  1. Greetings all, Very kindly a friend of mine has dug a working Newton out of his attic and is going to hand it over this weekend (what an awesome dude!). In preparation of this momentous event I've been powering up my old hardware so that I can 'sync' with the Newton, and therefore install new software etc. I installed the connection kit for classic OS onto a G3 iMac I have in the workshop. I don't (yet) have a physical cable but maybe one will be included in the bag of goodies (fingers crossed) so I was pottering around and dug out a box of ran
  2. I know that the Atari Portfolio data 'cards' require a battery to continue to store data iirc it's a button cell CR2032...
  3. Love my TiBook, carried it around the world with me and it never gave up. Always ran a little hot for my taste though!
  4. Hallo ouens ek hoop almal is goed hey! I'm having some problems with recent acquisitions that I am hoping someone may be able to advise me on... I have a Classic a SE FD and an SE FD HD, all of which have some issue, here they are above out in my garage workshop where I had hoped to use one of my other systems to make some system disk or at least help with the problems: The classic II displays this on boot so I think maybe the board needs replacement capacitors? It bongs happily but the screen is messed up which is a real shame: The next one I found in an abandoned
  5. I'm very jealous of the Quadra, awesome
  6. Lekker finds there ande765a I'm jealous of your haul! Fix that silver shiny!
  7. I have a copy of D2 + D2 lord of destruction I bought myself for my TiBook when I visited NYC for my 21st birthday. It worked as a PC installer as well iirc. I still have both of the disks but I'm not so sure I kept the boxes for it all (I know, sorry.)
  8. I am very jealous of this haul of Quadra's, I really want a Quadra (even a case would do) - they're difficult to come by around here. Love all the Jurassic Park trivia in this thread, it's something that stood out to me at the time, Hotdog Zanzibar's analysis of Nedry's desk is probably the most in-depth I've ever seen - excellent work If anyone's interested you can get the program that's a unix system and you know this check out: http://fsv.sourceforge.net

    Ti Book

    Love the TiBook I bought one new back when I was at Uni and I still own it - I flew it to NYC with me once on my 21st birthday (now so long ago!). Cosmetically it's a bit rough around the edges but generally it's OK. Always seem to run hot for my liking but recently I got her up and running again as I found a copy of Myst Exile collectors edition in an old cupboard someone was clearing out. Good luck getting it running sweetly! Best looking powerbook of the series to me.
  10. I always wanted a Psion, I hear the screen ribbons can become an issue (as can hinges on some models) so I'd ensure both of those areas were as good as can be. Nice find!
  11. Good luck with this Elfen it sounds like a real challenge!
  12. I believe it's a parallel attachment... I will check this out and get back to you all on this. Where I live retro Apple equipment isn't that commonplace so if I need things like cables I usually have to end up searching the online auctions and paying through the nose.
  13. Apple FTP ok... I have no dongles to provide networking (although I do have a load of vintage PCMCIA nics for networking assuming I can find a suitably vintage driver..). I do have a Zip drive I bought many years ago that I will read up on the application of, that seems most promising to me as I am unfamiliar with Basilisk. Thanks for the pointers!
  14. Hi Guys I struggle with finding where to gain the install files from. I have many systems that I think are capable of imaging some floppies with the media files but I don't know where one would go to achieve 7.5.5 or any other version for that matter. Thanks for all the comments though, this morning I took apart the old battery pack and removed what was left of the cells. There was some sort of red crystals growing in there alongside all the copper sulphate on the outside so I scraped it all out and cleaned it down and then put the empty cell back into the Powerbook so it was aesth
