    FS - Vintage Macintosh Plus w/1 MB RAM and Mac team signatures on inside

    I have two Macintosh Pluses for sale. One is in good condition and starts up fine. The other does not start up (there's a little click when you try to turn it on).

    FS: Two iPod 1G/2G internal batteries (not necessary to purchase both)

    I've got two iPod batteries for sale -- both will only fit the 1G or 2G iPods. One is completely brand new that was bought as a replacement for my dead iPod. The other was the original battery in my dead 5 GB iPod that still got about 5 hours of charge before my iPod died. Since I have no...

    WTB: Working iPod 1G or 2G

    My iPod 5 GB (1G) recently died on me, and so I'm looking to buy a 1st gen or 2nd gen iPod. I'd actually prefer a 1st gen iPod with the real scroll wheel (i.e.: not the touch wheel). Hard drive size is of no importance -- 5 GB, 10 GB, 20 GB. If you do have a 3rd gen iPod you want to sell, I'd...

    Problem with enabling/disabling root user

    Before anyone says anything, yes, I am entirely aware of the risks of enabling the root user, and that's why I intended to disable it after I was finished working with it. (Unfortunately, the only easy way to set the keyboard layout of the login window is to enable root user, change the...

    Reviving a dead iPod

    So the other day when I connected my iPod to my iMac, the thing stalled on the Apple logo screen and wouldn't get any farther. After that, even when I reset the iPod, it would either give a low battery signal, or it would simply stall at the Apple logo. I figured it might be a battery problem...

    For all of you who switched to Hotmail after steaming over .Mac I dunno about you, but I'd rather have .Mac for $4.17 a month than a crappy web e-mail interface that deletes your messages once they are 30 days old. :rolleyes:

    Communicating between perl and FORTRAN.

    Does anybody know of a way to transfer data between a perl program and a FORTRAN program? I have a FORTRAN subroutine that I want to call from a perl program, but I don't know exactly HOW to do that. The FORTRAN program is on a VMS machine (old, yes I know :p ). Any help would be...

    The Question-Question Thread

    This thread is supposed to mimick the Question-Answer thread that died a while ago. Basically, I'm going to start out with a question, and every subsequent poster has to respond to the previous question with another question. For example, if I post the question "Who is the most insane...
