I had a great time chatting with James and John in making their last episode of the RetroMacCast. I hope that some people found it interesting, if maybe a little long. Thanks to James and John for inviting me along!
My collection is going pretty well at present.
I'm currently on the lookout to complete my PPC Apple Powerbook collection. I've recently found a 1400c to match the 1400cs I got earlier this year. It should arrive from interstate (Australia) soon.
I'm starting down the 5300 series now. I'm currently looking for a 5300ce.
In the Duo line - I'm still chasing the elusive Duo280 (non-colour) to round out that collection.
My current problem with the Powerbook collection, is the number of 2.5" SCSI drives that are failing. I'm looking for a cheap solution, but it would look like getting a 2.5" SCSI to IDE flash adapter is the likely fix. But they still come in at around AUD$100 each!
On the desktop front, I'm still looking for an Apple Worksgroup Server 95 and 7350 to round out those areas and a PowerMac/Performa 5260. Otherwise I'm pretty much up to the slot loading iMac series.
In the meantime, I have a friend who is cleaning out their IT department who has offered me a whole pile of equipment and magazines. I've arranged to take next Monday to visit and grab as much as possible.
I'm on a month's leave from next week and I am hopeful that I can finally take some time to clean out my collection room and get it a bit better organised. One major task will be to identify all the 14 inch monitors that work, and clean out those that don't - I have lots of them!
Also need to clear out some of the pizza box Macs (LCs and IIsi's) that take up so much room too.
That's about it from me at the moment.
Feel free to drop me a line.
