A few letters in response to the Menagerie of Macs:
This FAQ for Windows 95 should be updated for Window 98 in the near future.
Apple has released a new, lighter, faster PowerBook G3, Menagerie of Macs is now online, and Future Power has created a terrible iMac rip-off.
I have a confession to make. I’ve been faltering. Yes, the die hard Mac user who has spent a good amount of time saying how much PCs suck has been peeking at what IBM and Compaq have to offer.
Bill Clinton, Jean Cretien, and Bill Gates were at a meeting discussing the fate the digital revolution in North America. In the meantime, Saddam Hussien decided he’d had about enough from those three and bombed them.
Just a couple letters from our readers this month.
They really do have personality, don’t they? Mac users think of their computer as a member of the family. We’re a little eccentric, we admit that, but there is something really endearing about that hunk of plastic and silicon on your desk.
A few words before we get started. I didn’t unsubscribe anyone who asked to be taken off the list last month, because I did in fact ask you not to do so since I was busy trying to keep this ‘zine alive at the time.
Okay, this isn’t a joke so much as something I found interesting. Apparently when our good friend Mr. Jobs accused our other good friend, Mr. Gates, of stealing interface ideas, he replied like this: “No, Steve. I think it’s more like we both have this rich neighbour named Xerox, and when you broke in to […]
This month I was planning on writing a nice little piece on the personal style of the Mac. A little article that talked about how cool they are with their aesthetics, design, and following. But that is no more. Due to some unaccounted for problems I will be writing about the possible advent of the […]
Unfortunately, not everyone knows the joys of networking with a friend in a coffee house or the pleasure of completing a report on your front porch. However, to those of us who do, or soon will, we at the Menagerie of Macs have created this handbook for your edification, enjoyment, and daily use.
I have a problem with the Pentium III. I have big problem, and I’m not alone. Several large privacy organizations are throwing a fit over it. It seems like a good enough processor, starting at 500 MHz and peaking at 800 MHz, but there’s something else. All this over a little three-letter acronym. The PSN.

When Karen closed off her message with “Thanks for the great mag!” I gave in. Not that these aren’t pretty funny.
For all those questions that you have about what runs your Mac, here is the definitive article that explains it all. Here’s lesson number one; it isn’t a little mouse that runs around on a wheel, it’s a ferret, on speed.
“Collect them all!” exclaimed Steve Jobs as he finished debuting the new iMacs. They now come in five different colours: lime, strawberry, grape, tangerine, and blueberry.
Thanks for the feedback to our first two issues!
Ah, freedom. It truly is amazing that we can put the power of a 45 pound computing ensemble into the case of a book and have it weigh in at about five pounds. The freedom that a laptop gives you is beyond compare. You can write, compile, archive, or even edit that new action flick […]
Bill Gates wanted to look good and impress everyone with his success. He decided to measure the accomplishments of Microsoft against General Motors.
It’s back! I got some positive feedback and a few submissions, and it looks like the Menagerie of Macs might just survive. I have to remind all of you about some of the things I said last month. I really do need help. I need submissions, mostly for articles, but art doesn’t hurt. I think […]
Exactly why does the Macintosh beats the pants off Wintel? We all know it’s true but sometimes we forget all the reasons to confuse Windows users with. This is the average Mac lovers guide to what you should tell your friends who think they know it all.
These letters were received prior to publication of the first issue as Menagerie of Macs was preparing to launch.
Well, my computer threw a major hissy-fit today. DOCmaker blew up. I’ve decided that I’ve kept you waiting long enough. So, without further ado I present the first issue of the Menagerie of Macs!
