Zweierlei GlobeHopper!


Es gab für beide GeoBooks zweierlei GlobeHopper Browser. Da ich sowohl den schwarz/weissen NB-60 als auch den bunten NB-80C habe, habe ich beide GlobeHopper-Version installiert und mit beiden kann man sich über das interne Modem im Internet einwählen, über sbq sogar (bei Flattarif) ohne Extrakosten.

Es waren zwei unterschiedliche Diskettensätze dabei, wobei ich auch schon einmal den GlobeHopper des NB-80C mit Erfolg auch auf dem s/w NB-60 installieren konnte.

Beide haben auch unterschiedliche eMail-Programme, ich werde mal die Versionsnummern aller 4 Programme heraussuchen und vielleicht auch einmal die Disketten unter BrotherWorks 98 instalieren, um Bilderchen zu machen.
