Where great old Macs live again!

My Workplace Shrine

This is the very nice Mac Classic II that adorns my desk area at work. It's visible from the hallway and gets many great comments from people that are amazed it still works or that used to do work on a toaster mac. I installed a much quieter fan in it as well as a solid state SCSI Drive, it's very quiet.

Thank you for not using the squishy abomination of a keyboard that Apple began shipping with the original wave of low-cost Macs.

Also, is that a RetroMacCast staff badge? How can I apply to work there?

Also also, you appear to have barricaded yourself in your office by way of that filing cabinet. Time to kick back and fire up Dark Castle!

What did you use for the SSD?

Derek, I made some RetroMacCast business cards for handing out at computer festivals :) also, I see nothing wrong with barricading yourself in at work. You can get so much more done that way (or, you know, play Dark Castle)

The SSD is a SCSI2SD http://shop.codesrc.com. They are a little pricy but it's kind of cool adding 16gb of storage to a retro mac :) and no noise!!. Even if you don't get one use internally, I recommend getting one to use externally. The newer SCSI2SDs use so little power that they can be powered through the scsi port on most old systems. Just make sure to get the SCSI2 50pin to SCSI1 DB25 Adapter.
