We've had a number of disturbing complaints from users who have had trouble getting thru to scripting.com. Apparently there's a battle going on between ISPs. You and I are caught in the middle. If these other ISPs want our business, could we hear from them directly?

I read Jim Carlton's new Apple book and hated it. It rehashes the ridiculous point of view that the egos and petty BS of Apple execs and engineers mattered. What matters to me is what Mac users and developers were doing. No one has written this book yet. He's right about egos ruling the internal machinations at Apple. That, and Carlton's forced writing style, makes this a boring and frustrating book. This point of view has been reported over and over. Who cares?
