Hmn... that could definitely explain things.
I have Appearance Extension 1.0.1, which says "MacOS 8.1" in its 'vers' 2
resource. This suggests that maybe it's the version that came with this
machine (G3 desktop), but I'll have to fetch my system CD back from my
brother to find out. It's very possible that I had a newer one and
someone's installer "downgraded" me.
I searched the Apple web pages and DejaNews for references to newer
versions and didn't see any ...
If you'd like to email me 1.0.3, I'd really appreciate that.
Thanks for the reply,
