Quick HeadShot

Here is the latest addition to the Mac idiots collection. A power Mac with Xeon 2.8GHz and 4 cores. I intend this to be my daily machine and powerful enough to encode 4k video. I have already installed macOS high Sierra on it using the tools here: http://dosdude1.com/highsierra/

Colour Classic

Big thank you to mac memories for these rare 30 pin simms. I have now maxed out the colour classic to a whopping 10 megabytes of ram but it will now run open transport meaning when the ethernet cards arrive I can run an IPstack. Installation was simple – remove the trap door and pull out the logic board. Insert RAM and replace.
