I spent a good deal of the money I made at IBM in 1994 on a Power Mac 6100 named Morag.
Make of that what you will. She held up pretty well for five
years, but I finally retired her in May, 1999, and replaced her with
Hamish the 300MHz G3, who runs MacOS 8.6. Hamish is hooked up to our shiny
new LAN, which connects him to Dave's new machine (running BeOS,
WinNT, Win95, Linux, or OS/2, depending on what mood we're in) and the old
486 (the FreeBSD gateway box). Seven operating systems in one house.
- Apple's web server.
- MacOS Rumors.
- EveryMac.com. "...a
complete guide of every Macintosh, MacOS-Compatible, and processor
upgrade card in the world, with detailed technical, configuration,
and pricing information."
- Ric Ford's MacInTouch page.
- The Info-Mac
HyperArchive. An HTMLified version of the Info-Mac archive at Stanford,
one of the best places to get Mac freeware and shareware.
- The Info-Mac
digests in HTML.
- TidBITS, a weekly
online publication describing the latest goings-on in the Mac world. Well
written and highly recommended.
- The online version of MacWeek
- The OTS/Mac Software
Archive at the University of Texas. Untouched since January, 1997,
but still home to lots of useful stuff, especially if you have an older system.
Macintosh Software Catalog at NEXOR -- another place for freeware
and shareware, but unfortunately untouched since April, 1997.
- Star Trek fans with Macintoshes should take a look at Macintosh: The
Final Frontier. Great stuff.
This is part of Robert Lentz's excellent
Macintosh pages, which, sadly, haven't been touched since 1995.
