  1. No, I don't have it anymore. I sold off the majority of my collection quite some time ago.
  2. Fun! Years ago I had a maxed out IIci 601/66, 128MB RAM, RasterOPS 24bit video card(with video capture), PAS 16 sound card, and Ethernet (sometimes I pulled the sound card for the FWB SCSI card and external RAID).
  3. OOOOOOoooooohhhhh I tried to get my hands on that in college for $0, to do basically that. Had a friend that worked in one of the computer labs, we were going to try to bridge the administrative Appletalk network to the dorm Appletalk network. Just so we could monkey around on the network and see what kind of mischief we could get up to. Closest I came was when one of the lab printers suddenly popped up on the dorm network... I printed lots of many things to it.
  4. sounds like the typical bad solder joints on the analog board, super easy fix.

    iMac G5

    it's open. have not taken the logic board out... but it boots to a the apple logo, so it is mostly working.

    iMac G5

    G5 iMac has been rescued from being recycled. turns on, gives me the gray apple screen but just a constant spinning gear. sounds like corrupt data/failing drive? pulled the drive out and realized I don't have an SATA to USB adaptor any more (well just have one for 2.5" drives). next trick, need to find OS 10.5 :P
  7. yeah that's a bit. pulling about 200w on my '13 trashcan, most of that is the monitor, 78w with the display off. still not media server friendly like a mini. the '09 I'm using as a server in the basement is drawing 30w and that includes the smart network switch and external HDDs. But the mini and network run 24/7 the macpro I put to sleep when I'm not using it...
  8. Managed to snag a genuine HP 09A for my 8000DN HP has discontinued those as well... but with the volume I print, should last just about forever.
  9. from what I remember(been a while) with the rasterops video card in my IIci, it could play live video on the screen smooth, but recording was highly dependent on the speed of my drives/SCSI bus, not the processor speed.
  10. but not all cities. I live in the biggest city in the state of Maine, and I only have two bars at my house and my new workplace... have to use wi-fi calling at home, cell calls drop with regularity.
  11. I always liked WriteNow! Mainly because it would let me write silently with the HDD on my PB165/PB180 spun down. It would only spin up when I saved the file.
  12. Have not found anyone to buy the old HP at work(last day at my current job today) so its going to come home with me, kids print enough stuff to be worthwhile if just for the extra toner cartridge, one cartridge will last me years. The score is an HP Laserjet 8000DN B&W tabloid laser printer. Only clocked 147k prints since 1999 (service interval is 350k) includes a duplexer, 16MB DIMM, and jet direct 600N network card. it does not bonjour, have to manually enter the IP. Oh and it sits on a nifty old typewriter cart.
  13. goodwill here sells computers and peripherals, one store has most of it, no HDDs generally crappy worthless stuff. That store and others also have small displays with tested/shrink wrapped stuff that's sold at retail prices. anything rare, vintage, of any value goes straight to eBay.
  14. Had a few of those marathon sliding rack mounts for G3/G4 macs. Gave them away some time back. still have the Anthro cart rolling rack that they were in.
  15. and it appears the web page was made on the classic II cool.
  16. car ECUs are a PITA. fixed a friend's Audi S6 ECU years ago, sunroof drain clogged and soaked the hell out of the ECU. enough that the harness corroded and pins started to come out of it. nightmare. but replacement was $1200 so it was worth a shot. I got it to work again, so he was happy.
  17. worth it and then some for the screen alone if there is no tunneling. Think one stuck pixel is fine, even new those might have had one or two.
  18. Not sure about the stacked memory... but there was a Macintosh XL that was a modified Lisa...
  19. That's not Blue, it's gold! wait, that's not a picture of a dress...
  20. Have not had time to tinker still. but I was upstairs putting the humidifiers away so I thought I'd plug it in and see what it does. Powered up immediately.
  21. I got my 24x36" sets directly from Apple. Never hung them, I have em stored away. market for them doesn't seem great right now so I'm waiting until the value goes back up before I try selling them again.
  22. Yeah I'm suspecting caps now too, time needed to wait for start up is increasing. I'm doubting its cord contacts, first thing I tried was wiggling the cord while trying to start up. Maybe I'll have time some night to open it up more and get a closer look, see if I spy some bulging caps... when I did the battery I only opened it far enough to get to the battery. Edit: just to add. So, I fix it, then what do I do with it This was a surplus from my mother's work that I was selling on their behalf, probably have more into it then its worth so it'll be mine... Really h
  23. I know the G5 iMacs are very well known for PS issues. never heard any with the G4 my self. It turned on when I went back to it later. and turned on after an hour unplugged. left it unplugged and will try again tonight.
  24. I was thinking that. Buyer never showed up, so I bought a new battery this morning. no go, Left it unplugged for 24hrs, put in the new battery and it didn't turn on. I have it plugged in and will see if it decides to turn on again.
