Re: Prolonging the Mac's life

Some sound strategies for prolonging you mac's life: Strategy 1 Remove all the electrolytic capacitors and replace them with tantalum capacitors. Reason, electrolytic caps will eventually leak and cause damage to the board itself. Strategy 2 If applicable for the machine you are considering to work ...

Re: PowerMac G3 beige tower: Upgrading HDD, two accidents and one mystery

I glued C14 to the board and tried it. I would at the very least desolder the one electrolytic capacitor (C14), glue is not a good idea I am sorry to say. If I was in your shoes I would desolder all the electrolytic capacitors off that board and replace them with equivalent tantalum caps. Just avoi...

Re: iMac 4.1 OS installation fails with 10.4 to 10.6

Could report back with the exact Mac model you have?

You can refer to this article on how to do that. https://everymac.com/mac-identification ... ation.html

Knowing which iMac can help solve the issue.

Re: What emulator do I use if I want to emulate a Pippin?

I found an emulator here. It's for Windows. http://www.emu-france.com/emulateurs/5-consoles-de/364-apple-pippin/6742-bandai-pippin-world/ I would imagine the Mac OS emulators would work as well but I haven't tried a single Pippin title in an emulator nor on real 603e compatible hardware. Best wishes.

Re: Overclock eMac 1.25GHz to 1.5GHz without voltage increase

Thanks for sharing.

I did something similar, went from an eMac 1GHz to 1.25GHz. Works flawlessly.

RSS feed?

I was wondering if there is an RSS feed for the forum. Checked the FAQ but it came back blank.

Discs art

In an effort to stir up some conversation I just wanted to let folks that I am currently recreating a few hundred Apple discs. Not the sleeves just the discs. Any comments, thoughts or other questions? I would be interested to know what folks think as I work through these. Maybe you all think I am c...
