Software for tracking expenses or float expenditure, great for tracking
expenses, even better if you need to return your expenses or float as the
documents can be printed out for use as your expense or float envelope
header or just to keep on file, keep all the information on one document or
use a separate document for each category or department, with options for
using with or without a float and or credit card payments. There are pre
entered settings for Dollars, Sterling, Euros and the option for a custom
currency that the user can set up from the preferences window, this custom
option is already preset for Canadian Dollars but can be altered to any
currency of the users preference.

Funny Bits From Your Talking Chips...Because your Mac really wants to
laugh and tell you jokes.

Add a laugh-track to your day with a colorful "circuit board" whose
animated "chips" tell jokes (using funny Mac voices) and laugh on cue. You
can hear random jokes, choose your favorite kinds, even use jokes or
laughter for an alarm clock or "sanity-saver"!
Take your pick from 7 joke categories (e.g. knock-knocks and puns), 7
laugh categories (e.g. happy or demented), 12 voices (e.g. Bubbles or
Victoria).
Lots of great computer and other nerdy jokes, but also jokes for kids
in their own category. This free demo has 30 jokes. (You can also buy the
full version with a 762-joke database.)

* Set up desktop icons with your own preferences--double-clicking any icon
will play one joke and/or laugh from your chosen categories, then exit the
program.
* Save your sanity with jokes and laughter on tap.
* Star in your own standup comedy routine, with a laugh-only icon as your
delighted audience.
* Lure co-workers to see your computer "doing something funny"--then try to
get them to go back to their own boring desks.

How It Works


The Music Scale Teacher is an invaluable computerized music tutor. It uses
advanced teaching techniques to accelerate your note reading abilities. It
replaces the monotony of memorizing the scales with a thrilling more action
packed arcade game. The more notes you shoot down, the more scales you've
mastered. Master those difficult keys instead of being intimated by them!

This program compliments Musical Space Invaders. After having achieved a
fundamental knowledge of note reading, either with the help of Musical Space
Invaders or this program, Scale Teacher will advance you to the next level.
It will help you to intuitively know the notes for each key signature.
Students will be freed from having to constantly consult the key sign as they
struggle to learn a new piece. This knowledge will greatly facility your
ability to read and learn music.

Hold down the Option key while double-clicking on a link. Eudora will
present you with a dialog box to choose your default browser.

>How can I set the default browser in Eudora 4.3?

1.
In "Miscellaneous" settings, turn on "Read from Internet Control Panel"

2.
Hold down the option key when you click on a URL. When it asks you
which application to use, choose the browser you want.
It works also with comman+option.

3.
It works also for others protocols (ftp or news).

4.
Good url to check for Eudora problems.

Either:

1. In "Miscellaneous" settings, turn on "Read from Internet Control Panel"

or

2. Hold down the option key when you click on a URL. When it asks you
which application to use, choose IE.

Spoke to our ISP today and he told me that some virus is around which
tries to do bad things to NT-based servers.

It first tries to enable the "guest" account, then gives that guest
account administrator privileges and then the back door is wide open.

But I think none of the Mac-based applications implement anything
near to an NT server, so you'll be fine.

Best wishes, Christian.

Best guess is to look on older magazine CDs for Eudora (I have a
"collection" of those which came with the German "MacMagazin" before
it was taken over by MacUp Verlag). However, I cannot look before the
week-end.

But does it need to be Eudora? I had the same "problem" with a
Powerbook 150 on which I needed to install a mail application. I did
a "search" (on versiontracker, I think), and found Musashi being
cheap and quite usable. Allows you to use more than one mail address
(like Eudora Pro), and doesn't cost a fortune. Works great on that
old Powerbook. So unless you have specific reasons why only Eudora
should be used there, I recommend Musashi.

Best wishes, Christian.

Subject: HUGE Mac OS 10.0.4 icons

I'm sure there are many of you who sometimes let their kids play
with the PowerBook that you bring home from the office, and are
familiar with some of the weird preferences that you can be faced
with when you get it back. Under 9.2.1 I was always capable of
setting things right again, but now I am stumped... It seems that my
son played some games in the classic mode that changed the monitor
resolution, and a weird thing happened, the resolution changed back
to 1024 x 768 but all of the icons on the OS X desktop remain *huge*,
so big that you can only fit about 10 icons in the whole desktop. I
have tried Monitor settings, Global icon size settings (under the
"Views" preferences) and everything else I could think of. Restarts
(from 9.2.1 or 10.0.4) do not correct the problem, and any new
folders are created with huge icons. Can one "rebuild the desktop"
in 10.0.4, or is there a "preference file" that can be discarded? Do
you think this situation will correct itself when I load 10.1? Any
thoughts/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I think this would be limited to 4 levels. PopUp Folder went to something
