MacTracker indicates that the iMac (Early 2001) and the iMac (Summer 2001) both pull a maximum of 150 watts. These two models were the last two iMac beasts of the G3 ilk and had a 600 MHz processor as an option.
MacTracker <http://mactracker.ca/> is a great little application that covers all the Macintosh models to date and includes information on configurations, graphics, software, connections and expansion, and history.
anticipating a move across the Atlantic in the near future, I decided
to start selling a large part of my collection. I'm still adding
things on occasion, but I would guess that mostly the books might be
of interest to folks here.
I've put the list(s) up here:
I would of course prefer is someone local can grab the stuff, but I am
willing to mail things.

I'm working with an old data sample (ca. 1979) to a piece of
equipment that I do not have access to. I've identified some bits
and pieces of code and am trying to identify the processor.
Here's what I know. The processor is big-endian and appears to be
byte-addressable. The opcode for CALL appears to be D3 xx xx, where
xxxx is the address of the destination. 2C appears to be load
immediate instruction and is also 3 bytes long.
The code doesn't look tight enough to be a p-code implementation of
Does this ring any bells to anyone?
You can indeed open up the Model I bricks and repair them. A frequent failure mode is a fuse inside the case that blows out. My friend had one blow out, and he cracked it open, drilled a hole for a fuse holder and replaced the fuse.
It's a pretty simple power supply to build a replacement for. There's a schematic on the Yahoo! TRS-80 group files section for an Australian 240v version which could be adapted to make a 110v version.
The service manual is out there (Tandy and SAMS) which should have schematic as well.

Not entirely true. In my case (Mac OS X.4 on a PowerPC laptop),
OpenOffice actually does a better job opening new .docx files than
MicroSoft's own OpenXML converter and Word X (as in, doesn't crash).
That still may not help you out, Tony. I think OpenOffice has
reasonably steep platform requirements too, but at least it is open
source and does a reasonable job untangling Word's formats.

Love it! Using it to write this. I'm somewhat worried about
consequently falling into the "asshole" category, but not enough so

Just read this article from "bunnie". It gives a, to me, appealing

I hope at least some of what he says is true, although it might preclude
the singularity, which sounds fun :)
