Like when I tried to set up a Multi-Vue disk, following the instructions in the
manual to the letter? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!

I think there is a "Change Log" in the zip file, but there are *no* specific
details, so it doesn't do much good. also, it should be on the disk. There is
some additional info on changes in the /defs directory, but again, nothing
Computer manuals are as notorious as acts of congress for lack of clarity. When
upgrades as big as these are distributed with absolutely *no* documentation,
espesialy with as os as complicated as OS-9, you have an exelent excuse to go
So, programmers, how about a little help here? Please remember that not only do
some of us out here find C unreadable, but all those pathnames and scripts too.
While you're at it, see if you can add some nice easy new features to GShell,
please? Here's a hint: borrow a Commodore 64/128 and play with Geos for a
