**OT-- Bill, I'm pretty sure that the 760k floppies can not be read on modern drives. I remember this was a big hassle when Apple made th switch.|
I believe the technical issue is the BIAS on the disk media- the old 760 k signal is too big, and swamps the sensitive heads presently used. Anyway, I just tried a superdrive, and no soap. But the guy helping me out rummaged through some old stuff, and found two appletalk connectors with a 3' phone line between 'em all set to rock and roll!
Now, since my MacSE has a 40MB hard disk, I wonder where I'll put all that data! (tee hee!)
The not so funny thing is how good a machine the MACSE is for just wordprocessing and drawing macpaint sketches. There is no reason a palm pilot couldn't be that much, and more-
esp. with those new IBM micro hard drives, right, Jim?
