Subject: [*] Checkers (WCC Lite) Description

The graphic in this program are amazing, the play is superior to every
other checkes program on the market, and the program is free. The download
is defintely
worth it!

World Championship Checkers (WCC) describes a suite of products. They are
the most advanced software programs to play the game of checkers (or
"draughts" to our friends across the Atlantic) that you can obtain. This
"lite" version is bundled with:
* An Opening Book containing more than 200,000 positions.
* A RAM-resident database containing more than 148 million positions.
* A disk-based "Perfect Play" database with over 7 million positions.
* An engine that searches 12-18 plies ahead (you set the depth.)

This version is "visit-ware". If you like it, all that we ask is that
you stop by our website at http://www.InfiniteLoop.org sometime and take a
look around. We have much stronger versions for sale; one that has beaten the
human world champion many times.
Opening Book

The Opening Book contains an abundance of the strongest moves ever made by
some of the most brilliant players ever to have lived. In this sense, you are
playing not just WCCÖ Lite, but every one of those
considered to be the Greatest Masters of All-Time! Some of our book play
predates the birth of the United States of America, taken from a volume
published in 1756!

If you play a move that is in the book, aggressively counterplay and deadly
traps are instantly available. Sometimes WCCÖ will make a move that
intentionally throws away a checker, or maybe even two checkers, but a few
moves later, you find yourself being triple-jumped as a piece lands in the
King row!
If you play a move that is not in the book, WCCÖ will seach every position
between 12-18 plies into the future in order to determine its best move.

RAM Database of 148 Million Positions+

WCCÖ has two kinds of endgame database. One exists in RAM, and is probed as
the look-ahead search encounters positions. This one has every position
involving 5 or fewer pieces mapped to a win, loss, or draw.

Since pieces come off the board "no matter what", WCCÖ can probe ahead and
avoid the losses in its database, play for wins, and if it is in any kind of
trouble, it will head for a draw. It takes a very strong player to defeat
this version of WCCÖ Lite.

Disk Database of 7 Million Positions+

CuliDataBase 5.9 (PPC)

What it is: Recipe management tool for food lovers
Author: Ton Brand
Company: Ton's Software
License: Shareware US$8
Computer: Mac with PowerPC processor
MacOS: 7.5.3 or later
Abstract:
CuliDataBase is an application for managing culinary recipes. There are PPC
and 68K versions; with this you have the PPC version.
A simple click with the mouse lets you put ingredients on a shopping list.
Recipes can be scaled up or down according to number of servings, while the
singular or plural form of the ingredients' names is taken care of as well,
so '1 bay leaf ' will become '2 bay leaves' or vice versa. This works in
English, French and Dutch.
To illustrate your recipes, you can import pictures of dishes.
Finally, you've got a list with culinary terms that you can extend yourself,
and an Internet menu that you can modify to go to your favorite sites.
An unregistered copy of CuliDataBase is fully functional, apart from the
export and print functions.
Version 5.9 also runs in the classic environment of Mac OS X.

Subject: [*] FileBuddy 6.1.3J - Japanese Version


This is the Japanese version of the FileBuddy package.

File Buddy is quite simply the most powerful and popular high-level file
utility available for your Macintosh.

File Buddy 6 requires a PowerPC-based Macintosh with System 7.6 or
later. File Buddy 5 is available for 68K Macintoshes. The latest Japanese
release of the carbon version of File Buddy (File Buddy 7)
can be downloaded from .

*View and edit a wide range of file and folder information in the info
window.
*Create droplet applications that automatically apply changes to items
dropped on them, including the contents of folders.
*Find files and folders using an extensive set of search criteria.
Enhance file searches with plug-ins that extend file search capabilities.
Conveniently perform a wide variety of actions on found items. Make File
Buddy your default file finding application using the File Buddy CP
control panel.
*Modify the names of multiple files at once. For example, remove ".txt"
from the names of a group of files.
*Much, much more...

