  1. The startup "Bong" is burnt into ROM and cannot be found in ResEdit.
  2. Still...be prepared for pressure. And plenty of it. I helped a friend service a G5 LCS a couple of months ago. I was standing (and looking) in the wrong place at the wrong time...and I'm fairly sure most of the coolant ended up in my eye. I was fine...but it gave both of us one hell of a fright.
  3. Yep, just use an Apple serial cable to connect the two machines, enable AppleTalk on both, and on the 1400, use the AppleTalk Control panel to make sure the Printer-Modem port is selected. Note that the Plus will need to be running System 7 in order to share files. On older versions it can access files shared by the 1400, but System 7 (or a third party file sharing solution) is required to share files from the Plus.
  4. The Techstep that was on eBay recently only went for about 20 euros more than my max bid. Another "one that got away" damnit. Oh well, I'll get my "Holy Grail" one day. Maybe I'll make it a new year's resolution.
  5. Ahh, yes - didn't see that. Just noticed that, I just saw the big round things on the back of the LCD, which I assumed were the 3400/G3's "subwoofers".
  6. Looking at the speakers mounted behind the display, I'm guessing that that one would be a Hooper (3400) or Kanga G3 prototype.
  7. If WLM is to be believed, it'll work on any 2003/2004 G5. Also, moving to the correct forum.
  8. I remember hearing rumours about this back in the day, very cool to now know that they did build such a beast.
  9. If you have a flat PRAM battery, or no PRAM battery and you're running 7.6, the double-boot is normal - the first boot puts the Mac into 32 bit mode (required for 7.6 or later), and reboots it.
  10. Naturally, you want the G3...which leaves us with 2 slots left to play with. If it were my machine I'd probably stick in a better graphics card, as well as a Sonnet Tempo SATA. (neat card, even though it says G3 only, it will apparently work on older Power Macs, and since it emulates a SCSI card its bootable and doesn't need drivers )
  11. Its an...AlBook G4? That is truly something.
  12. Very, very cool...I had no idea these existed!
  13. It'd be interesting to know how much they cost. I'm guessing probably more than a CF -> IDE adaptor and a good CF card.
  14. I have an Apple Australia catalog from around late 1993 that has the Classic II, Colour Classic, LCII and LCIII. That said, I seem to recall that the LCII may have even been available to schools up until sometime in 1994, hence all the manual inject LCIIs that ended up in schools.

    Outbound 125!

    Wow, Don Crabb's personal machine. I have a copy of his Guide to System 7.5, quite a good read. RIP
  16. Trivia: The OPTi FineLink 82C861 chipset was used for the onboard USB on tray load iMacs, as well as a few other early USB Macs, from memory. But yeah - NJRoadfan's right - any OHCI compliant USB card should work. Just stay away from VIA based cards. (found that out the hard way)
  17. I've got a fleet of AppleDesign Keyboards. It should be known that there are two different flavours: - The older type, which I believe is from around 1994 - 1996ish. This one actually has quite a nice feel to it and doesn't have a recessed part of the caps lock key. All but one of mine are these, and I like them. - The newer type, which I believe is from around 1997 - 1998ish. This one has a recessed part of the caps lock key next to the 'a' key, and feels a lot cheaper than the older type. I have one of these and aren't the biggest fan of it. That said...there's much, much worse keyb

    Outbound 125!

    Very nice For the record, I've always thought its funny that Outbound's logo has a kangaroo, yet they were a US based company, and the machines were never sold in Australia. At least I've never heard of anyone in Australia having one, anyway, nor have I ever seen one in person.
  19. While like you, I doubt its a prototype (especially since it has FCC approval), its certainly a neat piece of history - I've never heard of there being post-prototype-but-pre-production Macs before. I actually went to an Apple roadshow in 1999, only a small one, that was done by a local AASP, they had the slot load iMac and the G4 there, but they were just ordinary production model systems taken out of the showroom. I take it there's nothing inside that identifies it as a prototype?
  20. It started out in life as a bog stock 800k SE, which it remained until I got my hands on it. (at which point the logic board was dead and rusted out, as was the chassis and floppy drive) So I got to work on it...new rust free SE/30 chassis, recapped SE/30 logic board, a full 128MB of RAM, NOS SuperDrive SCSI2SD with a 4GB microSD card, its a beast. All it needs now is a IIfx/IIsi ROM SIMM and an ethernet card As for the name - I always thought it was hilarious that the SE/30 could have ended up being called that, had Apple stuck to their naming convention
  21. Yep - I bought mine for that price + shipping, fully assembled. Updated the firmware and configured it on my PC, went down to Coles and grabbed a cheapie microSD card, slapped it in, installed it in the Mac SEx (my souped up SE/30 upgraded SE), formatted it, works perfectly, no complaints here
  22. Maybe ask in the Trading Post? Virtual is commercial software, which we don't distribute copies of here.
  23. Really just the SE/30. While the IIsi is closely related to the SE/30, given that its already 32 bit clean, there's really no advantage to be had by using a IIfx SIMM rather than a IIsi SIMM. Maybe the IIcx?
  24. Very nice, I remember seeing these in MacAddict back in the day. (and remember the typo they made with the price - $25.99 vs $2599) Wanted one ever since!
