how are ye doin', ol' friend of mine?
Remember me, maybe?
Having once given the original name assumption for that very proggie CTM (when it was not even born) in... well... archaic forum times, https://forums.comodo.com/which-product-do-you-want-comodo-to-develop-next/which-product-to-develop-next-t125.0.html;msg100884#msg100884
I'm really glad to see how many of those nowadays nerds, geeks and noobs, Comodo freaks etc.
are kneeling down to see that very prog being revived.
Some days after my initial assumption I recognized, that Apple now had used the same term for a similar program they had developed. I thought they obviously had stolen the name from our forum. Guess... I dared not speaking it out loud...
Just a few days later I found out that they officially dated back the release of the Apple Time Machine ... well ... back in time?
Now - as an afterthought? - it's release day was supposed to have been the very day before I posted my name proposal here at the Comodo forum. I don't really remember, where I read about this, maybe on Wikipedia, but might as well have been on an official Apple site...
ONE DAY pre-dated, after weeks, this I remember thus far.
One should really care about such things... me(now)thinks.
Rest assured: It is NOT (you know me that much from old times, I guess) that I'd ever want money from Apple.
I'm still MorphOS REBOL, as you knew me then...
But I am rather sure they stole the name from us THEN, and used it for a proggie they'd already developed.
And now, looking back on the presumed release date of that 10.5 Apple OS...
wtf. I am just sad. A heavy-weight commercial company. Apple.
I can only state that neither THEN nor NOW I'd ever be(en) an Apple user...
Just to confirm my statement: No one THEN (here at our forum) had ever mentioned that there was already another Prog (ct. of APPLE) going by that very name.
I am rather sure: someone would have flamed me.
Also interesting (maybe) :
APPLE seems to never ever have accused COMODO for having used / using the name TIME MACHINE for a very similar kind of program...
From where did this name erupt in my mind?
Well, let me tell ya. It was that very old movie "Time Machine" with all those Morlocks etc. I'd seen when being a child. It was one of my favourite movies in the Seventies.
Please forgive me. My nowadays capabilities of handling the English tongue have to be called: horrible. I did not post for the last two years.
Greetings from an old German.
Hope you get it.
And thanks for still being Melih.
Have a fine beer with me one day? (We promised eachother long time ago...)
