Was MacOS.com treating the full-featured but timed demo version
"off-the-shelf" version simply due to its full functionality? Or was
there really a full, unlocked version that was previously downloadable
that is now gone? If so, does someone have a copy of the old freeware
version salted away? Please try to clarify this for me!
You can download a FREE full featured Claris Emailer 1.1v3 from:
They are giving it away now since they came out with Claris Emailer 2.0
Hello, Mac fans:
Well, I goofed. Claris Emailer 1.1 was not what I should have
In actuality, I need Emailer 1.0. Something happened between versions 1.0
and 1.1 that made Emailer incompatible with my SE. In any case, I can only
find Trial Software download sites for Emailer 1.0 (which seems bizarre to
me, since why go crazy over 1.0 if you're giving 1.1 away? :-|). So, my
question: Can I download the full version of 1.0 somewhere? If not, where
can I buy it? If it's no longer being sold, does anyone have an old copy
that they'd be willing to sell? If no one has a copy, where should I hit
my head several times on the desk?
I hope to forego that last one.
Also, I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get a Mac II
letters) really cheap. It wouldn't have to have keyboard or mouse or hard
drive, and although upgraded memory or a monitor would be a plus, they
aren't a necessity. I just want something a tiny bit more modern with CQD
so I can use some more modern programs than those that run on my SE.
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer,
Subject: Duo and International (?) Modem...
I need a pinout scheme for Duo's internal modem (Int'l version with DB-8
- not US with RJ-11). I need to connect this Duo to standard RJ-11 socket
but I can't buy an adaptor cable.
I am using a Duo with Int'l modem. Attached to de DB8 port on the
side is a "Apple Express Modem DAA" model number M1413 partno. N826-1556A.
However, I do not have a pin layout for you and I wonder if that is
sufficient looking at the above. If you are not able to obtain this part
please let me know, maybe I can find one in Holland for you.
1. No version (NOT even the Alpha .001) of Netscape Navigator
will run on
ANY Mac without CQD in ROM.
When you see "68000 machines, Power Macintoshes, or a FAT
binary", it means
68K chip machines (late `20s, all `30s, all `40s), not SPECIFICALLY a 68000
chip machine (no release 68000 chip machine ever had CQD in ROM, nor can
you add it).
2. There are NO ColorQuickDraw emulators for 68000 machines
extension supplied in some releases of System 6 allows those machines with
CQD in ROM to have the system recognize the ROM).
When I purchased my Mac Portable (I call it the Hernia) I seem to
something about it having CQD in ROM. Am I in err?

It is. The 170 had a number of external cards that were used in
They wern't very successful, I'm afraid. You may find a name/number on
the card, but good luck finding a company that is still around to help.

Subject: PowerBook Socket--Neat; what is it?
I just got a big ole' PowerBook 170. When I bought it, the guy
doesn't have an internal modem, but now I get to looking, and it seems to
have *something* installed where the modem would be. It's not an RJ11
connector like you'd expect, more like a standard round serial port, but
with more (and squarer) pins. Does anyone have a suggestion about what this
might be? My first thought was some kind of ethernet or othernet connector,
but that doesn't make this plug any more familiar. . . Perhaps it's a rare
and wonderful and extremely valuable thing I could exchange for an internal
If it is square and has about 30 pins, it is probably the SCSI
have to get an adaptor to use it, but that is where you would plug in your
external hard drive, cdrom drive, scanner, etc. etc. If that is indeed what
the port is, you won't be able to remove it.
Try finding a friend to actually take a look at it (perhaps the
guru for the local school system?)
I have been a PC user for six years now and I have never had to
money, always getting PC parts secondhand from friends who upgraded, or, my
personal favorite, by finding stuff in the trash behind a wonderfully
wasteful computer store near me. I recently aquired a Mac SE from a friend
who had recieved it free from Binghampton College when they upgraded, but I
need a keyboard, mouse, and OS and maybe hard drive for it.
I have always obtained free stuff for my PC, and though it may
distasteful to Mac people, I'm wondering if anyone knows of ways to get
free hardware/software for old Macs, from my Huntington, Long Island
hometown. If any of you have old or broken leftover stuff lying around
from upgrades/repairs/etc, let me know please.
Also, I would like to know.. every day or so I see someone saying
download older versions of System from Apple" but I have searched the site
far and wide, done a Yahoo search, etc and I cannot find for my life a
downloadable version of System 6 or 7. Can someone email me a specific
(complete) URL of a page/FTP site and directory where I can get the
software? Email to jratch
One last thing. I have a few SCSI drives lying around, which I
used on my PC for lack of a SCSI card. If I reformat it in a friend's
PowerMac (or off a boot disk) can I use my IBM 40meg SCSI, my Iomega
Bernoulli scsi, or any other SCSI drives that happen to be lying around for
my SE? Any info is appreciated. Thanks for your time, my apologies for

I purchased the full version. A friend purchased the upgrade.
Apparently the CD-ROM is the same. He can do a full install. The
packaging was different. I got a manual, the Internet Connection Kit
CD-ROM and the neato looking box. Scott paid $69, I paid $129 :(
IIci's are 030's, are 32 bit clean.
[MODERATOR'S NOTE: True, but the person who wrote the original
he had 7.1. The 7.6 Upgrade requires proof of ownership (Xeroxed owner's
manual title sheet; Xeroxed label of first install disk) of System 7.5 or
whatever in order for you to get the upgrade price (at least in _my_
catalogs). If you have System 7.1, you don't have any of these required
things, unless you do something rather underhanded. So the full price of
$129 would stand for him.]
[MODERATOR'S NOTE: Alan: If your IIci is 32-bit clean, has 8MB
(minimum--16's better), and at least a 68030, then you can upgrade it to 7.6
by buying the _full_version_ of 7.6. The "upgrade" version, which installs
on top of, rather than completely, will most probably only work on 7.5

Subject: 800k Disks: The Call of Desperation?
Does anyone know where I can order some 800k disks for my MacPlus?
If you need a newer Mac to think a 1.4 meg disk is really an 800k
just take some tape and cover the hole in the disk which tells the disk
drive on newer Macs that the disk is a 1.4 meg disk. Not the hole with the
sliding tab, the "other" hole :)
I'm looking for Mac Plus for my kid's first computer.
If you have any idea where I can find it.
Please kindly advise me.
I was advised that I'd better ask you about this matter by Mr. Jeffrey
Would someone point me to some information about putting my Mac
(running Syu 7.01) on a LAN (either 10baseT or 10base2). What kind or h/w
do I need and where might I get it?
Thanks for you time and trouble!

Dear moderator - I've got small mailbox space so I can't
subscribe, but I do
have a problem with my ORIGINAL Plus. An Iomega Zip installer lobotomized
my Rodime external HD. I've sucessfully reformatted it connected to my PB
52 using a Rodime HD Utility; but I cannot get it to connect successfully to
the Plus SCSI bus: using the Rodime utility, it locks up the Plus. I just
tried the Apple HD SC, and it reports that no suitable device is connected
to the bus. I have already replaced the motherboard thinking that the SCSI
chip or something went bad (got one from Shreve).
How can I check this out? I have an active terminator adapter; I
connect it & the Zip possibly, and watch the flashing LEDs for the various
lines. DOn't have a digital multimeter, but could use an analog if safe or
borrow a digital to check for power on the bus/board traces...
I'd really like to give my wife her Magic Keyboard back again, she
getting pretty good at playing the piano.
