Chip,

This Zip things sounds veeeery interesting. Is it strictly a "compress this
folder, compress this file" thing, or can I add a file to an existing zip?
If so, this could be the file format I have been looking for my Amazon
affiliate program...I need something that can hold a data file and a couple
of hundred graphic files in one file.

Well,

Chris decided to jump in the MacOSX development environment (pls don't 
tell anyone or else he loses his  card carrying Linux privledges) and 
has crafted a first version of altBrowser for MacOSX. It's not yet 
completed, but it is working (or so he tells me...I'm at WWDC right now).

So a quick question for those interested. We're pretty sure we're not 
going to support the Mac before OSX. Is that a deal killer for those of 
you interested?

Also, Chris wants to create a Linux altBrowser as well.

Lastly, we've just completed Mac and PC zip externals for 
compressing/decompressing to zip files / folders. We'll be hoping soon 
to have something up for those interested.

best,

Chipp

btw, funny thing. Richard Gaskin and I are here at WWDC representing RR. 
Richard saw the new dashboard presentation and decided that instead of 
waiting until 2005, he'd whip up a version inside RR here at the show. 
He just about completed it before time ran out..today.

I really feel for Konfabulator-- Apple's done their best to screw them, 
and funny thing is how a lot of developers here think "Hey, it's good to 
have competition!" Richard also previewed his Devolutions package which 
he threatens to release almost as often as we do the Mac version of 
altBrowser. It's really cool. I'm trying to persuade him to release the 
beta at the Rev Masters Summit mid-July. Perhaps a few emails to 
ambassador at fourthworld.com would help get the message across:-)
