I tried to run the upgrades from the menu and it said that "there's no new updates." But now with the "not connected" issue I don't think that's even possible.
as a side note I switched internet providers in this time period but I don't think that would even be an issue.
As you can tell I'm not very good with the technical aspects. I looked on the github updates from Vikram and I"m not sure which link to click on for a Mac desktop.
Thank you very much for your help Xeroc. I'm sorry for the beginner issues.
Hi Slappy, and Welcome
Until version 1.0 is released, that Upgrade menu item is disabled.
The code right now still requires you to upgrade to v0.9.0 though so that it can sync up.
For your Mac, here's the download link from bitshares.org: https://bitshares.org/binaries/BitShares-0.9.0.dmg
Just extract all the files into a folder, run the BitShares executable, login, and give it a day to sync up again, all the way.
Then you'll see your transactions and balances in there.
Let me know if that helps a bit, if not, just PM me and I can skype with you too, no problem.
