this is "off every topic" here but I made my special hack out of the motorola processors. If you are able to communicate in German I would like to ask you if you like to vote for my project.
I entered a contest provided by THE German IT-Magazine c´t which is called "mach flott den Schrott" which means "get going the scrap" - and lets the attendees show their projects they made out of old computer parts.
If somebody is interested in supporting to keep even old Mac-parts alive (and is able to communicate in German) please vote here: (pics available there too)
excuse me: the voting process is not easy, sorry, they are German engineers...
The most interesting projects will be displayed at cebit, Hanover, Germany - THE computer fare - at least in Europe.
As proof of my MacAddiction: Newton 2100, Mac 512, Powerbook Duo 280 c, Powerbook G3 Lombard, Mac Cube upgraded to 1,0 GHz, Mac G5 1,8, ipod 4th Gen. 20 GB, 2 TV-SAT-Boxes with Linux, Airport since 1999 ... - uuuuooh: forgot my Internet-Server: Mac G3 233 Mhz - I am OnWeb since 1985... with a mac, what else?
My next project will be making a picture frame out of the PB duo - thanks for the instructions, James Roos! (I got no useful job for the powerbook duo anymore... any other device has one!) At the contest somebody stole your idea... I will send an Email to him and the magazine!
Thanks to all who would like to support this project!
With best regards,
