Nope, not our friendly uniformed protectors of all things AppleFriter... Smile

What happened to all of the MODs that should be going in the HACKS section?

We've got quite a few people showing stuff in the forums, like Gossamer's G3 in a Classic case, and Project Yellowbox, but nothing really posted in the HACKS area. I'd say a mod-a-thon or contest is in order. It would be cool to see a new set of step-by-steps, and I'm more than willing to contribute if given a few months to get some stuff going. Perhaps before the year is over, or the fall? I might float this idea with some of the Grand Poobas if there is enough interest.

Whaddaya think. (If you think I'm a nut, tell me)

i had one

but tom owad kept telling me that he would put it up, and he never did. This is a Link To what I wanted Tom to put up. You can see for yourself. It was my first hardware hack, and I am proud of it. It's still kinda crude for a hack. I wish i could get some better equipment to do the hacking.

Peanuts are legumes.

I don't think you're nutty though, hacks always provide interesting reading.

I'm working on a "hack" involving Mac Plus(es) at the moment... but knowing my schedule it may be years before it comes to fruition.

To clarify, I told you the article, and particularly the images, needed improvement.

Wrong.

True nuts are NOT legumes. Real nuts are fruit (horticulturally speaking)

Peanuts are legumes, but peanuts aren't really nuts.
