Hello Anny and Everyone!
I don't know the answer to that yet, Anny, since Todd is coming  
Tuesday afternoon and we have to talk through what can and can't be  

If we can get a version that works for older operating systems that  
will be great, but there is no question that if you were running Mac  
OS X you would have more features in SignBank...

Any old version we can create will be more limited, because Mac OS X  
has more possibilities...

So that is why, if you were willing to upgrade to Mac OS X, it would  
be to your advantage...With Mac OS X, you can access Mac OS 9  
programs from the computer you have right sure to back all  
your files up, by placing them on a separate hard drive. Then install  
Mac OS X, and then once it is running, you can install all your old  
Mac OS 9 software in the Mac Classic section of the computer and you  
have not lost anything...but gained a modern operating system...and a  
better version of SignBank!

On the other hand, it is a lot of work to I will inform  
you on Wednesday what Todd and I accomplished regarding the old  

Thanks for your patience -

Val ;-)
