Downloading Information

 This web site has many different kinds of files available for downloading.

  The PDF files can either be downloaded and saved, or will open in most web browsers, and the other files may be downloaded directly when you click on them. If they open as garbled text in your web browser, try right clicking, and then saving the file to disk instead.

   ZIPped files will need to be first unzipped on the host computer.

  BXY and SHK files will need to be opened with ShrinkIt, GSHK, or Balloon.

  Disk images can either be written to disk and mounted directly, or mounted within emulators such as Sweet16.

   If you are using a IIgs, either real or emulated, you can often transfer files quickly into your IIgs from your host computer by using the SAFE2 FTP application.
