FYI: it's either an SE/30, or a Classic - the two names were never combined.

You could:

- Boot System 6 from floppy, run a full-screen clock (did this for a few

cost money but there's always old free hardware around!)

- Get an external SCSI enclosure and hard drive and install NetBSD:

- If you like fish, build a Macquarium for you or someone else:
