Re: your latest purchase

Those are some affordable Amigas! Especially if that 500 came with a mouse, power brick, and software.

Re: your latest purchase

I spent a bit too much on a mystery PC ($35)...I was enticed by the huge server-type case but inside it turned out to be a Pentium 4 gamer rig that doesn't boot properly. Why can't I get away from NetBurst machines, I've had like six of the things and even when I'm not looking for them I seem to end...

Re: What extremely rare (non-prototype) computers do you wish you could find?

I just thought of another one I didn't know existed until very recently: an AlphaBook, made by Tadpole. I've seen SPARCbooks and their RS/6000 PPC laptop but never an AlphaBook.

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

Playing around with a Sony Mavica I saved from recycling. Battery's completely dead though, which is a shame.

Re: your latest purchase

Man, one of my dumbest decisions was letting my Vita update to 3.61. There is some hacking you can do to 3.61 but it's nowhere near as extensive or stable as HENKAKU is.

Re: your latest purchase

A Power Macintosh G3 desktop. Fully loaded but currently not working (at least, that's what the eBay seller says, I don't have it yet).

If I can get it up and running it will be the perfect machine for making old Mac floppies!

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

Looking at SCSI CD-ROM drives on eBay. Dunno why I'm bothering. Me too, the nightmarishly slow and ancient Teac on my Octane2 finally crapped out. I consider this an opportunity for advancement... ;) It's less that and more that finding what I actually need is so difficult to find (especially for a...

Re: your latest purchase

Very nice! I don't have a Plus (wish I did) but I do have a 512k with a nifty 68020 accelerator board and 4MB of RAM onboard as well as Plus ROMs and an 800k floppy drive. It's a really cool machine but no hard disk and only being able to use up to System 6.0.8 is a bit of a bummer. At least it work...

Re: your latest purchase

The last Trinitron I found was free but turned out to not work, what a shame...usually when free TVs pop up they're cheapo garbage.

Nice! PC-98 keyboards are all interchangeable, my Cx2 has a later keyboard that works just fine.

It's not here yet, it's from Russia.


Well I've never seen one of those before! That's pretty rad!

Re: your latest purchase

It's some kind of proprietary. Turns out it will run but with extra stress on the PSU. Since these PSUs are apparently infamous for failing I'll just wait until I can buy a transformer.

Re: your latest purchase

The info label on the side says "50Hz/60Hz" so the PSU must be able to handle both but I'm not sure if it would handle 20% more voltage.
