    Any word on QuickTime 6.1 yet?

    I am currently finishing a project that involves a whole bunch of PCs capturing DV streams to AVI and then editing them in QT6. Yeah, I would like to migrate all our corporate IT strategy to Mac, but sadly that won't happen any time soon. All is running perfectly until the .AVI files exceed...

    Hi, shell code snippet, place on '.login' file and enjoy!!! Cool! As random engine I use 'jot', but a better engine could be used. Some calendars do not have quotes for all days, so sometimes no quote is shown, you could easily extend it to do a loop until some quote is actually shown...

    Pure Data Music soft (Tcl/Tk)

    Has anyone used the 'Pure Data' music UNIX software yet? It seems to be a powerful (and complex) piece of software. It seems to use the Tcl/Tk framework (and the latest Apple-developed one, not the one shipped with OSX) and I can't seem to figure it out. I'm spoiled by Fink =) TIA, dani++
