  1. Component Recording Video - The LVR-5000

    It's a wet dream for anyone who loves laserdisc that you could record your own discs with whatever you want. The sad fact is that it currently is and always was impossible. While this does not mean that single-run discs could be recorded and in the 80's if you had the money you could have custom discs made for you but the equipment required to do so was so large, heavy and expensive that very few companies could actually do this and according to google, none of this equipment still exists. All that ...

  2. You get what you pay for

    Right, about that TransNote.

    When I got it the battery sucked. Being the original battery it was in no mood to see life beyond five minutes.

  4. Epson Equity II Pt. 2

    Now comes the first major issue with this machine. In order to reach the motherboard you have to COMPLETELY dismantle the computer. There's almost a dozen screws and three or four parts of the frame, not to mention drives, cards, the power supply and some cables but once that's all pulled away you're treated to a rather densely populated board.

  5. IIfx Forever!

    My mission going into this project was to make the machine complete. Not perfect. Just complete. For a period of time I was literally looking at a pile of mac II era hardware for a reasonably good price, like it-all-cost-me-under-$100 good. This was the result of a lot of effort.

    Mac collectors like to cherish some of Apple's most memorable products, ...
