Only the Mac l33t will get this.
i wonder if i can still dial up with that busty old thing
Look at my nick and try to tell me I don't get it
As for getting it to dial-up, hell I had mine for a short time with a 10-BaseT LDS enthernet card in it. Downloaded so fast the CPU couldn't keep up with handling the data and that was with just a simple web download, it was 100 times worse with downloading binariers from newsgroups (yes, porn pics) so much so that the clock would lose time..the clock lost about 15mins once, if I remember it right
I remember the old setup we had at school.
A network of classics running on appletalk (RJ11 I'm pretty sure) to a central HDD box which everyone loaded off.. Damn it was slow, t'was better to use the floppy drive.
Was just talking about my LCIII in another thread
I remember wanting one of the first PowerMacs
Had an original Mac, 512k Mac, Mac+, SE, SE/30 (that was a hot machine back then), Mac Classic, and a Powerbook 180 (another great machine, i love the trackballs on the early powerbooks).
But then i got one of the first powermacs: 8100/80. With a *16 inch* monitor!
We still have the original Mac (or is it the plus?) in a probably less than functional condition in the garage somewhere, the PB180 still runs great, with 14MB RAM and some miniscule ~100MB HDD. The 8100/80 is still going as well, and still gets used occasionally (though mostly as a file server, although a small one).
i tried to boot up my PowerBook 100 the other day for the first time since moving two years ago and i got the flashing disk on boot up. time to download system 6 and re-install again. needs a new battery and one of the legs in the back doesn't quite work anymore, but other than that it's still in great shop.
technically, it's not even a 680X0, it's a 68HC000 or something like that.
rockin' the Quadra 660AV... man that was a fun machine, it was one of the first ones with speech capability lots of hours logged using that function
