Subject: [*] astro20.hqx [All-in-one astronomy/astrology tool]

MacAstronomica generates sky maps at any time, from anywhere on Earth. The
maps show all the planets and stars visible to the naked eye, as well as
some galaxies and nebulas, the Ecliptic, meteor showers and the Milky Way.
Constellations are drawn in their traditional form, and a table lists the
visible objects. MacAstronomica also features an Orrery that simulates the
solar system, a sundial/moon dial, an astrological birth chart generator
complete with an overview, and a lot more. The interface is very elegant and
easy to use. And finally, MacAstronomica lets you print customized sky maps
and birth charts. Enjoy!

Subject: [*] English Adjectives 2.1 - foreign language learning

'English Adjectives 2.1' is a plug-in module for the 'Verbs & Nouns'
language-learning program. This module helps Macintosh users to study and
practise the comparison, adverb, and "-ish" forms of English adjectives. It
is useful to native English speakers and to students learning English as a
foreign language. It contains 5400 English adjectives. You can change or
delete existing entries, add new words, and construct groups of adjectives
that you want to practise. You can also add translations to the language
of your choice.

To use 'English Adjectives' you must have the application program 'Verbs &
Nouns'. You can download it from Info-Mac sites around the world (navigate
to 'Education' and 'Language'), for example:
or using the WWW page at
.

If you use the unregistered version of 'Verbs & Nouns', you can see only 59
English adjectives in the main scroll-lists. To see all the adjectives, you
must register your copy of 'Verbs & Nouns'. The module itself is free.

Subject: [*] Free Backup 2.1

Backs up any files and folders on any disks to any location(s) you choose,
in Finder format or Stuffit archives. Make any number of duplicates of Free
Backup - each will keep its own list of items to back up, where to back
them up to and which format to use. Automatically email or distribute
backups, back up multiple sources to multiple destinations at once,
maintain a set number of backups in a destination and delete older backups,
back up at an automatic interval. Unmatched flexibility and ease of use.

New in version 2: completely redesigned. Much more powerful. Supports any
number of backup sets, each of which can back up an unlimited number of
sources to any destination. Backs up in Finder format or makes archives
including optional encryption. Extensive data verification includes
checksums and optional byte-by-byte comparison of original and backup files.

New in version 2.1: adds extension to maintain a set number of archives,
deleting older ones. Fixes a bug writing to the log file with some OS
versions. Several minor enhancements.

Free.

PandoCalendar is a useful Mac-only program places a fully functional
calendar on your desktop. The look is completely customizable. You
can change the calendar font and its size, and the calendar's
background color; you can center the current week (so you are always
able to look back and ahead a full month at a time), display the
numerical number of the weeks of the year, display the calendar with
European style weeks (Monday being the first day and Sunday being the
last), assign notes to any day of the year by clicking on the day in
the calendar, and set alarms to remind you of time sensitive events.
You can also have PandoCalendar automatically plot the days you work.
Great for people who don't have a Monday-Friday work schedule!

Version 5.7.4 - Fixed a bug that would cause the calendar frame to
draw as garbage when the screen was set to millions of colors in Mac
OS X 10.1. Worked around a bug in Mac OS X that causes reminder
windows to be hidden if PandoCalendar was hidden at the time the
reminder was displayed.

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.

struggle to learn a new piece. This knowledge will greatly facility your
ability to read and learn music.

Yes, this does appear to be the solution and it makes historical
sense too since the problems began to appear just about the time I
switched to Times New Roman. I did as you suggested and reverted to
Times. The PS errors vanished - only now both my printers behaved as
if the printing area had been displaced upwards and partially off the
page. The bottom half of the text appeared on the top half of the
page right up to the top edge with the rest of the page blank -
something that had never happened before. Barely supressing an urge
to scream or take a hammer to my Mac and peripherals I reinstalled
the LW software and - lo! - I haven't had a PS error in several days
where I was previously having errors in virtually every printing. If
this holds true I am deeply in your debt.
Many thanks -
Fergus

Subject: General Controls

Since switching to OS 9.1, I can't get my computer to
save my preferences for the general controls. It
always seems to default to saving documents in the
application's folder, instead of the foldeer I would
like to specify. This problem occurs both at work,
where I have an all-in-one G-3, and at home where I
have a newer G-4. Any hints?
TIA,
Cheryl

Subject: Pop-up menu in Finder

Aside from that, an alias of a drive in the Apple Menu won't do you
much good if you're trying to drag a file to a desired destination
deep inside your drive's folder hierarchy. Neither will the
otherwise admirable FinderPop. But PopupFolder was perfect for that.
(You could also grab a file from deep within and pull it out onto the
desktop or move it to a totally different folder).

HP just announced the 950 all-in-one. I looked at it last weekend and
it has some nice features, foremost being that it can read directly from
Smart Media and the like.

One note of caution is that HP sometimes lags behind in it's supply of
drivers for Macs.
