Also MAC OS(Pre-OSX OS that is, ver 8.9 I think)


8.5, 9.0 or 9.1 actually.

I started with 7.1.

Well that was nearly 20 years ago, when I had a Commodore Amiga 4000 and It had real MAC OS roms on a card and I had a 386sx chipped card in it too. 3 different OSes in one computer, all at the same time, no other computer has done that since then.

Well that was a combination of hardware & software and all 3 OSes would be operating at the same time and none were emulated either, plus I could operate a few 8 bit or a 16 bit ISA cards too.

Speaks passable Mi'kmaq.

Heavens, now where would you have learned that?


My Grandma was 1/2 Mi'kmaq and my brothers and I learned it as kids, but I haven't spoken it in 20 years.

I speak Double Dutch and Fluent Rubbish.



I can speak a little "Gobbledygook" but am much better at talking "Buncombe" though. Some say that I'm actually very good with the latter one and complement me by stating that at times I can talk "Utter Buncombe". ....I think I should have become a politician?

I never really thought of how many words I know, there are so many...Maybe 50000 roughly counted. Most original question I must say.
