  1. I picked up an Apple Macintosh 512k for Christmas. Though I am not much of an Apple guy, I always wanted one of these in my collection. So I'm trying to find a list of software, not so much for the 128k but for the 512k system. I've done several searches on the world wide web and haven't found a single, easy to read, list. I'm looking for both 1st party and 3rd party software that was available in the time frame that system was being sold. I know, I'm asking for a lot but can anyone help me?
  2. I bought a Mac Mini G4 1.25GHZ on eBay, it's in the mail as I type this so I don't have it to hand at the moment, and in the photograph, the top of the case is yellowed like the yellowing you see on beige box computers from back in the 80s and SNES consoles from the 90s, etc. I'm wondering whether or not this is the same process, and if it is, would retrobrite treatment work to restore the white color; can retrobrite even be done on the white part of the top of the Mac Mini case without messing up the rest of the case? Secondly, how difficult is it to overclock the Mini G4 and how stable is it at the various clock speeds(1.5GHZ being the obvious choice)? If I proceed with doing the OC, is there anything I should be concerned about? I've done soldering on an Xbox 360(glitch chip, JTAG) so the size of the resistors and the simplicity of the soldering doesn't really intimidate me, but obviously I don't want to break something if it's extremely sensitive.
  3. I have a few Atari ST items up for auction on ebay. "Cleaning out the attic". These items were from my own Atari ST setup back in the day. These auctions end today (sorry about the late notice). The most interesting items is probably the Spectre GCR (by Gadgets by Small) hardware Macintosh emulator. Here is the wikipedia page for the Spectre GCR: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spectre_GCR You can also find some youtube videos of this device in action. My current Atari ST auctions. Spectre GCR http://www.ebay.com/itm/301850740308 520ST power supply: http://www.ebay.com/itm/301850753109 Power supply for SF354 disk drive: http://www.ebay.com/itm/301850759871 (another) Power supply for SF354 disk drive: http://www.ebay.com/itm/301850761482 I also have some auctions ending today for some Atari 8-bit stuff. I will be posting up some new auctions for Atari stuff (8bit and ST) soon. Check out my other ebay listings here: http://www.ebay.com/sch/chris82369/m.html
  4. Hey guys, just putting out a feeler here to see if anybody has a Mac Mini G4(tested, confirmed working) or similarly specced PPC Mac that can run OS 9(hacked installer or otherwise, but not classic mode in OS X) they are willing to part with. The Mac Mini 1.25GHZ/power supply I just got off eBay and that I am in the process of returning due to it not working properly ran me about $50 shipped, so I was hoping for something in that neighborhood. I was really hoping for ~1GHZ or more clockspeed if something other than a Mini, but again, this is intended to be an OS 9 rig and I don't have a ton of wiggle room on the price including shipping so no 2.0GHZ upgraded G4s, sadly. Just as an aside, I wish Apple had made something with the performance of a Mac Mini that had the form factor of an iMac G4(and that could run OS 9, yadda yadda). What a beautiful machine.
  5. It's crazy, but that's the point of all of my "Wishing for..." posts. I can imagine taking the Ultimate Flashback concept to the absurd level by placing it inside a Macintosh AIO case (Mac SE, SE/30, Classic, etc) for a truly portable, better-than-Vectrex-like experience. There would be so much space inside the case that there would be room for a super-large battery, so taking the whole thing to the park to play would be possible for an hour or two. What could better on a picnic than playing some Sea Battle? Actually it would be very similar to http://johan.kanflo.com/another-raspberry-pi-powered-macintosh-classic/now that I have done a Bingle search to see if anything similar has been tried...
  6. So I recently found a lot on craigslist. I've been looking for an apple II to add to my collection and this lot had that and more. After coming to an agreement on price I met with the woman to pick up everything. When I did I was blown away by how much was actually in the lot. She explained to me that she used to work at Apple and, without giving her name and actual title, I will say that she was high up in the education division at apple. She also had a big hand in the EWorld network that apple tried to get off the ground to compete with AOL. So I'm not quite sure if I've got something really good in this lot. Here is just a small list of some of the things in the lot: Apple II+ with monitor and disk drive (all work fine) Apple II GS complete setup with 3.5" and 5.25" disk drives (boots up but have not tested the drives Mac SE setup in an official apple Mac carrying bag (boots up) Hundreds of boxed software titles from games to Office programs to educational tiles. tons of sealed titles Lots of sealed titles labeled DEMO, NOT FOR RESALE, and EVALUATION COPY ONLY (games, educational titles, and office software - inlucded a sealed "Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?" labled as a Review Copy) Apple promotional items like pins, bumper stickers, water bottles, mugs still sealed in the packaging Apple computer club shirts Apple eworld shirts Apple Employee convention lanyards Apple Employee Christmas cards and gifts Mission Impossible/Apple cross promotional posters (huge posters) Disks sealed in envelope withe "REVIEW ONLY" stickers on it (Apple system update disks for employees I believe) There were a lot of items labeled as DEMO and such because companies would send her software for her to review for Apple to give the Ok. Much of the copies here are not opened and still sealed. What's really cool to me is that I grew up using an apple II and IIGS at school. Because of her position, the computers she gave me were the ones she personally used to for work. So to think that the computers I just got had a hand in the development and review of the software I used as a kid is just really great. I paid $200 for everything. I'm just not sure if all the demo sealed items (also some not sealed) are anything special or if they are common enough. And I don't know much about the promotional items, whether they are particularly collectible or not. I will upload pictures as well bit by bit. (my computer is giving me issues with this)
  7. Hi all, I have a new video up showing my adventure as I try to get an Apple ImageWriter II printing with a Macintosh LC II Hope you enjoy! Steve https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LQiUcjZayM
  8. Hey guys. I was at my local Habitat for Humanity today doing a bit of thrifting to kill time before work and stumbled onto what I consider to be quite the find, at least for my area. There was a Power Mac G5 1.6 GHZ tower sitting there with no price looking a little worse for wear but otherwise in pretty good condition. The resident tech expert guy and I had a bit of a conversation about the unit and he agreed to test it out and value it so that I could decide if it was something I wanted to grab. On power up, the fan would spin and the single white LED on the front would flash once every five seconds. Being that there wasn't a chime sound, I knew immediately the system wasn't POSTing successfully and explained it to the guy, who thought for a moment and said that he really didn't want to deal with it and offered it to me for $5. Yes, please. A bit of research has led me to suspect the ram as being the culprit. I tried removing and reseating both 128MB sticks, trying them in the various slots, but no change was observed so I ordered a couple replacement sticks to see if they can make it work. I have also read some amount of anecdotal evidence suggesting the early G5s are prone to solder joint failure, particularly on the ram slots which is a bit worrisome. I have limited experience with Macintosh towers. My experience with Macs in general comes from an iMac 600MHZ I used to have as well as a couple of iterations of laptops. I figure the absolute worst case is that I can use the machine for parts if I can't make it work, but I wonder if it's worth swapping the logic board or whether there are any potential pitfalls I should be aware of?
