If you mean England then ignore this message...

>Anyone got hold of 3.5 yet.

Nope, but I've not tried, since I don't see that 3.5 offers me anything
significant over 3.0, and the buggered copy protection in 3.0 was so much
trouble that I don't particularly want to waste valuable time fighting with
it again.

Roland has more contact with MCM than I do so he's more likely to know
what's going on. MCM never send me upgrade information even though they
have my address and phone number, for some reason which escapes me.

The only person you want to speak to is Lars at MCM tel 0171 258 3454. If
you
talk to anyone else at MCM nothing will happen.

MCM are notoriously slow at getting new products in, especially unusual
items
like MAX. I once had to wait 4 months to get a copy of MAX2.5. I have never
sussed out whether this is Opcode's fault for not shipping or MCMs fault for
late ordering. I spoke to Lars 3 or 4 weeks ago and he didn't have any 3.5
upgrades in stock then but he said some were on their way.

You'll be glad to hear that you can't order it directly from the States
either
as that would be Opcode 'stealing' a sale from MCM's exclusive UK
dealership!

Mind you if waiting for MAX in the UK is bad I think it is worse in many
other
countries...

Subject: Connecting Objects as Clients and Servers

I'm actually looking on how to build Client/Server externals (Writing
Externals pp.90-93) and I would like to know if it's possible to have a
server object from one class and client objects from another class (or do
they have to be from the same class?).

Thanks.

I have seen some software called Strip 68k/PPC which will 'strip' a FAT app
of the unwanted code.
You may want to try it on a copy first  :-)

As the readme says...

These two programs are used for removing the 68000 code and the PowerPC code
from a FAT application. Drop a FAT application on StripPPC to remove the
PowerPC
software; on Strip68K to remove the 68000 software.

Both of these programs are very preliminary; they seem to work okay on my
computers (a Quadra and a PowerPC 7100/66), but if there are any problems
with them, please drop us a line.

The developers can be reached at:

        In Phase Consulting
        337 West California Avenue #4
        Glendale, CA 91203
        e-mail  woody@alumni.cco.caltech.edu

it would probably be best to contact them, as I have old versions and don't
have the source code, which is part of the dist(free) package.
I don't know how Max 3.5's copy protection will handle it, but it could be
worth a try.

till later,
