Ircle AppleScript Resource Closing! Public Access Software Shifts Gears
Public Access Software, developers of MiniCalendar and other Mac apps, is shifting their focus to become a full-time MacOS software development house. In light of this change, they're shutting down their Ircle Scripting Resources web site. According to Public Access Software:

Public Access Software is reluctantly closing the doors to its Ircle Scripting Resources (ISR) web site formerly dedicated to promoting AppleScripting for the Ircle IRC client on the Mac OS.

Because of the shift into full time Mac OS software development by Public Access Software, there are not enough resources to dedicate to a program-specific AppleScripting web site.

All materials will be removed, including FTP archives, by the end of this week.

Anyone who wants to grab the source code to a handful of original works from Public Access Software will want to check in over the next few days. Possible items for release include "WordScore", the first full featured IRC gaming AppleScript for the Ircle IRC client and miscellaneous bits and pieces collected over the years.

Public Access Software will continue to develop its leading products which include Sherlock Menu, MiniCalendar and soon sLog 3.0 which will incorporate the former "MacStat" product into a major new release along with a host of other new features rivaling similar products.

The ISR will not be handed over or sublet to third parties, once it's closed it's closed.

The Mac Observer Spin: Get 'em while they're still available, folks. Many of the AppleScripts available from the ISR web site are very powerful indeed, and can serve as the basis for learning more about the finer points of AppleScript itself. While it's nice to see a company become a full-time Mac development house, it's sad to see free resources like this disappear as the result of that transformation. Still, Public Access Software is to be commended for having maintained this resource in the first place.
