Re: LM7805 3A

All external expansions run off the 9v expansion port supply, so external expansions do not load the internal 5v voltage regulator.

Re: Hardware detectives for FrankenQL?

Ahhh, good memories... not...

Installing SPEM memories in QLs while knowing how much slower they were. They had crappy pins covered in solder, and the sockets under the 8301 and CPU sucked too, so they were quite troublesome overall.

In a hackintosh, MacOS cant apply patches on non-Mac hardware. The patching happens from the EFI before the OS even boots, but the EFI on hackintoshes is 'repr...
