Classic MacI rescued this from recycling. It’s running System 6, Microsoft Word 5, and has a satisfyingly loud hum alongside its 40 meg of hard drive space. It is the legendary Macintosh Classic, discontinued 1992 (yes kids that’s 15 years ago).

What a beauty.

Update: via transatlantic slow post comes a second-hand copy of Computer Law – a mammoth and out-of-print Canadian text on goldfish breeding. (Actually, it’s about computer law, funnily enough – just checking that you’re still reading). An update of one of the classic Canadian techielaw books, in fact. The author, George Takach, taught me computer law at Osgoode.
