Re: Register Your Interest in a Forward Move

I count ±81 seats listed above. The numbers to speculate on is what percentage of total PC users do these 81 seats represent, and how many users are required to make a current OS comaptible re-write economically feasible?

Re: Life after/beyond PowerCadd?

Looking at the Ilexsoft.com web site for High Design, I am impressed that they are already running software that is compatible with Apple's new M chip. Makes me wonder if Todd Stanley exaggerates both the difficulty of translating PowerCadd to current Mac OS compatibility, or the difficulty of handi...

Re: Clarification-the future of PowerCadd

It is somewhat reassuring that the future of WildTools is being thought about. But currently, WildTools is dependent on PC. Can they be separated in the near future? I too have suggested that the users of PC become the owners of PC- sort of a software cooperative. One big question- how many of us cu...

Re: Life after/beyond PowerCadd?

Alfred, the problem with 32 bit Powercadd isn’t PC or WildTools. The problem is intractable progress. The 2020 TurboTax works with Mojave, but nothing older. Next year’s TurboTax will require Catalina or newer. Eventually Safari will likely be obsolete under Mojave, along with other stuff. It’s only...

Re: Life after/beyond PowerCadd?

I haven't really thought this out completely, but it occured to me that PowerCadd ought to become a user owned cooperative. I am wondering if all PC users- (I have no idea what the numbers are) could chip in some amount of money to pay Todd Stanley for the program, and then possibly hire a few good ...

Re: Clarification-the future of PowerCadd

The only potential option I see is that the new M1 iMacs may be so blazingly fast that running Mojave under Parallels (or the other virtulization software) is feasible, if overly complicated. Todd Stanley, its time to speak up with the full truth of what is happening or what is not happening.

Re: What do you need?

Add me to PC and WT running 64 bit Big Sur and M-1 chip. Every year TurboTax only runs on an OS 2 years old or newer. I have been juggling operating systems for years now, and would like to stop the clown act.

Re: COVID Vaccine Trial

Do they eventually reveal to you just what they injected into your arm?
