Re: Ah the good old days

A good description of os commands. But the station number was set by removable links inside a Model B, or in the battery - backed CMOS RAM on the later systems. (The links or switches on the model B keyboard set things like default screen mode, FDC speed, auto boot, etc.) A copy of SetStn in an insecure location was fun if you were using Masters..

I'm confused by the reference in the article to an Apple as fileserver, though. That's not a solution I've ever heard of before.
