    Nifty :) I picked up a couple later RS/6000s once upon a time, but I never got around to doing anything with them and ended up moving them on to a good home when I had to move.

    Shapeways is nice and straightforward for the manufacturing end of things, but you still need the shape file for the part. If it's not something someone has already created, then you'll either need...

    Very interesting. Had to replace ours earlier this year, but that was just cheap rubber disintegrating in the usual way.

    This, exactly. A good quick-overview tutorial is great for getting you started, but the best thing you can do once you have the basics down is start applying them to a practical problem. Nothing...

    Were there many CGA clones that still had issues with snow, or was that primarily an issue with the original IBM card? I don't know that I'd consider it worth the trouble, unless it's really...
