Re: Mac OS 7.5.5 and Performa 5400/160

You can use any ISO burning app such as MagicISO or PowerISO. Why not use an USB stick instead of a CD tough? (if your PowerMac has USB ports) Because CD-ROM drives often become defective after 10+ years.

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

Basilisk II is a 68K emulator, it's completely unrelated to PIPP!N which uses a PowerPC CPU.

SheepShaver however is much more up to this task. It's not officially supported, but I've heard people booting some Pipp!n titles with SheepShaver. Why not simply try it and see?

Re: Prolonging the Mac's life

Especially early 2000's hardware was getting really hot, when they cranked up the CPU frequency super high... right before they begin selling dual cores. Those were the only years that I saw with my own eyes some laptops (not mine!) heat sink plastic MELTING. I never saw that before and today we do ...

Re: Suggested ways of getting started

Yes, well, anybody can contribute and make new support articles. I do what I can, but I can't run this whole place by myself. People have to start contributing with their free time and help each other out by composing support articles about all these topics. I made many myself and you could too! :P)...

Re: Mirror whole site?

Nope. Read rule #5 again: https://www.macintoshrepository.org/register.php

We're now at +5TB of files and still adding lots of files. Server costs thousands of dollars per year, just imagine if people would be allowed to download 5TB each. We would shut the project down in a month.

Re: Download Issues

Problem is that the server, after I've waited the specified amount of time comes up with some new random wait period . What glitch am I dealing with, or what am I doing wrong? Wow... absolutely not. Refer to registration rule #5 ("20 files per day max") So here are the last 20 files you've download...
