Update #50 - Oh, those grey days ...
September 20th, 2022

If you live in Central Europe, autumn starts at around this time of the year. Rainy, grey days that are best spent in front of your trusty old Macintosh. Perhaps even by watching some fun videos? Hence, we've updated our Fun & Comedy section.

For friends of the dark British humour, we've added a well-known scene from a certain Monty Python movie involving a Dark Knight. Then there's the iconic Super Bowl XXXVII Office Linebacker spot from Reebok. Also, various other videos got updated with better and higher-res versions, such as e.g. the amazing Winsongs 95.

Oh and don't miss out the obligatory video with cats being updated with part 2. Always good for a laugh!

Some cosmetic changes have taken place on Cornica as well. Our Guestbook now has an archive for older entries (got a bit crowded in there) and a few pixel margins have been corrected in the "modern theme".

Everyone - enjoy Cornica and your trusty old Macintosh!


Update #49 - When was the last time ...
August 26th 2022

... you received a CD-ROM in the mail? I'm asking because this new-on-Cornica AOL commercial from 1997 made me remember all those "30 free hours!" imprinted CD-ROMs we used to get from AOL back in the 90s. I'm sure all of you in Europe & North America remember. :-)

Also, user Aaron uploaded two original 1997 trailers he had downloaded about 25 years ago. Wow! CNN's original Empire / Jedi SE trailer as well as the '97 opening sketch for the Academy Awards. He also added the original 2003 Finding Nemo trailer. Way to go, Aaron!

Now do it like Aaron! Please look through your old HDDs, DVDs and share your Quicktime videos. We're not only taking on old videos. Feel free to convert newer stuff (within the scope of our content) or even take a new video of a concert you went to, the city you live or else! Let's keep the Quicktime spirit alive!


Update #48 - More videos & summer break
July 10th 2022

Summer is here and long-time Cornica users know what that means - things will wind down a bit. There will be updates but I'll give the MDD handling the videos some rest on hot summer days. :-)

This update features another pack of new (old) videos. Cornica user Ethan uploaded two retro Quicktime music videos (Taking Back Sunday; I'M not OK).

I've created a quick tutorial video aimed at Mac OS newbies, showing how to close all open Finder windows with a single command. Kind of a test-run for a Cornica exclusive series with tips for our favorite OS.

As for highlights among the added videos, there's the nefarious Copland demo at the Computer Chronicles. There's also an interesting 1996 report on CKS media agency using Mac Clones for their pre-press workflow. Ah, the clones! A Daystar Genesis MP was quite the computer of dreams back in the day, especially for those of us stuck on an old LC ...

As always, feel encouraged to upload your Quicktime videos! Whether it's old stuff you found or your original creation, we're happy to continue building the ultimate Quicktime archive on the net!
