Re: Mac OS 9 in 4K res - pointless evening

What on earth kind of card and monitor combo are you running to accomplish that?

Or you could read the OP:

Oh man do I feel dumb...

Re: your latest purchase

There was a Sony VE-700/VE700 VideoCD player for $7. It came to $6.80 after I shook it with the tray open and two dimes fell out of it.
The lens needed a clean but otherwise seems to play discs fine in NTSC.

Re: your latest purchase

My car is fitted with CB, minidisc, CD and satellite radio but no telephone options. ;)

Now I wonder if I can fit a fax machine under the passenger seat.....

I just paid $422 for a car phone. A goddamn car phone....in 2018.

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

I converted one of the early Logitech serial mice to PS/2. In the process because it was easier than expected it also became an optical mouse. http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a166/ballsandy/Computer%20related/CGS_7807.jpg http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a166/ballsandy/Computer%20related/CGS_7809...

Re: Indigo2 Purple Bag

Yeah don't wait for me.
I've been doing the math and assuming I can get it carry-on with those dimensions an Indigo2 with the peripherals and an LCD is just too heavy for anything but checked baggage.

Re: Features that a vintage machine must have in order to spark your interest?

The thing is, 99% of the units out there are incomplete. Sure, fancy case and possibly the matching monitor, but no host machine, no cabling and especially no software. $30000 buys you something to have repeated sexual encounters with because it was blessed by a balding douche who croaked form cancer.

Re: Vintage machine features that spark your interest?

Something that came with the machine that was not an option and certainly not something other OEM's were doing. One thing that comes to mind is the Quadra 660AV with its integrated ViVo and DSP acceleration. Another is the Apricot Xen and it's trackball mouse and two line LCD with programmable butto...

Re: Vintage Computer Festival - PNW Feb 10-11

I was going to go. I was totally planning a full shebang exhibit showing everything form an Onyx to an Ultra64 Indy and IrisVision PS/2.

....and I chickened out. ;_;

I wish everyone the best at VCF:PNW. This is a real test of the waters. They've never had such an event this far north before.

Re: Mac Pro El Capitan Recovery?

Yeah, there has been an expectation for a while now that eventually Apple would figure out another way to prevent people from using hardware more than five years old. Funny how that business model works. ;) What exactly is the process for replacing the boot.efi file? All the procedures I can find on...

Mac Pro El Capitan Recovery?

Getting El capitan to install on a 1,1 Mac pro is a bit of a task. I can't say how I did it or where I got it but in the end I was left with a single 8gb usb stick that would let you perform the install as if it was a bootable CD or any other bootable USB media, however because of the nature, the Ap...

Re: Indigo2 Purple Bag

What are the dimensions of the front pouch?
Also how thick is the outer padding? Is it enough to prevent the skin from scuffing or enough that I would not expect case skins to crack and shatter if handled a little rough?
