As if I needed yet another Firewire drive.  ::)

Simply could not pass up this retro-kewl era OWC FW 400 enclosure.
(The old style, winged OWC Mercury FW logo… was simply irresistible.)


Another forum member here (a secret) may be offering others, for sale here soon.

I am assuming you bought one from here (if not, that is an amazing coincidence)

Yes DH, I got mine from mustagcoupe about a week or so ago.
(One of the very first ones that he had cleaned and prepped.)
And I can personally vouch both for him and the enclosures.

I had wanted to post about it last week but he asked that I wait
until they were all ready… I didn’t know that he was posting today. ::)

He and I often share ideas & info back and forth about G3 B&Ws
as well as possible (other) mod-i-fi-ca-tions. Recently we’ve discussed
building “alternative” cases for some loose B&W mobos.

Some here might also be interested in his “Plywood G5 Build”.
https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/plywood-g5-build.2333413/

I’ve a couple of G5 Cheese Graters that were bounced around too
much & have always considered building different cases for them.
Lately, with a score of some white, eighth-inch thick Corian® here
(similar to plexiglas)… who knows where this all might eventually lead?

But yes, if anyone’s interested in the OWC Firewire retro enclosures…
do contact mustagcoupe ASAP. 8)

mine looked like the yellow one and was labelled icybox. if it wouldnt have that annoying 120 gb limit i would probably still use it. you can easily pile a dozen of them to a platci tower, it is a really good case.

In the spirit on going off-topic (pretty much every post, lol) I would just add...

This only makes sense, we are now going full circle :)

1) Make furniture out of G5 cases

2) Make G5s out of furiture

I bought an old USB Wacom tablet last year for my G4, size full A4 because I thought it would be nice to have a large one (I don't know a lot about them). Turns out, it's not. This smaller, almost-appropriately-coloured one has been up for sale locally for a bit and in the end I couldn't resist.

The Graphire are not just smaller, but also less capable when used in paint or CAD applications. They were made for a more casual sketch market.

DVI-A to VGA adapter from Best Buy for my G4.

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/best-buy-essentials-dvi-a-to-vga-adapter-black/6452973.p?skuId=6452973&intl=nosplash

The DVI-D to HDMI adapter I was using that had always worked fine started blanking out randomly. Another one I secured did the same. Found this adapter and it works perfectly. Fixed all my issues and freed up my monitor's HDMI input to be used by an HP Windows XP tower that had lain dormant in my setup for a while.
