(I currently have 128Mb installed: 2x32 + 1x64, in the three available
I would like to achieve minimum 196Mb, preferably up to 384Mb
The specs of the RAm for the G3, as you would know, are:
SDRAM PC66 168pin DIM and further: 3.3V, low profile
2) I need a 4.5V "cube" battery (for the 6300 Performa)
Can anyone assist with either of these two items?
I have a unused 3.6V high energy litmium battery (measures 15mmx18mmx60mm
with red and black wire. The battery has a velcro strip (with protective
cover still attached).
I also have a variety of cards, including network and special purpose, and a
number of interesting, indeed possibly fascinating, mac items, all listed?
Furthermore I have a small qnnty of unopend B and color ink cartridges eg
for 2500 Stylewriter. I can make a list

Say what? Old computers fail. Period. In general, I really don't
see any one model as being longer or shorter lifed as the others,
from my experience. The only exception that is the iMac FP -- way
too many goose neck failures. And even that's not a serious failure.

Yea, what James said. What's this about?

The only shortcomings, IMO -- and none are showstoppers:
1) Max DIMM size is 256 MB. I keep ending up with cheap 512's.
2) No bezel to do an internal JAZ drive nicely. ZIP sux.
3) My ADB keyboard difficulties. See thread "Tiger ate my keyboard
and snacked on my mouse!" in the old g-list archives.
Go for it, James!
Just make sure it's rev 2. Less hassle.

Long filenames are like fleas - they accumulate. There are some in
OS X itself. Many apps use/create them. Then there are email
attachments, and other downloads...
Having a file server that only supports smaller filenames is a PITA.
Right now, I'm using an old PowerMac running OS 8 as the "house
server", afp, ftp, and http. It's good for most things. But more
and more we're having to zip files up before pushing them to it, so
they don't corrupt the names... Gonna replace that box with
something running OS X shortly.
