Death Panther

Zeldman tries Panther on Good Friday, it eats his Mac:

My journey into Panther killed my Titanium Powerbook in stages. First came software failure: Apple applications such as Safari quit on launch; the machine could not find the network. Then came kernel panics. (This is where the machine reboots into a black and white Unix screen, spitting out Matrix-like error messages. To exit, you must type the appropriate Unix commands, which implies that you know what they are.) Finally, the machine would not boot, period. [more]

Also, later on, a rant about not being able to eject CDs, without mention of Open Firmware.

41 comments and trackbacks


So he's been using Macs for ten years and has missed the thing where you hold down the mouse button while turning the system on to eject disks? Lucky him. Pity he appears to never have cracked a manual in those ten years, either.

I have little respect for people who post lengthy rants about things they could have found out easily. This kind of article really annoys me.

I can only assume it was a temporary oversight... but yes, irks me: the eject-a-CD problem is easily Googleable.

>the eject-a-CD problem is easily Googleable.

Not easily Googleable if your computer won't boot, though.
