Apple Mac OS X News<br><br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p> The original Mac OS began with a universe bound by 64K of RAM, one 400K floppy drive and a 9" black and white screen. The metaphor of "desktop" for what you saw when you started up worked wonderfully. Even the arrival of hard disks didnít at first overwhelm the metaphor. Strains inevitably began to show though -- inevitable because local computational power, storage space, and network access were growing far faster than screen real estate ever could.<p><hr></blockquote><p>Guess I need to change my user name to 64k_Mac.<br><br>
Nah, just stick with 128. I was going to change mine from "bdog" to "Bdog" but I would have to make a new account, wich I DON'T want to do since I have a bit of posts under this name, and then set all the prefs back up, ect, ect.<br><br>--John Bailey( [color:red]Bdog</font color=red> )<br><br>Email Me ---> email@example.com

Hmmm....s'pose you're right.<br><br>OTOH, how about 64k_Apple IIe? Nah, I bought an 80 col. card with it so I had 128k at the start. 48k_][+? Nah, that's further from home.<br><br>Yer rite. Think I'll just stick to the present handle. That way I can avoid rereading all my old posts. <br><br>
