Your profile says you have a Plus, but you're not certain. If it is a Plus it usually has that stamped on the front. Even without Plus written on it, it is possible it is an older Mac that was upgraded to a Plus I guess.
Yeah, I found some decent deals on Ebay, and from a gut locally who sold his entire collection to me for $35 (that included 6 working computers and lots of peripherals). I haven't gotten a "new" Mac since last spring, and I've had some of them die on me, and sold a few others, but still have most of them.
Thank you for the very kind comment. I hope I did the group justice. I think we all feel about our Macs the same way, and keep them useful as much as possible.
I see you have a Newton, do you use it? If so, what system do you run it on?
I've never tried to use a Newton with a machine older than a Performa. I did see a website someone here has, and he has his Newton connected to his SE. And, his SE connected to his home network. If I can remember who it is, I'll send you his name and you can connect. If, you haven't already found him that is.
Here is the link about the networked SE, and the Newton. The members name is James Wages and he has a blog on the 'Blogs' page called the "The SE that does it all." Also this is the link to an interview he did about his Network.
I hope this helps, please let me know how it goes.
I would LOVE a copy of Shufflepuck Cafe. I remember where I played that game. It was on the first Mac I ever had, the one that stayed with my Ex. I miss that machine. But, I do have an SE that I'm going to get booted up using Pam's Zip method. I'm so excited to get to play that game again! Thanks so much!
I just read your post about Shufflepuck Cafe and went to:
It looks great! I'm going to download a copy and I think my nephew and I will have a lot of fun with this one! Thanks so much Claes for reminding us about this game.
And Kathy, that bootable Zip drive method was given to me by James and John - so I can't take credit for anything other than writing it up and sharing it with the community!
You really should try ResEdit too, as Damian must have done. I made the Finder for 7.5 'polite' - "Do you really want to...[empty the Paperbasket]". You should have an external drive to start the concerning machine up with and always remember to keep a copy of the original file. Take a litte application (like 'UltraDice') and make a Swedish version for your own pleasure, search for the 'STR'-resources and GO !
