Dear Colleagues:

To those of you using the "Freiburg Acuity (and Contrast) Test (FrACT)" 
programme: A Happy New Year to you (and to all the others as well ;-)!

After countless requests I have finally re-implemented the weathered 
Macintosh version <http://www.ukl.uni-freiburg.de/aug/mit/bach/fat/> in 
Flash, so it now runs on the 3 major platforms Linux, Macintosh and 
Windows. It is not too well tested yet, but you may want to take a peek 
at <http://www.ukl.uni-freiburg.de/aug/mit/bach/fat_demo/>. Nice & 
thoughtful feedback welcome, I (& FrACT) have always profited 
enormously from your advice.

-- The new version does not yet do contrast testing. 
-- The new version will still have bugs. Should the programme act 
strangely, simply quit (and restart) it
-- For reliable results you need to calibrate and apply common sensory 
testing sense
-- The download link to the "old" version is broken right now, will 
work again tomorrow (after the site has been updated through the 
-- If you really want to use it, consider a remote subject entry keypad 
(see 'Tips' at  <http://www.ukl.uni-freiburg.de/aug/mit/bach/fat/> 
further down)

All the best, Michael.
