Greetings!! Currently as i try to study for my final few exams I have been making a list of all the things i want to do over my Christmas holiday other then spend time with my Loved ones. Its time to clean some junk out and maybe resurrect some machines! A few Months ago i was given a pretty dirty Performa 5200CD. I cleaned it right up and since it came with no peripherals i borrowed the ADB keyboard and mouse form my Beige G3 desktop and fired it up. It booted right up to os 8.5 and for some odd reason the CD rom drive will open up and stay open. It wont close. I close it and it opens back up again. Anyways. Aside from some cracked plastic on the left speaker the machine seems fine. But is there really anything i can do with it? The only thing i really could think of was trying to see maybe if the monitor connection is simple enough for a first year University kid to hack into and convert the signal maybe to VGA. other then that maybe install OS 9 tinker around and give it away? any ideas? Sorry i have no pic of it. its at my parents place. Perhaps ill post one in about a week when i see it again.
