Is there some page somewhere that has an older
code-example? A reference would be most helpful.

Ok, you have downloaded the latest 1.1 version which
includes the first security implementation. The
"two-step dance" you refer to is required to ensure
the security of your database. You are supposed to
insert your keychain-microdrive to get access to the
If you don't want security then you should turn it off
or use the 1.0 version which does not include
security. The swiki has up-to-date documentation for
how to turn it off. Please see:

Ah, ok, the Magma Seaside demo is still based on 1.0.
In 1.0 there is no security, so the demo is able to
use #connectAs: aString. In 1.1, a MagmaUser with
various credentials is supplied automatically.
I have updated the instructions for the "Magma and
Seaside" page to load "Magma1.0" instead of the newer
1.1 until we update the demo. Sorry about that

#connect is the right method. The initial connection
is a known to be a bit slow (about 1-2 seconds) but
has an easy solution. Just preallocate your next
session in a background process so it is ready to go.

Hard to know what the problem is here.. No one else

If I may assist you with Magma, please let me know.
