I purchased and 100%'d Huniecam so quickly that I still get friends shaming me over it. And I deserve to be shamed. But I did not praise the game. I called it fucked up. That's how fucked up it is: it's up there with Princess Maker as far as poster body counts.

photoshop would do a slices export with some light html to hold it in place. it'd generate mouse behaviors from layers so you could make an image button that was textless and i'm guessing also not a button

it was very much a weak attempt to offer webpage functionality before they shrugged and bought macromedia wholesale

It was not that weak at the time because literally everyone was making web pages with sliced images in tables for a couple years.

tables for layout really hosed up the web for a long time, and then CSS came along and fixed it, except MS were too dumb to understand what the words "height" and "width" mean, so everyone had to write hacky css for years instead :doh:

true, true. as a competitor to full dreamweaver it wasn't much but as a page maker it was handy. i only remember it because i used it for sites like everyone else back then lol

Not funny but tech poo poo I just remembered: Truetype typefaces (can) contain text. A lot of the time it's a description of the typeface and/or info about the foundry/designer. But you couldn't view it without installing an extra tool in Windows Whatever.

posting about a-10 attack! in the donkey tech thread reminded me...

there was a mac updater engine that allowed itself to be shipped configured only to check for files to update by matching the name of the file to its own list... and nothing else. also, if you didn't have whatever file it was looking for, it would go ahead and tell you "Couldn't find $THIS_FILE. Exiting."

since it didn't check filesize, checksum, or contents in any way, if you were dedicated enough, you could fail your way through creating however many text files named $THIS_FILE, $THAT_FILE, and so on, until you had created a directory full of text files that the updater then happily replaced with actual, functioning content. that's my "how i got to play a-10 cuba" success story, though i never did find another software vendor that goofed it up as bad as parsoft (rip).
