New LOT o' Stuff... Update: unearthed more boxes revealing a few similarly sized Performa desktops with internal CD 👍 Stay tuned for photos and details on them. They are thicker so therefore heavier. Probably won't fit in the same box as the shorter ones. Today we're going back to the halcyon days of Apple I have more than one of many of these; All-one-computers: (Black & White built in monitors) Mac Plus Mac SE Mac Classic Pics of the Mac Classic Booting like its 1990 😁 This thing is 16.1 pounds without keyboard or mouse I found a snug box from Amazon that is 14x12.5x9.5 I think snug is better for this . One layer of bubble wrap and a piece of thick foam over the screen should do nicely Keyboard, mouse & whatever I figure out for networking will fit in a separate box This may be a situation where you need a floppy drive that can read and write Mac floppies. I need to research that end of it Small form factor desktops in color output with CD-ROM Capability, internal hard drives with OS7xx or OS8xx: LC (II & III I think) Quadra Performa (various, some with internal CD & Floppy) These small form factor Macs can be shipped in a Regional Rate Type C box For between $8.75 to $18.75 depending on where in the US you are They require monitor adaptors of which I have a few to dole out with these Packages as well as special networking hardware dongles. Some of these have Ethernet . First come, first serve on those. I've posted screen shots of specs for these Macs here Software: 27 (possibly more) "Mac Addict" magazine CD-ROMs These are full of free utils, apps and games along with other stuff Official KINKO's Computer Department Software Install Disks These are the official disks all Technolog Managers (of which I was one) used to do a clean install on our Power Macs that we rented out. Full Adobe, Office & ofher apps for mod to late 90s OS9xx Power Macs Don't ask questions yet until I have a chance to research, test & update. More photos & details will come at any time so if you want to be first In line, subscribe to this thread Photos from last LOT are here in case anyone wants to buy stuff from HyperBoy until he can make his own thread . PM him for details. He will have this stuff in a couple days as it is packed and labeled, & out for pickup from USPS
I don't know about everyone else here, but I really enjoy the current "Yesterday's News" and "Shift838" newsletters put out by both Sparkdrummer & Chris Schneider. Every issue gets printed up, assembled, read and carefully archived for future reference and re-reads. We also have a lot of old TI talent hanging out here at Atari Age, many of whom have written articles for their club newsletters in the past. Wouldn't it be great to see some PDF copies of their old newsletters and examples of some of their early articles/works? How about it guys? Care to share? I know I'm not the only one who would like to see your stuff. Who knows it might inspire more conversation or new stuff. There is PLENTY of endless space in this thread to post your stuff!
I recently obtained a little gadget that some of you may or may not know about, it's called a Lantronix UDS-10. It can get your old Classic Computer on the Internet. It acts like a modem, but it handles all the telnet protocols internally. One end hooks up to your classic computers RS-232, the other end uses an Ethernet cable and plugs into your router. I was amazed to find "GOBS" of active BBS's on the Internet. In my gallery << HERE >> you can see some images of the unit and a screen shot of the TI connected to one of the BBS's. << HERE >> Is the eBay search string. Sometimes you might have to wait a week or two to find a good, but you should be able to get one under $30.00 (shipping included) if you are patient.
