Stockpile Manager
From: Brian S Hall (moseshll@umich.edu) Subject: Open-source Collection Mgr clone I am pleased to announce the immediate availability of the Stockpile Manager, a free open-source replacement (in C) for the Apple's Collection Manager. The Stockpile Manager duplicates the entire Collection Manager API. All you have to do is replace the word 'Collection' with 'Stockpile', so GetNewCollection becomes GetNewStockpile. Note, however, that I have not done any reverse-engineering. Internal formats are different, so you can't pass a Collection to the Stockpile Manager, and vice versa. The flattened data format *is* documented, so flattened objects are compatible between the two. The Stockpile Manager is built on top of VArrayLib, my free open-source variable array engine. VArrayLib is also available from my web site (see below) and is necessary to compile the Stockpile Manager. Why did I write this thing? Because I don't like to see older machines, with pre-8.5 systems or without QuickDraw GX...

Blugs public beta
From: Brian S Hall (moseshll@umich.edu) Subject: 'Blugs' (List Manager replacement) public beta All Mac OS developers are invited to participate in beta testing a new Mac OS List Manager replacement called 'Blugs'. Blugs goes far beyond List Manager functionality, as should be apparent from this partial feature list: * The amount of data that can be stored in a Blugs list is limited only by available memory. The Mac OS List Manager is limited to 32KB of data. * Many library variants: PowerPC Carbon and pre-Carbon, 68k A5 and A4, Pascal and debug. All libraries do extensive parameter checking; the debug libraries additionally report errors and warnings. * Blugs only requires 32-bit GWorld support (System 7 and later). It uses advanced OS features like the Appearance Manager and the Allegro (OS 8.5) Control Manager only when available. * Built-in support for vertical and horizontal title bars. * You can load lists entirely from resources. This includes cell and title data. * Up to 65535...

MGI's Tax Miscalculation Sale
For Immediate Release 31 July 2000 Announcing the First Annual Tax Miscalculation Sale on MGI Given that MGI has done so well this past fiscal year, and given that the US corporate tax laws are draconian and completely incomprehensible, we are having our First Annual Tax Miscalculation Sale on MGI. I underestimated our federal corporate income taxes by almost $40,000 for the past fiscal year and need to pay them before the feds seize my wife and force her into slave trade. So because I messed up the calculations, you win. (And you really don't want to know what the total tax is -- it is staggering. Where is that Republican Congress when we really need them?) Before of groveling in front of an IRS collections agent, a bank loan officer, or my dear mother who is clothed in loincloth barely subsisting on bread, water, and insects, I want to sell ninety (90) copies of MGI Deluxe Multi-Domain at half price. And I will sell MGI Deluxe Multi-Domain at half price until I have sold 90 copies....
