Take A Break: revised version posted

Take A Break: revised version posted

Readers continue to report a myriad of alternative methods to quit the Finder, including several we have covered here months before (such as Terminator Strip). Bear in mind that in Mac OS 8, the Finder has undergone a major rewrite. The way memory is allocated into System and Application heaps has also changed. As a result, some methods useful in older systems make not work in Mac OS 8. If they do work, fine. Otherwise, you will need to seek other methods. Take a Break was one such possible method.

As to the problem with Take A Break (reported last time), the author has sent a revised version of the Take A Break patch that should fix it. (If it doesn't, I am sure I will be hearing from you!)
