  1. Two random questions, first, what are some good links for Newton software downloads? Second is, I know the eMate 300 has several battery refurb options, but what about older Newtons like the 120 or 130 or 2000? Do they have similar battery packs that can be cracked open and replaced with new NiMH cells?
  2. So some followup details, its not internet traffic, its local network. The web server is a 2016 iMac. All my vintage Macs have SCSI2SD cards in them, not sure if the SCSI2SD is limiting file IO which is then slowing me down to 42KBps. The PowerMac 8600 is not SCSI2SD, its using a PC SATA card attached to a more modern SSD drive. Regarding Nubus... the IIci and IIfx have Nubus ethernet cards, PM 8600 and Q700 have built-in ethernet, and the LC III and Q605 have PDS style ethernet cards, video on those in onboard. I'll confirm the make/model of the ethernet cards, maybe f
  3. I have a variety of vintage macs (IIci, IIfx, LC III, Powerbook 3400, Quadra 605, Quadra 700, PowerMac 8600). They all have 10Base-T NICs in them (Quadra 700 and PoweMac 8600 are built-in). I've noticed that KBps (Bytes not bits) varies wildly between them, with the less powerful machines being the slowest. For example, the Quadra 605 on my local network gets a MAX of about 42KBps transfer throughput, thats 336kbps on a 10Mbps LAN link - which seems really low. In this case, I'm downloading a file from a more modern iMac on the local network running a web server, the do
