Admin and [Fwd: Re: [Cute] Alan Kay on Croquet]

From: "andrew cooke" <andrew@...>

I upgraded to exim4 a while back and managed to break the system I had
configured for this list.  While it has continued to work for me, it's not
been working for anyone else, so I didn't notice for some time.  Apolgoies
for that, and abject apologies if you tried to unsubscribe during that
time and couldn't!

Anyway, it is fixed now, I hope (someone just joined (hello!), which was
good timing for testing things).  While it was broken, this email was
dropped.  If any other comments are missing, please feel free to re-post -
there was no intentional censorship...

Cheers,
Andrew

I am not a Croquet insider but I think they are definitely making  progress.

In a recent (2004-04-22) message on the croquet-user mailing list,  Julien
Lombardi writes:

on the effort.  In addition to the work on user interface design and
securing Croquet communications, we also hope to have a new Croquet
website up in the coming month that will provide lots of information.

The latest paper I could find is here:
http://www.reed.com/tealand/lightsmith/04.01.01%20CroquetUIPaperV3.pdf It
has details on some user interface techniques used in Croquet.

So I'm expecting the croquet release RSN.
