> Marketing does have a road map for CodeWarrior for Mac OS

That's nice. Does engineering have a roadmap? In particular, does it
have one that doesn't have a "Bridge collapsed ahead" sign on it? :-)


Did you have to twist their arm? LOL


Of course there's a question: Is MW going to resume active development
of CW, and in particular, have a future release that generates x86
binaries? And of course it's too late to answer it promptly, but we'd
still like to hear the answer.

FWIW, I dare say no one cares about marketing's roadmap (well, okay,
I'm sure marketing cares ;-). We want to know if engineering has a
roadmap.


Assumptions are evil. Of course sometimes they're valid. I assumed we
wouldn't see a roadmap before you left for vacation. ;-)


Okay, we won't worry. You've told us you assume we get a roadmap. What
more could we ask than a assumption that we'll get a roadmap? LOL


No, no, this is too easy. I just can't. ROFLMAO


Make it interesting. Take a parachute and jump out. ;-)

I think we all get the drift of your thinking over the last little while.
Could you also share a little mercy please?

thanks....

What, you want me to loan him *my* parachute? ;-)

FYI, balloon and helicopter jumps are the only skydives in which you
ever feel like you're falling, because those are the only ways to start
a skydive in still air. I know if *I* were going up in a balloon I'd
much rather jump out of it than land with it (how boring).

Actually, there's no way you'd get me in a hot air balloon *without* a
parachute. LOL

(It's not me, but you'll get the idea. ;-)

I believe I know exactly what he meant, and it was definitely not as
unkind as you seem to suppose. In the circumstances, a little gentle
ribbing should certainly do no harm.

Not to mention the heroic restraint he showed in not using "hot air" and
Metrowerks in the same sentence. Ron fed him about as good a straight line
as you're going to get...

I jumped out of an airplane once, without a parachute.

Oh, yea, it was parked at the time.

Cool!


Nah, it was just windy. LOL

When you jump out of a plane you basically start your dive at about
80mph into the wind in the direction the plane is going, and over the
course of the next several seconds that speed gradually increases to
115-120mph and your movement through the air transitions to vertical
(i.e, you accelerate as you move through an arc). You never experience
the full feeling of falling because there's always significant
resistance from the air. But if you jump from a balloon or a
helicopter, you start out in still air--no air resistance--initially
and as a result feel a much greater sense of falling at the beginning
of the jump than when jumping from a plane.

In any case, you still won't see me 4000' up in an open box without my
parachute. ;-)

Well, there's releasing yourself from a tandem paraglider, too. You're not
*perfectly* still, but close enough as to feel no difference.

Why would anyone want to jump off a fully working plane (or balloon)???

Well technically, you normally jump *out* of the plane (although it's a
lot of fun just to hang on the outside and just let go ;-), but if you
really want to know, try it and find out. As I've heard it said:

Those that do can't explain. Those that don't can't understand.

and

If riding in an airplane is flying, then riding in a boat is swimming.

Actually, the love of falling is very common. People just don't
normally fall very far. Kids jump on beds and off rocks, people jump
off diving boards, on *** olines, onto haystacks and so on. Skydiving
just gives you the most time and the best view. ;-)
