================================ Fun Notes ================================

1. The alternate/back-up OS on the main drive is 'Terok Nor', a Classic instance that I cannot properly configure without the original install disk (still looking...)

2. "Promenade" is the dumping ground for A/V media.

3. This is the 'sweet spot' OS for me and this machine in that *ALL* of my Classic **AND** all of my current Cocoa devices will recognize and connect to it on the network.

4. Finally solved my OS 9 booting issues and he systems boots comfortably into OS 9.2.2 on demand.

5. Got a powered USB Hub so high power-drawing peripherals do not cause system complaints.

 

================================ Issues ===================================

1. The Studio Display has a bad capacitor and will not stay powered on - need to crack 'er open and check it out. Need to research any available tech/repair manuals and ensure I have the right tools before I even try...

2. The *ONE* app i would kill to run on this system is the latest version of Lego Digital Designer - the version that will run is too old for the pieces I want to model.

3. The DVD (Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-105) no longer works in Classic or Cocoa...

I love your naming scheme!

 

If it ever goes down just blame it on a dominion attack.
