Old Starter Kits Now Online

Send Article to a Friend

Old Starter Kits Now Online -- Last week a reader commented that he couldn't find the online versions of my Internet Starter Kit books (3rd edition Mac, 2nd edition Windows 3.1) at Macmillan Computer Publishing's site due to yet another reorganization. Rather than trying to track people down there and get redirects working for the umpteenth time, I've posted the full text of these books on the TidBITS Web site. The basic discussion of the Internet is probably still more or less accurate, although the details about programs are wildly out of date. But even that old information might be useful for anyone trying to set up or troubleshoot Internet connections on an old Mac or PC. I know I refer back to the books every so often when I can't remember how to configure MacTCP or MacPPP. I hope people continue to derive utility from these books, despite their age. [ACE]
