    Millenium bug after 20 years?

    Yes 2000 was where it changed i agree, my 2001 imac with osx 10.3 on seems like any new computer, my 1995 PowerPc and my Mac SE/30 feel really really old by comparison. Unfortunately I remember the 1970’s just with my first computer in 1981 wow thinks have changed a lot

    SCSI zip drive

    Obviously its a pointless silly endeavour to do especially was 3 newer macs and an iPhone 7plus in my pocket but hey what the hell mac brough the mouse and desktop publishing to the masses so I’m doing it anyway lol. My next challenge is to get the network card working and do my emails on it but both are proving harder to achieve one step at a time. Sweet a plus! These little machines can do more than you think but yeah getting them up and running isn’t always that easy

    SCSI zip drive

    Yes kind of, my original 40mb drive was starting to fail and would stick a bit so I brought a later 1gb none quantum drive and installed 7.5.5 on it and hence me wanting to back up using zip (for now) installed a bunch of utilities, software and games as i have a gb to play with and it may sound stupid as its a 1 bit black and white machine with a tiny screen but I’m setting my se/30 up for desktop publishing. I’ve maxed the ram (128mb), i have a scsi scanner, apple 1200 printer, a wacom graphics tablet, photoshop, quark express, aldus freehand etc.. all for doing graphics, drawing and art. I did design at uni back in 1992 and used macs then and had a colour classic but always liked the little black and white machines so kinda nostalgic to attempt art on one now. I’m not a designer anymore I’m to much of a geek for that but do enjoy playing around with the software and making things especially of an old mac.

    SCSI zip drive

    Its worked for me lesca, it took a long time to get anything onto my se/30 and ended up buying the performa just to get online and transfer files, the zips have been a god send, now my se/30 is near where i want it backing up to zip so i could reinstall if i had a hhd failure is a must as it’s taken me 12-18 months to get this far

    SCSI zip drive

    I have a spare parallel zip if all goes wrong but thats really slow compared to the scsi version

    SCSI zip drive

    Same unknown I’ve found them reliable myself, i had a Zip drive back in the 1990’s and father was still using his zip drive for copying files as late as 2016 as his internet was so poor at home (he lives in the countryside). I’ve had my zip drives for 18 months now and couldn’t have got my se/30 up and running without them, i use my performa to access macintoshgarden (be it slowly) download to zip and transfer to my se/30, it’s not as good as networked but it works and is somehow satisfying hearing all the noises and blinking lights

    SCSI zip drive

    I’ve brought 35 disks off ebay and 6-7 didn’t work but thankfully didn’t damage either of my drives; 1 x zip 100 scsi and 1 x zip 100 plus like yours again on scsi. I had to re format all as they were old ibm etc but now have over 3GB’s worth of disks to back up my 3 vintage macs. Love the zip drive

    Res Edit

    Hi Ktkm, good question i’ve not got to that part myself yet as i haven’t got my se/30 network card setup yet but in theory you use the moderm machine as the SSL and authentification as the mail server and tgen push to the old macintosh

    Thanks Pigeon. No Crutch, still not working, i know the line is fine i know as I swapped if with my performa and that gets online no problem. I think i need to take the card out and re-install the drivers and try again

    What version of open transport and os do you have on yours as I noticed you have more boxes in your TCP/IP page?
