In my preferences folder I have two files I can't identify:Myriad and Multiprocessing API Library. Anyone know what they are connected with??
And while I've got your attention , I was wondering if I can put any associated extentions (like OpenTransport or Draw Sprocket) into a single folder (named Draw Sprockets or OpenTransport) without screwing anything up?

Myriad : don't know, sound like it belings to an application. I bet that you can remove it.
Multiprocessing API Library: if you don't have a multi-processor Mac, trash it without worry.

If you are running OS 9, many descriptions are available to you from extentions manager.

As for moving things into their own folder, I think that is ok. Try it an if things go awry, put 'em back.

Myriad was a font that came with ATM Deluxe a few years back. Not sure what your pref file is tho...

And yes, you can dump unused extensions into a folder w/out harm.
