[ALLY] Amiga setup tip Re:(2)

Yes, the console locked up when hitting the close gadget, which I had
submitted as a bug report this last weekend.
That was 0.9.9 or whatever that Beta version was. This morning before
work, I just installed the Developer version which is later, but I
haven't gone back to see if that problem is already fixed or not.
As far as ILBM's, I do think they would provide lots of existing content
for all platforms, to have that reader there, and give Rebol a great big
edge over Java, for the graphics that could be used. (It takes time to
develop new artwork! And I have tons of great GUI artwork in ILBM form)
Of course, a converter could be written in Rebol, although I think the
.jpeg decoder is written in asm for speed if I remember info from the
(have you ever tried to look at an ILBM with netscape?
the poor thing gets cornfused with such standardized IFF graphics...)
I suspect since most ILBM's (ANIMs would be nice too!) are inherently
compressed but do not require a fat processor to use efficiently, that
they could give excellent speed results.
Anyway, thats my $.02 from the soapbox.
Every picture tells a story, don't it?
