I think all the necessary packages can be found on NewtonMad, or any mirror,
like in
<>. These are PC based packages
however. I wonder if there is any Macintosh-based NewtonMad mirror somewhere? As
you all know, it's not always easy to get to NewtonMad (the original), so when I
found this mirror on sunder, it became my 'official' NewtonMad site ;-)
However, all packages seem to originate from a DOS based machine, which is, at
time, a bit annoying (like you don't have the full name, as you're limited to 8
chars for the name, the file shows as a generic document, yes, sure I'm using a
file typer for a long time, but that's another operation to perform). Anyway, I
guess you get it. So, if anyone knows of a Mac-based NewtonMad, I'd like to hear
about it.
