  1. Here's a test result using 4 different CPU combinations (G3 and 604e, including a dual 604e) showing that the G3 is faster on these specific photoshop actions as well as a Macbench test http://www.barefeats.com/Photo.html
  2. I did the Cmd-Opt-P-R reset. I kept hold holding down the 4 keys until it cycled through 3 times. I wonder if you should pull the battery off the logic board overnight and then put it back in. Pull the power as well.
  3. OK, I pulled out the 9600 after a year of it sitting under a desk. I'd forgotten how big and how heavy the beast was. My 9600 has the original video card and Mac Radeon 7000 with DVI/VGA/S-Video. Plugged in USB mouse and attached it to Samsung LCD via VGA.It powered up fine, chimed, and SCSI drives spun up correctly. Screen flickered. But... no video. I kid you not. Now I'm pissed off. Since I couldn't remember which video card was for the start up monitor I tried all combinations of adapters (Mac DB-15 -> VGA, DVI->VGA). The it dawned on me. The Samsung is a widescreen display.
  4. I am going to pull out my 9600 tomorrow and try a few things to see if I can help out a bit further with this problem
  5. Its not clear to me if you've installed the - original CPU - original hard drive or small capacity SCSI on the SCSI-1 chain in the bare system. I'm also not clear if you've actually tried to boot from the internal CD-ROM drive using an OS 9 CD-ROM I'm also trying to remember if your Mac Radeon card required any extensions to be installed Have you tried SCSI disk mode from your 3400 to the 9600? This is making me want to pull out my 9600
  6. Edit: Here's the info from Wacom. "A. The Wacom Serial tablets can be used with a Serial to USB adapter in operating systems up to 9.2.2. Wacom has tested the Keyspan (www.keyspan.com) Serial to USB adapter. If you have a Macintosh tablet with an ADB (Apple Desktop Bus) interface (the tablet model number will end in "A"), the iMate USB to ADB adapter from Griffin Techonlogy (www.griffintechnology.com) will work to adapt the tablet to USB. . NOTE: OSX requires a USB tablet. ADB and serial models will not work in OSX.
  7. Also, if you are using AAs in the battery tray, make sure to give it some time. You may need to slide the on/off switch a few times before it kicks in. Use new batteries, too.
  8. You asked what a 512k/800 was... its really a 512ke. I gave the background on the computer specifically the 800K drive (hence the /800 in the title). Since the ke came out after the Plus, it must have also come with the Plus style keyboard
  9. If you look at photo DSC_0029 you can see the serial number and the model number M0001D (which is the EDU 512ke). The 512ke was introduced in April 1986 and came with a 800K floppy drive standard (according to Mactracker) and was discontinued in Sept. 1987. The Plus was introduced in Jan. 1986 so there was an almost a 1.5 year overlap hence the 800K drives in the 512ke
  10. Do you have the drives set up as Master (primary) and Slave? Or Cable Select on both drives?Do you have any other devices (e.g.CD-ROM) on the ATA 66 and ATA 100 buses?
  11. Yes, there are 2 different cartridges. One style cartridge holds the larger capacity black ink tank. A different cartridge holds a small capacity black ink tank and a small capacity colour ink tank. You can still pick up both cartridges as these are the same tanks as those used in the Canon BJC-70, BJC-80, and BJC-85
  12. Skip the Duos. The keyboards are horrible and you will go insane tracking down all of the different docks that you will want to use:) Trust me on this. The Duos do have a bit of an advantage when you want to add ethernet as there are micro-docks that will let you do this My vote is for the 170. Great screen (active matrix) and keyboard
  13. I've never experienced this problem. Have you tried using one of the OS X native apps to do your synching with?
  14. Big, heavy, loud, and very fast. Mine has the localtalk and sheet feed option as well. I haven't used it in a while but I do remember preferring the print quality from the LQ versus the IW II. I do have extra ribbons sealed in their original plastic wrap
  15. Congrats on getting a 2100. You're really going to enjoy using one. I think that the only thing that you are missing is a keyboard.
  16. Do you mean that you already have an external 5.25 inch drive case and you want to know how to properly install it?
  17. You need to get a 16 bit card like a Farallon or a 3Com 3C589 (ver.C).
  18. Its been a while since I had a 610 so someone may need to chime in on this one... If the PRAM battery doesn't provide enough power it may cause a problem with the display. Similar to the LC 475 if you power on, power off, power on then you get a video display. Replace the current battery with a new(er) one and see if this helps

    Palm keyboard hack

    Even with practice, handwriting or printing on the 2100 is still slower than a keyboard (Palm or Newton models) for me when I'm working on a longer document or sitting down. Now, if we switch to standing up or in a place without a flat surface then handwriting wins

    Palm keyboard hack

    This is from the same site that Quadraman posted in this thread http://68kmla.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=922 This guy has created an adapter so that you can attach a Palm Stowaway keyboard. Way cheaper than the adapter that I bought a few years ago... and works just as well http://homepage.mac.com/pillowcase1/PhotoAlbumold21.html
  21. This is an interesting question. You should throw this up on the NewtonTalk list. Somebody there will be able to give you a definitive answer one way or the other
  22. The Macs didn't use the 13W3 connector. The 13w3 connector was on the portrait and 2 page displays.
  23. Unfortunately, the 5xx series Powerbooks have so-called "intelligent" batteries that can appear to be bad even though they can physically hold a charge. If you google powerbook 540 batteries you'll find a number of different methods for resurrecting these batteries. None are guaranteed to work Some samples http://www.wwc.edu/frohro/520_Fixes/520_&_540.htm http://seth.mattinen.org/notes.php?id=1 http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/tenchi/500.html#Trouble-Shooters BTW, you have a pretty nice PB540 - PPC upgrade and a boatload of RAM. Do you have the rev C cage as well?
  24. With a 9500/8500 you run a pretty good chance of screwing something up if you don't at least put the board back in place. Better safe than sorry esp. if it takes less than 5 minutes to take it apart
  25. I can strip an 8xx/8xxx/9xxx computer down to nothingness in less than 5 minutes, too. But I still hate the case design The biggest issue in my mind is installing RAM. Lets just say as an example, you add RAM, reassemble and reboot and you get nothing. You have a bad stick of RAM... Now what do you do? Strip it down again. Fun I still vote for the 8600/9600 cases as being better than the G3/G4 cases based on the availability of extra external 5.25 drive bays and the massive number of internal bays
