Subject: Services for the Disabled

Greetings Maxers,

 To all who have replied to me regarding the services for the disabled.
Thank you for your input. I have received a flood of messages and haven't
had the time to reply yet as I am on holiday at the cabin (yes I am a
computer geek and I did bring my Mac with me to the cabin). Any other input
is still appreciated however, and I'll try to reply to all sometime next

Thanks again,

Christopher Murtagh

**check out there is a plug
for MAX there, and soon to be one for the I-Cube.

Salut 'Maxers',

 Pour toute les usagers francophones qui ont besoin d'aide avec le listserv
MAX, vous pouvez me demander en fran=E7ais. Mon fran=E7ais est loin d'=EAtre
parfait (tr=E8s loin m=EAme), mais je vais essayer de vous aider dans votre
langue si possible. S.V.P. notez c'est pour les questions du listserv MAX
(=E0 - moi) et non du logiciel MAX

P.S. J'esp=E8re que ces accents vont marcher (ils marchent bien avec

(My ears are burning...)

Well, my old SE/30 was fine for MAX 3.0 (running in parallel with Vision
2.0.8, with SMPTE lock to a couple of ADAT's via SMPTE); I recorded my
entire album with it.

Zip drives are a bit odd SCSI-wise, but I would guardedly expect this to
work. You can probably install MAX on the Zip cartridge, but the
installation would also be keyed to the boot volume (presumably, the
SE/30's internal HD) so the Zip-based installation would not be portable.

If the CP bombs out and and denies you any use of your copy of MAX, it's
not my fault, of course.

My SE/30 was MODE32'd under 7.0.1 (I had 20MB in it) and I had no problems

I would at least like to hear some official word from Opcode on what their
relationship to MAX is. It would at least clarify whether we in the UK
should bother with Opcode and/or their UK distributor-of-the-week at all,
or just mail-order our upgrades direct from the US.

(Those of us who are upgrading at all, that is.)
