Thanks!

Thanks!

To Cliff Colby, for his incredible patience while I worked on this book. I've never had a book slip so far off the original deadline and I appreciate Cliff's calmness—even when I started getting uncharacteristically whiny! Next time will be better—I promise!

To Victor Gavenda, for his technical editing skill. Victor cleared up a few misunderstandings I had about Mac OS X and provided a more up-to-date diagram of the Mac OS X architecture. He confirmed what I've suspected for some time: that Mac OS X is more complex than it appears on the surface.

To the two other Peachpit authors who helped me with this book: Ron Hipschman and Ethan Wilde. Ron was the Unix guru on this project, churning out brand new material about Unix for Mac OS users. He wrote so much, we had to turn it into two chapters. Ethan, the Peachpit AppleScript expert, provided a customized excerpt from his book, AppleScript for Applications: Visual QuickStart Guide.

To Nancy Ruenzel, Marjorie Baer, and the other powers-that-be at Peachpit Press, for continuing to put up with me, despite ever-more-frequent whining. I will stop.

To Connie Jeung-Mills, for her sharp eyes and gentle layout editing. We make a great team!

To the rest of the folks at Peachpit Press—especially Gary-Paul, Mimi, Trish, Hannah, Paula, Zigi, and Keasley—for doing what they do so well.

To Grace Kvamme at Apple Computer, Inc., for helping me get the software I needed to complete this book on a timely (well, sort of) basis. And to the rest of Apple Computer, Inc., for reinventing and continuing to improve the world's best operating system.

Finally, to Mike, for the usual reasons.
