New trick for an old dog

Our ten year old MacBook gets a new job. Having spent the first half of it’s life as our main computer, then a number of years as our daughter’s homework machine, the white MacBook was no longer able to run the programmes Em needed and retired to the back of the cupboard. 

Now it’s back! Happily running an older version of OpenCPN and chatting happily to the AIS in the wheelhouse it tells us where we are and who is around us on the water. Never too old to learn. 

Wat doe je met je oude laptop als je dochter het niet eens meer wil? 

Het is gelukt om deze tien jaar oude MacBook aan de AIS te koppelen en op de digitale kaarten van Rijkswaterstaat onze positie en de gegevens van de schepen om ons heen weer te geven.
