in each field "Red", "Green", "Blue", and "Block
Size". When you click "Draw", MAGE will fill every
"Block Size" square of the image with a color
determined by the equations in the other fields. The
color values should be between 0 and 1, where 0 =
black and 1 = white.

Supported Functions:
abs
acos
asin
atan
cos
cosh
deg
exp
fac
log

Subject: [*] Quit CSM 2.2


Quit CSM is a Control Strip module which lets you quit applications
without having to activate them: you can quit a single application,
the background applications and all running applications. It also
allows you to quit and restart the Finder and quit background-only
applications and displays memory information (application sizes and
largest unused memory block).

For more info visit http://www.mabasoft.com/quit.html.

* * *

System Requirements

Quit CSM needs a Mac with 68020 processor or better, System 7.5 or
higher and, for System 7.x.x, Appearance Extension.
Control Strip, Extensions Strip (2.0bx or higher), WorkStrip and
ACTION GoMac can be used as module host.

* * *

What's new in Quit CSM 2.2?

- The procedure which calculates the largest unused memory block has
been rewritten: the value displayed by Quit CSM is now always
accurate.

- Quit CSM can now also show the free RAM in the memory bar. The
Display Free Memory option can be selected in the Preferences pane of
the Quit CSM Settings control panel or, directly from the Control
Strip, using the Memory popup menu.

- In the presence of more module hosts Quit CSM is now capable of
correctly recognizing from which module host it is running, so that
it can behave accordingly (some Quit CSM options and abilities depend
on the module host's features).

- Quit CSM can now quit applications not supporting AppleEvents with
WorkStrip too.

- Some minor bugs have been fixed.

Subject: [*] Sleeper 3.5 - Enhanced energy saving utility for all Macs


Sleeper is a control panel that spins down the hard disk, dims the
screen, and powers off Energy Star compliant monitors on any
Macintosh. Users simply select desired sleep times in the control
panel and Sleeper takes care of the rest. Preferences can also be
set to have Sleeper password-protect, sleep, or shut down a Mac after
a period of inactivity, and a hotkey can be used to put the Macintosh
to sleep on demand.

Sleeper delivers a host of energy-saving features that work on nearly
every Macintosh, from the Mac Plus to the latest iMacs, PowerBooks,
and G4 PowerMacs. Sleeper provides more options, greater control,
and broader hardware compatibility than Apple's Energy Saver control
panel. This gives older Macs many of the energy saving features of
Apple's newer hardware, and provides newer Macintoshes with more
extensive, flexible, and reliable power management.

What's New
----------
Version 3.5 delivers a host of new features and fixes, including the
ability to save multiple setting configurations, improved reliability
on G4 PowerMacs, powering down of LCD screens, and options to control
processor cycling. Highlights include:

- Sleeper now saves multiple configuration settings and will
automatically switch between configurations when running a
PowerBook from battery or ac adapter. Configurations can also
be changed manually from the Control Strip.
- Controls have been added to allow entry of any desired delay
(1-999 minutes) for the screen saver, disk sleep, password
activation, monitor power-down, sleep, and shutdown.
- Sleeper now supports desktop LCD displays, such as the Apple
Studio and Apple Cinema displays.
- There are new options to control processor cycling.
- Sleeper now unmounts servers before going to sleep, avoiding
Mac OS 9's warning about "losing network services" if the
computer is put to sleep.

Sleeper will operate on any Macintosh running System 7 or higher,
including Mac OS 9.2.1, and is accelerated for PowerPC. It is
distributed as shareware, requiring a $25 registration fee for use
beyond a free 30 day trial period.--

It's just the 'nimda' worm trying (automatically) to break into Windows
NT machines running unpatched IIS. Don't mind it, there is nothing much
you can do about it. Search with google for 'nimda' and you should get
all the info you want, and more.

Subject: Better trackpad s/w anyone?

Hi All,

After receiving such great help from many people about FinderPop, I
thought I would try again with one of my last pet peeves about the
PowerBook G4's trackpad.

On my old WinBook (I've happily just returned to the MacOS after far
too long away), the one and only nice feature about that laptop was
the way its trackpad worked. You could, of course, tap with your
finger and, as long as you held your finger on the trackpad, it was
as if the "mouse button" was held down. Unlike on the Mac, however,
the minute you let up, the mouse button also was released. I find
the delay between when I let up and when the Mac releases the button
to be very annoying.

Of course, I know why they did this: when you tap and drag and you
get to the edge, that delay let's you pick up your finger and move it
back to the middle without "dropping" what you were dragging.
However, when you are tapping on the down arrow of a scroll bar,
instead of stopping to scroll, the thing just keeps scrolling until
the time out occurs (and on the G4, you can scroll a LONG way until
then) or you tap again (very annoying).

The WinBook, on the other hand, fixed the dragging problem quite
elegantly. When you get the the edge of the trackpad, if you keep
you finger there and don't let up, it just kept moving the mouse in
the same direction you were going when you hit the edge. This, IMHO,
is the correct solution.

So, long story, short question: anyone know of (or want to write?)
software that would do this?

As usual, MUCH TIA,
E. Blasberg
iDAQ Solutions Ltd.

P.S., I've just subscribed to Info-Mac but haven't yet received it,
so if you could please e-mail me directly I would be most grateful.

I don't understand why you don't keep the battery in there. The PRAM battery
is only designed to hold settings for a minute or so - i.e. enough time to
change a battery. There's no harm done to the batteries by leaving them in
the machine even when it's connected to a wall outlet for a long time.

Subject: Postscript Font Catalog Q


I am looking for suggestions on what program to use in order to catalog
all the postscript fonts in a folder or CD, without installing or
requiring them to be installed into the system. I also would like to
customize the sample text shown for each font and to print the catalog to
an Adobe Acrobat file instead of paper.

Any suggestions on what to use would be greatly appreciated. Please post
to the list or email me. Thanks.
