iMovie '08 is a steaming pile of crap.

Go download iMovie HD 6 from Apple.

Does it import MPEG-2 though? I thought it didn't.

What no one is waxing nostalgic for a Lisa or A/UX box, ???

Never had one, so I can't miss it. I do miss the NeXT stuff I gave johnny k sometimes. And I definitely miss my Apple //e and IIc.

I used to have a couple of Lisa's, but to say that they were stable or made of hight quality? No.

Same for A/UX, used to have a client (bank) that ran a Workgroup Server 95, at some point we had an engineer sitting next to it, to reset it and to write down in a log book when it hung.

To sue Apple.

Hideously Unnatural
We had various Quadra 950's running Appleshare, and then Appleshare IP for file sharing for the graphics department. At some point we got a WGS 95 with A/UX, and it was constantly panicing. Apple brought in engineers to try and fix it, but they never could. They ultimately blamed it on some interaction with the Conley RAIDs we were using. Those were amazing - 400MB full-size full-height SCSI drives, five of them with an integrated hardware RAID card. I was given one off of the scrap pile years later, along with said WGS 95's and the install disks for A/UX. I had intended on bringing one of those monsters back to life for the sole reason of running A/UX on it, but I came to my senses. Now all I have left is the install disks.

In America, the only respectable form of socialism is socialism for the rich.
I get out the Newton MP2k every so often, boot it up, run the web server, flip through old notes, copy and paste some text for nostalgia's sake.

What a journey.
I have to say, that I always loved the look of those machines.

My Newton's staying in its box more and more, since I got Einstein. When you can emulate the machine on your Mac, the incentive to get the real thing fired up and functional diminishes markedly.

My IS director was one one of the engineers that Apple flew around the country getting WGS with AU/X running. He was one of the few who actualy understood the damn things.

I wondered why the key-bindings went kerbluey for WOW.

10.5.6 is a clusterfuck.

There's allegedly a fix for WoW. Post it here in a sec.

Fix for Dvorak keyboard on Mac OS X 10.5.6 and WoW: (from here)

/console synchronizeBindings 0 

You can also put 

set synchronizeBindings "0" 

in your config.wtf or whatever it's called. 

The old keybindings are saved in a file that's got .old at the end of it. I suggest modifying your config.wtf, then restoring the OLD settings (the good ones) on the windows machine. It worked for me. It's the best I can come up with for now.

I don't use dvorak; I just remembered seeing the fix, and posted it for Tony.
