Where great old Macs live again!

Been listening to the back podcasts since James and John have been on hiatus - it's easy to hear a half dozen shows a day.
I've found that much exposure can cause vintage mac-anosis and now I have gone through and my collection, replacing batteries and chasing away the dust bunnies.

An old friend is my Apple PowerCD multimedia player.
It displays well on monitors controlled by computer, or just hooked to your TV.

That's a really nice setup there!

Been looking for both, Quadra 700 and PowerCD for ages, those just don't come across anymore.

So true. I was lucky to find the PowerCD on ebay with it's remote.

I first saw a Quadra 700 in the mini documentary, 'The Making of Myst' and thought how cool it would be to have one.

It's amazing what those guys did and at the time the Quadra was the bomb!

The quadra 700 was amazing and fast, but expensive bought one in 1991, maxed out, for my architectural 3D software the configuration is stlll in working condition

Nice setup.

I have MicroModel l.5 installed and it does ok with it, still kind of slow rendering though.
It would be fun to load StrataVision 3D and try to replicate some of the models seen in Myst.
