Just a reminder: Applications that don't improve usually die, as in become un-supported. Become dependent on any app at your own peril!

Be aware that the next version of macOS (10.13, High Sierra) will be the last one that will support 32-bit apps. macOS 10.14 will require 64-bit apps. You can determine what apps are currently 32-bit versions with the System Information display. Two ways to get that display:
    Use the Apple menu and hold down the Option key. Tthe first item changes from "About this mac..." to "System information...".
    Open the "About this Mac..." dialog. Use the "System report..." button.
Once you get to the "System information/report" window, scroll down the left-hand column and select "Software/Applications". This list may take a few moments to build the report.
The right-hand column lists apps that are 64-bit capable with a "Yes/No" entry.

As for the "graveyard" list...
Some of the apps reporting a "No" may be on their last legs, especially if they haven't been updated in over a year. Take a look at the apps at The Product Graveyard and see if any of your apps are already there! eek2.gif

Just remember, "A stitch in time saves nine lives". Or something like that... tease.gif

There is a reason software has no expiration date. It's too hard to print on electrons! yes.gif
