Rescued before it went to the curb - guy said it didn't 'work' with XP. A most excellent printer with parallel to hook to the HP printer server, ethernet for the Appleshare IP network and localtalk for the old machines...although i can bring up the localtalk bridge when necessary...
I upgraded my mini to 1GB of RAM tonight. It is certainly more responsive during use, esp. when multitasking. I logged in and started FireFox, which opens the last 6 tabs I had open when it was closed. Then I switched users to my wife's account and started up FF there which opened the last site she was at.
I've put my G4 project on hold until the new processor arrives...then I can determine whether or not I need a new logic board, or if I should bite the bullet and but a whole system to save me the trouble of sourcing the other parts I'll require.
Been wanting to build a dual MP mac for some time but 9600's have been hard to come by, even offered $40 for one!
For now I'll just post: Portable, original case, manuals. Great shape, no boot yet. Cost: one of you probably knows, but it was WAY less that it's worth.
I have been looking for a steady job for some time, and since I am not up on certification, I can't really get a job in the computer area right now.
Well, the little beast came in today...
Well, I finally found one. Ever since reading that lowendmac.com article about silent computing (regarding a PB100 and its lack of hard drive), the old eBay fever set in once again. I didn't find a 100. I found... a 150.
Pleased as punch, that's me.
I've successfully set up an Ubuntu server on an older Dell box.
I've used the fantastic instructions Here (Thanks, Jon Peck!)
So I got this Macbook Pro for my birthday, on the 13th of January. Previously, I'd been using primarily Windows XP and OS 9 on my Powerbook 1400.
