Highlights Of This Issue
I announce the coming flood of Mac*Chat issues, ask for help in
widening Mac*Chat's readership, praise what I've seen so far of
the DayStar Mac clones, mention how to find out more about the
first narrow-focus software designed to help people who manage
groups of creative folks, and ask for feedback about a software
utility that greatly speeds-up transfer of large files over local
networks, Fred Rask tells us about a great source for reference
materials on the Web, I tell folks how to find a solid Mac
Consultant, Gordon Charlton tells how to delight your child, I
reveal the new Primus web-site, the flood of PowerBook tips
starts to arrive, we learn how to get help on downloading files
from the Internet through plain-old e-mail, and I throw up my
hands in despair over tracking-down dependable Internet Service
Providers to recommend.
