Subject: [*] 1.2 UPDATE of Email Magician.sit (abstract and file)

This is a Stuffit archive of Email Magician 1.2 for Eudora« (Mac),
the one-button solution to managing your email. The software (from
YAV http://www.yav.com) automatically creates filters, mailboxes, and
nicknames (address book entries) with one click. You can generate
hundreds of filters in the time it takes to construct one manually.
Email Magician creates mailboxes to go with your new filters, and can
also add new nicknames to your address book corresponding to your new
mailboxes.

The new version 1.2 adds a Special Filters palette with many
innovative options requested by users. These include powerful filters
for HTML email, PC file attachments, and filters that can act upon
entire address books. Other new features include a mailbox Table of
Contents display, support for two-byte fonts, and many new settings,
actions, and revert options.

Version 1.2 adds much functionality to unregistered copies of the
program. Where, previous versions of Email Magician limited
unregistered users to writing a single automatically generated
filter, mailbox, and nickname per day, the new version lifts most
restrictions and allows unregistered users the option to write one
filter of each type per day. Email Magician generates 13 types of
filters based upon its analysis of your Eudora folder.

This "Swiss Army Knife" for Eudora« includes powerful spam filtering
and comes with almost two hundred spam filters. Email Magician lets
you organize and edit your filters, mailboxes, and nicknames too. The
program also offers one-click archiving of mailboxes, as well as
automated archiving of messages within mailboxes exceeding a
specified message limit, or of entire mailboxes that haven't been
modified within a certain time-period.

Email Magician automates many periodic email "house-cleaning" chores
-- deletion of empty mailboxes and "orphan-filters," meaning filters
targeting missing mailboxes, creation of filters and/or mailboxes for
all nicknames in your address books, and much more. Please check
http://www.yav.com/emailmagician.html to make sure you have the
latest version.

Subject: [*] [Disk Watcher 1.0.7] Automatically check disks for corruption

"Disk Watcher" fully automates Disk First Aid to check your disks for
corruption. Results are logged. What action to (automatically) take
when a disk problem is found is 100% customizable!

The idea is "damage prevention" - disk errors can go unnoticed,
resulting in even more errors until finally things go really wrong.
Checking your disks on a regular basis is just good "disk-keeping".
Disk Watcher automates that for you.

Use:
The Disk Watcher installer will put everything in place. It gives you
the option to have Disk Watcher launched on every startup, or just once
per day at startup. Alternatively you can have a cron launch it at
whatever interval you deem appropriate.

- Disk Watcher allows you to exempt disks from being checked based on
the kind of disk (locked, ejectable) and/or based on the disk's name.
- Disk Watcher allows you to have your own custom actions take place
(which can even overrule Disk Watcher's default action) when a disk
problem is found. Such an action might be to automatically launch
another disk repair utility, but may also be to launch your own home
grown scripts... Powerful stuff!

System Requirements:
- Works under Mac OS 7.5 through 9.2.1
- Disk First Aid 8.2 or higher
- AppleScript needs to be enabled

New:
- In some situations, the unregistered version of Disk Watcher would
not bring itself to the front when putting up the registration
reminder. This made it impossible to run Disk Watcher unattended. Fixed.
- If Disk Watcher is already installed, the installer will only replace
it if the installed copy is an older version.

Pricing and payment:
Disk Watcher is $10,- non-crippled shareware with a free 30-day trial period.
Payment is handled by Kagi.

Subject: [*] I Ching Connexion X 3.0 (Carbon); The Book of Changes with a new view

I Ching Connexion X 3.0

The I Ching Connexion is an ever-changing but always consistently interlocking
graphic representation of the way the 64 hexagrams interrelate.
As such it is the key to widen and deepen the interpretation of the
outcome of
a divination.

It features the translation James Legge made (published in 1882, England) of
the Imperial Edition of the I (published in 1715, China). This alone
makes the
program useful for anyone interested in the I Ching.
Besides that it adds two radical new views to the ancient Book of Changes:
the Connexion and the Mediator.
It also features an I Ching clock, a presentation of the link between the
I Ching and astrology. And it allows you to calculate your natal hexagram.

