i do it all day, so to say :-)

The stacks are hosted on an OS 9.x AppleShare server and acced
via OS X and win 98 and 2000.

No problems so far.

OS X also looks for the extension (*.mc) before
this annoying dialog pops up, asking what appp to use etc...

Looks like these times are gone forever :-)
Love that... :-)

Hey, there is James Brown with some older live-performance
on the german TV... (Living in america :-)... (3 Sat ;-)

I hope you all have a good time on this special evening :-)

Have a very big party everyone !!! (I do !!!)
