This collection contains the contents of Kelley's Jaz disk used for Toy Fair 4 and Toy Fair 5 (1998 and 1999), hosted by the Toy Industry Association, Inc. The disk appears to contain two version of the Redbeard software used for demonstration purposes. As of the date of ingest, the CAH has been unable to play the demos.

Metadata notes: Heather Kelley, listed in the Dublin Core records as "contributor:author" is better articulated as Producer-Designer. The specific file creators were unidentified, however, Chris Spears, as the lead programmer at Human Code, most likely created a majority of the source code files. Additionally, the date used for "date created" field was the "last modified" date taken from the disks.

The collection consists of a tarball* of the entire disk and copies of the source code, audio and graphics files, and game resource files (specifically .omt files). "Last modified" file dates on this disk are as follows: earliest - July 11, 1995 at 09:50:00; latest - February 3, 1999 at 01:23:52; average - December 28, 1998 at 17:56:20. The collection title is as written on the disk: ARGH (TOY FAIR 4).

*A tarball is like an archival zip file. It compiles all files selected and creates a single bitstream (a single file) with the file extension .tar. In the case of this collection, the tarballs have also been compressed using gzip, and have the extension .tar.gz. They can be uncompressed using 7-zip software ( http://www.7-zip.org/ ), or using the standard command line tools. In a Linux environment, for example, you can extract the contents of a tarball by issuing the following command:

tar -xzvf filename.tar.gz
