Subject: [*] DupFinder 1.0.2J - Japanese Version


This is the Japanese version of the DupFinder package.

DupFinder can quickly and easily remove duplicate files from your hard
disk by replacing the duplicates with an alias of a "master" file.
Eliminates disk clutter as well as saving disk space.

New in DupFinder 1.2:

*Expert mode for manually entering creator and/or file type. Can now
search all applications or all text files without limiting to a specific
creator type.

DupFinder requires OS X, or OS 8 or 9 and CarbonLib. CarbonLib is free
and can be obtained from your "Software Update" control panel.

This is the Japanese version of the FloatingNotes package.

What's the point of having notes if they're buried by other application
windows and you can't see them? Sure, Stickies is free, but
FloatingNotes "floats" on top of all other application windows so you
can always see them. FloatingNotes uses no system extension, and best of
all, FloatingNotes is a Carbon application so it works under OS X as
well!

FloatingNotes automatically saves all open notes when you quit. To
delete a note, simply close the window.

FloatingNotes requires OS X, or OS 8 or 9 and CarbonLib 1.3 or later.
CarbonLib is free and can be obtained from your "Software Update"
control panel.

Subject: [*] Massinova.menu 1.0.1


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.

Languages:

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

Requirements:

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

Version 1.0.1
*Fixed a common Menu Extra server crash that happened if you unload the
extra at certain key moments during an update.
*Removed an accidental double download when selecting "Refresh
Menu".
*Better identifies any of your requests or changes in your favorites
when using only the website.
*Cleaned up internal communication and notification methods for ease of
upgrades and future Massinova products.
*Artist info links now correctly handle and encode special characters.

Subject: [*] SnipIt for Macintosh


SnipIt is a utility to extract songs or clips from a long audio recording
(or movie). Its main use is to split long recordings from a vinyl record,
tape or FM station into individual song files. It can use any movie or audio
file readable by quicktime and exports the output as a movie file (readable
by iTunes and many other utilities). Clips are generated by specifying a
clip-start and a clip-end time and then saving the movie in between.
Shareware $10. Unregistered versions have a "please register" reminder, but
are otherwise fully functional.

Mac OS X 10.1's improvements make a world of difference in
usability, and this week we look at a slew of changes that give
Mac OS X 10.1 a far more rich and polished feel than previous
versions. Also this week, we roll out new Web and mailing list
services in honor of our 600th issue. In the news, Microsoft

Subject: [*] Web Confidential 3.0b9J - 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.

++++ previous message ++++++
I need to set-up a MAC partition on a NT machine. This MAC partition
will only contain data. The machine does not have to run any MAC OS. It
is currently being used as a proxy/mail server.
+++++++++++++++

You need to get your administrator to enable Services for Macintosh
(SFM). It only works on an NTFS file structure but it allows you to
mount the NT partition on your Mac desktop and read/write to it as
any partition. There is also a software package from Thursby called
DAVE, but I haven't used it.

Subject: [A]: Second Hard Drive in G3

My experience with an early version of the B&W G3, IDE drive (Maxtor) and a
second IDE drive follows:

The tip off of to which revision B&W motherboard you have comes when you
open the case and look at the IDE ribbon cable. If there is NO connector for
a second drive, then purchasing a dual cable and installing it onto the IDE
plug on the mother board alone will NOT work. Sure, you may see the drive
but this is a funky and limited IDE bus that ONLY supports one device
properly and INDEED you may wind up with data corruption or at least a lot
or lockups or crashes when the data on the bus collides with itself, etc.

If, however, your machine comes with a cable that has 2 connectors (one will
not be used) then you PROBABLY (I have no personal experience but it makes
sense) can add a second slave configured IDE hard disk to this bus.

I purchased and installed a Tempo Ultra-66 PCI IDE card because my B&W has
the earlier version motherboard and it works just fine! Be aware that there
is no point in formatting or putting data on your new disk drive until AFTER
the installation of the card as you must initialize the drive AFTER
installing it on the new IDE bus to use it. I installed an IBM 75 GB drive
and it has been fine. BTW, the tempo card comes with 2 IDE buses supporting
a total of 4 devices, a master and a slave on each bus in addition to the
IDE bus on the motherboard itself. I believe that someone is now making an
Ultra-100 card. My IBM drive is ultra-100 but these drives automatically
work with Ultra-66 bus specifications if an Ultra-66 vs. Ultra-100 bus is
found. I had NO problems with this.

Lastly, a question. Does anyone know if the Tempo Ultra-66 PCI IDE card is
supported under Mac OS 10? (10.1?)

Good luck,
SH

Well, I cannot agree with this.

I had bought a LaserJet 3200M, because I wanted a fax and a laser
printer in one device.
The hardware is really superb, it works like a charm.

But the software is a plain disaster, a total mess.

- The installer did delete some of my fonts and replaced them with
different ones of the same name. This very effectively destroyed a
lot of layouts in my database, as the new fonts had differences in
size. According to German law, the deletion of use files is criminal!

