[Mac OS X TeX] Carbonized Excalibur: Status and Call for Help

Rick Zaccone


I have been working on carbonizing (carbonating?) Excalibur for the
past couple of weeks and I've made good progress.  It runs under MacOS
X with just one feature disabled.  In order for Excalibur to
automatically open the clipboard, I will need to change it so that it
supports carbon events.  This will add a couple more weeks (at least)
to my job.  At this point, it seems reasonable that I will have a
carbonized Excalibur ready in about a month.  Please don't hold me to
that though!

There is one other detail which I was hoping that someone could help
me with.  Excalibur needs some new 128x128 icons for MacOS X.  I have
no artistic ability and even if I did, I don't have the necessary
tools.  Is anyone willing to produce nice looking OS X icons for me?
If you are interested or you know a creative student who would like to
do it, please let me know.  Although Excalibur has 5 icons that it can
display, 4 of them are just variants of one another.

Okay, I've finally gotten the NT server rebuilt and restored (but
couldn't figure out how to get the RAID partition back on the internal
drive :(

So, here's a preview of the first, quick-and-dirty, let me re-draw the
icon as it exists now to get it out of my system 'n' get a feel for it
Excalibur icon.

The .icns file proper is at:

I've got some other concepts still on tap yet---some rough sketches I've
done with the kids in crayon :) One or two of them seem promising, will
have them up in some form or other over the weekend.
