Yes, that's my plan.
Just let the system change the date (correctly) by itself.
Not a 24/7 problem, only an issue when the PRAM battery is changed,
and if I clip another PRAM voltage source on while doing this, the date should remain.
Otherwise, iterate the year rollover to get to the correct year.
So I've 'downgraded' the problem from a future problem to a future annoyance !
But to answer your question,
I use my Mac SE's and Powerbook 145b's for stock analysis and investment tracking.
It's not just a novelty thing, but a real tool, and I'm not much interested in upgrading.
For example, I did a TAO TE CHING translation on them,
and developed a definition of Investment Risk showing that
Risk and Reward are INVERSELY proportional !
Luminaries such as Scheinman and John Bogle waffle on the true definition of stock market risk.
(approx. 20 pages - ask me for a copy, if you are interested in such things)
It might be interesting to query Apple about this,
phrasing the question as 'What would it require to ...' just to see their response.
It can't be rocket science to fix this.
But thanks for your reply.
I appreciate your input.
So I owe a lot to my OS 7.1 computers.
I have a large stock of them for repair parts,
and plan to use them until the last bolt falls out of the last working unit.
