Personality Card?
Can someone please define for me what a Personality Card is? As in the Beige G3 233 comes with the Whisper personality card. Sorry for asking a dumb question amongst such distinguished company, but...

No stupid questions, just smart-assed answers. :)

The personality card was an audio/visual card that was installed in some of the Beige G3s. It allowed you to connect any device that used RCA jacks into your mac. You could use it to import video from a camera or VCR or record music from a turntable or tape deck. It was a nice accessory (although DV and Firewire made it obsolete for video) to have.

There were 2 different personality cards offered in the beige G3s. Whisper was one, and I don't remember the name for the other. One only had speaker and mic jacks (I think this was Whisper). The other had speaker, mic, RCA auidio i/o, RCA video i/o and S-Video i/o.

The personality card with the extra features was called Wings.
