Visiting tonight on a $5 se/30 with a free modem (cable was2$!) all thanks to JAG. Aside from redraws, with a 33.6 usr, jag's7.5 advice and downloads, list of modem jumpers, jags MacPPPsetup, netscape 2, fetch (it works!) I could do it. the big sticklerwas getting the cable for the modem. This has been quite a fun side project, and people like Jag have made it much easier, really enjoyable as opposed to hair pulling aggravating sleep losing endeavors.

thanks again,

It's a really great site (looks good in b&w too, no mean feat)

Hello Jag, thank you for the great website on classic Macs.

I am emailing you via lynx via zterm via my 4 meg Mac Plus with an external floppy. (and a hayes 9600 modem!). I booted 6.0.3 on one floppy, and am running zterm from the other. I am going to give this machine to my aunt so she can have an email machine. Thanx,


P.S. lynx is really cool to use!


just a note of thanks. i'm emailing you from my B&W Mac Classic 4/40 running sys 6.0.7. I downloaded your getting on the web pack signed up for a free isp provider with free POP mail account (just a recent thing here in New Zealand) and brought a 56K global village modem from work for a very decent price. your turorials were very helpful and i was up and FTPing and sending email in no time.

Your website is an absolute credit to you and the mac community, keep it up.



PS I may yet upgrade to sys 7.0.1 and get this puppy on the web but the novelty of using sys 6 hasn't worn off yet!?!




Great site. Thanks to all the links and resources I've got my 1 meg Mac Plus doing email, ftp and telnet. I've got it booting off the built-in floppy with 6.0.8, AppleShare, PPP and MacTCP and SuperFinder. Fetch, Eudora and NCSA Telnet are served up from a 6100/66 running 7.5.3 over PhoneNet connectors. Next step is to get an external floppy for the Plus and let it do ALL the work ;-)

All in all pretty good for a $5 computer and a $3 modem.

Thanks again,
