Re: Mystery w/TAM and AppleTalk

Thanks!

I'll give that a try and see what happens. I'd really like to get this TAM talking...

Mystery w/TAM and AppleTalk

For some reason I can't seem to get my TAM to function over an AppleTalk network. A friend sent me a pair of dongles and I've so far used them to successfully connect a Color Classic, a Duo 280c, a 2400c, and a WallStreet with no hiccups, but the TAM just doesn't want to play.

Details here.

Re: Parts Mules for Old Macs

I know I'm about to go scouring eBay for a Quadra 610 to use for a parts mule. Also to scrounge the CD-ROM drive, since mine doesn't have one...

Re: The Mac's 'Troubling Low' Market Share

...and there's exactly what I meant by "Bunker Mentality". One of the biggest turn-offs for potential Windows switchers is that they might turn into some spittle-on-the-screen rabid fanboy if they purchased a Macintosh. I know that if I thought owning a Mac would have that effect on me, I never woul...

Re: The Mac's 'Troubling Low' Market Share

I have sometimes wondered if the Bunker Mentality is maybe included free in the box with new Macs and I've never gotten it because I always bought used ones...

Seriously, I read the same Thurott piece and didn't see anything to get particularly wound up about.

Re: EmpowerBook

I've always toyed with the idea of purchasing a 2400c to take notes on instead of the more weighty Kanga G3 and 1400c I have had in the past, but the 2400c being so thick, I was never able to fully justify it as being small enough to compensate for the pretty penny they still command on eBay. It's ...

Re: In Praise of the Clamshell iBook

Mine has gone all kinds of places you probably shouldn't take a laptop: The desert, a friend's hot tub, out into the woods to borrow a neighbor's AirPort connection when my 'net connection tanked (he said it was okay) and it just keeps chugging along.

Have I mentioned how much I love the handle?

Re: Clamshell iBooks Reconsidered

I bought a Key Lime trade-in almost seven years ago. It hasn't missed a beat since then and has been a great little road warrior. Two Thumbs Up!

(And why, in Vishnu's name, did Apple drop the built-in handle? That was an absolutely brilliant design touch...)

Re: EmpowerBook

At the moment, I am really rocking out on the 2400c. Itty bitty keyboard or no, it's just so "take it anywhere" portable. Although I found room for a tv tray set up in a corner and I'm going to play with my all-in-ones over the next couple of weeks, too. It's probably some kind of sin to let a worki...
