Re: Jury/jerry rigging.

2013-02-17 Thread Bill Connelly
Someone else believes thusly:

JURY rigged is sailing term, as in Mast. rigging the mast or sails. Jerry 
rigged is a Slap at German's at the end of WWII, Nazi's to be exact...when they 
started to run otu of supplies and needed to fix thangs! Thus Jerry rigged, 
meaning put together crumily..

I also agree its best not to use the N-word even when explaining racist 
references.

Re: Jury/jerry rigging.

2013-02-17 Thread Bill Connelly
You know, not all of my responses are getting through to the G3-G5 list ...

And my post to Mac Pro aren't getting up on the Mac Pro board ... having been 
scolded for trying to publish them here ...

I believe my posts have been banned by the Nannie, or at least have to be 
reviewed first ...

So why is all this rigging stuff going through, when it has nothing to do with 
computers, much less G3-G4 or G5s?

Guess this list needs less jerry-rigging ...

process seems broken.

 Here's the Wikipaedia definition of both terms.
Jury rigging refers to makeshift repairs or temporary contrivances, 
 made with only the tools and materials that happen to be on hand. 
 Originally a nautical term, on sailing ships a jury rig is a replacement 
 mast and yards improvised in case of damage or loss of the original mast. 
 When more permanence is meant by the term, such a build may be referred to 
 as jerry rigged.

 I'm not sure I see the logic of these? I never heard the nautical reference

 I thought jury rigged was like a court jury that was rigged for an 
 acquittal of the defendant. This is something risky because it's illegal and 
 if it goes wrong it blows up in your face. 
 
 Well, Random House agrees with the nautical derivation of the 
 term:http://www.randomhouse.com/wotd/index.pperl?date=19960711
 
 Jerry-rigged seems to be a mashup of 'Jerry-built' an English slang-term from 
 the late 1800's meaning 'of shoddy construction' and jury-rig.

 Tnx, Kris.  That's what I was beginning to think.  Seems a little odd given 
 the internal ATA drive(s) boot setup. So I need to look for a SCSI interface 
 external drive.  What version of SCSI would work on the beige G3 built-in 
 port-only v1?  Does it matter what type of drive interface is on the inside 
 of the SCSI external enclosure?  In other words if I could find an ATA or 
 eSATA drive that worked in a SCSI enclosure, do you have any idea if that 
 would work?  
 
 My particular need is to have a backup drive to native boot into OS 9 to 
 continue using some critical apps that were dropped by the vendor when OS X 
 came about.  Classic on my Mac minis Tiger doesn't fully work for one of the 
 apps, after MUCH experimenting.
 

Even though the OP says Backup Drive, I think he could also use an internal 
partitioned drive that has Classic OS 9.1 on one partition for his purpose, 
then use option key on Startup.

I don't think he means a drive that he can use as a external backup for his 
OSs, Apps or Docs.

I would buy a larger internal ATA drive, making sure not to exceed the size for 
a beige if there is such a limitation. Replace the 6GB one. They are cheaper 
and larger capacities than SCSI.

Then partition it into 2+ partitions, one dedicated to OS 9.

All was sent back including the display that was in the ebay deal ... the

Specs on a Borderline 23 Apple Cinema DIsplay HD

2013-01-22 Thread Bill Connelly
Can anyone tell me more (tonight hopefully), about this 23 Apple Cinema 
Display HD?
Identifiers: Aluminum - M9178LL/A - A1082

In particular, is it from the later made models that had 700:1 contrast ratio, 
as opposed to the early ones that had 400:1?

Here are some research sites:

This site: http://www.chipmunk.nl/klantenservice/applemodel.html/ with Serial 
number: 2A6311H8UG0 shows it was made in August 2006, Production Week 31.

This other site states Apple changed the specs on August 7, 2006: 
http://www.everymac.com/monitors/apple/studio_cinema/specs/apple_cinema_display_23.html,
 from 400:1 to 700:1 for the 23 display.

