One step closer to a Takky

I've really suprised myself today. I got the VGA mod done and this project is going well. It has been over 15 years since I've done any kind of electronic type work and it has gone just great. This from a guy who never, ever got a crystal diode radio to work.

Another Project That Interests Me

In addition to the Classic hack I'd like to do (see my blog for 12/22/04 for details), I'd also like to do another computer modification that involves the Apple Portrait Display.

I picked up one from a local thrift store for a couple of bucks. The shape intrigued me ever since I saw the original advertisement, but with an original price of $1050 or so, I just had to be content in waiting. If you are unfamiliar with this monitor, the specifications can be found at EveryMac.com (http://www.everymac.com/monitors/apple/classic_monitors/specs/apple_mac_portrait.html).

Projects I'm wanting to start...

I've recently become a fan of the Color Classic, but have always (well, since 1984) been a fan of the black & white compact Macs. I'd like to do a hack similar to the Mystic or Takky Color Classic, but only on a b&w one.
