The Massinova Project
Broadcasting trance and electronica music to the world 24 hours a day, 7
days a week with live requests, a vast community network of listeners
and an unrivaled web site. The project started with the desire to push
the envelope of music interactivity by providing an automated request
system. A custom broadcast engine was developed to interface directly
with an SQL backend allowing unsurpassed web interactivity.

The result, as you can see, is very cool.

The Menu Extra
The Massinova Menu Extra is an extension of The Massinova Project
allowing listeners running Mac OS X to interface directly with the
broadcast database. It sits in the Mac OS X Menu Bar providing useful
information such as the current song playing and recently requested
songs. Additionally, it allows a listener to place requests for songs
in the request list, and directly connect to the broadcast.


English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Danish, Norwegian, Finnish, Brazilian-Portuguese,
Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese


Mac OS X 10.1
A broadband connection to the Internet (DSL, Cable, T1+)

How can I set the default browser in Eudora 4.3?

I set 'Internet Explorer' in the Internet control panel, but Eudora
still try to find an old version of Netscape.

Any help really appreciated.

Have you experimented with different settings in the Trackpad Control Panel?

What's wrong with putting an alias of your HD on the Apple Menu. This
gives you a hierarchical menu of the whole HD with no trouble!
