    Hi Everybody!

    Does anyone know if it is possible to convert the old ADB plugs that came on old-style G3's into anything else?

    My friend has one of the old G3's just sitting around, and there doesnt seem to be any way of getting the keyboards anymore. I know that you can get the mice from Macally, but there doesnt seem to be anybody importing the keyboard into the uk.

    I'm thinking that it should be possible to simply re-wire the ADB into serial ports.

    Any advice gratefully received.

    if I get it right? you want to use his ADB keyboard on something else? or you want a keyboard for that G3??

    if you want a keyboard for the beige G3 -> ADB Apple & don't mind useing belgian AZERTY: ask me: I still have one from an old Performa somewhere in my house

    if you want to convert the ADB to something else... hmmm I don't know how to fix that...
