  1. While I can’t guarantee it, I think it’s extremely unlikely that you’d damage the G3. I was thinking about the fact that I’d never tried a G4 in a Beige G3. The beige G3 is handy, the Yikes G4 is handy, lets give it a try. Did it and the Beige “G4” booted up. System profiler recognizes that there’s now a G4 processor in it. Unfortunately the G4 ZIF has to go back to the Yikes.
  2. The one use of an Apple card I've been considering if I can ever find the time is this one https://www.apple2pl.us/ Looks like an interesting project
  3. I haven't tried a G4 ZIF in a Beige G3 but I am using a 350mhz one from a B&W, slightly overclocked to 366mhz. I've read lots of postings from people using a G4 from a Yikes in their beige G3 but I haven't had a spare CPU and I haven't wanted to bother pulling one out of a Yikes just to try it out. I'd probably test the ZIFs in the Beige G3 as it'd be a little faster than with the carrier. I wouldn't bother changing the jumpers for the test as I'd be looking to see if they work and underclocking isn't harmfull.
  4. One other possible factor is that the worst memory card for the IIgs is the Apple one. They're readily available and probably cost more to fix than replacing. A dying IIgs memory card is often viewed as a good opportunity to upgrade.
  5. I think that’s a misprint. The link at the bottom of the Gazelle section takes you to another part of their site where they say 128mb. The only way I know to get more than 128mb on a 5500 is to fill in the empty RAM area on the bottom of the motherboard. That’ll take you to 136mb total.
  6. I’ll agree with the incompatibility idea. About 3 years ago I tried an Intel ssd with a PPC Mac. The install went fine but after a couple of boots it seemed to lose it’s formatting. Reformatted and did another install and on the second boot, the same thing happened. I installed it in an Intel Mac and it’s still working fine today. I tried a Samsung in the PPC Mac and it worked and kept working. I wouldn’t take that as an endorsement of current Samsung drives for this use as the model numbers have changed since.
  7. There's not much in one. 2 switches, a fan, 2 sets of outlets and some wires connecting those
  8. For DOS, Pascal & CP/M. I believe it preceded ProDOS.
  9. The Saturn and clones will work the same but other manufacturers may be a little different
  10. Most likely it's a Saturn 128k card. You can check online to see if pictures of it match your card. The manual and software for the Saturn cards are available online
  11. If you're running system 7 or 7.1, I think Apple File Exchange was an optional install
  12. I got a little curious and got out my watt meter. With a 2009 Mac Mini and a 110 watt power supply I watched while the Mini booted. It was mostly a lot lower but there were some peaks at 40 watts. While running it varied from 14 to 30 watts depending on what I was doing. I thought that maybe playing a DVD would pull more but that was only 22 watts.
  13. I have an intel and a G4 Mac Mini that I only pull out occasionally but for the last few years I've only used a 110w power supply with both.
  14. Another option is an ide to CF adapter. I've been running a G4 MDD off one for a few years.
  15. I see the connector pinout everywhere but can't seem to find an ADB mouse wiring diagram. For any ADB mouse
