  1. this is super exciting, I would love to get OS 9 running natively on my G4 mini. It mostly sits unused since Classic mode isn't really that functional for older music software.
  2. Thanks, that's what I figured. I might as well replace the whole switch at that point since I'll have a new one anyway...
  3. Hey all, I got a 512k recently, and the keyboard has a broken stem on the backspace key. I have ordered a new switch and replacement keycap, but since the original switch still works (only the stem is snapped), I was wondering if there was a way for me to simply swap the stems out, rather than de-soldering the old switch and re-soldering a new switch. It looks like there are tabs on the switch, but I didn't want to mess anything up prior to receiving my replacement parts and asking on the board. thanks!
  4. That's what I was thinking, I'll look into JB Weld. No harm either way because I'll just end up replacing the switch and cap in the 'worst case' scenario.
  5. I was very pleasantly surprised with the condition, and thanks!
  6. Picked this up near Boston for $50 thanks to a great tip here at the MLA! It's a standard 512k with a 10MB Hyperdrive installed. It's in really good shape, and boots up to System 5 currently, but I think it's probably on its last legs before a cap failure gets the best of it. I'm just excited to have a real 512k in my possession. Anyone have any idea if the backspace key could be fixed without replacing the switch? The switch itself functions, but the stem is busted off the top and I'm always wary of soldering...
  7. I somehow lost the 2009 adapter in my apartment, so I have to grab my spare from work before I can test it again. I'm currently using the 85W with the G4 as intended, and everything seems to be working great. I think the Intel mini is fine too (fingers crossed), I was just worried because I ran it on the 85W adapter for a little over an hour while I was installing 10.9 and setting up user accounts.
  8. That's what I figured, I noticed SMCFanControl was acting a little weird... thanks so much!
  9. Hey all, I'm setting up a 2009 Mac mini to give my parents as an xmas gift. I plugged it in, installed 10.9, set up their user accounts and then went to hook up my G4 mini in the spot that the '09 was sitting. I realized that I had been using the G4 mini's 85W power supply when setting up the 2009 mini instead of its actual 100W supply. Everything seemed fine, and this may be a silly question, but did I do any damage to the '09 mini by running it on the weaker PSU? Thanks!
