Re: hypercard

Hi,
I have RealBasic but haven't done anything with it. HyperCard with the scripting for each card avoids lots of extra coding. So any hypercarders like to give me a hand would appreciate it.

Re: time synchronizer

Hi, Okay shut something off as above and am no longer getting the time synchronizer error. Neat. Lament also the passing of the last knight tilting against the wind mills of mediocrity. But he gave us our very own Mayan clock counting up from some time in 1955. That is really neat. Still need some h...

I havent the faintest idea what the time synchronizer is. I can imagine what it is but I want to shut it off. Do I just un x it in the extensions manager pa...

I wanted to try to start it up without any non apple extensions. I was surprised the other day that one program will run while booted f...

extension icons

Hi,

Is there a glossary of the extension icons???? I havent the faintest idea of what most of them are. I am sure most of them I dont need so would like to shut them off so load up time can be reduced.
It would be nice if there was a site or a page that shows the icon and what it is.
Thanks RAy.