- The Fax driver, which is the very same of as used by the Officejet
G85 was not working at all at the beginning. After some serious
hacking with a debugger, I found that this extension REQUIRES
ColorSync. Without it, is refuses to work, and it will of course NOT
give you an appropriate error message. That would have been far to
easy.

- The "HP-All-In-One Communication" extension is the most buggy piece
of software I have ever seen. Often it claims that the door of my
printer would be open, but of course it isn't. Often it will just
lock up my computer, effectively destroying my recent work. Also,
sometimes it will just not print at all, but just generating a
strange error message in the printer, and again locking my Mac.

- The CDROM does not contain a manual, only a huge amount of
cluttered HTML files, that don't contain anything useful, and that is
not even useable with Internet Exploder. There is a PDF file, but I
had to download it from the web site.

HP support for this beast is not existing, several requests have
never been answered, and the folks at the telephone hotline are
surprised that this machine even works with a Mac.

What a waste of money. I never buy another HP product. I mean, there
are always problems, but completely ignoring them does not help.

Sigh.

Yours,

Subject: Custom made restore disk?

Hi all,

I'm taking care of 23 Macs (mostly Wallstreet Powerbooks, some Bronze
Powerbooks, all running Sys 8.6) that we give to our students while they
work on their projects. It probably goes without saying that the computers
return in different states of "chaos" - games installed, programs deleted,
etc - and it's up to me to reformat and install everything.

Now I used to make myself a custom disk with all the apps we use and after
doing a clean software restore from the MacOS 8.6 system disk install all
the programs again - which takes about 2.5 hours per machine ... and is
boring as hell. Now I'm thinking there must be a better way ...

I tried tinkering with the System restore disk, e.g. create an image of the
restore CD, delete the things I don't need, make a new "Macintosh HD" file
to restore from, install all the apps onto it, compress it into a DiskCopy
image, put it on the copy of the restore CD and burn it onto CD. However
when I start the "Apple Software Restore" program I get the message that
"The image [Macintosh HD] has a missing or outdated checksum resource".

How do I get a restore CD that contains all our apps? Help - the computers
have to be restored by next Monday, and I really don't want to set up
another 23 machines!

Thanks.

Markus

I have a beige G3/300 desktop with built-in ethernet. I'm getting ready to

I created a 10baseT crossover cable and connected the Mac to my work

Windows interface came on, indicating that it saw the connection (also
worked when I swapped ends with the cable, to check both paths of the
cable). But I was unable to complete a ping from either machine. The
laptop was set up with ip of 192.168.30.18, subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.
The mac was 192.168.30.17.

thanks for any suggestions

Subject: MAC partition on a NT PC????

There is no free/shareware solution that I know of. If you have NT server
or Winders 2000 server you can load Services for Macintosh (SfM) and set up
a volume/directory to be accessed by Mac clients and PC clients. You cannot
set this up on NT workstation by itself. I am running a network at home
with W2K Advanced Server providing file and print services to my Macs and
PeeCee's. the only thing to worry about is copying files by a PC from a
share set up to work with Macs to one that is not and back again. This
sometimes causes the file to get munged but it depends on what the file it.

You may look into a product called Dave. I know it will allow a Windows box
to be a client of an Appleshare server but I don't know if it will let an NT
workstation share files to Mac clients.

MAC partition on a NT PC????

Please help.

I need to set-up a MAC partition on a NT machine. This MAC partition will
only contain data. The machine does not have to run any MAC OS. It is
currently being used as a proxy/mail server.

The machine specs are:
Gigabyte GA-7VXMM motherboard, AMD Duron 800 MHz, 256 Meg Dimm Ram, 20 Gig
Hd, Win NT 4 Workstation, SP 5, Realtek chipset 10/100 PCI network card.

The machine must still boot NT and run the Proxy, but the MAC partition must
be accessible via the network. The proxy is installed on a 4 Gig NTFS
partition. The other 16 Gig of the hard drive is not being used.

Please help.

I know NT fairly well, but I know absolutely NOTHING about MAC.

Please help.

Thank you.

NTFS the native file system for NT/2000 has native support for Macintosh
files, although it will not support file/foldername characters that are fine
on a Mac, so stick to letters and numbers, hyphens and underscores. To allow
a Mac to see a Windows share requires either NT Server's Services for
Macintosh or 3rd party software such as DAVE or PC-MACLAN.


Installing and Setting up Windows NT Services for Macintosh

should tell you all you need, specifically:
for peer-to-peer networking.

Dave or MacSOHO from will run on the Mac's to allow
them to show up in the Network Neighbourhood on the Win9x/NT/2K boxes, or PC
MACLAN from will allow the PC
to share using AppleTalk.

You can use the File Manager in the Administrative Tools to
create a MacVolume. Simple create one in NT then go to the
File Manager and make it a mac volume. Be careful to check
the permissions on the NT side again after you do this as
creating a Macvolume opens it up for all to use.

I have done this with every user's folder at the school I
work at.
