    Apple Reference and Presentations Library (ARPLE) CD Collection

    By the way, I bought that OS 8 one on eBay for laughs…did you have that one as well, or not? I forgot what you said.

    KidPix slow/laggy custom cursor

    I’ve never tried it on that new of a machine, but perhaps it could be some sort of system incompatibility. I’ve run it mostly in System 6 and 7 from a Mac Plus to Quadras…and I’ve never seen any slow cursor issues.

    macOS 12.6 - Desktop pictures reset every restart

    WPA2 for PowerBooks/iBooks?

    Does this not also depend on where you live? I live on a couple of acres…someone would have to do drive-by hacking!

    ROLL CALL: Mac SE SuperDrive Machines

    Both units I have are F103s. Is the way the serial number supposed to work correct?

    Problem Installing "Born Again" on IIfx

    I’m going to try this out. I have four partitions on my SCSI2SD, so I can try and put 8.1 on one of them.

    Macintosh Color Display: How did I royally screw this up???

    It really doesn't make sense to me, either.