Do you know if this particular display has this improved quality?

I have seen some Apple Support Group discussion on the subject, but could not 
draw a favorable conclusion.

One card is for the SCA (I believe it is called) Seagate scsi harddrive and one 
for my UMAX scsi scanner.

Under OS X Tiger 10.4:

Vendor ID  0x1000
Device ID   0x0020

Revision ID0x0001

I have some software I believe I used called Atto Configuration Tool. I am 
trying to upload it to my Dropbox, but something is keeping me from providing 
you with the link … a permissions problem here, since I have recently Migrated 
to a new computer.

Will get back to you on this.

Don't have any information about OS 9, but the SCSI cards might work fine under 
9 without any additional drivers or firmware updates.

All of this is just my best recollection / best guesses ... so, Beware ... and

Just got a nice deal on a Mac Pro 3,1 (Early 2008) 2 x 3.0MHz with  
Intel Xeon 5400 series (Harpertown) processors.


What type of testing might I run, to exercise the various parts? Is  
there an Apple Hardware Test or Service Diagnostics that I could get a  
hold of?


I have run Geekbench, and am trying to compare the details of the  
results with others on the benchmark site, but its a bit tedious  
hunting down the data for comparison (still working on it).


I am also getting a copy of Snow Leopard (currently running 10.5.8),  
and hope to compare some results there as well.


Basically want to know everything is working correctly.

Suggestions welcomed.

Maybe this would do it: remove the cpu cover, and carefully clean,  
Maybe remove the Heat SInk and attached cpus, and clean further.  
Remove the cpu card and clean there, reseating with fresh thermal  
paste and/or thermal pads. Check for Coolant Leaks. This is what I  
was asking for today, in addition to making sure all the electrical  
connections were secure.


I did blow out considerable dust when I first got it ... and cleaned  
a fair amount off the radiator to the right of the double-fans which  
are in front of the RAM slots. But I did not go deeper into the cpu  
area.


Perhaps a Certified Apple Technician, that knows about the Power Mac

At times it would run a while, but I noticed cpu temps were bad for
cpu A 84°C and cpu B 24°C. So I shut it down.


This is really bothering!

Can anyone see something that indicates a problem, besides the high  
temperatures?





One link suggested that the cpu might be misaligned, which would be
consistent with a hard knock?


How about you disassemble it and look for youself?

have a Service Tech

G5 Quad Core Shaken Up in Transport

2012-12-31 Thread Bill Connelly
Recently got a Power Mac G5 Quad Core 2.5, and the original Apple box  
had received a hard knock in shipment. One end was punched in (6 inch  
square area) , and even though the styrofoam inside was also broken in  
somewhat, there appeared to be no damage to the pristine case.


Unfortunately, the machine would not boot until I got a new battery  
(had been sitting in its box 6 weeks without connection to a power  
supply).


At times it would run a while, but I noticed cpu temps were bad for  
cpu A 84°C and cpu B 24°C. So I shut it down.


Then I was getting LED #1 and #7 staying on all the time.

One link suggested that the cpu might be misaligned, which would be  
consistent with a hard knock?

https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2541117?threadID=2541117

I re-installed the RAM and #7 went away, but I believe #6 came on  
eventually, possibly indicating cpu B was now misaligned.


On Wednesday, Jan 2, I am hoping that an Apple Tech can reseat the A  
and B cpus, and replace the cooling system and things will run  
normally. I want the tech to try this first. Is this reasonable, to  
ask, before replacing the motherboard?


How much are Quad Core 2.5 G5 motherboards going for now?

The Seller says, and I believe him, that it was running perfectly when  
it was boxed up 6 weeks ago.


Any comments welcomed. If Insured for Shipping, which it was,  
shouldn't this be covered by the Carrier?


Hopefully success stories, as I want to get this machine back in good  
working order. Its the Apple Enthusiast  in me.

