My most heartfelt condolances my friend... I only recently laid to rest our massively dated Matrox Digisuite running Premiere 6.x... She was also a willing nag, who with a heartfelt thump and a kind word managed to chug along at real time for goin on 6 or better years.
Now we face another, similiar watershed. We've gone HEAVY on HD lately, and my poor Cinewave HD is not having the best time keeping up. With Pinnacle dropping support, and the inability to do any further system updates, etc, it was becoming clear that we need to move on. Today, the Cinewave just wouldn't play with this very ^%$&^%$#%$ expensive D5 deck, making things VERY difficult going into the weekend. I haven't known my Cinewave long enough even to name her, but alas her time may have come. So soon... So soon...
Enjoy that Adrenaline !

I feel for you, old buddy. I know how it is to have to give up on an old horse, cow, whatever the manner it is. I'm like Tim, I never throw anything away, it lingers there for me to go to and reminisce ocassionally. It is hard to give up an old love. I think that is what helps keep me and the wife together. After over 43 years I just would never be able to go out on my own alone. Heck, I'm pretty useless without her.
Hang in there bud and the pain will get easier to take in time.
