[Sean tries and fails to duck repeated blows from the stupidity club....] 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 Mac-only. 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. :/ - Sean -- Sean K Reynolds a.k.a.
