Apple Macintosh IIci. Currently has 8mb ram (I'm going to max it out), Supermac Thunder GX II video, Asante 10mbit NIC, a Daystar Turbo 601 100mhz PPC accelerator, and a Radius Rocket Stage II 40mhz card with 8mb of ram Smile

Running system 7.6 on the Mac, and system 7.1 on the Rocket.

Here is a screen shot -

It's aimed at Pentium, but I figured I'd let everyone see it.

Gee, what a waste. You know, I'm quite sure I would make good use of that rocket. Don't make me track you down and kill you for it and the other stuff you keep taunting me with. Cool

Oh dear, so that's what those cards were in the Quadras we sent to the recyclers a few years ago.... Sad

Will it work on an 030 cpu board?

I imagine that it will probably work on any Mac that can run the host software and has NUBUS sockets. but I'm not sure. I know it has issues if you try using any OS revision later than 7.6...

You recycled rocket cards? D: They are kinda hard to find.

Yeah they were in some 950's that went out, I looked in them and pulled all the 16mb simms and took the memory off the cards but it didn't twig that these were cpu's and not Radius video cards......

I kept a 950 for my collection so will have to see if I got lucky, I did save a bunch of boxes of nubus cards though if I recall they were Thunder 24's as that's what we used in the Quadras and I seem to recall a floppy with Rocket Share SW somewhere so will have to see if I kept a boxed card.

Also have several brand new Hurdler cards with sw and modem cables and a couple of weird nubus cards called Crossfield Mac which have DSP's on them and serial ports. These were used for our Crossfield news photo receiver.

Jenne got my only other brand new boxed PPC upgrade kit, hmm btw where's my Jaz disk?

We're in the process of consolidation at work so a bunch more stuff is being tossed. Nothing special so far other than some G4 MMD's and Apple 20" monitor kits.

Ditto here.

EDIT: You live in Canada too. How the hell did you somehow manage to not see my constant flaunting here for my search for a Quadra 950?

*facepalm*

Only been on here since October.... if it was before that that would be why.

You want to pay shipping for one they weigh a ton $50+ via Canada Post wouldn't surprise me. Then finding a box and packing they won't destroy. Probably better crated....

IF you're serious I'll look in our server room there was a partly stripped Workgroup Server 95 holding a door open not long ago though it might have gone with the skidloads of G3 and G4 Macs, Sun Stations, G4 Xservers and Dells......

Oops, sorry about that. I didn't check to see when you registered. Embarassed

$50? to BC that's not half bad. I had a 20" SGI monitor cost more to ship from Guelph to here.

Um, if the 95 does have all the appropriate skin panels/bezels, Yeah, I'll gladly take that off your hands. Ram, hard drives, and NuBus cards are pretty replaceable if that's what got stripped. It sure is no Quadra 950 but it at least more commonly had a cd drive in it.

EDIT: Actually, scratch that. I just realized that I currently have severe space constraints because I'm moving.

No worries. I know it won't have the CD bezel or drive or good side panel or memory or drive or.... Rolling Eyes

Someone gave me an SGI 20" Trinitron, those things are probably twice as heavy. Man that must have been expensive, plus getting it through undamaged.

That's a nice computer Helf. I like how mac owners could get long life spans out of their machines with accelerators.

Ok so I did a bit of snooping around. Turns out that there is one ok 900 that was forgotten in the shuffle but shipping should be big $$ so if anyone is here in Toronto and would like it free PM me. It isn't pretty btw and like most 900's the tabs that hold the side cover on are fubar.

Helf I found something you might want for your IIci.....

A Crosfield DSP-Mac card. These were used with our Crosfield scanners for transmitting pages to our presses. I don't remember a lot about these things as I was still on the photo side at the time but I have this on my desk and it is a nubus card with 1 ADB and mini din serial ports. It has a Motorola DSP56001FE27 chip. Yours if you want it, though no idea what you would use it for! Shocked
