My object package for Max has just turned 10 years old. I hope you'll pardon a proud parent for feeling some excitement on the occasion :-).
The TapTools objects actually started in response to interchanges on the precursor to this forum (the old McGill University Max email list). In October 2002 they made the move to a commercial package so I could justify the time I was spending to support to the objects.
Sorry for the commercially nature of this. I just could never have imagined when I started writing these externs that they would still be going strong 10 years later! Thanks to all of you who have supported them over the course of time, and I hope they've been as big a blessing to you as they have been to me!
