    Anyone have ideas of what to do with old Macs (pre Power PC)?

    I for example have 2 LC575, 1 Quadra 605, 1 Performa 630CD, and even 2 Mac Plus.

    The Performa 630 CD ihas Eudora Mail Server an ultra old version thats only worth for internal mail in my office since we send big files all day.

    I would like to put one Mac Plus on display with a simple but nice presentation (kind of flash) in the reception, i think it would be cool, but i dont't know how the heck to do it...

    Any more Ideas?

    Head over to Macintosh Garden and get some old games, and play a little whenever you get that nostalgic feeling... ;)

    Back when I was in college (1996~2000) we used to put JPGs in a folder along with this program and it would make instant slide shows. Just double-click on it and off you went.

    ... I cannot remember the name of the program now, though... :mad:

    QuickView, maybe?

    A neat idea is to mac an aquarium. I know some people that do this with the classics and G3 imacs. Put a beta in it and call it cool. :cool:

    I know the problem is space to put them all, but I can't bear to part with my old machines. I dream of having my own computer lab where I can go from one mac to the other.... bliss

    Seriously tho, I've seen pics on the net of fish tanked computers and it is very cool looking!
