Talking Moose still chatty in OS X Lion

What makes one think about a Talking Moose on a windy, chilly Sunday in November? Whatever led me there brings us here and that can only mean (you young kids might wanna back away slowly) an outburst of gratuitous sentimentality.

The original Talking Moose arrived on the Mac back in 1986 and fell out of use in the ’90s. Uli Kusterer revived the loose lipped ruminant in the noughties.

It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed, the hands acquire shaking, the shaking becomes a warning. It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion — Wisdom of the Talking Moose.

Whereas Uli’s Moose page hasn’t been updated since 2006, the app itself got a bump in 2008 — love’s labor continued.

Thereupon, the Talking Moose is a Universal Binary that’s OS X Lion compatible and you can download it here. Further, Uli offers versions for Classic (7.1 ~ 9.1) and early OS X (10.1) on his site, as well.

Any Moose memories or memorabilia to share?
