Antivirus software may report the file "Entertainment:Fun Stuff:No Vowels II:No Vowels II" as an "NVP Trojan Horse", but it's just a reversible April Fool's prank that prevents vowels from being typed. It was classified as a Trojan horse when disguised versions were maliciously distributed without a means of reversing them.

Norton also reports that the following files appear to be damaged:

Utilities:Network:NavCom :NavCom
Utilities:Network:NavCom :Read Me
HyperCard:Games:Roulette
HyperCard:Education:VegieCard

I REALLY wish I could've attended some of those trade shows as well. That would have been an exciting time for Apple products.

It was even worse being there, everyone selling stuff had Quadras and those super-duper new Macs called PowerPCs, and all I had at home was my IIci and a Classic II I had bought for the girlfriend.

I remember an Apple guy showing off a stack of 7 CD300e's all SCSI daisychained to the back of some PowerMac. "Can I see it work ?" I asked, "I've ordered one only 6 months ago from an Apple Premium Reseller and I'm still waiting for it". "It shouldn't take that long" he said. "Apple UK" I said, "But you're right, when I ordered my IIci I asked the reseller to get me a IIsi or IIci, whatever RAM, whatever disk, just whatever model you can get, it took only 17 weeks. The (extended) keyboard came 3 weeks later". I thought it was just Apple UK, but a guy from Canada joined in and said it was a similar story for him when he ordered his Quadra 900. "You have a Quadra 900 ?" I said, "You get no sympathy from me" with a laugh.

Don't think any of the execs came to the summer expos, just the programming legends, Scott Knaster and Danny Goodman.

I'm so envious bertyboy, I've always seen magazine articles about those trade shows and wished I could have gone and loaded up on swag. Alas, it was not meant to be.

Attila,
Thanks for creating the page. 1994 was from memory, in fact you're spot on, I didn't go in 1995, so this one must have been 1993 or earlier. I did go to more than a few MacWorld Expos around then, in the Exhibition Centre in Boston and the WTC. There was so much Mac stuff there at a time when it was impossible to source normally through Apple dealers. I used to fill my suitcase with stuff to bring back to the UK, mostly books and software,

I'm amazed the NAV picked anything up, I usually viros scan everything I upload / download, but not if I have the original locked media.

I couldn't pick a category because nothing looked right for a shareware collection. And yes, if you're looking at the time of that antivirus report, I never sleep. Tired

ADD: BTW bertyboy, I know you listed this as being from 1994, and maybe that's when you got it, but all the creation and modification dates on the Toast image indicate it was completed in July of '93, so that's the date I went with.
