[ALLY] Re: REBOL 2.5 Released

If you tell REBOL to DISARM ERROR, it converts it to an object. You will
not see that object unless you MOLD it:
print mold disarm error
probe disarm error
Isn't there an easier way to associate a .r extension with an application?
For instance, can't you delete any .r association from the registry and then
just click on the .r file? At that point, doesn't a requester come up
asking to associate an application with that extension?
Maybe WinCE is different enough from Windows for the above to not work the
same way, so it is just an idea.
The 'pending' versions on the website don't have real version numbers. They
are just place holders.
PPC and StrongARM are two different processors. I don't believe a binary
for one will work on the other.
