  1. I'm sure it's possible. People have managed to cram two floppy drives and a hard drive into those cases (with a custom mounting bracket, of coarse). It all depends on the size of the hard drive and if your SE/30 can handle the extra power load.
  2. I completely agree. My first compact mac was originally my parent's first machine, a Mac SE. My second was a Plus I picked up at the local Goodwill. My third was an SE/30, frankensteined together with parts from eBay and craigslist. Part of collecting and preserving these machines is to also preserve their story (I know it sounds cheesy, but it's true). Many sellers on ebay don't say much about their products.
  3. Huh, how many boxes would that shipment take? Personally, I think one auction with everything ruins the fun of hunting down the desired machine...
  4. My old Mac SE, which I just finished de-yellowing, has a sticker stain. The sticker itself was from an aftermarket computer upgrades store, and the majority of it was transparent. But the text and everything opaque on it has literally been imprinted onto the surface of the case. I initially though the stain was a result of the unsheltered plastic being exposed to UV and yellowing. But it's still there after the de-yellowing and I don't know what to do next. Any ideas P.S. Oddly enough, the stain is darker than the rest of the plastic, not lighter.
  5. Huh, I should try that. I just assumed it was something I had done wrong when upgrading to VGA. On another note, does anybody know of a mod that can create a new motherboard cover for a mystic CC? I think cutting up the cover for the LC575 to fit the CC would yield good results. Has anyone tried this?
  6. Is it mine? I wish it were I don't know why the seller never upgraded the resolution. He may have wanted to keep it stock, or never wanted to risk a soldering mishap. I do own a CC, but it's currently in shambles; everything it displays lacks the color red...
  7. I hope this gets a good home: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250480615872&_trkparms=tab%3DWatching#ht_506wt_1101 Most notably, it has the elusive Daystar PPC card for the LC 575. Pop one of those babies in a Mystic Color Classic and you get both 33mhz 040 and 66mhz 601 PPC. I believe that's as fast as you can get without hacking or slashing the innards of a Color Classic.
  8. Yes, swapping out one of the floppy drives is really simple. Every Mac SE has an internal SCSI port on the motherboard for an internal HD, you just need a mounting bracket (heck, you could even make one yourself) and a ribbon cable. I suggest testing both of the floppy drives before you make the switch; I've seen a few SEs that only have one good drive. For the Classic II motherboard, you could make a neat frisbee or coaster out of it
  9. neato I like how this ad displayed some of the prices of other products as well. But $70 dollars (canadian that is) for a pack of 10 floppies??? That around $50 here in the US, and when inflation is calculated as well...
  10. I can't believe somebody actually bought it... Now that would be something interesting to receive in the mail
  11. Ah, but nutty people in large numbers can do great things
  12. I believe my SE/30 has a socketed CPU similar to the one in the posting. I know the processor is gold capped and such. I might take a look to verify.
  13. Ehh... That's a tough one. A few weeks ago I saw a sealed Mac SE (opened the box, but did not rip shrinkwrap from computer) on ebay that had been sitting in some guy's closet all these years. The case was virtually flawless and it still had the yellow disk guard in the drive. In that case, I would have opened it. IMO, an unopened 128k mouse is harder to find than an unopened SE. So I would keep it sealed if I bought it.
  14. I can wash it more thoroughly and see what happens. I will eventually need to replace the caps on it to fix this problem. Is there anything I should be aware of before I attempt to recap it?
  15. Well, after inspecting the analog board and re-soldering some of the components, the video still does not appear. I decided to purchase an inexpensive board on ebay as a replacement but I still want to find a solution for the broken one. Has anyone experienced this issue before?
