Did that. Tells me it is an "Unexpected File format"

Apart from watching the "watch" and having the app crap out nothing happened.

I am now intrigued. This isn't the first time this has happened to me and I am
wondering if something weird happens during the "decompression"? Still have three
real cool files sitting on the desktop and i can't launch them. Does this suck or

BTW. Am quite familiar with ResEdit, Frederico, been using it since 86/87 or there
abouts. The app still scares the beejeebers out of me because I have seen far to
many newbies to the Mac seriously screw it up because they didn't have a clue
regarding what they were doing.
