    I just downloaded the latest version of amsn. After I unzip the bz2 file, when I double click on the dmg file, it says disk images failed to mount, reason: not recognized
    What's going on??

    Try downloading it not using Safari if you are.

    Safari for some bizarre reason will append an extension.

    Did you notice the difference in the filename/extension?

    Yeah Safari sometimes appends the .bz2 extension to some .dmg images. :confused:
