Loc: Stoughton, WI USA
I was driving around a couple days ago and noticed that there were quite a few signs for garage sales. I stopped by at one and picked up an aviator headset. Those things are typically very expensive, though for $5 I couldn't say no. As I was walking away I noticed that there was a PowerBook box. I took a look and it was mint. No scratches, vanity cover still had the vinyl cover over it, and everything was included. The owner took me inside, I plugged it in, and started without a problem.
I told him it was worth $20 to me. He accepted. I would have gone lower but I figured I should pay a little more since the headset was cheap.
Now comes the hard part.
I have formatted it, runs properly still, have all the CD's and floppies that came w/ it so I can start from scratch. Linux is what I really want to run.
If anyone has experience installing Linux on a NuBus PPC I could use some advise.
If anyone has suggestions for a mod, that isn't a picture frame, let me know. I'm open for ideas and may incorporate them into the machine.