Can I use an OS X 10.5 - G4 Installation on a G5?

2012-12-30 Thread Bill Connelly
Wondering if I can use the OS X 10.5.8 installation I have on a  
harddrive, that was created on a G4, in my PowerMac Quad Core G5?


Is the file system on a G5 different than a G4?

Can I simply CCC my OS X 10.5.8 G4 to my G5?

Could I just insert the SATA drive, also formatted on a G4, into the  
G5, and select it as the Startup disk?


Comments welcomed.

Yes. OS X, provided you don't try to use a version older than your  
hardware supports, is universal


Are there different versions of 10.5.8?

the G5, and select it as the Startup disk?




That would be easier than CCC-ing it.


Maybe I'm overthinking this before I try it, but ...

Are most SATA hard drives compatible with the G5 Quad Core?

For example, when you read earlier Specs about the G5, it says you can  
install up to a 500GB SATA drive. I'm guessing that was the largest  
one available at the time ... 1TB+ now should be ok?

Re: Apple --AHT images?

2012-12-30 Thread Bill Connelly
I just received my Quad G5, and the Seller was kind enough to include  
the grey Tiger Install DIsk which includes my AHT 2.5.2.


I'm going to look at the Black Retail OS X 10.5 DVD that I purchased  
a number of years ago, by Restart-ing holding down opt ... if it is  
on there, it should appear as a bootable partition, along with my OSs  
and the DVDs OS. It is invisible in the FInder.


ASD 2.6.3 has been located also.

Thanks guys!

Re: Can I use an OS X 10.5 - G4 Installation on a G5?

2012-12-30 Thread Bill Connelly

My Quad has a bit of a problem, to be resolved at the Mac Doctor ...

I believe that is why my installed G4 HD did not appear to work in my  
G5. It did show up on the Desktop, but having Startup issues caused it  
to not mount later.


Time will tell ... once the G5 is up and running, all should be fine.

Thanks for the clarification.

¡ Happy New Year !

It would be a good idea to hold the Shift key for a Safe Boot for the
first boot, this will ditch the G4 startup caches and rebuild them  
for

the G5 hardware. You can reboot normally after the Safe Boot and
things should be fine.


I never did that and it all worked fine… Went from a G4 to a G5 and  
back a

dozen times…

Just a thought…

How is it with AHT and ASD?

My *impression* is, that AHT is the part of diagnostics software  
that is meant

for the customer, and ASD is meant for people doing technical service…

True?

If it is true, and that is my second impression: ASD seems to be the  
same as

AHT, but with more features (like calibrating things).

True again?

If so, if these assumtions should be right, then all you need really  
is the

_better_ one: ASD.

With ASD you can do all the thing AHT can do… and more!


You're probably right.

Someone here Dropbox-ed me ASD 2.6.3 ...

Any idea if there is one for the Quicksilver 2002 Dual 1GHz? a Yikes!?  
and a Digital Audio Dual 533? Also would like to have ASD for those  
also. Goof=gles some and found some things named thus:



From this reference: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1393097

It looks like I could use ones labeled as:

MTP G4 (July 2000)
MTP G4 (2002)
and 2.1.5


Thanks for your help

My Power Mac Quad Core should arrive later today (Saturday 29th). So  
excited ...

Just google for it. That’s how I found it anyway.


Anyone have the AHT 2.5.2 for use with a Quad Core G5 2.5GHz?


I have original media for AHT 2.1.1 (Power Mac G5 Mid-2004 or so)  
and AHT

2.2.5 (Power Mac G5 Late-2005 i.e. Dual-Core incl. Quad).



2.5.2 is for Late 2005. Yours,  2.2.5 is Late 2004 (and so is 2.5.2)  
according to Mactracker.




Does anyone know how to seperate it?


Is AHT installed on your harddrive? Probably under Utilities?




