Re: IBM T221 killed by incompetence - one more for packing stuff properly

The seller returned from the ashes. He said he had been in hospital and asked me to ship the broken display back. I told him I'm happy to do so if he pays shipping. I guess that's fair right? Assuming he really was in hospital... Otherwise I'd just keep it. I haven't had time to look deeply into it,...

Re: IBM T221 killed by incompetence - one more for packing stuff properly

Hamei, there's more... It will happily take a 12Hz and a 48Hz input and sync each half of the screen at a different rate, whilst outputting 41 or 48 Hz. I've tried that. =) Also it will do one half of the screen scaled and the other half unscaled if required. The scaler in indeed brilliant. Dependin...

Re: IBM T221 killed by incompetence - one more for packing stuff properly

It is, it is, but I have what may be a better suggestion ? Take that one apart since it's already badly broken, document the process, and figure out what the backlight is ? And how to get in there and replace one ? That would be a service to all the T221 owners around. But if you want to sell the e...

Re: IBM T221 killed by incompetence - one more for packing stuff properly

Guys, "happy end"! The seller stopped replying completely, and eBay refunded me completely, including shipping, and I don't need to ship the screen back. I think the new one I ordered from Canada is already waiting for me at customs. @hamei: I remember you mentioned your screen is a bit di...

Re: info about PowerMacs

Low End Mac has facebook groups. I'm not on facebook so I don't know how they go.
The e-mail lists were very nice. Now they are mostly silent but seldom you see a message or two.
If you write, usually there's an answer.

Re: Adaptec 2100s? (SCSI)

When I last looked at this, the Adaptec cards for Macs had different name (PowerDomain), and different firmware.
You could re-flash them as far as I remember.

There used to be Mac equivalent of most Adaptec cards.

Re: Apple to stop using Intel processors in Macs, reports say

At this point, I don't care that much, but it would be lovely to see some serious investment in non x86/amd64 end-user facing workstations and laptops.

Re: IBM T221 killed by incompetence - one more for packing stuff properly

Thanks guys for making me smile. I'll look for another one. I should easily get the money back from eBay, given that I also filmed unboxing. The box was very poorly handled. It was hit so many times it was completely soft when I got it. Possibly (as it has happened to me on eBay), they will refund m...
