    Cool - Any Chance to Get More?

    I know it has been a while since you posted this, but are such cards still available?

    And, more importantly, once you have Internet or network access, is the Apple //e and its sister machines only good for being a terminal or FTP repository?

    I mean, is there a graphical browser that can be used, albeit and a very poor resolution and bit depth?

    Maybe I've been holding onto my //e for too long.


    Thanks,
    Danny

    According to the vendor's website, none as of April 28, but their blog indicates they still intend to put out more batches when they can.

    If it's a web browser you're after, the best thing available is Contiki. Not graphical - you're not going to get that - but a marvelous piece of software all the same.

    The same thing that any other person would do with a computer that's connected to a network.

    to transfer data and what have you.

    Damn it all, when i was working they was not available, now since i was laid off they become available, it figures.

    you should be able to read/write /sent /receive emails
    like i sometimes do on my commodore sx 64
    but i do not even use a ethernet connection, i still use hold your breath a acoustic coupler and it still works ,
    something like that here and selfbuild too

    but for some reason it only works in germany so thats where i leave the whole lot , here it would only stay around useless as i cant get the phone to work with the coupler in the uk and could never figure out why

    Perhaps, but that's not really the point of the hardware. It's just neat to see vintage machines do interesting things.
