  1. Does one of them have the TX-RX pins crossed over and one not? That would account for the original working to the mbp with a terminal program but not to a printer...
  2. 'Wherefore' means 'why', not 'where'. In the famous scene in R&J, Juliet is noting with despair that if Romeo had any other name, none of the disaster would be happening, hence 'wherefore art thou Romeo' (as opposed to someone else who wouldn't matter)
  3. No, quite. Thanks for corroboration.
  4. Oh, I forgot that people who have been around in a group for a long time can't possibly be rude or misbehave. How remiss of me for insufficiently respecting my elders.
  5. I'm not convinced that enquiring forcefully about someone's employment or hiring on the Internet is either polite or good behaviour. This post comes across as aggressive, and if I were on the receiving end of it, it would make me extremely disinclined to give you any information at all.
  6. What version of the firmware do you have? I can check what I have when I get home, but I have no idea how to extract it from the device...
  7. Citric acid ought to do it. Distilled vinegar is also a good option. Either way, you need to make sure to rinse and dry it properly, though...
  8. I don't know anything about the 6100, I'm afraid, I just know what that chip is in earlier Macs. @bibilit might be able to help.
  9. Please post links in the trading post here! There are at least a couple of things I would be interesting in going for...
  10. Hmmm, shows as "unavailable" here, too.
  11. These aren't particularly hard to find, in my experience and might be a sensible option: certainly the ones I have here aren't too picky. This would probably be what I'd try first. You may find it cheaper to find an old 10BaseT hub, which will probably behave better with your card. At least here, I can get those for nearly no money at all.
  12. That was really interesting, thankyou for posting that. It's cleared up a few things I found confusing.
  13. I'm pretty sure the r-pi basically relies on this behaviour... This is a good point IMO. Personally, I'd probably leave both on, but allow for powering through the USB jack. But this is a very uninformed opinion so feel free to disregard it
