El Capitan

I wrote El Crapitan but the spell checker changed it. Just wanted to keep the blog warm with another gripe about Apple. Since the upgrade, which I performed a couple of weeks ago, mail now crashes every few minutes (with a certain IMAP account enabled) and my Epson DX5000 scanner no longer works (no driver).

I’ve written before about how bad I think built-in obsolesence is, and this goes back to changing Pages so it would no longer open files from the previous version. Heck, I’ve got ClarisWorks files that my Dad wrote that I want to open. Compatibility should last a generation and not on the short (max years) timescales fashionable today.

So I will have to get the scanner working on Centos 7 or Windows 10.
