Last night, my friends, a journey that began almost two years ago came to an end. My laptop is running 10.3.9. On October 31, 2006, my laptop crashed while updating from 10.3.2 to 10.3.9 and I was never able to get it to run 10.3 again. So, I was stuck with 10.2.8 for a long time. My HD broke last month and that ended the reign of 10.2.8 and I was forced to buy a new HD (120GB -- a big upgrade over 15GB). Last night, the new HD came, I installed it, and installed 10.3.2 (along with 9.2.1 for classic) and then finally upgraded to 10.3.9. So, my laptop was unofficially dead from October 31, 2006 to June 13, 2008 (Friday the 13th even, which is quite ironic if you think about it).

So, what this means is I'll be able to run a lot more than I could and now I can stop pestering people when ScummVM no longer works on 10.2.8. ;) And, I'm downloading XCode 1.5 which contains gcc3.3, so I'll be able to compile better than I was with gcc3.1.
