The rabbit hole. As I follow down the path of others, I’ve come to another obstacle to cross. Synapse for Quartz Composer. And in order to use it will require me to get familiar with Xcode. I’ve avoided coding for the last 8 years, but I guess that’s going to have to come to an end if I want to make the kind of interfaces that I have in my head.

It’s a bit of a whirlwind, and following of directions that I don’t entirely understand. But, you just have to dive in right?

Now to figure out why Synapse crashes on startup…

It seems the program’s author only shows compatibility up to a certain version of OSX.  I’m going to try using my old Macbook which is using an older version of OSX.  Fingers crossed.

It seems my old laptop is too old.  It requires legacy versions of assorted software, that have eluded my searches.  All of which cannot be assured of successfully working if found.  Too much time suck without a firm promise of a payoff.  It’s time to rethink my strategy here.
