A friend gave me a Mac Plus today. The shift key on the keyboard doesn't seem to work, but everything else is fine.

So, what exactly should I do with this thing? lol.

awsome find, that was my first computer that my dad found at a tag sale, its a really nice computer. i would try to find some old games and play em on it. or use it as a word processor, theres alot of programs u can find searching google.

I would turn it into a fish tank, but then again, that's just me. ;)

Copy those HyperCard disks for me :rolleyes:

I used to love HyperCard back when we had it at school! :)

You could always turn it into a Webserver. A nice little machine, for a small website. Google "Mac Plus Webserver" for more info.

I have an old mac, the monitor is frikken heavy (its like 15") and the computer itself has like a 40MB HDD in it, I should sell it to science in the future lol.
