SCSI fuse advice (or, how to kill a ThinkPad 800 with a SCSI2SD)

I was antsy about the 2.5" SCSI in my ThinkPad 800 (the original Type 6020 which was never, apparently, sold), so based on reports that it works fine with the TP850, I bought a "PowerBook" SCSI2SD of the same type I currently use in my PowerBook 540c, configured it and installed it. I...

I think you need a Talos II. :)

Re: Eclectic Light: "We need to document macOS"

Mac OS X Internals is a great read, but it's 1) not written by Apple 2) limited to 10.4 and earlier, though this is perfectly fine with me (typing on a Tiger iMac G4). Apple only supports developers to the minimum extent software can actually get written. Even their TNs and other documentation befor...

Those aren't hard to find. Fry's carries them for around $40.

Re: PowerPC Macs - Are They Still Useful?

The vast majority of programs work in Classic; the only one I remember that benefitted from booting OS 9 was SuperCollider 2/3. Sure, they'll work, and that's why 10.4 is my preferred version of OS X on PowerPC. But OS 9 on the raw metal is a lot faster, and some apps don't work quite right in Clas...

Re: PowerPC Macs - Are They Still Useful?

You could use a 1GHz TiBook. Those will still run 9.2.2. I have an 867MHz and a 1GHz TiBook, and they're great mobile OS 9 workstations.

Re: Your first SGI encounter

Indys at the Salk Institute when I interned there as an undergraduate (summer of 1996). They were ostensibly for protein visualization but they got mostly used for xdoom. :)

Re: Burnt AAUI on PM6100??

That definitely sounds like a hardware failure. It's probably just easier to find a NuBus card, though with what you've got in there, you may not have the room ;) Also, I've never run the G3 and the HPV card together with a NuBus card in a 6100. I'm not even sure that's possible. I have an "SR-...

Re: Talos Secure Workstation

The major part of the added cost was the workstation video card. The rest of it was pretty close to retail, so I just threw it all in so it can come ready to go.

Not sure who had the Integrals. I was tempted by it, but they one they had on display had, uh, issues.

Re: [ebay][uk] DEC AlphaPC 164SX

Nice grab!

I've got an LX running Tru64. It's pretty neat, the only Alpha I've ever owned so far. I stuck it in a black case with custom Alpha-themed decals. :)
