    Overclocked eh? Well aren't you just the l33t one?

    Seriously, I never heard of someone overclocking a TiPB. Did you ever do a write up on it?

    G4 Cube 450/CD-RW / 1.1GB / 20GB and Sony 21" FD Trinitron monitor -- my main system -- running OS X 10.1.1.

    PowerBook G3 (Pismo, Rev. B) / 320 MB / 10 GB running OS X 10.1.1.

    Power Macintosh 9500/G3-350 (upgraded) / 160 MB / 20 GB (total drive space) and AppleVision 1710 monitor. Running OS 9.1, the last OS that will install on this machine (unless you use an unsupported hack).

    NeXT Turbo 25 slab and monitor; don't have all the specs memorized, as I recently bought it from someone on the MacNN forums. Currently running NeXTStep 3.3. I think.

    Dell Pentium III 550 mhz / 192 MB / 6 GB for when I need to use a Windoze-only app. Needless to say, it doesn't see much use, though it nonetheless has Win XP, IE 6, and all the latest goodies. Boy, sure would suck to have to pay for all that.

    AST Pentium 75 mhz / 32 MB / 20 GB running FreeBSD 4.3. This is my gateway machine.

    Two old Quadra 700s, one running 7.something and one running NetBSD. Got them from eBay to tool around with; haven't actually done much as yet. They also threw in an old Performa 410 for kicks, which I can't find much use for anyway. One 12-inch monitor to share among the three of these.

    Apple II GS, bought from eBay. With 5.25 and 3.5-inch drives and a joystick. Unfortunately, not a Woz edition, but it runs my old software from the //c days (see below). Came with an ImageWriter // printer, though that kind of got broken in transit.

    Original Macintosh 128k from 1984. Bought from eBay (again) from someone who kept the original boxes, packing materials, manuals, even the audio tapes. Really nice, but . . . beyond the initial thrill when I bought it, I'm not sure what I can do with it. Also has an ImageWriter printer.


    No-name 386DX/40 with 4 MB RAM. Ran Windoze 3.1, then became a FreeBSD/Linux box after I moved to Macs in 1996.

    Packard Hell 386SX/16. (shudder)

    No-name IBM PC/XT-compatible.

    Original Apple //c with monochrome monitor. We later bought a 640k RAM upgrade from a company whose name had some kind of chess theme. But I forget the actual name.

    Timex Sinclair 1000, although that doesn't really count, because my parents got it by driving to Virginia to listen to some stupid time-share pitch, but really, it was just to get the free gift.

    In the mid-80s, I also would toy with Apple //e's or original Mac 128s when my father would bring them home from work during the weekend or something.

    In the early 80s, I used to occasionally putter around on some old Hazeltine terminal when my father, once in a while, brought it home from work to dial into the university mainframe at a whopping 300 -- or maybe 110? -- baud.

    Hrm, it's been a long ride.

    Notes: I got this for free when an Apple certified tech said the logicboard was dead. (The zip drive and CD drive didn't work) Turns out the Zip drive was dead and the cable to the CD drive had a short. It looked bent. My theory is that the person who was using it tried to fix the Zip drive and did something to the cable in the process. I love free computers.

    Notes: Another free computer, partly because the janitor threw it in a dumpster and scattered pieces of it in several directions. I found all the pieces and re-assembled it, and now it works just fine...sort of. I can't find any monitors that fit it (it has a weird connector), so I can't use it.

    I'm pretty sure I have some more, but I can't recall them right now.

    You could check around ebay for a Performa Monitor Adaptor. I had to use one on my Performa because apple used a weird connector on it. I have one but I'm going to keep it around in case my PDS Video card dies and I have to use the built-in monitor port.

    Hey Leonis, this is getting to be alot of work man, I needed time to prep.

    These are machines I've had since Feb 2000, listed in order.

    400 MHz Pismo PowerBook, DVD, 6 GB HD, 192 MB RAM

    450 MHz G4 Cube, DVD, 20 GB HD, 384 MB RAM

    400 MHz Titanium PowerBook G4, DVD, 10 GB HD, 384 MB RAM

    600 MHz Graphite iMac, CD-RW, 40 GB HD, 384 MB RAM

    466 MHz G4 PowerMac with 15" LCD, CD-RW, 30 GB HD, 384 MB RAM

    500 MHz iBook, CD-RW/DVD, 10 GB HD, 384 MB RAM

    867 MHz G4 with 17" LCD, CD-RW, 60 GB HD, 768 MB RAM

    600 MHz Graphite iMac, CD-RW, 40 GB HD, 512 MB RAM

    550 MHz Titanium PowerBook G4, DVD, 20 GB HD, 512 MB RAM

    Currently still on the Titanium PowerBook. My buyer's money order was held up in customs for reasons they won't tell her, so she's just sent my money with PayPal. I'll be shipping it out next Friday when the money clears, so I've got it for another week.

    I'm still trying to decide on whether to go without a Mac until after MWSF, or grab an iBook until I order my new desktop mid-Jan. I was leaning towards going without, but it looks like my wife and mother-in-law are pitching in some dough to get me an iPod for Christmas. If that's the case, I'll get a combo-drive iBook next week, and sell it in Jan for a new Mac - either a G4/5 or an iMac. Have to see what his Steveness gives us.

    My first comupter was a Commodore 16, well my first real computer was a Performa 6500 250 with a wopping 48megs of ram. I actually need to get rid of the Performa. I don't use it and don't have the space.

    512 megs of DDR ram (with ECC)

    80 Gig HD made of two 40's in a RAID

    another two 40's as backups

    a 6GB HD that i had sitting around

    GTXP soundcard that sucks monkey balls, although it looks great on paper.

    2 CD burners. best one is 24x12x40. works perfectly with clone CD. one of three that has the best attributes for copying cd's.

    dvd player

    zip drive (floppy as well)

    GeForce 2 on the main monitor

    2 old vintage video cards for the other monitors

    two power supplies (i hacked this thing together nicely) a 200W and a 350W

    i think that's it.

    it's also running off a wireless network i share with my family in the house and my neighbor next door.

    this box is about as ugly as you can find.
