"Clearout time. Is anyone interested in some 7220s? They don't boot up due to dead batteries. They take 4.5v batteries, not the 3.6v kind."

PowerMac 8600/9600

Quite simply, the best of Apples Darkest Era. The best of the non OS X Macs.

Black & White Mac stuff for kids

Kids Domain Black & White Mac Freeware & Shareware appears to have a good collection of stuff, and they have it sorted by age. Very nice!
I haven't tried downloading from those links.

Retro OS 9 Nostalgia

OS 9 Memories over at MacLife.

You must read all the comments to get the full effect.

I am surprised at the lack of knowledge about various utilities that provided the missing functions.

Rob of Macosxhints did a great article when OS X first came out. I guess a lot of people like to complain but don't go searching the web to find software to fill their needs.

I don't know a lot about the game MacMan other than the fact that the version I have is called "MacMan Classic 2.0" and it was written by John Butler and released as shareware. You can download it from the classic software section of Jagshouse. The game will run on a Mac Plus up, though the sound effects don't work on the Plus.

I do have a Wikipedia account but I don't do a lot of editing to be honest. Please be my guest and make a mention of MacMan amongst the PacMan clones, as it is definitely one of the better versions for early Macs.
