Have you tried e-mailing Alexander Clauss about it?

I tried to reach out to him a few months ago  but haven't heard from him, unfortunately.

No, I foresaw that. That’s why I’m asking Cashed.

Thanks for that challenge -very enlightening.

See attached reply.
No luck -just yet. But don't give up.

I replied to him. Asking, if it's the same case with the Crystal Atari Browser source code.
If we're allowed porting CAB 2.8, for Classic Mac OS ourselves. MagiC!Mac emu runs CAB on the Mac.
Alexander used to do that, before he ported it into iCab. The Atari-Forum is very active, so there's help within reach.
*Dependencies may be skipped altogether since, prior to becoming CAB, it was an offline HTML browser.
It were other programmers who wrote Internet plugins for it, so it could access the Internet. *(side note)
Moreover,
Quote from: Alexander
"this is something I don't have time for, sorry."
can have many implications. Meaning at the current time or due to other projects, or simply, not having the hardware to do it.
I woke up with an idea. I vote in favor, that we all chip in $0,76-4,58 and buy Jacques Mac mini G4/1.42, put our Mac OS 9 build on it -along with Metrowerks Codewarrior, and send it off to Alexander.
When the time comes closer to finishing the next build, pm me and I'll ask him again.

*Update: Cab source code "died" -see attachment.
You might have to go with dotexe1337 idea for now.

The world remains physical.

Quote from: OS923
Encyclopedia of fonts (as a pdf file).

Learned to say "I come in peace," in Russian.
When they finally understood me, I were kindly deported towards the Chinese–Russian border.
I stopped dead in my RU tracks, when I ended up in China.
The Encyclopedia of Fonts by Gwyn Headley.pdf (It does say pdf ;) -quest over.)

Nice to find that the world isn't all digitized yet. Honestly, I'd pick up that paperback for $4.58 or even $8,39 and scan it myself.
But then again, one never knows what I'll find when I call up the Hotline for the next quest.
_______

I do love a good conundrum.
particular application or script.
That’s a review of what I asked.

I would like to have a screensaver like Space Plasma 3D for OS 9.
1.
I getcha on the screensaver request, as OS 9 never had one and ’23 should. If I caught it right, you’d like one that ‘resembles’ the looks of Space Plasma 3D right?
As that one was released by Digital Minds Software back in 2004 and v1.0 ever only were made for OS: Win9x/Me/2000/XP
https://web.archive.org/web/20040207113556/http://www.digimindsoft.com/space-plasma-3d-screensaver.htm
https://web.archive.org/web/20050428002930/http://www.screensavers-source.com/screensavers.php

2.
OS23 be frank with me, and I wont cross The Encyclopaedia of Fonts off the list, just yet.
If it’s not a conundrum and you really do need it for your work, I’ll still keep it tucked in the back of my mind, in my ongoing search.
I haven’t yet tried tho to search for a translated version of it.
But what does it contain, besides 10.000 fonts?
If it’s Fonts you’re after I have 11.773 TTF, OTF, AFM Fonts, I burned to discs in 2005, I can stuff in the dropbox. May have more if I search my ext 4,5 TB.

3.
Acrobat 5 SDK -that’s bad to lack. I’m in the process of contacting bloggers and forum posters, that had it back in 2002 to 2008.

Are you absolutely sure, that you don’t have any of these files names tucked away, among all your ftp folders?
‘acro5sdkr1.sit.hqx’
’acro5sdkr2.sit.hqx’
'acro5sdkr3.sit.hqx' or .hqx
‘acro5sdkr4.hqx’

If no, I’ll have to install Hotline or any other clients, Carracho, Pitbull, KDX, IRC, w/ZNC etc. and try my tracker luck there then.

Requests Update
« Reply #13 on: January 23, 2022, 02:24:29 PM »
For those of you who wish to Assist in the quests of our inquiries, see self-help. Use Keka extract. See OP avatar for pass.

*Update, just got notified. Unfortunately the installer we received, pulls down the full SDK from online, which does not exist anymore, so saddle up! We do not have Acrobat 5 SDK - Quest Resumes.

Regarding Requests, as I can't edit the OP.
Do please pm me or post here when inquiries has been found -so quests can end.

So the problem with the Acrobat 5 SDK is that it’s an online installer.

If my memory is good, I experienced something similar with the StuffIt 6 SDK.

Then I’m looking also for REALbasic 2007 (or better) for Windows with working password.

No, no. What you download from Wikipedia is XML that contains Wikitext. I search XML that contains XML or HTML. Some companies claimed that they were working on this, but I never saw an actual download.

You should have known that if we can’t find it then it will be difficult.

Thanks OS923
I did find it odd -that it was that easy.

All right listen up trackers, I’m an enneagram type 6, with wings on both sides and can with ease jump around to any type, but I too have my limits. I ever only end up in type 5, which OS923 is, when I get an idea or track down one, or the etymology of a word. I can literally spend hours, and I loose the ability to pass on for others to understand me at all.
Common jobs for people with enneagram type 5 are mathematicians, scientists and computer programmers like OS923.

Anyone that can supply with any help of any left out specifics are more than welcome to chip in. What year, What Companies, any additional information?
That can help me and others better understand, what to insert in the search terms would be much appreciated.
