Burning Question
« on: January 05, 2018, 08:49:14 AM »
Occasionally, I wonder. Hmmm.

Is it Mac OS 9 Lives… as in: She lives down by the seashore? Or is it Mac OS 9 Lives… as in: We’re all living our lives as best as humanly possible?

Perhaps a silly sophomoric, mundane question to some… yet consider an attempt to envision or possibly “capture” a certain “essence” or je ne sais quoi in a logo design for a particular application… or even within a normal/general verbal conversation. Really, how do you say it? Should there be a poll, or should it just be left to a sliding, variable personal preference?

“No deBongo, you’ve got it all wrong… it’s French in origin, it’s pronounced le-vaaze!”

Or is it simply just the first rule of MacOS9Lives…? "You doan talkabout no MacOS9Lives, ya see?"

Of course I posted this on the HELP BOARD!

Well, of course... there is always that!  Why am I not surprised?

 -afro- I'm pretty sure it's just a poor translation to English. Someone use to an i sounding like "ee" just miswrote it when they heard "Mac OS 9 Leaves"

We all just like to pretend it never LEFT.
