However, I picked apart the power supply in the IIfx and found a cold
solder joint on one of the fuses.  Works like a charm now! :)

I couldn't get the IIci's supply apart, so I can't tell if it's
suffering the same malady or now.  However, it -totally- rocks to have
the IIfx working.  That machine is a really nice piece of work, and it's
coming home with me in my suitcase even if I have to get SWMBO to mail
half of my clothes home parcel post.

Mmmm.. System 7.5.3 and Mathematica 2.2--how retro!
