Meanwhile, posters have been amusing themselves with bugs in Digital Webster. (For a good time, try looking up the words "neil" and "spaz.") These bugs have been reported to NeXT time and again since Release 1.0, but fixing them doesn't seem to be a high priority.
Action in the programmer's forum seems to be equally divided between those who know NEXTSTEP inside out and those who are just starting out. Comp.sys.next.programmer is also the place to catch job postings from Pencom and Systemhouse, both of whom seem to be hiring a dozen new programmers every two or three weeks.
Lastly, consultants who bill by the hour should check out Stopwatch, a time-tracking and invoice-generating application that Rich Plevin has made available for anonymous FTP from cs.orst.edu. The app, which comes with source, keeps track of how much time you spend hacking and then prints a bill for your time.
