I'm currently visiting Southern California and was hoping to finish up enough of the program here to get an Alpha version in the hands of the testers by tomorrow, but I found that I'm missing most of the bitmaps I needed to do that. I could have sworn that I dumped the entire folder to the memory stick I brought, but only three of the 50-or-so BMPs made it onto the stick. I'll be going back home Tuesday or Wednesday, and then will need another good day of work before the program is in any kind of shape to hand over to the testing team.

What is different between this Alpha version and what you released earlier a couple weeks back?

More of the 3D background has been completed - empty space-holders being filled in and such.

How about a simple contest on the forum. The one winner will get to see a screen shot.

Ha - Yeah, the entry fee for the contest is $100. When we have 100 entries, a drawing will determine who gets to see a screen shot. There can be a new drawing every week, and I never have to actually come out with the program.

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you have a safe, healthy and happy one. Looking forward to MA3 (as it appears is everyone else).

At the moment I have MA 2.6 for Mac with 28 fish. I have a wide sceen but sometimes the fish swim off the edge and out of view. Is there an update out for Mac that will correct that?

Meanwhile, Happy New Year, you guys!

Happy New Year to you as well! This is a feature, not a bug.

Mine does it too, the computer screen sides and top are not the actual glass walls of the aquarium. IMHO it feels like the fish have more freedom of motion as a result, not boxed in by the hard edges of my wide screen monitor. I'd go so far as to say that this is an artistic feature. Enjoy! And happy 2008!

I think Ed has been one of our best "official greeters" for quite some time, and as usual it is always appreciated Ed. Nice job.

Agreed, and Ed's also got the most hardcore hightech sig I've seen in quite some time. Go Ed!
