As I mentioned in an earlier thread, I recently picked up a Powerbook 1400. 64 mb Ram, 133mhz proc, 1 gig HD. I finally got OS 8 up and running on the machine and was looking for programs to put on it. I got a few things from the System 7 today website, but couldn't find a whole lot.

Anyone know a good resource for cool, free little programs? Games, office prod, whatever. I know from searchiing that Oregron Trail used to be available as Abandonware, but that site has since gone dead.

Sorry if this question has been asked before--I searched, but couldn't really find anything.

I have a 1400 too! I don't know if any one has mentioned this, but I very strongly recommend that you upgrade to Mac OS 8.6. It's more stable than 8.1, and 8.5, plus you get to use Carbon applications.

Or you can *upgrade* down to 7.6.1 as many people have done based on the web site in my signature. Check it out, you may be surprised what you'll find.
