FREE to good home (UK): Performa 5400, PowerMac G3, PowerMac 4400/200 & two Apple monitors

Hello all,I'm moving house soon which has necessitated a clear out of some of the old computer gear. I have up for grabs:- Performa 5400 180MHz 136MB RAM, 4GB hard drive. This is actually a Performa 5200 with a 6400/180 motherboard installed, it also has an ethernet and video input card. It is running Mac OS 9.1, would probably be better to put it down to OS 8 or System 7 to speed it up a bit. There's some software and games on the hard drive.- Power Macintosh G3/266 tower, hard drive and RAM…See More

"I think because the club was so old we also got caught between the founder members still wanting the older stuff and the rise of the iPod generation who loved the newer stuff and not a lot of technical info. We finally ran out of people willing to…"

"HI Martin, great idea but as you have found out people just don't want to attend!! I organise one the the NWest's oldest clubs, NWMUG, and we have basically closed after 25 years due to lack of attendance and volunteers, only online now…"

Check out my Mac-related web pages that are being served up by a Macintosh LC 475 in the bottom drawer of my desk! These pages include profiles of many of the Macs in my collection.

RetroChallenge 2008

I'm taking part in this month's RetroChallenge and although my project is not Mac-related, it is still interesting for anyone who's into retro computers. Hint: I'm using a 128K Sinclair Spectrum!

Please visit my blog (hosted by my Macintosh LC 475 server), [here].

I hate you ! I would have lots of macs cluttering the space around me but i was a couple of months to late, You see ...

The schools on the isle of man have been hoarding computers for along time, but about a month before i became interested in old computers the board of education decided to make schools clear out there computers. I missed out on a BOXED Commodore pet and Boxed C64's and also Almost every model of mac since The macintosh plus. I was horrified to find that out. But i have got odds and ends off my school though ... : (

I was bound to join sooner or later. Maybe this will inspire me to resurrect an old Mac SE I acquired a few years ago -- and possibly do something with it for July's RetroChallenge...
