Re: Web Demo doesn't work

Ideally, there would be two versions of the CD, one "real
application" and a local web-based for those with screen size
challenges. I don't know of any laptop with 1280x1024 screen. My
17" Powerbook G4 does a nice job with the web-based demo, showing
most of the screen. I'll show it live at FREENIX tomorrow using
Jan's server. I'll also briefly show off the local RII running on my
laptop.

Unfortunately, Jan's audio output doesn't work on my Mac, as
Quicktime doesn't recognize the mp3 or avi file. Advise on how to
fix that would be appreciated, so I can show that off too.

Thanks.

Best regards,
Arthur
