Update #67 - Spring is finally here!
April 11th, 2024

Pushing this update while I'm out in the April sun, enjoying the first rays of spring sun while typing this update on my trusty PowerBook Pismo in BBedit 6.0. This would be an ideal introduction to promoting some laptop / Pismo related new video on Cornica, wouldn't it? Unfortunately, no such videos with this update! (but maybe you've got something to share?)

We do, however, have a lot of other interesting videos, starting with an excerpt from a 1990 Computer Chronicles episode featuring the new low cost Macs of the day!

For fans of The 8-Bit Guy, we've added videos of him restoring beige Apple ADB keyboards to their former glory and a really informative piece on how Vintage game controllers work.

If you're into producing music on your old Mac, and I know some of you are, you may like to watch our latest entry to the music category - Pro Tools HD Music Production from 2002.

Last but not least, everybody's favorite Cornica category movie trailers got a bunch of new entries thanks to our top uploader HolidayPack. These are: Cars, A Knight's Tale, Passion of Christ, Grizzly Man, 50 First Dates and The Devil Wears Prada (Merryl Streep's role reminds me of a former colleague at my ex-workplace ...)

Before you're off to the movies, let me announce that I'll likely do some "spring cleaning" on Cornica in the next 2-3 weeks which may lead to (very) temporary unavailability. If you should run into it while browsing Cornica - I'm sorry! It won't last long.

With that out of the way, everybody have a great time with Macs (PCs, Amigas, Atari) and don't forget: Quicktime never dies!.

Update #66 - Tutorials, fun, games and history
March 7th, 2024

How are ya'll doing? #Marchintosh is upon us again and we've been seeing some interesting projects surface. Of course, many of us (inluding yours truly!) use our old Macs all year long. Some among us use them even as daily drivers. Talk about heroes!

While not daily, Cornica also keeps getting updates all year long - this time with a focus on some new entries for our fun & comedy section. We've got two videos of one of the web's original pranksters, french Remi Gaillard. Watch him do Pac-Man and Mario Kart in real-life!

Also, a quicktime movie of the gift wrapping scene from Love Actually has been added. And while technically a commercial, Air Liberté's The Stewardess is fun to watch too!

As for games, Cornica user HolidayPack shared trailers for Chaos, MDK and Galapagos with us. There's also a video of a new (!) World Builder game in development, in which the author talks about his plans.

For those of you interested in history and/or Japan, we now have a 1968 documentary A Day in Tokyo in our history section. Fun watching!

Last but not least, two new videos by the 8-Bit Guy have been added to tutorials - him restoring an Apple A1048 Keyboard and recapping a Macintosh LC II. Enjoy the spring time with your Macs and don't forget: Quicktime never dies!.

Update #65 - Looking ahead
February 21st, 2024

This update comes much belated. Unfortunately, an issue prevented me from working on Cornica earlier. Things are fine now and hence we see our first update for 2024! Sorry to everybody waiting for new content, let's hope the rest of the year will be different!

Anyway, we're kicking off 2024 with some great new videos. User snes uploaded a video with details of the Project 2004 challenge he's untertaking. He'd love to have others joining in!

User Ethan took a video tutorial on how to scrobble Last.fm from your PPC OSX machine. Way to go Ethan!!

If you're into retro gaming (and who visiting Cornica isn't?), user HolidayPack uploaded six original Sierra mid 90's Quicktime trailers for unforgettable games such as Phantasmagoria, Shivers, Space Quest 6, Torin's Passage, The Beast Within: A Gabriel Knight Mystery or Trophy Bass. Enjoy the time travel!

Last but not least, if you've watched British TV during the 80's, this commercial here might bring back some memories.

Everybody, enjoy your classic (or emulated) Macintoshes! And don't forget - Quicktime never dies!

Update #64 - Christmas & New Year update
December 31th, 2023

Happy New Year! Have some great days to spend with the family and to unwind and simply live!

And how to do that better than booting that old computer of yours and watching some Quicktime videos while sipping on your favorite drink? We've got the perfect present for you ... :-)

Two videos of important "Apple moments" have been added: Steve Jobs unveiling the Mac 128k and the funeral for Mac OS in 2002.

Our top uploader HolidayPack also provided us with new videos for our history section, be it about the Hale-Bopp comet (remember?), Kurt Cobain's death or the Rescue of baby Jessica.

My personal favorite with this update is Dave Dries' rendered 1984 arcade animation that you'll find in our games section. And we've added another video from the 8-Bit Guy, this time the review for the Mini Amiga500 that was released earlier this year.

This is the final update for 2023. We'll be back in 2024 for more Quicktime glory, so don't forget to bookmark Cornica. And don't forget: Quicktime never dies!

Update #63 - Bugs, games, apps & the 8-Bit Guy
December 3rd, 2023

Quite some topics to cover - let's start! If you've visited Cornica using Netscape 3 or 4 during the last week, you probably noticed video pages not loading properly - that bug has been squashed and Netscape users can now happily watch Quicktime videos again!

As for other exciting news, YouTuber 8-Bit Guy has allowed us to host some of his excellent videos on Cornica. So you can watch retro brighting your 68k Mac from the very computer. Talk about excitement here! The first of his videos is about the restoration of an Apple IIc Plus. More to follow soon!

There's also a handful of new game trailers such as Headline Harry, Rome: Total War, Command & Conquer Generals, Labyrinth of Time as well as the intro from Inherit the Earth - all uploaded by user HolidayPack.

Thanks to his efforts, our Mac Applications category keeps growing too. Quicktime trailers for DiVA Videoshop, Mathematica 2.0, Stratavision 3D, Compton's Encyclopedia and the Quicktime Hypercard Toolkit have been added.

Before we end this post, a little notice - I'll do some changes to Cornica's technical underpinnings soon. We may be unavailable for an hour or two at one point. Don't worry when that happens - we'll be back in old glory! :-)

And don't forget: Quicktime never dies!

Update #62 - Fun finds & cool uploads
November 12th, 2023

While rummaging through the contents of my old iMac G3's HDD I discovered a piece I had downloaded 20 years ago - a talented group of singers performing 90's Nintendo game sounds acapella. Great one - watching recommended!

Speaking of iMac G3's, Cornica now has Apple's video comparison of setting up the iMac G3 vs. a HP Pavillion. Guess who's the winner ...

More content for the Apple afficionados among you: I've added the video excerpt of what appears to be an old Apple Seminar on the brand as well as Jonathan Ive commenting on the design of the 20th Anniversary Mac.

And our top-uploader HolidayPack added two rather rare Apple commercials - PowerBook - Right Here In The Village and an Oliver Stone Apple Ad to Cornica. Thank you very much!

If you wanna be as cool & hip as HolidayPack (or nerdy, depending on your preference :-) ) upload your Quicktime treasures to Cornica too! And don't forget: Quicktime never dies!
