Re: Microsoft Word 5.1

Online, you can find disk images, for Word 5.1, Software has a 10 year copyright restriction, after 10 years, all software becomes public domain, that means its free to exchange. Personally I got away from Word, way back years ago. I still run my Mac OS using 8.6, and it still it appears to have mor...

Re: Which software you use to monitor CPU temperature?

Goodday, I have posted here several times before, but been shouted down for being out of touch, all the time, with Apple kit. So here is my professional response, I don't use any Software developed program to regularly monitor my Power PC, it runs cool, seldom exceeds 30 degrees, if I do need to tes...

Re: Adobe Persuasion 4

Turbolad is telling you straight. Adobe are real tight on warez spiffing. I believe you, but we got two aspects to the case. If you bought a complete pack, you would have all the disks that match: yer its that bad, one disk out of serial, and the install goes awol. The adobe people also have a pay p...

Re: Adobe Persuasion 4

If its a presentation file you need to read, as a one off, there is a slight chance in three places. One, Adobe offer some kind of translation service, themselves. Two, Google translate, doc services, that might be able to get the presentation into something more common, like jpeg or png. Three, a s...

I don't know too much about the specifics of the application, Adobe persuasion, but what little I do know about the Adobe recent devs, has not been too good.

Re: Macbook Pro keeps restarting and QuickTime Player opening

Goodday Turboladdade, Sure, X has a different mechanism in operation to 9, and some version of X of course run with what you know to be Classic, and what is in effect, Mac OS.

Re: Macbook Pro keeps restarting and QuickTime Player opening

And as an adendum, I got to say, you MUST do a Quicktime uninstall first, and then do a Quicktime install over, when you update, does that sound the most likely thing you altered before the troubles began? Preram battery check is a routine event, after usually 3 years of not knowing about its existe...

Re: Macbook Pro keeps restarting and QuickTime Player opening

Well, you clearly have a display crash, that is the first observation. The second point to notice, is the reappearance of the screen, with the setting in a different state, ie programs closed, and quicktime play open. You say its a once a week occurance, roughly? First off, it would be sensible to d...
