    Download Success?

    Well,

    Has anyone managed to successfully download this from the Archei site? There seems to be an infinite loop of entering an email address, to being taken back to the page to enter an email address. Since it won't accept the same email address twice, then no download.

    Hmmmmm.

    Not Here

    Tried time and time again but got nothing to download. I entered ten email addresses before giving up (one@mydomian.com ... ten@mydomain.com) and still no luck.

    some kinda scam

    They seem to just be harvesting email addresses, rather than giving away software...

    Beginner info on MacGimp?

    I saw this offer and went to the MacGimp page to investigate. I would really like to investigate open source software like this and others, but have never installed anything of this type. So I went to the MacGimp page, and couldn't find a hint of an FAQ, or resources/installation info anywhere.

    I'm not a novice in regards to using a Mac or with experience in OS X, but I am green when it comes to anything open source related like this -- e.g. X11, fink, gimp, open office, etc. But I'd really like to learn how to install and use them. Can anyone recommend some good primers online on how this all works?

    Thanks --

    www..com

    The download link tries to go to www..com.

    I'm glad I always use emailias to give everyone a unique email address so I know who's sending the spam and I can kill just their address.

    Fink

    Fink. Install fink. It has an installer program so It is brain dead easy. Then use Fink commander GUI that comes with it and find Gimp in that HUGE list of free Open Source programs.

    Their Free Gimp. Simple and whatever. Also their is Film Gimp in there.
