What ever happened to the Macintosh version? Did you get fed up working with Richard Bannister or was he the one that stopped porting it for some reason? I have always been curious about that.

I used to be a really huge fan of Macintosh computers before Mac OS X. I was quite literally obsessed with them. In 9th grade I discovered those emulators, and went to emuscene all the time over dialup modem. I just remember Richard being so rude and obtuse... Really making it a point to show how much smarter he is than a 9th grader... I don't know how anyone could ever get along with someone like that. In later years I used OTX to get rid of his shareware nag screens. I don't know hardly anything about PowerPC assembly language and never did share how to do that with anyone, but it was E-Z and very redeeming.

Well, yes. Unfortunately, there was no substitute for a MacOS port.
