This collection contains a single folder containing seven .frk files, all of which appear to have been hidden system files automatically created by a Macintosh, most likely running OS 9 or earlier. Examination of the seven files with a hex editor showed no human-readable information in any of them.

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. "Last modified" file dates on this disk are as follows: earliest - August 24, 1999 at 18:24:42; latest - August 27, 1999 at 14:18:52; average - August 26, 1999 at 04:21:47. The collection title is as written on the disk: ARGH!

*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