I Ching Connexion X v3.0 is carbonized: it requires a PowerPC Macintosh, at
least Mac OS 8.6 with CarbonLib v1.4 installed, or Mac OS X 10.1 - it runs
natively in both the Classic and the OS X environment.
The program takes about 2.1 MB on your hard disk and needs 2.2 MB free RAM
to run.
It does not run on 680x0 Macs.

This software is distributed as shareware (save/print disabled).
Please read 'I Ching Connexion X Read Me' for a bit more introductory info,
and 'How to Register ICC' for instructions on how to register.

Changes since v2.3.3:
- Build for Carbon now!
- Made standard zoom state just big enough to hold the graphic.
- Remember/restore position and size for all windows between runs.
- Added standard window menu.
- Balloon help is gone (it's not available in Carbon).
- Added 'Hexagram Tips' as a replacement for balloon help;
activated by menu choice or while option key is held down.
- Added scroll wheel support (in OS X).
- Corrected minor error in Hexagram 1, 2 and 3 miscellaneous signs
numbers; they don't show up in the section menu anymore.

Enjoy the program,

over 100 Mac web pages, and contains some instructions on how to use anonymous
ftp and find files as well a format chart showing which programs decompress
and decode which files. Also there is a section on how to use certain files.

This Stuffit Deluxe 6.0 archive contains both the text and html versions of
the Mac-Site-list.

To ensure that the columns in the Format Chart section line up correctly the
document's text must be in a monospaced typeface such as Courier, Monaco,

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 5.7.5 - Worked around a bug in Mac OS 9 that would cause
importing and exporting to fail. Fixed a bug that would cause
importing of recurring notes from versions 5.0-5.0.3 to fail. Fixed a
bug that could cause search result windows to display very thin and
not be able to resize wider. Worked around a bug in Mac OS 10.1 that
would cause sheets attached to the calendar window to display in the
wrong place. Fixed a bug where all note balloons, except those that
appeared to the lower right of a date box, wouldn't point to the
proper date. PandoCalendar will now directly overwrite the
preferences file when a temporary preferences file can't be created.
Fixed the formatting in the About window on OS 9 with Chicago as the
system font. When opening the Preferences window fails, because the
Frames folder can't be found, there is now a more descriptive error
message.

This is from the osax dictionary:

list applications: returns list of all running applications
list applications
Result: list -- the list of applications

The GTQ Scripting Library 1.2.1 should be on info-mac in /info-mac/dev/osa/

WAC, a utility from the iCab people will do it, excerpted from the read me:

WAC - Web Archive Converter

Author: Alexander Clauss
Email:
WWW:
Status: Freeware
System requirements:
* 68K or PPC
* Mac OS 7.5 or later

The program "WAC" converts the IE web archiv into a ZIP archive. The ZIP
archive can be unpacked with StuffIt or ZipIt on the Mac, but it can also
unpacked on DOS/Windows using PKZip or Unix using UnZip and any other
computer platform. The ZIP archive can be directly loaded by iCab because
iCab (since Preview 1.7) uses the ZIP archive format as its own web archive
format.

To start converting a web archive you should drag the archive file on the
WAC program icon.
You can drag any number of IE web archives to the WAY program at once.

I can't do it. Not RealAudio, not QuickTime, not Windows Media Player.

Not in OS X or OS 9.2. Not on the 500, not on the 700.

Not in Netscape, not in IE.

(I'm feeling very Seuss-ian all of a sudden..."not with a mouse, not in
a house"...)

I went to the Apple Store in my neighborhood and gave them the
scenario. They all scratched their heads and suggested calling Apple
Care.

I'm also having problems with Flash and Shockwave.

And Java applets (chat rooms at Yahoo). Mind you...in this scenario, I
CAN access the chat rooms when I start up with the 9.2 disk.



Please copy any responses to me at [email protected]

Thanks!

Pamela
