Who could pass up such a wonder?

But alas, it's of no use; I've a letch for the command line ftp fetch ... Mac Terminal works fine for that.
Oh, I'm so sorry to disappoint you, Steve! <g>

Sooner or later, and some more than others. At least mine keeps me entertained.

Ahah! This must be the new beta version that senses what you want microseconds before it's launched. Apparently it fetches your frontmost thought pattern and responds appropriately.

Apparently the concept was first promulgated by Microsoft but their software was (and still is) only capable of responding to Bill Gates' thought patterns. Whether or not they have had any success in responding to the wishes of normal users is thought doubtful.

This is definitely not a Microsoft idea!

Fetch, as you well know, is spare, clean, elegant and efficient. The developers have resisted all temptation to bloat it with icons, vibrant, clasing colours, or even grey. It's as close to black and white as possible with the OS X toolbox, and I love it.
