The people that work there were very helpful. It only took about 5 minutes to check in my machine for service.
Hello friends of old apple computers!
See my new homepage at:
Because I had nothing better to do today at work, I took all the letters and punctuation off an iBook keyboard I had lying around. I also used the tab, caps lock, return, etc. just so I could have the 3 rows completely white.
Theres actually a few benefits to doing this:
The ENTIRE key now glows when I turn on the keyboard light- it looks way cool!
Been a long time, but I'm back...
When I'm not fiddling with old computers, disrupting the smooth flow of the Internet or saving the world from impending doom, I'm an astronomy educator and writer. To be honest, I spend a great deal of time doing just that (it was my profession once). My interest in computing actually stems form my interest in space science.
I had been posting before about buying an OLPC, but once I figured out what I was looking for in a sub-notebook/PDA, it looked more and more like the Asus eeepc was what I wanted.
Had a bit of Christmas money left, so I'm now posting from my new 2G Surf version.
First thoughts: cool. Small. Cool.
The keyboard will take some getting used to. It, too, is very small.
I have several II's and not enough room to keep them all. A pair of IIe enhanced, a plain IIe, and even a II+, all of which work. Also some spare plain IIe mb's, unknown functionality. Ditch the plus, b/c I can sustain my IIe population? Or the IIe's, b/c they rely on custom soldered in chips?
After a while with no internet, I'm glad to be back.
I've finally got my first computer job!
Took delivery of a skidload of apple stuff just before xmas as i knew i would have some time then. Fixed up the imacs and B & W's to dispose off and broke up most of the other stuff into the parts bins. Did get some nice old bits, including some machines i have not owned before like an 8550 (appleshare file server) an 8500 MP, a 5300 and two 3400 powerbooks, which should prove interesting.
Connie, as I have lovingly named my 8600 PM, has a few upgrades. Because I can (my mantra), I am documenting in this blog, what has been done and what is planned or in process.
**This post is a work in progress and is being updated as I record correct specs and change hardware.**
