Hi there, just a quick Hi there,  new to the group, and new to the computer.  I just recently got this computer, it's a tested and working Monochrome, non turbo and non ADB Next Station with a MegaPixel monochrome monitor. It came with 8megs of ram, and a 4.1 gig hard drive (I think).  

I have not turned it on yet as I am waiting for my 32meg upgrade and monochrome monitor cable.  ( The unit did not come with a monitor cable.) So instead of building my own, which I could have,  I decided the computer deserved a genuine next monitor cable.

Both Monitor cable and ram were perchased from Black Hole Inc.  and are on their way to me. :)  I wont upgrade the ram until i have had a chance to plug it all in and verify all is well.  :)

Just wanted to say Hi and introduce myself.   I live in the Greater Toronto Area in Canada. I enjoy vintage computer collecting, and I attend the VCF shows in the East and the MidWest. :)

Picture will come.  ( I posted some in the facebook group, i will put them here as well.)

i dont have the computer in front of me, but how do I remove the sims, when my 32meg sim upgrade arrives.   normally 30 pin sim is clipped in, but based on my pics, I dont see clips.... Kinda silly to ask without the machine in front of me, but how will i get the 1 meg sims out once my memory and monitor cable arrive. :)

Cheers. :)

the good news is they arrived, the bad news is MF'n canada post decided to tack on $21.00 to the order.  :)   When I get home tonight (had them delivered to my office) I will finally be able to fire up my Next Computer. :)

So I successfully repalced my ram, so now maxed out to 32 megs of ram.  That video was very helpful.   I was also, thanks to a few folks on the facebook group, was able to get my NeXT Station to boot and run properly from SCSI2SD interface. :)   She's running like a champ. :)

Cheers.
