Anyone Interested in my 'Jump Scripts' Tool?

Dear List

Thanks to the great response to my request both here in the List and  
off List.  Since then, I've added about six new features to 'Jump  
Script' and will be releasing it first as a Mac OSX and OS9 test app to  
those who are interested, shortly followed by Windows.

So if there is anyone on OS9 or OSX that hasn't responded and would  
like to be in the first test seed, please email me off-list ASAP.

To reiterate: my motivation releasing this tool (and for spending the  
last two days upgrading it!) is that this is a really great  
keyboard/mouse method to navigate through the myriad of scripts -  
stacks, cards and objects -- saving you lots and lots of  
hunting/navigation time.  It doesn't replace 'Application Overview' but  
works together with it.

Thanks again.
