This section features reader responses to Ambrosia's software & service. We will include the good with the bad, and address any problems brought to our attention. These are real people writing real letters about real issues. Feel free to drop us a line.
Just a note to advise you that I'm 54.4 years old (12-unit system) and have never enjoyed computer gaming more. I've had a Mac since 1984. Today I am the proud new owner of a Power Computing PowerTowerPro 225 with 320 meg of ram, 2- and a 4-gig 7200 rpm internal HDs, as well as internal zip & jaz drives. Pure computing was more fun then -- you had to guess what was wrong more often than now and ANY game was strategically important to one's ego. I even played (tested?) some of Andrew Welch's early efforts, the names of which are long gone from my psyche. Today's games (especially Ambrosia's) are far more appealing IMHO, to all age groups... I don't see ANY gender OR age gap and sincerely hope Ambrosia's crew continue. To contrast with some other commercial gaming crews, most games are nitch oriented. Yes, there will always be a demand for games, at all age levels. Long live Ambrosia!The best part about this job is informing parents (and grandparents) how to clear the high scores in Bubble Trouble. You do it by holding the Option key down when clicking on the Scores graphic. Go Granny!

I wasn't sure if it was true at first but I think... [sob] I'm a Bubble Trouble addict! Ever since my friend beat my high score I've been determined to reclaim my throne... I'm glad to say that I have with a high score of 71,114! I don't know if that's good or anything but... It's the best I could do... Also I really like Avara and Escape-Velocity. Keep on pumping those games out (I plan to register mine ASAP). As always you guys rule... LONG LIVE AMBROSIA! LONG LIVE HECTOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!Hey, keep tryin'. If Hector can open his cage door himself, then you can overcome your obstacle. At least you weren't meant to fly ;)
I want you to know how wonderful your Easy Envelopes shareware is. I had to address approximately 100 wedding invitation envelopes and after spending much time trying to get other programs to work, my sister told me about yours. It worked so easily, quickly and perfectly, I couldn't believe it. Thank you, thank you. My future daughter-in-law thinks I am super, but I know it was you.And thank you for the glowing endorsement. We wish the happy couple the best on their travels together. Um, is there any cake left?

We love MacAddict, thanks for supporting them. The four year-old says "thanks for putting in a demo and we like it."We have to give an official "Thanks" to MacAddict Magazine and everyone at Imagine publishing. They have been instrumental in getting our products to those who are not yet online, and we wish them the best of success in their inaugural year. See them at a newsstand near you!

You have had my registration fee for 8 hours and you have not acknowledged it! To get rid of this message please remit receipt and license number. Thank you.We must apologize to everyone who may have been mislead by our online registration process. We have a system set up that processes our credit card charges once a day, and this fact tends to stretch out the process somewhat. Normal turnaround time for an order is 24 to 48 hours, excluding weekends. We are currently working on making the Web based registration system more informative. However, if you ever have questions or concerns, please contact the Tech support department.

WINDOWS TIPS AND TRICKSNovel ideas, eh?
TIP #1: If you need to highlight a lot of files in a windows application, simply highlight the first file, move to the last file, hold down the shift key, and click on the last file. All files in between will be highlighted. This comes in real handy if you need to delete a lot of files or move them to another directory. It's also handy for deleting a lot of messages in your mailbox.
TIP #2: You can copy a file to another directory using windows explorer by holding down the control key when you drag and drop the file on the directory you are copying the file to.
