    Sorry had no idea where to post this cause I'm acctually looking for a jpeg or gif(or whatever for that matter) of the good ol Spinning Beach Ball of Doom. The higher the res the better, but even a image of the acutal ball on the screen will work.

    So any ideas where I can find an image or anyone have one?

    I've tried doing some screen captures, but it never grabs the beach ball since its a mouse icon.

    I actually like the ball... it triggers some pretty intense 70's flashbacks.

    I've attached a PNG of the thing in its cycles. Is this what you wanted?

    Oh man, I never thought of booting into OS9 and using ResEdit! How easy! And ResEdit was my main tool years ago. I must be growing old.

    Actually, I didn't use ResEdit, I used the new MightyMouse from Unsanity. That way it was a simple drag-and-drop.

    Erm... we already HAVE Puma. 10.0 was Puma :). 10.1 was Cheetah, and 10.2 is Jaguar.

    Instructions for placing a .diff file in place of your pinwhell(I have the wavewait wait cursor,blue droplet animation)



    ?In the terminal:

    cp /System/Library/Frameworks/ApplicationServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/CoreGraphics.framework/Versions/A/CoreGraphics CoreGraphics.bak

    (press enter)

    cp CoreGraphics.bak CoreGraphics.new

    (press enter)

    patch CoreGraphics.new < (drag WaveWait.diff into terminal. Don't forget the space ie < WaveWait.diff)

    (press enter)

    sudo cp CoreGraphics.new /System/Library/Frameworks/ApplicationServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/CoreGraphics.framework/Versions/A/CoreGraphics

    (press enter)

    (restart)




    Look for "WaveWait.diff" on google and you should be able to find the cursor animation.

    hope you have fun, it looks amazingly better than the pinwhell.
