will try to sneak it into the 3.5.1 update.

Use the intuitively named WSHADOWPROC constant as part of the
flags you pass to wind_new.

I found this on the net :
http://valley.interact.nl/av/org/rainst/Tjetman.html

it's called MidiTjet and it's a MIDI via TCP client/server.

I use this when I create the window:

x->i_wind = wind_new(x, left, top, right, bottom, WVIS | WCOLOR |
WSHADOWPROC);

There is no title bar then.

I am receiving multiple copies of the MAX digest. This has happened on and
off over the last few weeks. Has anyone else had this problem?

Subject: 3.5 table update?

There was a message a while back about correcting the 3.5 version of the
table object - its ability to respond to the quantile/bang message. Has
this been done yet? Any news is appreciated.

I am receiving multiple copies of messages, sometimes even 3 copies.  Part
of my problem is that compuserve allowed us to change our addresses, so now
I can't unsubscribe from the old address.

But the real issue is that repeated messages to the "list owner" Sean
Terriah elicit absolutely no response or action whatsoever. I've sent my
fourth or fifth one today.

Along with the alternative to the dial object mentioned a little while ago,
there were some other objects made by Pieter Jongelie, including an
appletalk object. (The objects are only 68k compatible for the time being.)
I assume this will work with any kind of appletalk connection... serial or
ethernet... let us know how it works out!

You should be able to find the objects on the server of Stichting Rainstick.

Here's the URL:

http://www.xs4all.nl/~rainstic/MAX/maxpage.html

I know they've publicised this page on the Max list before, so I hope they
don't mind my mentioning it once again.

Has anyone much experience with controlling Sony Laserdisc players? Are the
commands similar to the Pioneer one using the VDP object?
