Where great old Macs live again!

Expanding my collection, one mac at a time

I've gotten a Power Macintosh 8500 from a friend! It's the PowerPC 604e 180MHz, with all kinds of nice Video In plugs in the back. I've got the keyboard and mouse too, and connected it to an old CRT 17" display. The system is running Mac OS 9.1 and I've managed to install Office 2001, Photoshop 7, iTunes, Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri and Alpha + CMacTex 4.4 on it! So far it's running great. Can someone tell me what the <...> port on the back is for?

That's the AAUI port for network connectivity. You'll need a transceiver to connect this port to an ethernet network.
