  1. What a gorgeous setup.....reallly nice.
  2. This thread was a great read; thanks for sharing/posting! Looking forward to seeing the machine in a rackmount enclosure.
  3. @jimbojones small world; i had no idea it was from a 68kmla member either! Thank you! I'm loving it and using it daily for writing, gaming, projects, etc.
  4. AWESOME write up! Very cool to see all these excellent pics and work done.
  5. Last piece of the puzzle; the full RAM upgrade is in place! 128 MB Okay I'll quit bumping this thread...lol
  6. Loving my Dazzle 4 in 1. Reformatted the CF for Mac so use that as an extra HD/Storage and use the 2GB SD in the Dazzle for moving files over. Thanks again to the member who recommended these (might have been in my PB 1400 thread originally) they work great; plug and play!
  7. Nice haul! I like the external CD-ROM drives...they only existed for so long so cool pieces to have. An OEM Apple scanner is a pretty cool piece of hardware too; can't be too many around left working.
  8. You hit the mother-load.....very nice find all around. Enough to keep you busy for years right there. Side note---there is a multi-cart for the Vectrex, so you don't have to buy all the pricey games individually. Just ask around on Atariage.com
  9. Thanks; this would be helpful! I have a guy locally that could help me replace the caps and does excellent work.
  10. Found a 128MB RAM Module! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Apple-Powerbook-3400-128MB-RAM-memory-module/233844487896?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 Got it for less than posted but took a bath on shipping because it's in the UK. Oh well; wasn't sure how often they pop up anymore so decided to go for it. Now.......am i really stuck at 3.0 GB for this HDD?
  11. Thanks! Fully sorted as of today; and everything works great. After years of upgrades and mucking about; a fresh install really is the way to go. Much more room on the HDD now and it's running faster all around. Now the long wait for the 128MB ram upgrade begins.....luckily i have a 64MB card in there, so i'm working with 80MB total. Any tips on where to find such an upgrade, beside ebay? I've emailed a few old school apple sellers in hopes they might have one collecting dust on a shelf somewhere; but they are all long out of stock. Oh well...going to have to keep an eye on tho
  12. Formatted the HD and did a nice full fresh install of 9.0.4. I think that is going to be this machine's happy place. Sound works perfectly.
  13. Wow; nice Newton haul! I need to get mine out and play with them again.
  14. Trying to install on my CF Card, but as soon as it gets started it says "The Application "Drive Setup" could not be opened" EDIT: 9.0.4 is cooperating so guess i'll use that to install that on the CF HD Thanks guys!
