The copyright is, I believe, extremely liberal (certainly not infectious like the gnu license), but let me know if you feel it can be improved. Why do this? Just a way of giving back to the Cocoa community that has been so helpful to my efforts in building Watson ( I'll add to this repository occasionally as I run across more generic bits of code, but don't expect a steady stream! :-) Dan Wood...

VVI Releases Vvidget User for Mac OS X
PRESS RELEASE State College, PA USA, 9 April 2003:VVI(R) today announced public availability of Vvidget User(TM) version 8.4.3 for Mac OS X. John Brilhart, Chief Technical Officer of VVI, made this statement: "Vvidget User includes several major components: A draw tool specialized to laying out 2D graphs, a preconfigured web graphing server, an Interface Builder palette for simple charts, two strip chart applications for plotting CPU and network performance in realtime, and an online user manual.
