  1. I'm going to be charitable and chalk it up to the lacking social skills of many computer nerds, but disparaging someone's work they posted to share with the community out of some ideological complaint you appear to have is in decidedly poor taste. *returns to his long sleep*
  2. Be careful with the plastic in general, heh. As for other stuff, RAM has to be installed in pairs, that model has a Peltier cooler on the CPU, and IIRC there are G3 upgrades for it.
  3. MacRumors Link Not a 68k Mac, but a close enough cousin.
  4. Javascript wasn't even finalized until the tail end of 1995. 68k owners weren't exactly tearing up the internet when it started to really take off in the late 90s anyway.
  5. So do modern PCs, you can still set auto reboot.
  6. Eh, that depends greatly on the TV, the player, and the LaserDisc. A TV with a good comb filter, a good player, and later quality releases (the DTS LaserDiscs in particular) look great.
  7. That doesn't appear to have anything to do with the MLA.
  8. They're not bad, they just take patience. If you have ice cube trays or an egg carton you can use them to hold the screws. Marking where they went isn't a bad idea either. iBooks are way worse.
  9. It'll actually handle up to 16GB of RAM, but the chipset is picky - at least one of the pair has to be DDR3-1066, and it has to be installed in Slot 0. The older white MacBooks were similarly picky with their DDR2 speeds.
  10. I'm guessing it's got the usual cracks on the top lid near the hinges? They're nice machines - I ran one as my daily for several months, and it's still around as my media management Mac.
  11. That's not an iPhone 4, that's a 4S.
  12. Firefox has been doing this for months. It’s a good move on their part; there’s no reason to leave things vulnerable for a fraction of a percent of users.
  13. Did you try cleaning the power button gasket? They get finicky.
  14. Purple usually is a Tadiran. They still make the same batteries today so it may not have been original.
  15. Because Samsung, Micron, etc don't want to add production capacity, and unless you're Apple or Samsung, you're not getting your full order filled.
  16. Paste should be fine, honestly. It's possible the pad was just old and smelly.
  17. I ran option 2 on both a first model 12" PowerBook G4 and a late model iBook G4 without issue, highly recommended.
  18. The green is just a thermal pad. They're used in place of paste for some applications.
  19. The odds of being able to do it without fracturing the outer shell are slim, if I'm honest. You could try squirting some Goo Gone on the 'top' of it and letting it soak, then try to slide something thin inside to start breaking off the sticky gunk.
  20. There have been plenty of instances where he's wrecked boards. Plus, do you really want to deal with someone who sells a machine like this? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Apple-Macintosh-IIsi-/182727721026?hash=item2a8b6bc042:g:6O4AAOSwohdZnBko
  21. Well, it's not Uniserver, so that's a point in their favor already. Their feedback is fine, the negatives look like just idiot buyers that didn't understand the seller's terms.
  22. I don't think running Leopard on iMac G3's is a good idea. Nor is it even officially possible.
  23. That's not what that bar on EveryMac is for...it's for model numbers, like MD101LL/A.
  24. They should be anodized. Apple wouldn't have used paint after the TiBook.
