Re: Mathematica 8 and Alpha integration....

In reply to my own post:

I was helped out by Scott Kruger of WRI Tech Support. He got me to do a clean reinstall of Mathematica 8 and that corrected the free form input problems I had.

I am methodically running through some of the great new functions in 8. I will be reporting bugs to WRI and giving MathGroup a heads up to some of the more surprising bugs as I find them and hopefully find fixes.

I can crash my system spectacularly requiring a power down and reboot almost at will running Texture[] examples from the documentation even after the reinstall.


Cheers & thanks very much to Scott ....  Syd
