You could partition your MBP drive to maintain 2 OSes on the same machine, or use a bootable external drive.

I use both of these options:
My MBP has 2 partitions.
I have a small external for the latest OS to check them it a bit before updating the MBP.

Re: Movies

I see more flicks via streaming, like Netflix, so I'm not risking big bucks. But your point is well taken.

By the way, original Zoolander RULES! "But why male models?"

Re: Movies

I stopped looking at reviews for movies I'm interested in. So many times I almost didn't go see something because the reviews weren't that good, and yet I ended up enjoying it. And vice versa. Now I just like to be surprised . I like being surprised too, so I generally only read reviews after I've ...

Re: Max update issue?

Max 7.2 fixed a serious problem I had with max 7.1 loading my presets (as well as the M4L Building Tools presets) for the Max Api SendsXnodes wrong.

Quite happy (& relieved) about that!

Re: Ideas you keep returning to, but can't seem to finish

Interesting issues you bring up. Using old material I like the idea that I have "themes", compositions that I return to. What exactly is is about recycling your material "drains the creativity"? Maybe you could commit to "finishing them" with greater production values & then lay them to rest. "Back ...
