Discussion of adding drawing program stuff to FTP server

Michael Thwaites ( recently posed to me the following
question, and I thought I would post it and my plans to the Forum and get
some feedback from others.

A member of (subscriber to ?) the forum and I have already send each other
Cabri-Geometry figures and macros directly. Is there a place for public
figures/macro's on the FTP server? If so, I assume there would be a place
for Sketchpad users also. There is even this third program "Inventor" that
might be worthwhile supporting - although we could wait for the demand.

As I told Michael, he's just a step ahead of the game. This has been the
plan since the beginning, we just hadn't done it yet. I think we were
waiting for some more discussion on the topic on the Forum. Why wait?

We're thinking of making another directory on the ftp server called
drawing.programs. This will contain subdirectories for each of the
geometry drawing programs folks are interested in. Files will be stored in
compressed and binhexed form, usually as self-extracting archives. We will
store both sketches and scripts/macros, possibly in separate subdirectories
if supply warrants it.

I suppose we could also have available any activities using these programs
that teachers may wish to share.

These are my initial thoughts after talking with Michael about this a bit
last night. I'll probably create these directories this week, and will
announce when they're ready, but let's have some more input from folks as
to what y'all want to see there.
