Subject: MenuBar on/off

Dear MAXers!

I just came across a nice freeware control panel named "Bartender" which
allows you to switch on/off the Macintosh's menu bar.


"Bartender is a control panel originally written for a Pippin developer to
avoid the Menu Bar from ever showing up. The menus are active, the bar is
just never drawn. Bartender also supports the deactivation of graphic cards
that do not auto-deactivate when their monitor is detached."

Bruckner-Conservatory (Linz / Austria)

A week ago, I mentioned Don Ritter's Orpheus.  Then I got this message,
which I think is of interest...

Hi All-

Isn't the Poly Key Pressure of the midiformat supposed to be channel
specific?  I get a status byte of 160 decimal for all channel numbers
input via MIDI channel.  All other inputs output the status byte with the
channel as they are supposed to.  What am I missing?
