seems to be loads of people struggling to get their
heads round the Mac Trade Threads, so I've put this
together to help.
1. Go to the Mac Trade thread
2. Once in the Mac Trade thread, click the tab
that says "Search this thread".
A drop down box will appear. Now type in your
Town or City and click "Go".
3. Now you will have a list of everybody who's
posted a request in your Town / City. Note down the
names of the people who've posted requests and send
them a polite PM asking for a trade.
Now if you haven't already posted in the Mac
Trade thread, do so now, the reason being, so other
members, who may need Macs in the future, can go
through the same process.
This is however by no means always going to
work. You'll still have to rely on other people to
be generous and send you Macs and you may also find
nobody from your area has posted. The only other
option then is to go to a mates or family members
and scan from there if they live outside your UBR
but within the server limits. Another way is to go
out with a wireless laptop and see if you can get
into somebody's wireless network and bring up the
web interface of their cable modem and get a Mac
like that, although you'll need to check the UBR
address first to make sure it's compatible for
If you don't know your UBR click one of these
links to find it.
