Intaglio

Just discovered Intaglio this week, was really thrilled as to the fact I have over 20 years of drawings that I could no longer use on my last 2 macs. I had used macDraw pro all those years in my carpenter, furniture, and cabinetry business and was upset at the fact I had to keep old computers around just to be able to use the MacDraw Pro software. I found it fairly easy to learn since i had the m.d. background. Really relieved, Thanks,

Kenny…I’ve been using all of the old MacDraw style programs for 20 years, too. I think you will really like Intaglio. I’ve used it for the last 3 years. I works slightly different than the old software. Hey, but you didn’t lose all of that work…Neither did I.

I keep all of my old macs in storage. I’m pretty sure they will still be functional and just in case Intaglio software fades away or Intaglio drops the file import features.

I just can’t risk losing 20 years of drafting! I just hope I will still have a way to transfer the data… or print it…from those old computers.

It has been 5 years since I last rescued a couple of 200MB SCSCI drive Macs with Mac 10.3.9 so I might be full of it but here is how I might attempt to get data out of still running legacy Macs. First if they don’t start it is a $10 battery so don’t panic.

Presuming you are not talking about pre Mac OS 7.5, I believe you could share your whole HD on the old computer and plug in an Appletalk connector to either modem or printer port. Remember to set Appletalk to that port.

I used an Asante Micro Asanteprint. This is an Appletalk to ethernet conversion box that comes with a cable that does Appletalk so no Appletalk connectors needed. Everything benefits from a well running ethernet switch so plug the Asanteprint into your ethernet switch. If the old Mac used to do dial up internet you should be able to surf on Appletalk/Printer port. Very slow. Here is where my memory fails me? I can’t remember if I resorted to using OS-9 in Classic on 10.3.9 computer or if I just did it in 10.3.9? Anyway I remember seeing the shared legacy HD and I opened it on the newer machine and pulled the files the client wanted. We actually had a 2nd HD mounted and shared and I copied from it also. The legacy Mac I rescued was running 9.0.

hummmmm you know and old copy of Fetch (hopefully already on the old Mac) and an ethernet connection as described above could send files via port 21 to the newer Mac. Turn on “FTP” File Sharing on the Newer Mac and share a folder to hold the info. This is just in case the operating systems are too far apart to use each other to copy from. FTP is a great equalizer. If you used FTP it is your IP address on the newer machine the old machine would use for server name. Also your user name and password. I would probably live dangerously and use my Admin account that way there is never a problem with privileges.

Thanks Dale Josephson for the information.

Intaglio opens a bunch of my old files. I hope they keep this feature and/or at least keep a file converter script present for downloading.

I will soon start up the old machines and wipe the data and sell them. Funny…Those old Macs probably still work. They reside in closed metal storage cabinets in my shop. I might get a whole $25 each for them.

Maybe I can donate them to a tech institute for dissection! I find that many scientists and inventors tend to forget where things come from and get stuck on following the design build trends without taking a second look at the old designs…Sometimes there are really good, smart designs and old ideas that tend to be overlooked! - Dale
