MAC problems when sending compressed fileThis is slightly off topic.
I compressed a file useing my MAC's 10.5.8 compression tool and sent it to a mate to up to a server. He unzipped it on his PC and up'd it to a server and we found that we had permission issues. looking at the files we saw that a lot of the code was in green. What seems to be happening is that the files become encrypted somehow. Here's a link to a forum discussing this issue and hope that this will help other MAC users just in case you stumble across this time waster.
If I only had an hour to chop down a tree... I'd spend 45 mins sharpening the axe.
