OK, I myself am new at this ftp thing, and I _was_ having problems
getting the .message to work; I mailed netcom support, but they have
a big backlog.  Tnank's to Jeremy's suggestion, I realized what was
wrong - when I set the attributes for all files in that dir with the
"*" wildcard, it ignored the .message file, as it should.  Once I
specifically targeted the .message, it now works as it should.

You need Binhex for those files ... because they are _Mac_ files.
If the .message was working right, you would have been told that.
<sigh>  Those programs are Hypercard stacks, not cross-platform
programs (why?  because I don't know C/Pascal/whatever and don't
have time to leanr them right now), and they only work on a Macintosh.
I don't know if there is a PC-Hypercard emulator, or if SoftMac
(or whatever it is called) can run them.
Note that everything else in the directory _is_ cross-platform:
GIF files, text files, etc.  Just the programs that I wrote are

Read_me.txt has been changed to 00ReadMe.txt - good suggestion!
The large flow map doesn't have the grid on it because I am a dope.
The program that I drew it in has a toggleable grid, which of course
was _not_ saved with the file.  I've changed the graphic so it has
the grid points, and uploaded it.

Sorry about the mistakes, folks.  This is my first ftp-site that I've
had to make decisions on, and since I haven't been ftp'ing much
recently, I had forgotten the protocols for it.  :/
