Hi Y'all,

I've been in stealth mode for a while now, but I wanted to stick my head up to see if anyone knows how to contact Allen Smith.

I've been steadily maintaining Bricksmith for myself (e.g. fixing crash bugs) and was thinking a point release to update it for modern versions of Mac OS X would be a win. But I haven't heard from Allen in years -- I lost email contact with him around when he stopped posting on these forums.

If anyone who has been around LDraw for a while knows how to reach Allen directly, please contact me. I'd like to ping him before doing anything as drastic as a hard fork of Bricksmith.

Thanks
Ben

Hi,

interesting news. I am new to Apple-Development. So, I first thought to do simple technical conversions like converting to ARC and modern Objective-C. But I soon realized that it is not that simple - and because I am a novice, I am stuck.
But I am happy to hear, that I am not the only one interested if Bricksmith development will progress.

Hi Ben,

Did you ever hear from Allen? We use Bricksmith *heavily* (all the models in all my books are done on Bricksmith) so anything that can increase stability on current versions of OSX I'm really interested in!
