  1. Would using 1 18650 in the 1/2 AA macs be overkill? I hear more about them leaking and exploding from being overcharged rather than drained completely. I've got a box of "dead before 2010" li-ion packs made in the early 2000s, of nearly every manufacture; with no leaks to attest to their shelf stability. They're cheap, high capacity, a holder is available, or they can be bought with leads presoldered. I have a couple, made in single battery packages that came out of cheap bluetooth speakers( whose usb ports were on their way out). I've been using one to successfully jump the IIfx's PSU, but it
  2. I bought this IIfx from someone on this forum I believe many years ago, I recently dug it out of storage and decided get it doing useful stuff again. When I used to use it, some I'd power it on and smell something along the lines of slightly burnt fish, a restart would make it go away, lots of reading and experience later, it seems that may be capacitors failing in the PSU (It's using the original II's power supply). Beyond that, ive discovered the "High Resolution Display Video Card" is pretty crusty from leaking caps, to the point where one of the components seems to have burnt, can someone
  3. Have you taken a look at Basilisk ii's sheepnet driver? I was able to compile it on my raspberry pi running Raspbian Jessie and connect to a virtual appletalk file server with both my pbg3 running 10.4 and Takky running 7.5.5 and AS 3.7.4/ OT 1.3, I have netatalk running on the same pi, which the takky also connects to, doesn't seem to be able to connect from basilisk to the netatalk server hosted on the same machine though
  4. I'm no programer but, I see that winbolo has been made open source, also the documentation seems to suggest that modern networking was implemented, theres a client software and a server software. I wonder if the src can be modified to work on a 68k mac again. Or possibly a PC could serve a tracker anyways here's a link to the project's files, the main site seems to be down with Archive's snapshot being rather limited. https://code.google.com/archive/p/winbolo/
  5. Hey guys! It's been about 9 years since I last logged in, but a few months ago I found a CC with a battery damaged logicboard at the transfer station. With nothing gained and nothing lost, as well as a performa 636cd, I decided to try to make a takky and it worked! That got me googling all sorts of mac witchcraft, catching up on the hobby. I saw the page on the replica SE board thread, and it reminded me of this effort from 1986 https://www.cultofmac.com/266710/meet-unitron-mac-512-worlds-first-macintosh-clone/ Many moons ago (possibly pre-crash)I posted a thread pondering the existe
  6. The flashed FX5200 i put in mine has worked fine for everything i've thrown at it so far.
  7. I love my pismo. I have 640mb of ram, an airport card, and 10.4 everything runs fine except flash video(like youtube). i get about 8 hours of battery life just websurfing i got my replacement pismo battery from the seller "wholesalelaptopbatteries" Here's one for sale on their website The batteries are fairly freshly made too, less than a month old.
  8. Ahh... The bliss of using a Plus, just the very faint electrical buzz of the CRT.
  9. I'll have to take pictures of mine sometime.
  10. I have a boxed shrinkwrapped one, It's called the Envisio NDA030, it's a little video-out upgrade made for the powerbook 140 and 170, that plugs into the memory socket, it provides a ram upgrade for the powerbook and the video out. http://calbears.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0NEW/is_1992_Jan_22/ai_11872921
  11. cant be too hard its been in production for 6 years just make sure that the keyboard is in working condition its extremley hard to find a replacement 4 years.
  12. No not the color classics, i dont count those as compact macs.
  13. I have all the classics and 2 of the SEs, and a Plus, so I'm close.
  14. The guy that owns artmix.com has them http://artmix.com/j_home.html
  15. How many points do I get if i follow Edward Alcosser's book: How to Build a Working Digital Computer(©1968) to build the computer, and use that for July? PDF Here's a review on it on Amazon and if you want more info on the computer google "Paperclip computer"
