Question: How to use .sit files? Kris - NewSqueaker

Answer: .sit files are archives in the 'stuffit' format. There are utility programs for example 'AlladinExpander' for MSWindows to unpack these files.

Question: Is it possible to install Squeak automatically, without the manual process of compilation and installation quite impossible for a unexperienced programmer like me? Using Mac OS X, each software is usually installed by a package simple to install, automatic or with few step by steps? Michel - future new Squeaker

Answer: I'm not sure where you got that information, but from what I understand (I'm a newbie Squeaker too), it should be a simple process. You should be able to download the sit file here:

ftp://st.cs.uiuc.edu/pub/Smalltalk/Squeak/3.5/mac/Squeak3.5-current-MacOS-Full.sit

Just decompress that, and you should be good to go!

Question: What ever happened to the Squeak Documentation Project, is it just me or is there a feeling of holding off on everything till Croquet takes shape, is there a well-frequented irc channel for Squeakers, and is there a better place for me to be asking these goofy questions?
