Hello, world,

The computer driving my interactive video installation at What It Is is, sadly, fried. Documentation on the installation is here:

We don't have a replacement. What we had was an early Intel-processor MacBook with 2G memory, not outrageously powerful, but capable of running the software I have uploaded here:

If anyone could spare a Mac or Windows PC capable of running this from now until June 8, please let me know. An *nix box would probably work too, but I have no experience running Processing/video capture on those beasts. I'll treat it with care and chewy toys, and owe you bigtime.

Heya Paul. What fried on the computer? I had an old computer I was
using for an installation a few years ago that died midway through the
show's run. Wouldn't turn on or anything, but I eventually figured out
that the power supply kept overheating and was basically dead. So I
installed a new power supply for like $30 and it continues to run
well, years later. So maybe try that?
