A simple demo with a newpaper rack and newspaper. An exercise in avoiding ambiguity.

Created in response to a Forum thread (http://www.adrift.org.uk/cgi/iB3/ikonboard.cgi?s=12a57c5b09b6759b4a5e231c6b77030c;act=ST;f=4;t=4579)

Quote from Amanda: "There is nothing to this thing. A child could do it. Especially with ADRIFT. First the rack should be static. Second, your room description is horrible! Here? A place? I mean come on! Even for a demo, you can do better than that! And who needs to know how to create an object you can put things in with an object inside it? I have only been using ADRIFT for less than a month and I could have told you that straight off. Sorry to say but this has got to be one of the most useless demos I have ever seen!"

Just because the writer of this demo wrote a less than glowing review of your boyfri- sorry, John Greer’s demo, is no reason to go writing a bad review of this one.

It is quite possible for a newpaper rack to be portable (the ones in my house are) and therefore a dynamic object rather than static. When you use Adrift for a bit you will soon learn about ambiguity problems.
