Where great old Macs live again!

A slightly loony Canadian has managed to get his Apple //e hosting web pages to the internet using an ethernet card and the Contiki OS. It's actually running as a server and is delivering a page with a few links and some images. I'd have put the link in this earlier but I wanted to ensure that you guys knew that this machine is WOEFULLY unsuited for delivering content. The tiny image of the //e, is actually 1/3 of the entire memory space of the machine.

One really useful piece of info there is a list of "old apple servers" that he's putting together. Maybe you'll find something interesting

The link: (Please be gentle) http://www.ld8.org:6502

Warning: It could fall over at any time so if it doesn't work for you, try again later.

Yeah I saw that too. The //gs version ran well, haven't had any luck connecting to his //e as yet.

I'm very tempted to try it out on here, except for the lack of an Apple // ethernet card!

Looks like it's stopped responding this morning. I guess at 30 it's hard on old machines. Could just be busy, there's some of buzz about it on the newsgroup computer.software.apple2 (and if you don't know what newsgroups are, you're not old enough to be Retro)

Err - I remember using Gopher for files and Pine for email under A/UX.....

Now, I would not say Simon is Loony at all. He is even selling some Apple II music he developed on EBay.

TimeLord Apple II Rhythm Sequencer - Drum Module
Item number: 110229942229.

He is working on other things as well.
