system installers unfortunately. This machine came with 7.1 and 7.5.5 pre-installed. I have a look at the system folder tonight. Regarding floppy emu, yeah I'd love to get one. They seem fantastic.

    Just so I know, olePigeon, what's involved with getting the ethernet card going? What software would I need?

    Yeah I know. I'll see what I have going on this weekend if you're around. CC_333: thanks for that. I have an iBook G3 with 9.2.2 and 10.3 installed. I'll fire that up for floppy transfers. olePigeon: Let me see if Macdrone has one sitting around and then I'll hit you up for assistance

    I'd probably prefer ethernet, but haven't had much luck finding a card much less getting them to work on the network properly.

    Keyboard and Mouse (in a box)

    Yeah, these were cheap as well. The keyboard was $12, mouse was $5.

    Keyboard and Mouse (in a box)

    My NOS keyboard and mouse in a box from Kensington showed up today. My Apple ADB keyboard / mouse are in kinda rough shape, so it'll be nice to have brand spankin' new peripherals for the ci

    I bought a pallet of macs

    Yeah, I can definitely agree with that. It's unfortunate. Folks just want to help, but it's tricky as you said.

    CL3 PC133 in Clamshell iBook SE 466 ?

    I tend to trust what OWC has to say in their compatibility charts, they've never steered me wrong on anything memory related.

    I highly doubt this guy is going to find this particular forum and initiate litigation, lol...but hey whatever you guys want to do. I'll speak no more about it, it's beyond silly at this point and turning into a p'ing-contest real quick. Sorry I didn't have a chance to consult our legal council on this one , I only speak from an infosec perspective.

    My IIci

    Hi there. New here, awesome folks you have. Anyway, I wanted to share my Iici. I grew up with this machine, and was absolutely thrilled to find one in great condition on eBay. I've been looking for years. https://www.tauceti.org/wiki/pages/N658B99/Mac_IIci.html So the question is....ethernet. What options are there for the Iici?

    My IIci

    I know nothing about electronics repair, unfortunately. My father did it for years, too. Shame.

    My IIci

    Hm. Maybe I'll just remove the card for now. I'd rather not take a chance. Uniserver said he'd recap it. I'll PM him and talk $

    Depends on how you were going to remove the data. Reformat won't really get rid of it unless you do a multi-pass with zeroing it over. All that info that was posted by the OP was public. You cannot use any of that, even combined, to steal someone's identity.

    I was talking about the guys homepage that is archived. He put all that out there. No need to redact that. His address is/was most likely in a phone book. That's public info as well. You aren't going to steal someones identity with their phone number and home address. I agree folks throw out some crazy info though. We deal with identity theft daily at the bank... People posts their resumes publicly all the darn time. It's seriously not a big deal. You aren't putting your SSN on a resume.

    Why was a public link redacted? If he put it out there publicly (which he did) it's public information.

    I bought a pallet of macs

    I have always tried to get computers / data back to folks, but they've never responded. I bought a IIGS years ago and there was some PowerBook in the box too that the guy didn't tell me about, or didn't know about. It ended up being his future wife's laptop (it was from when she was in med school). Anyway, there was SO much hilarious content on that thing. Talking about her then boyfriend, lots of recipes etc. I figured it was pretty personal stuff so I found her on Facebook when I was still on that creeptastic site but she never got in touch to get the laptop back. Oh well. Good for you for trying anyway. Keep us posted.

    Takimoto's finding

    I didn't realize SE/30's were a hot item. I have one that, last I knew, still works. I left it with my parents across the country. I'll have to get it recapped.

    Ohh yes. Man, I can't tell you how bad I wanted a set of these back in the day. Here's a short write up on my blog: https://www.tauceti.org/wiki/pages/J4W0U9V6/CH_Pedals.html
