Re: info about PowerMacs

Well yes, there are certain people who will constantly tell you how a certain model line/generation of Power Macs are all terrible, but as an owner of multiple Power Macs and a member of that forum I've gotten plenty of help as well.

Re: your latest purchase

Value Village is a magical mythical place to a Northeasterner like me...a strange world where you can buy mid 90s computers for 5 dollars, as opposed to literally no thrift store here selling computers.

Free retro gaming TV! It's an Emerson ECR2100. 19 inch color set, just needs the vertical adjusted...

Oh yeah? I had no idea you could mod old TVs like that. Then I wouldn't need a modulator.

Re: your latest purchase

I got this really adorable little Zenith color TV, it works but I don't seem to have an RF modulator any more to use it...

Re: Have any one seen any good anime lately?

I decided to start watching one of the all time classics: Revolutionary Girl Utena.

Should be an interesting time.

Re: your latest purchase

I got a nice little Pioneer dual cassette player from the thrift store...it's a CT-W770. Sadly not one of the neat -DR models like the CT-W616DR but still not a bad dual cassette machine for 8 dollars.

Ah, they were smart and didn't use the leaky SMD cans! It's those that cause all the problems.

Re: your latest purchase

The main problem with those ESDI drives is that they have capacitors on the drive controller board that go bad. The same thing is the culprit behind PS/2 floppy drive failures.

Re: your latest purchase

Yeah, that's why I'm just going to get a SCSI controller for it...it's a lot easier to use something like a SCSI2SD with a controller card than trying to find a working ESDI drive.

Re: your latest purchase

I've got two main obstacles with mine...one much bigger than the other.

For starters, I've got no hard disk. That's kind of a major issue.

Less importantly, the VGA connector on the PS/2 has a pin blanked off and I don't have any VGA monitors with that pin missing from their connector...
