Where great old Macs live again!

My original Mac 512, later upgraded to a Plus, and much later turned into a clock using HappyPlusClock. You'll note it is on a pedastal.

That's by far better than using an old Mac as an aquarium or a retreat for furry pets !
So the original innards are out, or is it running a clock application ?

I have a Classic II sitting around here with a logic board that won't read an HD (internal or external).

Hah ! There we are - I just checked this out: Indeed, a motherboard of an LC would fit.
You have to remove the passive 'exhausting system' to shove the board in and may need to find a new position for the fan. My LC is taken apart right now - if its board fits, then of course a 475 Performa board will fit, too, and both of them (LC and 475) are cheap and easy to get. So please don't worry.

It's original hardware running HappyPlusClock. You can read more about it and get it here: http://www.vitaphone.net/hpc/

I've downloaded it, even runs with 'Classic' and 'Tiger'.
Nice and easy - thanks for posting the link.
How is the display inverted ?

The display runs white on black from 6:00pm to 6am and black on white from 6am to 6pm. This should prevent, or at least even out, screen burn-in.

The most stupid way of screen saving I ever heard of :-)

Yeah, it's basically evening out the damage.
