The story about the fonts is funny, I've had my own problems with Bitstream fonts in Windows, I think 3.0? They would work fine until I needed to desperately print a document and then it would blow up and you couldn't just highlight everything and select a different font, oh no, you had to go through a nightmare scenario to get things working. I stopped using Bitstream after a couple of those wonderful 'features'.
I love your user who thought the 'free' fonts were cool, another hipster doofus but they do keep us employed.
An Amiga 3000, damn that brings back memories although the latest version of the Amiga I used was, I believe, a 2500. I remember that the 3000 required some massaging to get a toaster working with it. The Amiga's O/S was awesome. I liked being able to grab the top of the screen and bang, a new instance of Amiga DOS. Great machines, I wonder what it would cost to get a running one?
I'd really enjoy editing a document 2000' long, damn, I could imagine making a mistake, hitting print and going to get a cup of coffee and coming back to a mountain of paper.
I didn't realize MS had hosed, and blatantly I might add, Apple's code, too funny. I remember in Windows NT 3.1 getting OS2 error messages and thought that was funny.
I finally powered up my FreeMac and it is already running OSX! I don't know which one, it looked like the version 9 and older screen so maybe the previous user had done something, the current owner said it was majorly screwed up but I plugged it into a network port and was on the Internet without doing anything. I'll get the specs and maybe you can tell me what the best thing I can do to it. I've got different types of memory coming out of my ears so I probably have some that will work with it. I saw some 1mb SIMMS the other day and had to laugh; I remember when 4mb was hot s**t back in the day.
I'm still swamped but maybe lunch at the end of this month or September???
I'm sorry to hear you had an infarction, man, that is some scary stuff right there. You've made it 16 years so I hope things are good from here on out. A friend of mine who was in perfect shape had a mild heart attack, he almost didn't go to the hospital; good thing he did and now he's mellowed out and is supposedly doing good. I take my blood pressure meds like clockwork abd my blood pressure is always 120/80 which is great considering my mom had serious hypertension. One time my BP spiked to almost 200, it took them a week of me in the hospital for them to come up with the meds to control it. Thank God for Doctors and the scientific method!!!
