...and a New Mystic is born!
Yesterday I received a nice CC in the mail from a LEM swapper. It was nice and clean with an LC 550 LB, PDS card ethernet, 32 megs of RAM, and a 1.2 gb HD for the princely sum of $85 shipped.
Man, I love the swap list. Anyway. I got home from the movies at 9p, before 10p I had a working Mystic with parts from around the house. The software hack was simple! Thank you for the easy to follow docs. I am a bit of a mess with the soldering gun, so the 640x480 mod is not in my future unless I can con a friend of mine to do it for me.
My Mystic is running 7.6.1, appropriate apps. The latest verision of iCab is posting this and it is nice and stable. I cannot keep Netscape 4 from crashing, tho...Any hints on that?
I would like to take the CC apart and paint it black with some of that flat black Krylon plastic paint. I know that the back plastics are easy. What about the face of the CC? Is that hard to remove? Do I have to completely tear the machine down like I would an SE/30?
Is the 800-4-Memory 128 meg simm worth it?
Does anyone have a backplate for sale to fit a Mystic?
