FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Dearborn, MI — July 14, 1999 — MacHack, The Annual Conference For
Leading Edge Developers, has long been the place where some of the
best and brightest developers in the Macintosh community assemble
each year to compete and show off their fantastic hacks in the MacHax
Best Hack Contest. Now, without even attending MacHack, Macintosh
enthusiasts can enjoy much of the thrill of the Hack Show.
This year’s CD-ROM contains all the Hacks from the 1999 conference as
well as hacks from every conference since 1993. Collected in one
place, this CD-ROM is an unprecedented value for Macintosh hobbyists
and coders alike.
The CD is jammed full of data. The 1999 Hacks and papers are
collected in a folder for easy access. Materials from the 1993 though
1998 MacHack CD-ROMs are squeezed the only way they would fit in the
remaining space using an installer built with Installer VISE.
“This CD brings together the biggest collection of MacHack history
ever,” said Scott Boyd of The MacHax Group. “MindVision has helped
MacHack pack an unbelievable amount of the best of the conference
onto a single CD.”
The result of this herculean compression effort is 625MB of MacHack
history made as easy to access as possible. Anyone interested in the
hacks and papers for entertainment, study or archival purposes should
own this one-of-a-kind CD-ROM.
The CD is available for purchase at
(http://www.mindvision.com/Shop/MacHackCD.asp) for $19.95. Shipping
is $5 in the US and $15 for international purchasers. All profits
from CD-ROM sales go to help fund MacHack 2000.
More information on MacHack, The Annual Conference for Leading Edge
Developers, is available at the conference web site at
MindVision, MacHack, and The MacHax Group assume no responsibility
whatsoever for the contents of the CD-ROM, nor what happens to any
machine on which any hacks are installed. Hacks are NOT warranted in
any way, and crashes, data loss, and other unpleasant side effects
may very well result from their use. Some individual authors may
support their hacks, though they are under absolutely no obligation
to do so. The hacks are raw code written for the Hack Show and
therefore cannot be guaranteed to function for any particular purpose
on any particular machine. The purchaser assumes all responsibility
for any havoc, data loss or civil unrest that may occur as a result
of installing and/or using the hacks.
MacHack 2000 will take place June 22-24, 2000, in Dearborn, Michigan.
