  1. Basically, title. Got a couple of G3s a few months ago. One of them in great shape, 512 MB RAM, PCMCIA 802.11n card (although it only works under OS X) and a rare Wegener Media G4 at 550 MHz. The daughter card looks just like a stock one but apparently the folks over at Wegener grafted on a G4 and added 1 MB L2 cache. And I have two other G3/400s, one is in great shape (just needs new hinges), and the other is just for parts. So the maxed-out one is where I'm having problems - 1) It doesn't boot reliably. Sure, it chimes 100% of the time, either with its new battery or
  2. I have found a Lombard for spare parts and was wondering, if the keyboard have the same switches as my Pismo (since I lack a few). Perhaps the chassis could fit as well? (Since my sister, spilled acetone nail-polish remover on it in 2002). BW, Kristian
  3. Hi all, im wondering if anyone might be able to make any suggestions regarding a 400mhz Pismo I have. As the title suggests, it boots so long as its plugged in at the mains and the reset button that sits among the ports has been pressed for a bit. The obvious first thing to do was to disconnect the dead pram battery however that hasn't soulved it.Can anyone suggest what I might be able to try next? Many thanks
  4. All, I am on the hunt for a sleeve or skin for my Pismo(s). I'd like to find a simple black one that will fit the thicker Powerbook G3 units. All the current ones I see are rather narrow/shallow both in height as well as with the front-back distance. Is there NOS or left-overs that someone could recommend?
  5. Anyone know the answer to this? I have a buyer looking for a Pismo inverter, would like to cannibalize one non-working Lombard for that, but I can't remember if that is the same part or not... Thanks for any help.
  6. Hallo everybody! I don't think these will excite anybody as much as the likes of hap's collection or, indeed, anyone else's; but I am pretty excited with what I've got. So I found a few old CD-ROMs at a charity shop that won't run on os-x; they're for classic or windows pre-xp only and as my only machine was a series-1 MacBook (fairly vintage too, right?) so I messed around with Basilisk for a bit before asking my uncle if he still had his old PowerBook....which I thought was a y2k FireWire. It took him so long to find it that I had already bought and received a badly described but beautiful
  7. New tech objects in the Smithsonian collection - Pismo on the list! And several other good choices for these artifacts. http://www.adweek.com/news-gallery/advertising-branding/12-modern-tech-devices-smithsonian-saving-posterity-164916
  8. I have a two Pismos with two dead batteries. One is original, other one is aftermarket. When I first got the Pismos, the batteries did try to charge when first plugged, but they stopped at around a third, and then they did not charge anymore after. The first (genuine one), tries to charge for a minute and then stops. If I leave it for about two weeks disconnected, and sometimes it charges to 8-15%, then it just stops. Then the computer works a few minutes from it and sometimes it just shuts down immediately. Voltage in System Profiler is 9300 mV (OS 10.4) when left not charging, it rises t
