[MD1] Informal GUI/Window Design Discussion
For those who might possibly be interested, an _informal, non-official, non-Apple-sanctioned_ discussion about the design of a new graphical user interface and windowing system for the next generation of Macintosh operating system is talking place on the GX dev mailing list and the AIMED-talk mailing list [see sig for subscription info]. Background: Apple Computer's attempts to create a transitional operating system have failed, at least partly due to a lack of a pre-emptive multitasking-enabled graphical user interface and windowing system in their transitional OS design. The design of Apple's original graphics library [QuickDraw] didn't allow for a simple transition to PMT, and the shipment date for their transitional OS slipped beyond commercial viability. To make matters worse, former management didn't have a fully-PMT GUI waiting in the wings, so now Apple is without a transitional OS *or* a full-featured OS. Fortunately, Apple has available the most powerful 2D graphs library...

[MD1] RAM HighWater
I have just released my first freeware utility, "RAM HighWater" Its purpose is to allow users and programmers to determine how much memory a program ever needs. It works much like a high-tide marker. It keeps track of the amount of memory a program is actually using, and will report back to you the most it ever did use, so you can adjust your "preferred memory" accordingly. It also will retain this "HighWater" mark even after the target quits.
