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. Smile I wont upgrade the ram until i have had a chance to plug it all in and verify all is well. Smile

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. Smile

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

here is a link to my NeXT Station Flickr feed: https://www.flickr.com/photos/66577016@N00/albums/72157690848632862


Cheers.

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. Smile

Cheers. Smile
