Hi Gregg [I'll try to get the quoting corrected in this post].

Lucky you :) That's a good score. I had a real Plus for a while but also
had a hand in it's demise :(

In vMac PPC's favor, 4 display settings: 512 x 342, 640 x 480, 800 x
600, + full screen. From there on it's underwhelming, no networking, no
 CD AFAIK, no [physical] floppy drive AFAIK... The real thing is much
nicer. Should be good for the Scarab of Ra tho :)

This is where I think I killed my Plus, I installed 9 chip 1 Mb SIMMs
pulled from a PC... the result was not good. My fault. blew the analog
board. Good luck with yours and tread lightly while you go.

Now a working Q650 I do own. It currently has an Apple PPC 601 PDS card
installed. The 650's ROM file lives on in my P4, and I run it under
Basilisk II, at a speed somewhat faster than the original 650 :) I
prefer using SSW 7.1.1 [Pro] on this. Not much in the way of B2
development happening these days it seems, though Gwenole Beauchesne
announced an update to the JIT compile a week or so back [Linux only].
