Re: Daily iPhone chess programs releases

I actually feel sad to see that Chess Tiger is now a free app. Has Mr. Theron give up hope? It is a very nice program, no question about it. But what will be the driving force for him to make the program better? I am a happy customer, just glad that I paid for it before.

How dares he?? :)

I never had a communication problem with him before or any other chess programmer whose program I have purchased. These guys are pros whose customer service practices the big companies should study and learn.

However, if it's a 400 or 800 KB floppy, a PC floppy drive is physically incapable of reading it. ( explanation ) If you're really adventurous, a product called KyroFlux claims to be able to help. I have no experience with it. (EDIT: Also, it costs more than 65 USD, so I guess that was a poor sugge...

Re: How to repair a floppy disk? - OT

That is exactly what I needed! Thank you very much.

The disk drive is running like crazy so either the drive is gone or I have a bad disk. No matter what running Mac OS 7.5 was a great joy.
