Have you ever asked yourself "Now where am I going to find that Old MS-DOS Program?"
Or, dug up that old System 6 or 7 Mac SE and replaced its PRAM battery. You want the best old Macintosh games for it ..... http://www.umich.edu/~archive/mac/game/
The U-M Software Archiveshttp://www.umich.edu/~archive/
The Archives Are In Hiberation (but hopefully not dead, yet)
We haven't been able to update the archives in a long time due to lack of support from the University and lack of support of volunteers. I hope to change this situation soon. If you're up to a challenge and would like to help us out in "resurrecting" the U-M archives (and for you U-M folks checking this page, it's doubly desirable if you're on campus), drop me a line. Thanks.
Want to get into (what's left of) the archives the easy way?
The Apollo Archives
The Apple II Archives
The Atari Archives
The Linguistics Archives
The Macintosh Archives
The MS-Dos Archives
The Physics Archives
The X11 Archives
This is a simple way to do it. Eventually we'll add a nicer looking interface.
Our Preferred Ways To Get Into The Archives
read this and pay attention
Our WWW interface at www .umich.edu is conditional... it's the general http server for the University of Michigan. Consequently, if the system administrators discover that the load average is becoming unbearable because of people retrieving files, they've reserved the right to disallow access via www .umich.edu.
Therefore, the Archivists request you use these mechanisms as much as possible (in order of preference):
1) the number one way to get into the U-M archives is via AFS. If you have AFS, all our files are kept in the directory "/afs/umich.edu/group/itd/archive". If you have AFS, PLEASE USE IT!
2) Gophering to gopher.archive.umich.edu and looking under the "Software Archives" choice.
3) This WWW interface is fine, at this point.
