Photos Of Writer Claude M. Bristol

Ah, the quantum waves do their thing today!

Out of the blue, I remembered that someone told me several months ago he had seen a photo of Claude M. Bristol — the author of the classic, The Magic of Believing — online but couldn’t remember where.

Back then, I checked both Google and Bing and still came up empty (it’s a search I would do periodically).

Something told me to go check Bing today, And, um, Bingo!

Video: Nook Touch Running Classic Mac OS

Here it is, the proof everyone needed to see (no audio):

Showing how the mac works on the nook. It has a few quirks, but overall it’s pretty neat. I even had Myst running the other day. I figured out eventually.. (after I made the video) that if the command key is pressed in, you can’t type anything in a game or application. Also if you notice in the darts and lemmings, the contrast is low. This can be adjusted but it takes a minute of sporadic tapping to bring up the contrast settings. This wasn’t happening in the old version of NoRefresh. Anyways, mac on a nook!