Changes & Fixes in this version:

*Apple wants their internet-based iDisks to act like local disks. As a
result, the system calls to resolve an alias to an iDisk do not see it
as an alias to a remote disk and try to connect to the internet. If File
Buddy encountered an alias to an iDisk while checking aliases, the
system would attempt to mount the iDisk, which requires a connection to
the internet. You could cancel the connection, but the system would take
so long to deal with it that it looks as if your Mac had crashed. Now,
if an alias to an iDisk in encountered, File Buddy gives you the option
of skipping it.
*Choosing Find Unique Files now brings the Unique Files Window to the
front if it's already open instead of opening a new one.
*If several items were opened in the info window, and the first was a
disk, the Kind description would always say "disk". Fixed.
*Labels in the info window were not being erased when displaying the
next item if the next item was different. Fixed.
*In the process of developing File Buddy 7, a few very minor bugs were
found while rewriting the existing code. This release contains fixes for
those bugs.

faster.
Author: Ton Brand
Company: Ton's Software
License: Shareware US$10
Computer: PowerPC, iMac or iBook
Mac OS: 7.5.3 or later
Abstract:
HTML-Optimizer is the ideal tool for managing your web site. It checks your
web pages for broken links and dangling tags and optimizes both text and
graphic files.
The program offers 5 functions plus a number of useful options that make
working with HTML-Optimizer very easy. Especially the new 'duplimize'
feature comes in handy for uploading an optimized web folder. The program

The five basic functions of HTML-Optimizer are:
1. Optimizing HTML code by removing unnecessary characters and tags, which
results in faster loading of your pages in your client's browser.
Client-side and server-side JavaScript can be optimized too. Graphic file
resources, which are of no use on the web, are removed, saving 10 to 80 % of
space.
2. Checking the so called tagged pairs, i.e. the tags that always have to
appear together with their end tags. Further, IMG tags are checked for
Width, Height and Alt attributes. Missing attributes are added with values
which are automatically detected.
3. Checking the validity of the internal hyperlinks, 8 levels deep.
4. Marking dangling tags and missing attributes to find and fix them
quickly.
5. Converting special characters to the &....; notation.
Version 5.5 removes more redundant editor tags.

This is a simple ResCompare patch that removes all banners from Sherlock
version 3.0.2 ("Sherlock 2"), included with OS 9.1. The patch will only
work with Sherlock 3.0.2. To remove banners from earlier versions,
download the other editions of Nobanners.

Most banner programs simply alter the search plugins in your system
folder; this one modifies three resources in the Sherlock application
itself, displaying only gray space instead of an obtrusive banner. If
you would rather make the modifications yourself, you can use Metrowerks
Constructor.

Use this program at your own risk. I am not responsible for the
consequences. This program is free and may be distributed on all media

The document called 'Spanish Lesson' contains a few interactive computer

Reader' program version 1.6 or higher which is available from Info-Mac
mirror sites.

The file demonstrates the use of the 'Language Toolkit Writer' authoring
program (which is also available from Info-Mac mirror sites). The lessons
are written for the native speakers of English but you can extremely easily
adapt this material for the native speakers of other languages (French,
Italian, German, Japanese etc.). You can also modify and extend this short
set of lessons. Use 'Language Toolkit Writer' to make all the changes you
need.

Subject: [*] Web Confidential 3.0b8J - Japanese Version


This is the Japanese version of the Web Confidential package.

This is the preview (beta) version Web Confidential 3.0 package.

Web Confidential runs natively on Mac OS X or on Mac OS 9 with
CarbonLib 1.1 or better.

Web Confidential is an intuitive, easy-to-use program for
managing user IDs, passwords, registration numbers, and the like.

While Web Confidential is suitable for a wide variety of personal data,
from credit card numbers to serial numbers, Alco Blom designed Web
Confidential particularly for the World Wide Web in mind. "Increasing
numbers of Web sites maintain some form of user registration," points
out Blom. "You may not realize it, but in the course of time you may
registered at a couple of dozen sites. Do you remember the passwords
you entered for all of them?"

Web Confidential allows Web surfers to store URLs, user IDs, and
passwords in one secure location. Web Confidential can automate the
process of logging into a password-secured Web page by automatically
passing URL, user ID, and password to your Web browser.