Any news about the ASD diagnostic disks would be welcomed also.


And ASD 2.6.3 is the final version for the Late-2005 (including the  
Quad) G5s.


Any suggestions where to get this version of ASD?

Quad Core G5 Sales Inquiry Advice

2012-12-26 Thread Bill Connelly

A friend has offered to sell me his Quad Core G5 which he says is in
Mint  condition.

One problem he noticed was that in Sleep Mode, it would occasionally
turn on all its fans ... which he says was fixed when he runs a
program named SOX. More of a software issue than hardware.

I am concerned about the LCS ... except that it is a Late 2005 model.
He says he has cleaned the inside, making it free of dust ... and
noticed no fluids of any kind. Then, I asked him about the LCS, and he
didn't know it had one ... so I assume he has not looked at the cpu
area.

It's already packed for shipping ... so opening it back up was not an
option ... he says it is running just fine.

What would you do?

Is there anything in the OS X 10.5.8 system, that turns the L3 cache  
On / Off at Startup?


I had been using Sleep Mode fairly extensively ... now reminded by a

possibly other things.


Could this have messed up the use of L3 cache  on the QS 2002 Dual

http://archive.macfixitforums.com/ubbthreads.php/ubb/printthread/Board/11/main/93993/type/thread

Seems like a solution would be to try and replace the Dual 1GHz cpu  
daughter card.


I'm also looking into upgrading my computer to a G5 ... and try to fix  
the QS at a later date ...


Anyone know how to repair / replace an L3 cache on a QS 2002 Dual 1GHz  
cpu card?

Have you checked the fan that cools the heat sink. I ran my QS with  
the side door open and discovered the heat sink cooling fan was bad.  
I ordered a new fan and while waiting for it ran the computer with a  
small electric fan directed at the heat sink cooling fins. New fan  
cost about $15.00.

FWIW


I looked at the cpu fan from outside, and it was running. Also felt a  
little air coming from it.


That wouldn't make the L3 cache appear / disappear from the Hardware

No, it would not.

But, the L3 cache chips were somewhat notorious for failing for no
apparent reason.


I believe I read somewhere, someone thought an overheating cpu caused  
the L3 cache to become loose from the daughter card, and that heating  
it up locally would put it back.


Paraphrasing.

If I find the reference, I will convey it here.

A friend suggested I upgrade to a G5 tower, after my G4 QS 2002's cpu  
went bad ...


I'm doing mostly involved photography processing in the HDR area  
now ... so speed is a good thing.


All my applications are 32bit style coding ... will I run into any  
problems with G5s in general?


What about the cooling systems ... didn't some of them have problems  
with the liquid cooling idea?


I have a number of PCI cards that are still good ... what ideas do you  
have here? I may just wait for a QS Dual 1GHz cpu to appear, and  
consider going with an MDD for increase in speed in the future.


Suggestions on which ones in the G5 family (and others) to consider  
are welcomed. Not too fat in the wallet ...

Late ... Breaking News ...

According to another AHT run tonight, a Startup Error was reported:

POST / 16 / 64

A google search produced a discussion, which one contributor says it  
possibly means some of the cpu cache is bad.


This would explain the kernal panics, and shut downs at Startup, and  
flaky behavior when trying to use OS X.


OS 9 appears to be ok with bad cache, hence AHT 1.24 and 1.26 would  
run off a CD.


Perhaps I need to by a new cpu card? a replacement Dual 1GHz would be  
nice.


fleabay?

My Quicksilver Dual 1GHz G4 has gone bizerk ...

2012-12-14 Thread Bill Connelly
Would someone be willing to look at my logs to see if they can tell me  
what has happened?


System / Hardware Configuration: OS X 10.5.8, SATA drive off an SATA  
PCI card, GeForce 4MX video, 1GB RAM, down from 1.5GB.


After moving my hard drive with system on it to my DA Dual 533, I  
saved my Apple System Profiler for the previous experiences on the QS  
2002, in an spx file.


