emulation.net: Dedicated to emulation on the Macintosh

Last updated: 9/17/2001


emulation.net is dedicated to emulation on the Mac OS. Thanks to the sheer processing power of the PowerPC architecture, the Mac OS can support the most powerful emulation technologies with ease.

As most of you undoubtedly already know, international terrorists of unknown affiliation struck U.S. soil yesterday, hitting the World Trade Center in New York City as well as the Defense Department headquarters at the Pentagon, just outside Washington, D.C. We at emulation.net extend our deepest and most sincere sympathies to the families of all the victims of this desperate tragedy and will be keeping them--and all of the world--in our prayers.

I personally would also urge you to please do your part in resolving this horrible crisis. You can donate blood or plasma (my recommendation is plasma--it takes longer to donate, but is in even higher demand) or make a monetary donation to the American Red Cross directly or via PayPal. Amazon.com has also set up a site for monetary donations.

Let our humanity be not our next casualty. [news contributed by Fred Hohlen]
