What is the nichrome project

February 14, 2020

Nichrome downloads software for vintage Macs from the waybackmachine. The process relies on scripts and other apps to achieve a directory of software downloads. Duplicate files and empty folders are removed and the final results are packaged and uploaded via FTP to the Macintosh Garden Hosting Project. Eventually these software packages will also be added to the internet archive for convenience.
