Emulation
This app works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

Do you remember the days of BBS, when some of us were happy with a 1200 baud modem connection?
1200 baud was fast those days, an incredible speed of 150 Bytes per second Smile. You can figure out by yourself how long it would take to download e.g. BBEdit Lite 3.6 with a size of 640 kilobytes, given that your modem connection would break down several times and you would have to start all over again.
I came across an advertisement by Metatec Discovery Systems in 1993 offering a whole compact disc with Apple stuff and other cool things for only a few dollars on a monthly basis. I subscribed, of course and below are the disks I have gotten.
(Before you ask, the July-94 release never made its way to me.)

The disks contain data and audio files, therefore I made them .BIN/.TOC. You will have to burn it to CD again to use it with the Classic OS. Even then, I'm afraid SheepShaver or Basilisk II won't open the audio part of the disks. But I guess you will know how to rip audio tracks. For the titles of the audio tracks, please check the scanned booklets. (I did not care much about the audios)

The downloads from the internal server are bin/cue images of CDs that I burned from the original bin/toc files. Use Toast (or equivalent) to burn physical CDs that contain both data and audio tracks.

The Manual DL is a DiskTracker catalogue of the CDs

Nautilus comes with its own shell or file browser, nice to have, but not a "must have"

  Do we need separate entries for vols 4,5 and 6?

If there as many monthly entries as for vol 4, I think so.

There is nearly all of vol 5 and a couple from vol 6 to go. These are the ones that 24bit had on MF originally. It could get a bit crowded. Do we need separate entries for vols 4,5 and 6?

Seems this entry could be sticked to Vol. 4 only, with its different editions.

I have them all. I will put them on my list to upload. Anyone else, who wants to as well, is welcome.

Files available here?

Me, I found Nautilus Volume 5 with CD booklet in my archive.

Got the wired client. I await your convenience Smile

http://www.zankasoftware.com/wired/client/ might be worth looking at.
Some servers are online (again). Open the zanka tracker listing in the main window.
You may notice some German sites allowing guest download. Smile

Never used wired before. I am happy to do so if you tell me what to do.

I´ll have to re-locate the CDs on the attic. Will take some time.
Wired is not an option for you?

Thank you, 24bit. I would like to use Knez but I have to use public chat before I can download. Now this is fine, and I have tried this before by logging in to macdomain and making a contribution, but of course my Frogblast connection knows nothing about this, so that is no good. Obviously I am missing something. Can you please put the files on Ubuntu1. I have created a new account there.

Thanks again

Guess I could upload new bin/toc images from time to time.
Would you prefer Knez´s Hotline or docmeth02´s Wired?

Ubuntu1 could serve well maybe too, but storage is limited there again.

I downloaded these in August but have only just got around to stitching the parts together and burning CDs. Unfortunately, some of my downloads were incomplete (I didn't check...arrgh), and the links are now all dead. Can someome please put the files for Feb 1994, Apr 1994 and May 1994 somewhere that I can get to. I would be most grateful.

Many Thanks P7. I have the first full CD, so I will try it tonight!

Actually, none of those support bin/toc. They support bin/cue which is the more common "CDRWin" format. Bin/toc is unique to cdrdao on linux (and the many apps based on it).

To burn these on Windows you need burnatonce, which I've linked below. Works fine even on Windows 7 x64 (just be sure to run it as admin if you have UAC enabled).

Thanks 24bit, that site is awesome - downloaded FullWrite Professional free version, and More 3.1 too!

I will be burning the images to CD on Win7, probably using ImgBurn, but I also have Alcohol 120% or Nero 7. Oh, and I have a 64bit Win 7 version of DiscJuggler too (don't ask me how...just go with it!)

I believe ALL those programs support TOC/BIN, but I have a CD burner on the G3 iBook with Toast Titanium 5.03. You tell me what the best way is, and I will follow your instructions blindly!

Cheers.

Epic upload 24bit! Gonna pick up these last two volumes now. Thanks!

I'm downloading these on a PC too. I can drop them onto Stuffit Expander for Windows (from v7) and it stitches the .sit together and then extracts.

I checked with the latest Expander (in 10.6) and dropping the first part (downloaded on PC) onto the Expander windows extracts the archive, but doesn't stitch the archive together first.

Also, on Windows you can burn these using burnatonce. It will give a warning about inconsistencies when you open the .toc file because it expects the .bin path to be absolute. Click OK and it will fix the toc and begin burning. On Vista and 7 you may have to run it as admin.

The type should read "Seg1", "Seg2" and so on, creator code is "SIT!"
You can find Stuffit for Windows here: http://www.emaculation.com/doku.php/downloads
What burning program are you planing to use? The bin/toc things were made with Gnome CD Master.
I had no luck with Alcohol52% to create those.

Oh dear, I am downloading this on a PC. Will I lose the ability to stitch these together again?

Can someone post the type/creator codes for the multi-part files? I believe 1, 2, and 3 have special types that give custom labelled icons, the rest are generic...

many thanks!

Ah, I use my real name, like I do on Apple Discussios, so you'll have to excuse me if I keep it private.

I found it simpler to stick to one screen name, so yes. 24bit was the address bus of my first Mac.
What is your screen name over there?

Edit: I did not want to break your right to privacy in asking this.

Jeez, 24bit, that's a lot of effort still to go.

Are you the same 24bit that frequents the emaculation forums ?

24bit's picture

The image files are .bin with an accompanying .toc file. The .cue extension with 4-7 is a mistake of mine. Please rename it to .bin and follow the description given by Protocol7 (see above). Burn the files to disk if you want them to work with Classic.

What is .cue? Isn't that Microsoft?! Can the files be opened on Mac OS 9?

Not really "obscure", that was the first adjective coming to my mind. In German we have a saying "One dog from each village". If you look for Pagemaker here, you get Pagemaker. Nautilus is some random collection,
maybe with a collectors value or probably with some rare bits and bytes.
