Just updated my older version of JBidwatcher and it says it cant run on the architecture of this mac. So its either buying a new mac (too expensive) or finding an older version of JBidwatcher and remembering not to update it.
Please help.

    I'm so sorry. :( With the latest version, the decision had to be made to
    either not work on older macs, or not work on newer OS X versions. It has
    to do with the version of Java shipped by Oracle, and making it work inside
    an application bundle. I'm afraid I had to choose working on the larger
    number of systems.

    All the old versions are still on the server, so if you replace '2.99pre5'
    in the filename with the version number you want, it'll download it. But I
    don't know how long it'll work with eBay's changes. I do wish you the very
    best of luck with it!

    I hate having to make choices like that. :( Again, I'm very sorry.
