Other important tricks & reminders:
1. Do NOT use Internet Explorer, at least for the time being. (IE won't work.)If you do not wish to use a browser to run MarshalPlan, you still have the option of downloading MarshalPlan. To do so, go here and follow the instructions.
2. You will have to accept a plug-in.
3. When the browser page MarshalPlan appears, click on the button "Enter Marshalplan." If nothing seems to happen, shrink your browser or look under your browser window (but do not close your browser). You should see the stack "Network Manager." You are in MarshalPlan. Click buttons (links).
As always, please keep in mind that MarshalPlan is not a prototype of a real-world real-time operating system. In its present configuration, it is more akin to a tinker-toy, suitable for use mainly in the classroom.
The most important part of this message: I want your comments, suggestions, brickbats, and whatnot.
In a few weeks, I will have a short "white paper" explaining the functions, aspirations, limitations, and theoretical premises and implications of MarshalPlan. Stay tuned.
