Oh.  Hey.  That is *awesome* - Macintosh Garden was one of the best resources for classic Mac software.

 

That's an excellent complement to their archive of ftp.apple.com, which sadly tops out in 2000.

Considering all Mac software is archived in .sit files, what is the best way to open them on a vintage Mac when you do not have a more modern one?

If I could get a a hold of a copy of StuffIt on flloppy or CD-Rom then I'd have no problems opening them on my 1994 Mac but while the Windows version can open the files Windows doesn't recognize them so I can't burn them to a CD.

I would try moving the files via network, or a Zip disk. You could prepare the files in Windows via emulation. Well, actually I would just keep them in the virtual environment. :-)

Old hardware is a pain in the butt, but perhaps there are other clues here. https://emaculation....php/more_guides
