  1. I dont run a pram battery in my 475, I just use the double flip of the power switch method which bypasses that issue.
  2. Is that CPU socketed ? If it is I wonder if the CPU can be upgraded.
  3. I have my Performa 475 hooked up to the vga port on my HDTV (using a vga adapter and a vga cable), the HDTV complains a little (complaining about resolution mismatch) when it first detects a video signal but displays fine.
  4. Is there any kind of button switches on the inside to tell if a caddy is loaded or not ?
  5. I want to be able to use my performa 475, and maybe even my llgs.
  6. It displays with a few issues, but is useable. Just not ideal. Haven't found a telnet client on this phone that works correctly yet. Its hard to type cause when you type it lags before it responds (have to wait 1-10 seconds between key presses). But all of these issues are with the client itself.
  7. Had to give your BBS a go, used a telnet app on my windows phone to try. Quite interesting. Been on a BBS a few times a while ago (first time with a smartphone though).
  8. A 840av has always been something I wanted to get.
  9. Just sometimes good things come to those that wait.
  10. Blame the auto correct on my phone for saying Mac's instead of Macs in my post.
  11. After you do clean everything off with soap and water, you can buy a can of compressed air to spray around any chips that might hold water under them. It makes the drying process a lot better. It still needs to sit a few days to make sure it's dry, chips that can trap water under them can be a pain because even after a few days if there is water trapped under any chips can still contain moisture.
  12. To me it doesn't matter what brand of pram battery is used, i either remove the battery and never replace it, or buy a new battery. You run the risk of a leaking or exploding battery with every replacement. My first 475 met its fate by a exploding pram battery which was maxell brand, now my current 475 has no pram battery in it, but i do have to double flick the power switch to turn it on or it wont boot, its a trade off between having memory loss or the chance if a pram battery leak or explosion. I also removed the battery from my IIgs to keep it from seeing the same fate. The only
  13. There are a few pictures taken using it on Google, you would assume correctly about poor quality. It will probably never be used being that my phone takes better pictures. Its just a interesting part for a collection if you will.
  14. Speaking about palm III, i picked up a palm III with dock and a palmpix camera attachment at goodwill for $2.99 USD. The palm works, i just need to get a USB to serial adapter to load up software to use the camera, but i expect it also works as well.
  15. http://www.howtodothings.com/electronics/how-to-discharge-a-capacitor that should give you a heads up on what to do. but from what i have seen a blown cap is normally discharged already. the high-voltage capacitors that are not blown are the ones you got to watch out for.
  16. I just use plastic epoxy that you can also pick up at a auto store. the stuff is a heck of allot stronger then any superglue that i have found, heck you can even use it to fabricate parts (like you can do with bondo on a car). its great stuff to use. there is also different mixes for glass, wood, and metal, and PVC and so on. if you ask me this is the JB weld for plastic (you also don't have to worry about it drying dark either).
  17. Wow, now that's what i call a score. And with all of those add on cards (the SCSI cards, ZipGSX, and so on) i bet that was a mint. A score like that is something i have always dreamed of (when it comes to the IIgs). There is only one more thing (from the Mac side) that i want, Which is a TAM.
  18. A few treatments of retrobright and they could look close to normal color.
  19. wow, nice score Dana. I have been looking out for a Amiga as well, but haven't turned up with much at all (either a Amiga 500/600 or a 1200). Either they sell for a premium or for cheap because its broken.
  20. Humm interesting, i wonder if it was a option to buy with it or something.
  21. Now that is what i call forced air cooling lol That is one hell of a nice score.
  22. Very nice, I have always liked the portable Mac. I do not know how hard it will be to find a good battery for it though (never needed to look for one). i do hope you enjoy it ( i know i would).
