Dear Julie and Friends,
I have received emails from our customers describing their experiences when their computers crash. I can so sympathize with that. Over the past month, I have experienced the pre-crash when nothing is working, the crash, the temporary computer, and now the new computer.
So my public service announcement is: Be ready. When was the last time you backed up your designs, files, pictures, music and all those things you can't be without. Fortunately, I use an external mini drive and my files were backed up. These are relatively inexpensive and can save you a heartache. The other thing is to make sure you have registered your software and keep any product license codes you may have in a safe place. It will make reinstalling so much easier.
Many of our friends may have already seen our software websites announcing the new 5D Software. We are so excited about this new product and I believe our friends will be too. This is like getting ready for Christmas day. This summer we will be able to unwrap this new package. Just like kids, once you unwrap it you are not going to want to stop playing with your new toy.
One of the questions, we are currently being asked in Software Support is: What are the computer specifications required for the 5D System?
PC with Intel processor or equivalent (1 GHz or higher)
2GB hard disk space
Screen resolution 1024 x 768, 16 million colors
Mouse or drawing tablet
Some early launch materials have been posted on the internet.
For our Pfaff friends they can visit http://pfaff.5dembroiderysystem.com/
For our Husqvarna Viking friends they can visit http://hv.5dembroiderysystem.com/
While you are there you can get a preview of some new features in 5D, as well as read some FAQ's.
It's going to be a busy few months while we prepare for this new launch and create exciting projects to share with our customers and dealers. During this time we will also share with our friends some of our experiences.
See you soon!
