  1. Your a bit late MDN, this has been out for days.

    MDN takes off for the week end, sometimes they are here. But most weekends they are gone.

    What’s unusual is what the heck are they doing up at 12:40 AM on a Monday morning?

    Off to a real early start!!


  2. Nightowl: it’s teatime in Oz, lunchtime in Asia and breakfast time Monday in Europe now, so it’s a good idea to be up and ready to post if you want to be “on the ball” with Mac news.

  3. I wish they’d give more details on these updates. What did they do to DVD Player? Can’t find a mention anywhere.

    (When is Airport Express coming for it!?)

  4. I can’t update! I can’t update. I’m running Mac OS 9 om my Performa 600. I feels really slow so I dowloaded this update… I can’t update. My printer is dead. I have paper but I can’t update. What to do?

  5. I’m having the same problem. I tried to update DOS 6.22 and it gives me the error:

    “Your computer is shit. Please buy a real OS.”

    What does this mean? I thought MS-DOS was the industry standard?

  6. I was really hoping this update would of fixed the page load problem with Safari.
    I am still having Safari tell me that a site cannot be found on the first try, and then always succeeds on the second.

  7. “We should start calling this site Mac Every Three Days News …”

    It was the weekend, give them a break!
    It’s no secret MDN does little to no updates on the weekend.
