"The sharks" in this context have entered the vernacular in my family thanks to this comic.


That reminds me of how despite a lot of time and a fair bit of money I NEVER got my Power Macintosh 9600 to work.

A/UX should run a treat on it if i recall correctly.


I plan on running A/UX after I upgrade the RAM a bit. 8MB isn't an awful lot, 16 or 32MB will be much better.

Re: your latest purchase

The IIfx is quite impressive indeed, the amount of engineering that went into making it as fast as a 68k based computer in 1990 could possibly be is astounding!

Yeah, I'm looking to sell mine because I'd rather have a 15 inch...

Very cool! Please document your adventures with it somewhere. =)


I will once I get it. Trying to upgrade the RAM is gonna be "fun" though, thanks to proprietary SIMMs...

I have one that's working but doesn't save PRAM settings for whatever reason. I've got a charger and two extra batteries for it.

Making new cards is never pointless if they serve a purpose or seek to replace rare and expensive vintage cards.

Re: your latest purchase

I got mine at a bargain price. $1100 USD being the going rate for a good spec Tezro puts it out of the reach of most hobbyists. Some of us can't even afford a Fuel, and that's basically 1/4 of a Tezro! :P The thing that beats me is that Fuel's often tend to go for more than Tezro's do on the bay! (...

That reminds me a lot of the NCR 386s, but...more boring.

Re: your latest purchase

I went to Target today to look at Switch games and ended up coming home with a SNES Classic instead! Now to hack it and put on games like Chrono Trigger and Final Fight 2.
