I bought a Mac 512k for parts and upon opening it, I discovered it has a Mac Rescue board installed which adds Mac Plus ROMs, SCSI, 4mb of RAM, and an 800k floppy drive. Glad I just upgraded my 512ke to 1mb 😕

With 1024kb of RAM, I can finally run MacTCP, MacPPP, and a client application to natively use the internet with the Mac's own IP stack (NATed through my OpenBSD firewall via pppd).

That just seems so much cooler than offloading all the IP to a Wifi232 pretending to be a modem.

carl carlson stein (2005-2020) a gentle, goofy, loyal friend that was loved by everyone that met him. he was a constant in my life for 14 years and it's going to be hard not seeing him every day. we will miss him dearly.