For opening pages containing personal account information at commercial
sites, Web Confidential allows you to automatically fill in WWW Forms
with user ID and password fields.

To ensure the personal information stored in Web Confidential remains
confidential, the program's password files can be encrypted using
state-of-the-art encryption technology.

No. Sorry. The closest you can come is to either export each table
as tab-delimited text or Excel spreadsheet or DBF or SYKL or some
other standard file format on a PC, from within Access, and then
bring those files to the Mac and import them (and you lose all
screens, reports, macros, and scripts) or else keep it running on a
PC somewhere and dip into it using ODBC find requests from within an
ODBC-aware Macintosh application such as FileMaker. (You can also
change the data in the Access database from a Mac using ODBC, but the
original database has to be up and running on a PC somewhere).

Subject: Beige G3 SVGA connection problem

A very familiar problem, and I have seen those symptoms before. Playing with
the Monitors control panel is not likely to solve the issue until you get
the correct setting on the adapter DIP switches. In simple terms, the
monitor cable (via the adapter) "tells" the computer what kind of monitor is
connected so that the computer can send the proper kind of video. It could
take a long time guessing with the switches to find the proper setting. If
you will tell us what model of adapter you are using, and what kind on
monitor, someone of the readers may be using the same kind and can tell you
the switch settings to use.

One thing that complicates trying to find the setting by trial is that each
time you change the settings, you have to restart. On startup is when the
computer checks the monitor sensing lines to identify the monitor type.

Start-up security software is notoriously easy to bypass. Try
restarting with extensions off (shift key down), then either use
Extension Manager to select Mac OS [x] All, or manually remove any
apparent security extensions, and restart. Et voil€!

Alternatively, try using shift-option-command-escape when the
password dialog appears; this should force-quit the password
application. But you still should remove the offending start-up
software (it might even be an application in the Startup Items
folder).

Hope this helps. Cheers,

Subject: high quality color printing: laser or solid ink?

I'm working in Macintosh environment, we currently print to Epson
3000 (inkjet, A3, ethernet, PS emulator). Our employee aren't
satisfied with the printing results.
Our business is architecture and industrial design: we realize high
quality rendering that prints poorly on Epson 3000 inkjet, so I'm
looking for alternatives.

Looking for a laser/solid ink printer with these features:
- A4/A3 size, color printing, maybe duplex
- ethernet
- real Postscript 3
- high resolution 1000+ dpi
- laser, solid ink tecnhnology (what else?)

After some searching found Xerox Tektronix has some interesting
printers, like the Phaser 860/790 series.

I'd like to share experiences and understand if the improvement in
image resolution and quality (photo quality) is really different from
Epson 3000's 1440 dpi on inkjet.

Which are the advantages/problems with both laser and solid ink technologies?

Thanks!

I would recommend Hotline, it's a client-server system, available from
www.bigredh.com that does what you want and a lot more (file transfer -
faster than most apple share transfers) and last time I checked, you didn't
have to register it (though they strongly encourage it)

Does anyone know how an iMac can handle an e-mail attachment
received, with a suffix .VEM ? It is supposedly a movie sent from a
PC.

Graphic Converter does not list this file type as recognisable.

Thanks

My wife and I did this with File Sharing. I'd create folders on her desktop named "Add Paper To Printer" or whatever.

You could use some sort of instant messaging app for this; maybe AIM or ICQ?

Hi:
I just installed 512mb of ram in my PPC G3 266 beige desktop. Before I did
this I would hit the power button it would boot up right away. Now it takes
about 20 or 30 seconds to begin bringing the monitor on and booting up.
Anyone have any hints on why this is happening? Is it bad for my computer?
Thanks!

Hi -

I just got a motorola i50sx phone. It has a usb port, and has phonebook and
datebook software.

Anyone know how I might move data from my mac to the phone?

Even better, since I also have a new laptop (new ibook), i'm thinking the
phone might be able to do enough to replace my palm. Any ideas about
synching the software on the phone with my palm desktop? (or with some other
contact software?)
