If you just click on “More Info” instead of “Download” then you can see the crossword on a page…  no idea why they thought people needed a .sit .pdf !

Scary… There’s only a few I didn’t realize immediately. The i(spore)Pods are spreading. We’ll all have Mac-itis in a few months. Well, except for those of us who bought the Hp branded one.

The iMac G5 is so much faster and so much (*gasp*) quieter than any crap PC could think of running. I have my two old PCs for getting files, etc and when I have to turn them on it’s like going in a wind tunnel. But my iMac is quieter than a whisper (oh…and it takes about 3 seconds [compared to anywhere from 30-60] to start up).

I didn’t want to start a ‘My D*ick is bigger then your’s’ argument. I prefer the PC - PC mentality. Does that make the PC better then the Mac?!?! Not really… It’s great that a Company like Apple exists! Granted it would be better for them [Apple] and for the Consumer if Apple would open-source there Hardware al-la IBM back in the mid ‘80s! Ain’t gonna happen though!

The point of my disqust is that the Publisher of the Website (in question), could have just linked to the .pdf File. instead of some propertory (Mac ONLY!) File Format. They could have at least placed a .zip file by it’s side!

As the author of the puzzle, having just discovered that the iPod Lounge had decided to link to the puzzle excited me.

However, it is disappointing to see the reader feedback here.

The reason there is a .sit file, is NOT for the normal “rank and file” viewer to us - The .sit file is supplied for magazine editors to grab all the relavent text and images for re-publishing in a printed magazine.  Also, considering most of of magazines that re-publish my puzzles, which cover Apple Computer related topics (and the iPod one just happens to be the latest topic for a puzzle) are Macintosh User Groups, the use of a .sit file makes sense.  Besides, StuffIt Expander is available, free of charge, for Macs, Windows and Linux - get it from http://www.stuffit.com

The “rank and file” viewer should go straight to the actual puzzle page - http://www.nicholaspyers.com/puzzles/20041012-ipoditunes/ where you can view it all on a simple HTML web page.

Anyway, I hope you ALL iPod users, regardless of been Mac or PC users, enjoy the puzzle - The cross platform compatibility of the iPod is a great thing.
