Subject: [*] ABSTRACT for A_Z_CustomFolders

Hello Fellow Mac Enthusiasts,

And thank you for downloading A thru Z Custom Folders.

As simple as these folders appear they lend a lot of valuable things that
are not immediantely noticable like:

1.) Use them to dress up your Desktop, A- for aliases, D for documents T-
for trash, and so on. The trash icon takes something a ittle more complex to
use a folder rather than the can icon, see SPECIAL NOTE at the bottom of
this read me for how to accomplish it.

2.) Add different colors to folders to add accent and differenciate folders
that may have the same letter: ie Documents, Dates and Aliases and Accounts
and so on. Use the colors in the folders by HIGHLIGHTING the folder of your
choice, then select GET INFO (Cmd./i) and inside the GET INFO window select
LABLE and choose your COLOR.

3.) Folders with BIG easy to SEE letters actually save time. It is easier to
visuialize an 'A' before reading the word Aliases. Its a mind games thing.
You will overtime become to associate COLORS with ACTIONS. Most used with
RED and GREEN etc.

Should you ever LOSE the LAST copy of any folder for ANY reason, (like the
Zippo lighter commercial says) we will send you a complete set at NO CHARGE
! (To any registered user)

Thanks for your interest in our products.

Sincerely,

The following procedure is used to perform conversion:
1- only numbers having a two numbers decimal part are treated : x.xx.
2- commas for decimal part is replaced by a point : xx,xx => xx.xx
3- spaces are removed from numbers like x xxx xxx.xx
4- trailing plus or minus signs (xxxx.xx- or +) are placed before the
number (- or + xxxx.xx)
5- every unit in the range : F, FR, f, fr is replaced with FRF

9- formated and rounded output number is placed inside the document
following the choice made in the second dialog.
10- The converted file is saved at the same folder level with the same
name completed by the characters .cvÇ

preceding rules have not been contradicted by an exotic number format
not taken into account.

Folder Flattener Lite 1.2

Abstract:

Drop a folder on the desktop icon. Folder Flattener will compress and
encipher your folder and all files and subfolders within, creating a
backup file suitable for uploading to Internet storage servers.
Double-clicking the .flat file will restore the entire folder to the
location you select. Does not delete sources unless the Option key is
depressed (normally, a pretty cheerful key.) Small, stable, fast,
secure.

Requires PowerPC, Macintosh OS 7.5 up to 9.2.1. Works fine in the Mac
OS X 10.1.1 "Classic" environment.

MacLessonPlanner Pro! 1.0 is a program for creating and editing lesson
plans. It is a stand-alone program written for educators who yearn for
an easier method of planning daily, weekly, and yearly lesson plans.
The strength of MacLessonPlanner Pro! 1.0 is in handling unpleasant
cycle day situations. Days of school missed during the week are properly
passed over. The correct cycle days are kept in order. MacLessonPlanner
Pro! 1.0 alleviates the mundane task of transcribing subjects and times
of daily events from the current week's plans to next week's plans. The
process of completing lesson plans is especially arduous for those using
the cycle day system: snow days and holidays shift cycle days beyond
what drawing arrows can help.

Picture-in-Picture X 1.0.1
(c) Copyright 2001 Feelorium Limited, All Rights Reserved.
[email protected]
http://www.feelorium.com

Picture-in-Picture X is an QuickTime movie player. It plays movies on an
always on top window. It enables you to watch your favorite movies while
you work on other applications.

Picture-in-Picture X is very easy to use. You simply drag and drop movie
files or folders on to its window, and it plays the movies one by one
automatically.

You can also watch QTV channels easily. Picture-in-Picture X includes
information about many of QTV channels. Just press the 'QTV' button, and
choose your favorite channel.

Picture-in-Picture X knows you don't always need those control buttons and
menus. It automatically hides controls when you switch to other
applications.

Picture-in-Picture X resizes its window to keep the aspect ratio of the
playing movie correct. It knows where its window should be. It 'sticks'
the window to the screen corner where it was.

Supported Languages
- English
- Traditional Chinese

System Requirements
- Mac OS X 10.1

What's New
- You can use the new Dock Menu to control Picture-in-Picture X now.
- Picture-in-Picture X will no longer crash when you first launch it and
open a dynamic resizing movie.

Smart Scroll: Scrolling speed control, Proportional scrollbar tabs and
Live scrolling.

v3.7.3 December 21, 2001

Smart Scroll allows setting a comfortable Scrolling Speed in all
situations and for all Mac models. Users of fast G3 and G4 Macs may now

add-ons such as control panels.

Version 3.7.3 is a maintenance release adding support for Mac OS 9.2.2.

Smart Scroll runs on Mac OS 9.2.2 and previous versions (going back to
System 7.0). You may download and try Smart Scroll for 15 days, at no

"Version 3 is the best release of Web Confidential so far. It runs fully
native on Mac OS X and Mac OS 9. I never thought that I could port
Shared Menus to Mac OS X, but thanks to Apple's outstanding support
of the Component Manager on Mac OS X, it proofed possible. This means
that thanks to Shared Menus, you have access to your passwords via
a Shared Menu right in your browser's menu bar.", said Alco Blom.

These are the main features of Web Confidential for Mac:

Encryption : Industrial strength encryption (using BlowFish)
Automation : Automatic entry of WWW Forms and automatic HTTP Authentication
Integration : Access to your passwords in your browser and from the Dock
Synchronization : Synchronization with your Palm via a Conduit
Cross-platform : Binary compatible with Web Confidential for Windows

Subject: [Q] Why 3 minutes to get print dialog?

Hi:

I have a beige G3. It was running under OS 8.1. Some time ago, I
installed AdobePS and I noticed that every time I tried to print with the
AdobePS chooser extension, from any application, it took about a minute
before the print dialog box would appear. For part of this
time, the hard drive was being accessed. If I used a LaserWriter
extension, the print dialog box appeared immediately.

I've now upgraded to OS 9.1 and installed the latest version of AdobePS.
Amazingly, it now takes over three minutes before the print dialog box
appears and, again, part of the time the hard drive is accessed. On my
PowerBook with OS 9.1 and AdobePS, there is no delay.

I've rebuilt the Desktop File, checked things with Disk Warrior, turned off
File Sharing, etc, but to no avail. I'd be grateful for any insight.

Many thanks,
Howard Fried

Subject: strange problem - won't startup from CD


I have a Mac G4 Cube 450/DVD/384 meg running system 9.2.1 with a
non-partitioned hard drive that also contains OS 10.1. I am a long time
Mac user. My first Mac,
years ago, was the then new SE/30.
When I try to start up from Tech Tool Pro 3.0.1 CD or Norton Utilities
6.0 CD by holding
down the "c" key on start up, it ignores the CD and starts up from the
hard drive. I then tried the old control-option-shift-delete start up
and it just blinks the "can't find disk" icon and then if I let up the
keys it will eventually find the hard drive. My wild guess is that when
I put in 10.1 and upgraded to 9.2.1, it also added an extension that
allows the hard disk to start up from either system and that this is
somehow stopping it from looking in the other drives for a startup
system.
Any thoughts? Any suggestions where to or of whom to ask this question?
Merry Christmas, Stuart Schneider
