Yea, I read about the "solution" you have to adopt to use the Mac in this
situation. Such a shame. I really love the Mac platform. But at least it can be
done. By the way, aren't' these little robots the coolest?!
But back to topic...
I wonder what's involved to get a Mindstorms interface (and even a simulator)
written for Squeak? I'm willing to contribute as much as I can figure out, but the
first step is to survey what's alreayd either done or in process to help this
effort. This ends up combining 2 of my passions...
