Re: Ancient Book

Once a year or so I pull this out and think about recycling it, but I haven't been able to bring myself to do it yet. I kept all my old HyperCard books in a bookcase in my home office.

Re: Load stack from server to mobile

I've heard rumors that some livecoders have not incurred Apple's rath with iOS apps that load external stacks.
The theory being it's akin to loading javascript in a webpage.
