Do you need old system software disks to boot your vintage Mac?

It's fun to look back at old Apple emails. Check them out.

I'm a total Apple addict, as you might tell.

QuickTake 200 Viewfinder - At Long Last!

I can’t believe it’s been 2 years since I purchased my QuickTake 200 camera. I got it at a great price considering it was almost complete in the box. The only things it was missing was the CD and the optical viewfinder clip-on attachment. I’ve seen some of the CDs come and go on eBay in the $15 range. If I saw one for $5 to $10 bucks I’d probably just get it to complete the set. No big deal. The CD I can live without.

What I really wanted to find was the viewfinder attachment. It’s pretty hard to find a QuickTake at a good price that still has one attached. It’s even harder to find one by itself. If you found one loose in a drawer somewhere, you’d sooner throw it out not remembering what it went to. Even if you remembered that it went to a camera that you tossed years ago, wouldn’t you just toss the viewfinder too? Still, it’s cool that someone would go to all the trouble of posting such a small little piece of plastic in the hopes that someone needed one for their 15+ year old camera. Like me.

Granted, they got $14 bucks for it. So I guess it was worth it!

It’s in really nice shape. Not a scratch.

It just clips right on.

It sort of looks like an afterthought. You’d think that they would have made the front clip a little more form-fitting over the Apple logo. Maybe they should have put an Apple logo on the clip too.

In any case, it nice to finally see the camera complete with the attachment.
