Hardware: PowerMac 7100

Power Macintosh 7100/66AV
From: Allory Deiss (allory@UWYO.EDU)
Power Mac 7100/66 Code Name: Carl Sagan, BHA (Butt-head Astronomer), LAW (Lawyers Are Wimps) See "
Apple Tidbits" for a story on these code namesÖ

If you own a 7100/66AV you may wish to try this egg. Hold down Command, Option, Shift, E, R, and 2 at startup. The screen may go black for about 20 seconds and then four snapshots appear, presumably of somebody's family and dog. This is only known to work on the 7100/66AV.

 

7100/80 Birth Date
From: Mike Herskovic (gevalt@humboldt1.com)
From: Paul Detzler (homerq@freespace.net)

While Gettting Info. on his hard drive, Mike, a PowerMac 7100/80 user, ran across something quite odd. The drive's creation date was listed as "Mon, Aug 27, 1956, 8:56 PM". That day is the birth date of Ray Montagne, the Apple engineer and programmer who has been designing and looking after the CUDA microcontroller (the chip that controls PRAM on certain Macs).
