    I had similar problems downloading from I tried to
download Geekgas. The source file would not unstuff completely and StuffIt
Expander complained thoughout the process. The package I downloaded would
not install on the Newton ... bot the Newt and the Mac hung.
    I tried other software from the site with similar results.
    I suspect the host server has stripped some of the required file info.
    I had no problems with packages/archives from other sites so I've pretty
much ruled out problems with my Mac/Newt hardware and software.
