Subject: [*] Hyped 2.0.1

Hyped is a HyperCard operating system, designed as the Finder for The Slate,
a fictitious PDA computer that runs entirely on HyperCard.

Hyped is written entirely in HyperTalk for the highest compatibility with
any implementation of HyperCard, except for a small part of it, called a
Lightbox, which makes all the calls for managing files, folders, and disks.
This way, no matter what form of HyperCard you are using, it will still
work, since the Lightbox makes all the calls and is easy to replace with
another. Hyped includes several Lightboxes; one uses AppleScript and makes
calls to the Finder, one makes calls to CreySoft 2000's Icebox Kernel, one
uses Rinaldi XCMDs, one uses Core Collection XCMDs, and the last one is a
Rinaldi/AppleScript hybrid. Lightboxes can also be written in other OSA
languages or XCMDs.

Hyped is now at version 2.0.1. It is faster with its Rinaldi/AppleScript
hybrid Lightbox and more convenient with redesigned icons, multiple Hyped
windows, icon-only view, and a QuickMenu. HyperWrite and the GUI Builder are
now ready to be run (although still no HyperPaint as of yet). Version 2.0.1
includes various bug fixes and cosmetic changes.
Future plans include Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse, etc. control panels,
contextual menus, other Hyper* applications... hold on there!

Subject: [*] Sputnix 0.2B; a Mac OS X music sharing client for audiogalaxy.com


Sputnix v0.2B 2001.12.07

freeware - not affiliated with Audiogalaxy in any way, shape, or form

www.biggerplanet.com
[email protected]

Features
- 100% Cocoa -- support for long file names, and all that good stuff
- resumable downloads
- multiple simultaneous downloads

What's New
since v0.1B
- fixed bug where Sputnix wouldn't process conjoined messages - this
caused the problem where login would stop at the "waiting to receive
request for shares" state
- added maintenance and reporting of shares - this allows multiple
simultaneous downloads
- as part of reporting of shares, added MP3 tag scanning and length
calculation
- in-progress downloads are now placed in "Sputnix Cache" folder in
Library folder, and moved into final destination folder when complete
- fixed bug where login button could be improperly disabled
-×now honors server's delete requests
- automatically scrolls to bottom of list; scroll bar now properly
updated

Not Implemented
- does not create accounts; go to www.audiogalaxy.com to create an
account
- does not allow for multiple share folders to be selected

Problems
- while reporting of shares seems fine, not certain about actual
uploading process - may not work; serving as the host of a transfer does
not work; if you're familiar with OmniNetworking and want to answer some
questions, drop me a line
- does not immediately report newly downloaded songs as available for
sharing; must quit and relaunch to report new shares

Subject: Modems for the mac

The cost of serial port modems for a Mac(new or 2nd hand) are way too
expensive and in my case cost more than what I paid for the machine, a PPC
7300. As an act of desparation I came across a mac serial cable which had a
standard 25 pin fitting at the other end. All the current windows modems
are 9 pin fitting but you usually get with them a joint cable which has the
25 pin attached also. So I attach my serial cable to my mac and the win
modem cable to the other end. After some messing about with ppp (best to
use free ppp), guess what it worked (I can connect at 45k). The modem I
used was a spare Diamond multimedia external for my winpc, no need to spend
nearly ú100 (ú50 - 2nd hand), just get yourself a good well known (here and
in US) windows external serial port modem, such as US Robotics or Diamond as
I have stated. It's probably best to get a K56 flex compatible as it'll
probably be supported for the mac. The diamond does support the mac and has
scripts on it's web site but I didn't need to load any drivers for it at
all.

However, I must add that I loaded something called gearbox, which has a list
of the modems and advised me to use K56 Flex.

If you dont use Gearbox (came with my NTL free isp disc), then make sure
your port speed is set to max speed 115700 or above.

I hope this has been of help.

Cheers

about a petition to have MATLAB ported to OS X. Then, if you agree to
it, please sign the petition and help get back to the Mac a

1. In Settings->Attachments, turn on "Trash attachments with
messages". Attachments (like the digest) which you have not moved out
of your attachments folder by hand will be moved to the Finder trash
when you delete the message.

2. Empty trash. That will remove the alias from the mailbox list.
