Reviving an old computer is like restoring a classic car: There's a thrill from bringing the ancient into the modern world. So it was with my first "real" computer, my Mac Plus, when I decided to bring it forward three decades and introduce it to the modern Web.

It's amazing what's possible on these old machines.

I've hooked up my old Mac SE to the web.... well some time ago. I think it was via dial-up serial modem. I had to jigger some of the System Preferences and run software that technically wasn't supposed to run on an SE but so help me I did it.

Not very useful to say the least but I had to try it.
