Sorry I have to get in on the action.

I started with a 5200CD

Considered a PowerPC, and I am sure a number of people are still using them.

This is the Clubhouse for you!

Heart - The G3, G4 and G5s are all considered PowerPC processors. [img]tongue.gif[/img] Or are you refering to the 601 series of PowerPC processors?

Me too! My first Mac was a 5200, I still have it as a hybrid: 5200 with 5400 Mobo. Pink screens occasionally and a very loud fan.

6100

My first Mac was a PPC 6100/66AV. It still works. I keep it around for Fontographer only. That works pretty sweet with two monitors! The ONLY problem with that is transferring files to a new mac. It HAS to be over a network connection. Not Floppy, Syquest, Zip drive, CD, wireless usb device... ethernet is my only common denominator.

Is there an adb to usb adapter I wonder?!? SCSI to usb? Parallel to USB?

Hmm it is possible to burn files and such to a CD. Keep an eye on your local second hand store like a Goodwill. The one out by us just had a few SCSI Yamaha CD burners in SCSI cases for $5-$10 the expensive one was still in a box with all it's cables.

I picked up a USB Zip drive with power supply that works fine on my G5 for $5 the other day. The SCSI Jaz drive I have that was being tossed out at work has a SCSI to USB adaptor though this is not the Centronics 50 or DB25 but the UW version (think that is what it was called or it might have been SCSI II).

At home I started on an LC with 12" colour monitor and Stylewriter which was 'on sale' new for $2500 at the time. When I outgrew it, it became a BBS for several years until it was replaced by a IIsi and hurdler card.

I still have all this stuff.......

Just the opposite actually. The Mac has a parallel port. so I need parallel to female USB. I don't see how such a thing could exist. The USB end needs 3 to 5 volts of power or most USB gadgets won't work.