Symptoms: kernal panics on startup, flaky behavior with freezing up of  
the Finder when it did run some.


Things I've tried:

After removing a suspected bad RAM stick, eventually same behavior  
returned.


After applejack cleansing, same or worse ... Immediate shutdown after  
startup, kernal panics


I tried removing everything and cleaning all contacts, replacing them  
and same behavior occurred. Pressing CUDA, and doing opt-cmd-P-R.


Is my cpu bad? Overheating for some reason? Will the system.log tell  
us what was going on? I cannot seem to find things there.


Any help welcomed.

Bravia from time to time). Another ATI Radeon 9800Pro is probably too  
much of a card for what I will be using it for ... I'm not a gamer.

Re: 10.4 or 10.5 for a G4

2011-12-24 Thread Bill Connelly

I have a partition for each OS: X 10.5.8, 10.4.11 and 9.2.2.

Depending on the jobs at hand, I can boot into any partition, except I  
use 9.2.2 for Classic mode.


As it turns out, I don't use Tiger and Classic much anymore. I can  
stand the 10-15% hit in speed IIRC from my tests with Xbench. Leopard  
is noticeably slower than Tiger, on my DA Dual 533 and QS 2002 Dual  
1GHz. I imagine you will see it more so on the 350.


CCC would be one way to get any of them onto the 350, given each on  
another machine.


If you can stand the limitations on software availability, I would  
stick with Tiger, but have the other partitions available.

iSight FW webcam and External FW Harddrive

2011-12-18 Thread Bill Connelly
Has anyone experienced interference between an iSight FW webcam, and  
an external FW harddrive?


I was using CCC and it would not backup my internal drive, to my  
external one, hanging mercilessly until I tried unplugging the iSight  
webcam ... and then things went back to normal. I was not using the  
webcam during the CCC operation, but it was connected.


Or do I have a FW problem with my Quicksilver 2002 Dual 1GHz?

My external drive is a Newertech ministack v2.5.

Internal and external drives are SATA ones, with the internal one  
coming off a Seritech PCI SATA card.


Any experience here? (I submitted this to CCC folks, but they didn't  
have any definite answer ... said it was a possibility, but with the  
iSIght being so old, no one around them had any direct experience).


Thanks

it is factored into the benchmark.

G4 Server Idea

2011-11-13 Thread Bill Connelly

Could I use one of my Macs, as a Server through my DSL connection?

I am considering what to do since Verizon dropped the ability to use  
ftp with my artsite, through Adobe Golive. I could buy space on  
something like GoDaddy.com, but I don't care for the idea of another  
internet bill. Paying $24 a month for my ISP is enough. Since Verizon  
dropped ftp, I am still frustrated about it.


What would I need to set up one of my machines as such? Is it  
practical, considering: then, I would need to leave it running 24/7?

Which G5 or older Mac

2011-11-09 Thread Bill Connelly
Some day soon, I'd like to upgrade to a faster cpu Mac, from my  
current 10.5.8 based models: a QS 2002 Dual 1GHz and a Digital Audio  
Dual 533. A Dual 2 GHz sounds really nice ...


I run many older apps such as Photoshop CS, InDesign CS, Adobe  
Golive CS, Sibelius 3 and Ableton's Live 6 plus many other PPC based  
applications, and have hesitated from upgrading because I thought I  
would need all new software for the Intel-based-ness of the newer,  
faster Macs.


Am I wrong? Which Macs can I get, and still run all my software that I  
currently run on my PPC G4s under Leopard 10.5.8?


Thanks

Re: MDD IDE vs. SCSI, battle of the busses?

2011-10-31 Thread Bill Connelly

The only other place you can put hard drives in this machine is at  
the back in another two drive carrier adjacent to the ATA100 header

for a longer IDE cable and see if I an route it up to the front to  
put two drives in that front carrier onto the ATA100 bus and just  
not use the second header on the ATA66 bus.  Maybe things will work  
better then. Still, what happened is pretty mysterious, don't you  
think?




