DOS 3.3P varies the data prologue per file, based on both the filename length and the last non-space character. WHICH IS COMPLETELY INSANE

Thank you to all the Open Apple well-wishers. It’s nice to hear people still love the show.

My apologjes for not addressing this sooner but I kept hoping this would be a short term thing or that I could make it work. There’s still one more show “in the can” from earlier this year that I am working on editing whenever I can and I’m hopeful to get that out soon. Thanks.

This is mostly my fault. My wife has been experiencing profound medical issues for nearly two years, that require intensive care taking and I just don’t have the energy or resources to be able to give Open Apple the attention it deserves, so it’s on hiatus until further notice.

Finally reaching the point where my irritation with macOS Mojave exceeds my lazy entropy and I end up spending a weekend upgrading back to High Sierra.

Dear autocorrect: I’m fairly certain I’ve never typed “Philip Sofia Loren” before so I’m mystified why you think I meant that instead of “philosophical”.

US Copyright law is cumbersome, outdated and stupidly easy to abuse, and change has been slow and frustrating but this is a small step in the right direction:

Also, my iMac has developed an... interesting... relationship with my external BluRay player since I upgraded, i.e. macOS refuses to acknowledge the drive's existence, though Toast and dbPoweramp can see it. Just not Disk Utility. And only Toast can eject a disc now... odd.

Apparently "Force Quit" is the new way to close apps in macOS Mojave, as it is by far the most common method I find myself using since upgrading.

I don’t recall Bob saying anything to that effect, but he apparently still has all or most of the On Three software and sources, etc somewhere in his basement.

“Core principles”? Like caging other people’s children?

You put other people’s children in cages. Your “core principles” are as worthless as your empty promises.
