     At last Saturday's SCCAN meeting, member Tim W. gave me an incomplete classic Mac - just the unit and keyboard but no cables.  He had tried to give it away at last year's AmiWest Show, but nobody touched it.  He kind of slid it into my car, and I didn't have the backbone to say no.  Smiley  Now what do I do with it?  My only hope is to play a version of Star Trek on it.  Smiley

Why, turn it into a Macquarium, of course!

I too have an old classic mac complete with the 800k drive, keyboard and mouse and it still works.  A Macintosh plus if I remember it also used 30 pin simms for ram and could easily be upgraded to 4 megabytes of ram.  When I have the space for it I will be setting it up again with a small scsi hard disk I have for it.

I too have a fully functional Mac Plus.  It served to remind me of how very much superior the Amiga was to the Mac back in those days.

     If I could find the link again, there was a person who gutted a classic Mac, installed a color LCD screen, and put in the innards of a Mac Cube G4 running OS X 4.x.  It was better then.  Smiley
