Right, so I kind of started a vintage Mac enthusiast/hobbyist site. Biggest feature is a wiki where anyone can document mod projects, manual software/driver patching, software worth using in various classic Mac OS environments, etc. etc.

So, you know, if you want to join, please feel free. And yes, I realize that as of this posting it's just me. Ahem.

P.S. checked with reader50 before posting, so plz don't infract me for this. D:

Thanks!! I think I want the focus to be on the hardware - repairs, upgrades, mods, and what you can do to make a 20-year-old machine relevant with today's technology. Although some stuff just won't work on an old Mac (anything with video, lol), there's still a lot of fun stuff you can do.

Any love for the clones on your site? My PowerCenter150 is still a great OS8 Mac.

Heck yes. I don't know a whole lot about clone history - were there PPC clones or just 68k? I can add a forum category for clone hardware.

Power PC. These are the specs for mine. Mine's a low-profile case, not the big chunky desktop pictured.

That's right - the clones were the early PPC models that ran System 7. Category added.

Also added a feedback forum for other suggestiony stuff.
