it starts grabbing more processor time after 2 seconds of non-activity 
(it's configurable)

Andrew is a Mystery, he is the the wind  ;-)

Good question. Dont' know that one. Will the wind blow?

Yes, there will be a v3 client, as long as "v" doesn't stand for what I 
fear it might.

It's prettier, it's faster, and it's got some advanced features. Would 
that be what you like about it?

Anyway, I'm sort of having some fun with the Mac Dream Team again, and 
that includes Andrew Meggs. There's a new, super-enhanced version of the 
RC5DES client coming from Peter DiCamillo, very soon. This is NOT 
described on distributed-mac, nor will it be until it's closer to 
release. I don't think the frail hearts on this list (or the mac lists) 
could possibly contain themselves...   ;-)

Did you go there today? It's ben updated again.


I just can't seem to stay away, no matter how nasty this list treats me. 
(actually, a big part of my quiet return was the private letters from so 
many people that said they'd miss me... thanks everybody).
