This article is about building a working and usable PC in a 20y/o Mac Classic Case…
The original mac of 84 was such a joy, it was so nice, small, cute and easy to use. It was an instant hit for me that I fell in love in first sight.
Then later I continued growing up and went to a technical Lycee’s computer department. The school was tough but working on computers, learning about them was worth it.
I was lucky enough to be among the few who unpacked the very first mac classic imported to my country during my student apprenticeship in high school around 90 – 92. The first difference from the original mac was the machine coming to life with the sound of a fan. I worked on the machine for some weeks during the apprenticeship. I liked it so much that it visited my youth dreams of all my teenage years several times.
Then years passed. Now I’m a professor in a fine arts university in Istanbul / Turkey and my lectures are all around technical stuff, electromechanics etc. trying to give some engineering understanding to industrial design students. I have also got some free time to make stuff, so i visit instructables frequently.
In one of that visits, I’ve searched for mac projects and saw gmjhowe’s project about upgrading a 84 macintosh to run OS X Snow Leopard and liked it a lot. The same thing was in my mind for maybe 10 years but I hadn’t seen anyone doing a similar thing. The project inspired me enough to start my own Mac. Though I liked mac classic more than the 84 Mac, I’ve planned to use a classic case.
After a search that lasted 3 months, I’ve found my classic in a local ebay 😀 for 30$ and converted it into Mawi, the MAcintosh that runs WIndows XP. If you want to build something similar, than this instructables might be helpful for you. Continue reading.
Naval warfare has seen numerous innovative and devastating weapons throughout history, each designed to gain a strategic advantage over the enemy. One such weapon, born out of desperation during World War II, was the Kaiten suicide submarine. With their primary purpose being to cause maximum destruction by sacrificing their own crew, these submarines represented a tragic chapter in naval warfare.
Origins and Development: The Kaiten suicide submarines were developed by the Imperial Japanese Navy towards the end of World War II. Facing a deteriorating military situation and in dire need of unconventional tactics, the Japanese sought ways to counter the overwhelming naval power of the Allied forces. Inspired by the successful deployment of human-guided torpedoes, known as the “kaiten” or “return to heaven,” the concept of the Kaiten submarine was born.

Exploring the Depths: Alvin Unveils the Mysteries of the Deep since 1964
The vast and mysterious depths of the ocean have captivated human imagination for centuries. With more than 70% of our planet covered in water, it’s no wonder that we’re drawn to uncover the secrets hidden beneath the waves.
Among the many tools that have enabled us to delve deeper into the ocean’s mysteries, the Alvin submersible stands out as a true pioneer of underwater exploration.
