Regarding "Boston" source

This is a bit of an odd situation... I recently received an email with the message line "Looking for the sources to Boston: Mouse in the Sewer", containing only "TIA!" (Which I'm guessing is "Thanks in Advance") as the message content.

The odd bit: Mail says that it's from <insert email here because it can't be a good idea to publicly post the email address>@apple.com.

What's up with this?

What's so odd about it?

Did you tell them where to get the source?

Yes TIA is usually thanks in advance.

Apparently nothing... I just thought it odd to be receiving an email from Apple regarding Boston source code. Rolleyes

Well, not everybody at Apple is all-knowing. Maybe it's just a secretary who wants to get into game programming and really likes Boston. Ninja

You'd think they'd write a bit more in the email, something along the lines of "Hi, blah blah, I'm from Apple, blah, liked the game, want the source, blah". It seems a bit shady the email is so short...

Remember a little old Mac app called Konfabulator? Sounds like Boston is next!

(this is a joke, by the way)
