Good Day All,

First-off, Paul, please excuse this duplication of the e-mail I sent to you a 
few days ago---I tried your suggestion, with no luck whatsoever (sigh!)...

Anyway gang, I am the happy owner of a brand new iMac desk top computer from 
Apple, & all is well---save for one very important shortcoming: I can not run 
my copy of SD on this set-up!

Paul advised me that what I need is a "Windows emulator" in order to allow SD 
to play---but my son & I scoured the internet for at least an hour the other 
day looking for just such software, & came up empty-handed. Has anyone reading 
this successfully made SD run on their iMac...? If so, how'd you do it...? Did 
you find free downloadable software, & if so, where...? 

We located a couple of commercial outfits that advertised Window 
emulators...unfortunately, the cost of the emulator exceeded (in all cases) the 
original price of a brand new version of SD from Paul! (and I STILL wouldn't be 
able to run it on the iMac).

I love using SD. It's the only post-contest logging software that I'm 
comfortable with, & it does everything that I could possibly ask for.

Any & all suggestions welcomed at this time. Without SD, I can see the complete 
demise of formal contest entries from VE3CUI - VE3XZ...seriously! (not that 
it'd make any difference to contest sponsors, of course!).
