Subject: [*] Circles 1.2 for MacOS X - a simple game

Circles is a simple game for MacOS X, written in Cocoa.

The goal is to fill the circles in the upper half of the game - window with
circle segments. It is a little bit Tetris like - but just some more

I hope you like it

Version 1.2 can change the game principle (look)

Subject: [*] APC Tracker 1.0 - APCUPSd client for MacOS

I have uploade the file APC Tracker 1.0.sit.hqx to the FTP server.

The equinux APC Tracker is a APCUPS compatible client application, that
powers off a Macintosh client computer regularly once power is
interrupted. When starting up, the application connects to a APCUPS
network server (mostly under Linux/Windows), that is directly connected
to the UPS. The server sends a signal to the client in case of a power
failure. This is a fully-functional demo until you register.

Requirements: Mac OS 8.5 or higher or Mac OS X 10.0 or higher

# Interarchy 5.0 with FTP Disk

# These release notes were written by
# Andrew Tomazos on the 16th of August, 2001.

# Home Page:
# Author Email:

# This unlicensed evaluation version will be available until 1st
# October, 2001.

Interarchy is award-winning Internet file transfer software for the
Macintosh. It enables a Macintosh user to access files on other
computers over the Internet. Interarchy uses the standard Internet
protocols FTP and HTTP, so Interarchy can access files on virtually
any type of computer or device.

Version 5.0 introduces a major new feature called FTP Disk. This
feature allows you to access files on frequently-used servers with
any application in exactly the same way you access files on your hard
drive. Furthermore, an FTP Disk gives you instant access to files
even over a slow connection or while offline. It requires no
proprietary software on the remote computer, as it works via the
standard FTP protocol. The FTP Disk feature makes the process of
accessing an FTP server automatic, transparent and easy.

Interarchy 5.0 with FTP Disk runs natively on Mac OS X, Mac OS 9 or
Mac OS 8.

Interarchy was formerly known as Anarchie.

Further release notes can be found in the archive.
