Karlheinz Essl
fLOW (1998-2001)
ambient sound generator
http://www.essl.at/works/flow.html

fLOW 2.0 is a DSP computer program running on Apple Macintosh G3
machines. It generates an ever-changing and never repeating
soundscape in real time that fills the space with flooding sounds
that resemble - metaphorically - the timbres of water, fire, earth,
and air.

fLOW 2.0 is released as shareware. Please register your copy to
ensure the further development of this program. You can purchase a
registration code for $ 15.00 online from KAGI. Only registered
users can record the output to disk and include their own sound
material.

System requirements

* Apple PowerPC G3 with at least 16 MB of free RAM
* MacOS 8.6 or better (9.1 recommended)
* Currently fLOW only works with the built-in sound hardware of your
Apple Macintosh computer using the SoundManager. ASIO drivers or
external hardware is currently not supported. If you have such gear,
it is recommended to start your computer with all system extensions
off (by pressing the shift-key during startup) so that there will not
be a system extension conflict. In fact, fLOW does not require any
system extension, only the SoundManager that is already included in
the Mac OS.

Subject: [*] Suck It Down! 1.1


Do you frequent web sites that have thumbnail pictures that are links to
images or movies? Like Aunt Mildred's photo page, or the digital pictures
from your last vacation. Suck It Down! will grab all of those images and put
them into a folder of your choice. It will do this without you even having
to go to the page.

Not only will it download the pictures for you, it will display JPEG and GIF
images as it is downloading, giving you a mini slide show. And after the
download is complete you can click or key through the images and throw away
any you don't like. You can also open them in their native application.

Features:

*Downloads only image files that are linked off the specified URL.
*An easy to use dialog for entering Suck options.
*AppleScript support.
*Displays images as they are downloaded.
*Allows viewing, trashing, and display in Finder of downloaded images.
*MacOS X support. You can now use Suck It Down under OSX.
*Asynchronous downloads. You can suck a new URL and then start sucking
another one as soon as the first starts. Progress information for the
current item being downloaded is in the suck window URL list.
*Update check reminder. You can now set a preference to remind you to
check for update's to Suck It Down from inside the program. You can
set the reminder to remind you never, weekly, monthly or daily.
*Skip URL command. You can now tell Suck It Down! to skip over the
currently downloading URL if there is a problem with it.
*Added PDF file sucking. PDF is now one of the file endings Suck It
Down! will download.
*Automatic updating.

Subject: [*] Tex-Edit Plus 4.1.3b2J - Japanese Version

This is the Japanese version of the Tex-Edit Plus package.

Tex-Edit Plus is a scriptable, styled text editor that fills the gap
between Apple's bare-bones SimpleText and a full-featured word
processor. It's fast, efficient, and has a clean, uncluttered interface.
It's also great for cleaning up text which is transmitted over the
Internet.

Tex-Edit Plus features: PowerPC native (fat), extensive munging
abilities, unlimited file size, Drag&Drop support, AppleScript support,
Word Services support, Speech Manager support, picture handling, sound
handling, movie handling, ability to create SimpleText Read-Only
documents, and much more. System 7.0 or better required.

Tex-Edit Plus can read and write UTF-16 (unicode) text. The new file
format is fully backward compatible with previous versions.

Tex-Edit Plus supports unlimited undo and redo.

Each paragraph can be formatted individually. These new paragraph
settings include text justification (left, center, right, full), space
above, space below, left indent, right indent, first line indent (or
hanging outdent), and bottom border (in one of several line styles).
Each paragraph can also have its own line spacing (in one point
increments) and dominant text direction (useful for right-to-left
scripts).

NEW IN 4.1.2 -- Tex-Edit Plus 4.1.2 features improved implementation of
the External Editor Protocol. The External Editor Protocol allows
Tex-Edit to act as a text editor for an ftp client such as Fetch,
Interarchy, NetFinder, or Transmit. Tell Fetch, Interarchy, etc. to
"Edit with Tex-Edit". When Tex-Edit saves the document, the remote file
is automatically updated by Fetch. Slick!

The character count/status area (bottom left corner of each window) now
continuously displays the line and column of the insertion point. If a
single character (byte) is selected, then its hex value is displayed. If
multple characters are selected, then the selection size (character
count) is displayed.

A new multiple undo window property can be used to turn off the
unlimited undo/redo feature. Setting multiple undo to false will
dramatically speed up some long, repetitive scripts.

The minimum window size has been decreased and several small bugs were
fixed.

Want to carry your MP3 collection with you? Travis Butler compares
the Archos Jukebox with the previously reviewed Nomad Jukebox.
Security is on Glenn Fleishman's mind now that the WEP privacy
protocol used by Apple's AirPort and other 802.11b wireless
networking devices has been shown to be easily broken. In the
news, Microsoft appeals the monopoly ruling to the Supreme Court,
Apple discontinues KidSafe, and Maxum releases PageSentry 4.0.

Subject: [Q] Slow posting and email in Newswatcher via ISDN from home.

In Newswatcher 2.2.2, why is posting and email sooo slooow from my home?

Here's my setup (UCC = university computer center):

Home to UCC --- isdn--Ascend Pipeline 50--iBook 2001
Office to UCC --- iBook 2001

The News server is: DNews version 5.3d2 SO

Software: MacOS 9.1, Eudora, MS Explorer, Newswatcher 2.2.2,
MT-Newswatcher, etc.

Both Eudora and MS Explorer work fine both at home and at work. The
combination isdn and Ascend Pipeline 50 is remarkably fast, for
mypurpose. I've set the Pipeline 50 static mappings to DST and LOC
Port=113, which make Eudora and MS Explorer go faster.

Newswatcher works fine at work, but when I use the same iBook at home
everything bogs down and becomes very slow.

Some observations:

The Pipeline 50 is set to time out after N idle seconds.

Email only: Newswatcher seems to wait until the Pipeline times outs
before returning control to the user. Newswatcher has sent the email.
MT-Newswatcher sends the message immediately and everything is fine.

Posting with Newswatcher 2.2.2: First I wait; if I wait long enough,
the message appears that Newswatcher has lost contact with the news
server (after the pipeline times out).

Surprisingly, after I wait a while and cancel the post before the
Pipeline times out, the message appears that Newswatcher has already
sent the article and is waiting for confirmation.

Posting with MT-Newswatcher: The error message -48 appears almost immediately.

Lastly: While I read a News post, the Pipeline usually times out and
the connection is lost. Then when I select a new article, Pipeline
activates the isdn connection but Newswatcher always returns the lost
connection message. When I then re-select the article, everything is
fine.

Subject: usb driver for joystick

I am looking for a driver for either the thrustmaster topgun joystick or the
microsoft sidewinder USB so that I can use either joystick with older
non-Gamesprocket aware games. USB overdrive is nice but a little difficult
to configure sometimes. I like the convinience of the old Mousestick 2 or
ADB Sidewinder joystick drivers and their setup procedures.

As a second choice, is there a joystick sold that has its own driver for
older games? Also is there a steering wheel that has a driver too? the
Microsoft steering wheel is Gamesprockets aware but NASCAR isn't and USB
overdrive doesn't seem to work with steering wheels.

I like the new stuff but I'd like to run some older flight sims and be able
to copy/backup the settings easily.

TIA
John
