    There's an movie file of the Quadra AV team over here: http://www.pitt.edu/~clh23/quadraeasteregg.html The movie file was found hidden on a System 7.1 disk.

    It show's a bunch of the team members with a pirate flag and what appears to be a prototype motherboard. Kinda cool!

    That's very cool! I love all the old MacOS-related easter eggs. I sure wish they'd make more today! Apple seems to have gotten too "serious" in that respect, IMO.

    Neat. Thats something I never would have found on my own. Why would you even think to look for it?

    Wow. I'm suprised this wasn't found earlier. 91mb quicktime and no one was suspicious? :confused:
    Cool vid.

    Certainly not the usually quality of a QuickTime movie. I couldn't really make out what was being said, quite garbled. :eek:

    I think that is probably due to this being 1. the first shipped mac that did video (I suspect the video was made on the quadra av) and 2. the compressions avaiable then weren't so good. Even the original file isn't too hot for 91 meg, as it is in Video compression.

    Maybe this is where the "all mac users are potheads" stereotype came from :rolleyes: ;) :D

    I have an 840AV in the closet. Now at last I have something useful to do with it - hunt for that movie!
