The Mac SE was the first mac I bought for myself (My father bought me a mac on the day I was born, 31st Oct 1986)

It cost me just £100 and I still have it :)

I've got you beat, my friend.

My Mac Plus, 1MB/20MB, running system 6.0.5

Upgrading my Mac Plus to 4MB RAM

My Mac Plus, 4MB/520MB + ethernet, running system 6.0.8 (Fetch)


The machine had a Rodime 20MB SCSI drive to start with. Finding a larger SCSI drive that would work with the Mac Plus's "SCSI" was quite a challenge. The Mac Plus went to market before the SCSI standard was nailed down, and as such it is super picky about certain drive settings. I pulled together 2 old SCSI drives from my stockpile (one was the orig SCSI drive in my NeXTstation before I up'ed it to 2GB), purchased 2 used SCSI drives, and grabbed an unused SCSI drive from the old 486 machine back at my parents' house that used to hold NEXTSTEP for Intel before I got it working. It was that last drive, a Fujitsu 520MB SCSI drive, that finally worked.

I was using LocalTalk (AppleTalk on serial) to tie to my DP G4 800 (I added a Stealth Serial Port (replacing modem) on the G4 to provide an old-school serial port that will work with AppleTalk under OS 9) to move files before I added an Asante EN/SC (SCSI->Ethernet) adapter so that I can use FTP into OS X to move files. I am having trouble getting EtherTalk going (AppleTalk over ethernet) between the two machines.

Interestingly, while the Mac Plus with System 6.0.8 would not recognize anything larger than a 2GB partition, my Apple IIgs running GS/OS, over LocalTalk, can happily browse even my 160GB partition. Curious.

yup... well, with the EtherLink/SE, the SE's actually pretty useful as an email station, and a place to do some terminal admin.

System 6 is fast for an old 8MHz MC68000 machine like Plus and the SE... ^^

NetBSD'ng now on a IIci, compiling apache... slow computation wise, but network wise it's still good via a 10BT Asante NuBus... might be changing it with a Q700 board later.

What tool did you use to get the word 'onyx' printed out in large ASCII like that for you .login file? I would like to do the same.

Thanks.

Blake,

ASCII text was designed in Email Effects X, and edited in vi to add it the color escape code (yes it has color):



more info see this thread in MacNN forum.

Everyone knows that the Color Classic was the BEST!!!! People have been able to mod it so that it takes a G3! Just goes to show you the kind of devotion color classic owners have towards their comps.