Doesn't Apple treat IDE channel drives, as if they were SCSI in some  
sense? I thought they did for a while ... maybe this might explain the  
mystery or SCSI voodoo, as it is called ... and, then again, maybe not.


I would leave the hard drive off of the ATA66 bus, and leave that for  
the DVD drive only. Just my feeling.

I kept getting kernal panics on my Digital Audio Dual 533 under 10.5.8  
after a first attempt with a fresh download of the file from their site.


After doing a Safe Boot, and a Reboot, yet another kernal panic.

I finally decided to try the opt-cmd-P-R, and all seems to be well ...

Any comments about this c. 2006 mouse driver by Kensington?
When did OS X 10.5 come out, anyway?

and 9 drivers and apps for safe keeping myself. I have a SCSI Yikes!  
Mac that I constructed for my scsi UMAX 2400S Scanner and other  
scanners. It has a couple of scsi PCI cards in it ... seem to work OK  
as is without drivers under 10.4.11 ... can't remember what adaptec  
cards they are now, as I'm typing. Thx, Kris, for the link just the  
same.

Re: CPU upgrade options for Power Mac G4 DA

2011-05-16 Thread Bill Connelly

I have a Power Mac G4 Digital Audio that I'm looking to upgrade for a
friend. It is the 466 MHz model, running OS X 10.4.11.

Which brings me to my question: what are some good compatible  
upgrades for

DA Power Macs?




I bought a DA online that someone had put a Dual 533MHz cpu from  
another DA. I feel very fortunate to have it ... it was the first G4 I  
had really wanted to buy when it first came out, but couldnt afford  
the price at that time. I think I paid around $100 including Shipping  
for this one ... feel like it was a steal.


What happens to the monetary value of such wondering machines?

Thanks,

you've been focused on memory ... could it be something else, like a  
faulty USB device attached?


There's also applejack and its use of memtest for testing memory.

Greetings

Can we assume that this configuration did work and that it has failed
recently or is this something that has been added?
If the drive did work and has recently failed, what has changed or
been changed in your platform?
Have you tried plugging the drive directly into one of the internal
Disk Drive slots?



... or reseating and/or replacing the ATA/IDE cable from the computer  
to the drive. Just sounds like a drive that's at the end of its  
life. : (

People here in South Jersey still leave their doors and cars

right.


sigh...  To make it easier to service FiOS installations, Verizon  
has been installing the ONT (Optical Network Terminal) on the  
*OUTSIDE* of homes.  Pop the door's locking screw, open its hatch,  
and you immediately have free access to that home's cat5, coax, and

I lived in Washington DC for 15 years (79-95), and that is where I  
learned to lock my doors (not a current administration political  
statement) ... always. I still do it here back in my smallish  
hometown ... we have gang activity.


Just changed my WEP Code, (and use MAC Authentication) because here in  
the Buckle of the Bible Belt, we have the child porn issue. The  
religiosity seems to attract them, among other things. Celebrity's  
work with the Feds to catch folks, too ... although I cannot remember  
who that is at present ...


Thanks for the article ... and I love the ROFLMAO ... you used it  
b4, and I like it as much now as then ... although it does imply a  
rather personal body part ... maybe I should change my codes again to  
throw off the Feds  ...

I think you read his posting wrong. Here is what he wrote:

This computer works great, except for other than a power-off, BOTH  
the

fans (internal and power supply) will not shut down.


The key words are other than power-off, which means both fans DO  
shutdown during power-off. These old G3's don't have variable fan  
speed, so his Mac is operating normally.


Thanks and my apologies ... guess I got caught off guard with what  
seems to be double negative like techies ...


either that, or maybe I need to blow the dust out of my head a bit ...
