We promised. You believed us. Here it is: The third volume of the Developer CD Series, A Disc Called Wanda. Some of the hot new stuff includes AppleLink Offline!— a HyperCard snapshot of our online system, Developer University Stack— a stack that has the ability to automatically log into AppleLink and register you for our D.U. classes, and d e v e l o p— our quarterly technical journal, in searchable electronic splendor. Overall it's newer, better, more up to date, and has much fancier cover art. All the information, tools, and esoteric goodies you've come to expect are here, and more.

A note about the download available from above:
It had been created with Toast, so if there was any original sound track, it's no longer present on the image (it wasn't a bin/cue). Text in the ReadMe doc on the disk alludes to a sound-track which perhaps would be nice to have:

We've changed the way we do this since our last CD. Instead of a song or two by several contributors, we decided it would be cool to feature someone (or a group of someones). This issue we chose Cyan. This developer put together Cosmic Osmo, an interactive disk and CD-ROM based adventure in HyperCard. The music was written and performed by Robyn Miller and Rand Miller (they're brothers).

The upload is here now, only it's not the bin/cue the page's creator (miku2007) had mentioned. Appears to be the original data content only. If there were some music tracks included (and the ReadMe documentation alludes to this) it's missing because of the archiving method used to create this current image.

Can we have the upload soon please? It has been a while since the page was made.
