Looks as if my old Mac Performa 200 has finally died; there are only a few bars showing up on the screen and then nothing else happens, not even the “Sad Mac” icon. Most probably the motherboard ? The hard drive is still running fine. This is terrible.
And this is all Steve Jobs’s fault of course. Why can’t he built things that last longer than 20 years? I think he’s doing this on purpose. Tsk.
Anyway – I used to design books for Cambridge University Press on this machine. Language guides with loads of illustrations and complicated typography. And Mathematics books with many formulas. All done with Quark, version 3. And somehow it just worked.
I wonder if Apple still services those old machines? I’d really like to have it up and running again for some sort of sentimental reasons.
