im a member on another mac related forum and everytime i see toast images posted inside of a .sit stuffit file
i literally cringe...
does anyone hear understand my reasoning for doing so?
am i the only one in the world that thinks this is entirely illogical + redundant???
for my sanities sake, can i hear from any other intelligent human beings, what do u think of this strategy ?
ive tried to explain that this is not neccessary, that a toastfile is already a binary format, immune to the
resource fork woes of old,
what argument can i bring to the table to prove to these people that this is not something that u should do?
again and again?
toast files are already semi-compressed binary format are they not?? placing a toast image inside of a stuffit file..
what are your thoughts??? would u do this? would u laugh at someone who did this ? what do u think?
my view is that this is an approach coming from an uneducated perspective of being afraid of file corruption..
and its a bad old habit that the mac community used to have.. putting everything (and i mena EVERYTHING) inside of stuffit files
rather then using macbinary encoding.. (encode to .bin)
