I just picked this up from the Tidbits digest. It seems like a good cause and I wonder if any lister here might be able to help. Just a thought. Sorry if people think it's a waste of bandwidth.

> I'm the author of If Monks had Macs, a classic CD-ROM that still interests folks today and that works in Snow Leopard (and on Windows as well). It might be the longest running multimedia project in history. However, Monks is 21 years old this winter and I think it's time it made its own way in the world. I would like to make it a free download, and I'm asking for suggestions for ways to do that.

However, if you visit it you will see that to celebrate Monk's 21st birthday I have just quietly made available a free re-make for one of the games in Monks that I want. It is beautifully illustrated, quick and deep. And it is an excellent reminder or introduction to what Monks is. The remake of Killing Time will be formally announced with the release of the free Monks early next year:
