Blackjack Deluxe 2.4.3 was voted one of the 50 All-Time Best Macintosh
Shareware Games in 1996 by the staff at MacUser Magazine (now MacWorld.)

This version features casino Rules for Atlantic City, the Bahamas, France,
European Rules outside of France, Lake Tahoe, Louisianna Riverboats, Reno,
Downtown Vegas, Northern Nevada, Various Indian Reservations, and many
popular Casinos that have other bonuses not a part of the standard rule set.

Each casino has its own "Best Play Table", which you can review online, and
have the computer coach you when you make a misplay on any of the hands.
There is also a simulator mode, where you can watch million of 'trials' take
place, so you can understand why each play is deemed best.

Blackjack Deluxe also offers an intuitive card counting tutorial, teaching
15 different systems of play. You can practice using both the card counting
drill and the best play drill, which will grade you either in a specialized
"test mode" or while leisurely playing the game.

And what casino experience would be complete without a waitress? Blackjack
Deluxe lets you set the personality of your hostess, just as an added
tidbit.

Enjoy!

Subject: [*] QXP PhotoBook 3.0.3


QXP PhotoBook is a stand-alone utility which aids QuarkXPress users to
compile catalogs of images very quickly with a minimum of setup and user
interaction. Catalogs are saved as QuarkXPress documents, with an option to
then save as Acrobat PDF files. Some uses for QXP PhotoBook are printing out
thumbnails of images contained in a folder, or cataloguing a CD library of
images to QuarkXPress files.

QXP PhotoBook accepts any image format accepted by QuarkXPress including PDF
and GIF, as well as formats not supported by QuarkXPress, such as Adobe
Photoshop files, by choosing to import the PICT preview of images, or by
using third party XTensions. Users create catalogs by drag and dropping
files or folders onto PhotoBook's window or icon.

Many formatting options are provided, allowing users to choose page size,
colors, fonts, captions and headers and footers. The fully featured caption
option can - by using simple tags - automatically write a variety of
information about the image to the caption, such as the file's name, size or
dimensions, and more.

This versions corrects errors with captioning and importing of EXIF JPEGS
(digital files from cameras).

VCD Player 1.5.2

VCD Player simplifies the process of playing video compact discs on your
Mac. With most other players, you only get video in a tiny area of your
screen, or in an area surrounded by a huge border of some sort. VCD Player
smoothes the video playback process and allows you to watch full-screen
movies in the MPEG format, without any headache-inducing distortion to make
the movie unwatchable. There are various configurable options that control
sound and playback, and just as with a sound-only CD player, you can control
which track to start watching. VCD Player can remember where you stopped
playing the movie after you quit the program, restarted your Mac, or even
changed to another disc then changed back.

System Requirements
- Power PC
- QuickTime 2.5 or later
- QuickTime MPEG Extension 1.0 or later

What's new?
- VCD Player now supports chapter list (if available).
