As you might have read in some of my other postings, I'm slowly resurrecting an upgraded Color Classic, which is currently working well, with 32 megs of RAM, a 2gb external HDD and an external AppleCD 600i drive. I've been transferring files from my MacBook Pro via CD-R (thanks to those that helped me figure out the disc formatting issues!), and I've bought an ethernet card from eBay which should be arriving in a few days - Internet, here I come!
Whenever I get the itch to play around with my old Macs, the 68kMLA, AppleFritter and Jag's House are usually the first places to go for good ideas, so I thought I'd throw out a question (and apologies in advance if this has been covered before):
Where are the best sources for 'classic' Mac software/shareware/freeware? I spent a little while digging around on Google last night, and I found a lot of pages that link to other, (now dead) repositories, but it seems like there must be a few really well-stocked websites or ftp servers that I just didn't stumble across. I'm not saying that I didn't find some cool stuff ("The Mac Garden" is hosting a lot of classic games - I was up waaay too late last night playing Oregon Trail for the first time in years!), but I can't shake the feeling that I'm missing some good leads.
Also, on the same topic, what are some of your "must have" old software picks? While I was stumbling around on Google, I came across the official website of "Cap'n Magneto" and I was blown away - I haven't seen that game since I was a kid! I'll admit now that I'm mostly focused on old games right now, but if you can suggest any particular programs to look for, I'd appreciate it.
I hope this post wasn't too rambling to make sense,
