Default Things that make you say BAH HUMBUG!

Excuse me while I rant a bit.....

I'm having computer problems up the whazooo

All my old art is in apple macintosh format. But the only imac I have access to has had this weird quirk, the system disk that came with the computer doesn't work on the machine. The disk is OS 9.0 while the minimum the imac will take is OS9.04. And of course I didn't notice this until it was too late to get a exchange. No biggie... I'll just buy a new system disk when I have trouble right? I mean why buy a system disk when it will go out of date before I need it and buy another when they upgrade the system?

well... that is what I thought. That is how it worked since the mid 80's. But not now! They IMPROVED IT. (sarcasm). The new operating system (OS X) is incompatible with the old system. It has to run the old system in emulator mode to run older programs. Unfortunately.... the minimum system OS X understands is OS 9.2!!!!! So Now I got a system that is incompatible with everything I got!!!!! And no way to go back!!!

FRACK!

Have you seen this? I don't know if it will convert os9 graphics to osx, but it's worth looking in to...

I appreciate you looking up the info. I didn't know that Graphic Converter is now OSX compatible. I have earlier versions of it and it really is a standard for converting graphics. Its the Mac equivalent of IrfanView for PCs.

I'll have to get that program as soon as I get the imac up again. I actually called Apple and paid for an OS9 disk. It sucks to pay more money... but there is no other real option.

Oh well....

I've actually had a pretty good record up till now. I do like how they have a tendency to have less conflicts than windows.

I guess this must be a huge shift in the internal workings of the OS. This program really should be bundled with the previous OS since it is so important for running old programs. It only costs pennies to include it.

But then they'd loose out on the money from people having to buy the program seperately.
