Folks, I administer a database of heritage buildings... part of my job involves data import when a new area is added to our database.

The db is MS SQL with a java front-end.

The other day my colleague came running ...he had a heap of disks he could not read that contain a study of historic buildings for a new area coming into our database, written in 1989.

Of course they were Mac 800kb disks!!!! The files were Macwrite II.

I amazed him by simply opening them and saving them as Word (grrrr) files.

I knew I had kept my old Macs for a reason!!

In fact my LC475 (running System 7.1) has Macrite Pro and Word 5.1, ClarisWorks on board.

Of course we can easily purchase Dataviz translators for Windows to do the translations but doing them on the Mac was far more fun!!!
