I think the problem you are having is that the end of line characters
are not correct for the Macintosh. You need make sure that you save
the file out as a Macitosh text file. BBEdit should be able to
handle this with no problems.

I'm having trouble with the nicknames list. I downloaded the latest
version (0.83b2 [PPC]) and received with it a list of reflector
nicknames. However, when I tried to use them, no IP would show up in
the address box under "connect." I didled with it and got the IP for
the first address on the list to show up, but now it shows up in all
addresses. I took the list into BBEdit and manually copied and pasted
all the IPs into the appropriate places, but when I put it back into
the Preferences folder, it (the nickname list) went back to
containing the IP of the first name on the list. So far, I've
manually edited about half the nicknames (that's a loooong list),
but I just know there's got to be an easier way. Is there?

I'm using: Power Mac8100AV; TCP/IP; CU-SeeMe 0.83b2(PPC).
