/// Fred Fish Update!
    -----------------


Disks 891-900 are now available.  Shipping to all those who have preordered
disks should be complete by 4-Aug-93.

Note that you can get a copy of the catalog (2 disks) of the complete library
contents by sending $3 for disks, postage, and mailer to:

        Fred Fish
        Catalog Disk Requests
        1835 East Belmont Drive
        Tempe, Arizona  85284
        USA

Thanks to all who submitted new and interesting material.  If you submitted
something in the past and it has not yet appeared in the library, please
feel free to resubmit it, particularly if it was several months ago.  I
sometimes hesitate to include material submitted more than about six
months ago because of some vague feeling that as soon as I include version
1.01 submitted many months ago, I'll see version 5.23 posted on usenet.

For those wishing to submit material for possible inclusion in the library,
here are a few simple guidelines that will make my job of organizing the
material MUCH easier and GREATLY increase your chances of having the material
accepted for inclusion:

1.      Don't submit bootable disks or disks with any other sort of
        proprietary material included, since I then have to go examine
        each file to decide if it is distributable or not, and if not,
        what effect removing it might have.  Unless the material is
        particularly interesting, I frequently just toss such disks
        into the recycling bin.

2.      Organize the distribution in a manner similar to my disks.  I.E,
        place all files related to a particular submission under a single
        directory on the disk.  If there is more than one submission per
        disk, place each submission in its own directory.

3.      Try to write a simple entry for my "Contents" listing that
        summarizes your submission.  It should be about 3-10 lines, and
        include the current version number, the version and disk number
        of the most recent version (if any) that was last included in the
        library, whether or not source is included, and an "Author" list.

4.      Ensure that your submission will run correctly from its sub-
        directory and if necessary, supply a script runnable from workbench
        (via :c/xicon or c:iconx) that makes all necessary assigns, copies
        fonts and libraries, etc.

5.      Send your submission in a sturdy envelope with sufficient padding.

Thanks!!!

                a full color animation in a miniature window on the 3.0 Work-
                bench screen.  AniMan is fully multitasking and runs in the
                foreground or background, listening for your voice commands
                even while other programs may be running.  Many improvements
                requested by users are now included.  Menu operations have
                been improved.  Documentation is provided in AmigaGuide format.

ARoach          Based on Xroach for X-Windows, displays disgusting cock-
                roaches on your screen.  These creepy crawlies scamper
                around until they find a window to hide under.  Whenever
                you move or resize a window, the exposed orthopteras again
                scamper for cover.  Version 1.0, requires at least AmigaDOS
                Release 2, includes source.

SmartPlay       A quite small, and really fast multiformat moduleplayer for

                of this player is also really low, so it will run fine even
                on a 7MHz Amiga, while doing some highspeed serial transfers.
