You recently said:

"This [the technical manual] will be coming out as the B5 Security Manual
from Boxtree (likely to then be reprinted by Del Rey), and in the B5
informational CDrom now being finished."

Please, please tell me that the CD will be multi-platform -- that it will
support Macintosh systems and clones along with PCs and their clones. The
Mac may not have as big a customer base, but it isn't anything to sneeze
at, either.

Neither I, nor most of my friends, have been able to enjoy the B5 screen
saver and we don't want to be left out of the informational CD, too.

I've been busy converting all my co-workers to become B5 addicts like
myself (Steve actually snuck into an empty back office the other day to
watch War Without End parts 1 and 2, because he couldn't wait until
evening!). I'm sure that at least most of us will want to buy the CD, if it
runs on Mac systems.

If you have any influence on this decision, please encourage
multi-platform. If it is developed correctly it isn't that hard to make it
support multiple platforms. If the development team doesn't know how, have
them contact my husband -- he makes multi-platform CD's for a living.

The CD will be multiple platform, as Joe uses several Intels, John
several Macs, and I use a PowerMac, 32 NT's and 24 Alphas.  We gotta be
able to run the darn thing ourselves!
