    Squeak

    I saw someone giving a presentation that used very unusual graphcs, definitely not powerpoint. I asked him what tool he used and it turned out to be an Open Source package called Squeak.

    I have just had a little play and I am amazed at the capability of this software, it's a strange combination of a drawing package and a programming language. You can find details of it at http://www.squeak.org or the Teacher's and Student's version is at http://www.squeakland.org. It really is worth the effort of downloading this browser add in and then going through the tutorials on their web site.

    Tell them about the bug in their picture! In Roman numerals, 4 o'clock is shown (on most clocks as <font face="Georgia">IIII</font face=georgia> not as <font face="Georgia">IV</font face=georgia>.

    Pedants Rule!
    <font face="Script MT Bold"><font color=blue><big><big>John</big></big></font color=blue></font face=script>

    Ita, esto, quidcumque...

    Man, I'll have to go thru the hassle of the 11-Meg download... Oh well <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    I'm sure it'll be worth the effort. Thanks Stuart.

    Re: Squeak

    Oops. I had very little time and just read thru their site quickly... I had GoZilla queue a file called Squeak3.6-current-win-full.zip which is 11418 K, but I'd better read over (and eventually queue over <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>).
    Thanks
