Subject: [*] Bookmarksman1.22(Stand-alone English version)

File name : Bookmarksman1.22(Stand-alone English version)
Freeware
Size : 1700k(Stuffed)

This is a stand-alone version of "Bookmarksman1.21". Though it is a
Filemaker Pro 5.xx database, you do not have to have Filemaker Pro5.xx to
run it.

Bookmarksman helps one keep track of web browser bookmarks that tend to
have the nasty habit of haphazardly accumulating into something unmanageably
humongous.

The new features include the following:

(1) "Note" field is introduced. (2) The number of listed bookmarks is
constantly displayed. (3) A single click searches several fields for the
keyword.

The main features are :

(1) Search results get displayed in list view
(2) Duplicate URLs are easily extracted and deleted
(3) Bookmarks can be sorted
(4) You can jot down notes in the "Note" field
(4) Totally customizable
(5) Drag/Drop-aware
(6) Utterly free of charge

Subject: [*] IPTC FILE CHANGER

This droplet will change an IPTC file info file created by FotoStation Pro
version 4 and later into a Photoshop file info file.

Both applications create file-info files using the same standard and data order.
The data forks, which you can view in a developer-oriented text editor like
BBEdit, are indistinguishable. However, owing to the fact that Photoshop (Mac)
has a blind spot with regard to any file info file not of type "8BFI" and of
creator code "8BIM", these files are invisible to it unless their attributes are
changed in the Finder or by some other application or utility. FileBuddy and
Snoop!, etc, are all very good for this purpose, but if you want to do it
quick-n-dirty and add your new spiffy customized IPTC info that you wrote over in
FS Pro to a file you have open in Photoshop, then this droplet fills that bill.

This droplet requires S„ndi's Addditions (included in the archive) to be placed
in the Scripting Additions folder of your startup disk before it is used.
Unfortunately, even in Mac OS 9.x, AppleScript on its own can't change file types
and creators without help from an OSAX. These are still read-only properties in
the Finder, and rather than burdening your system and your AppleScript with the
task of creating an all-new file and writing in the data from the old, then
trashing the new, I am distributing this droplet with S„ndi's so that changes may
be made to the same file as was created by you, the user, in FS Pro. Aren't I a
nice guy?

One caveat: this is a single-file only version, i.e., it will only convert one
file at a time. You are welcome to customize and wrestle with the code to get it
to work on multiple files, multiple files in closed folders, multiple files on
network disks or Zips or Floppies or what have you; I have just given you all a
foundation script to work with. Good ideas often become better ideas in the hands
of others, is my philosophy.

Standard freeware disclaimers applicable to your jurisdiction/lifestyle apply
here as well.

Okay, so now it's time for you to get converting. So get to it!

Subject: [*] SkinShrinker 1.0.1 update


SkinShrinker v1.0.1

SkinShrinker is a utility for renaming character skin files for "The
Sims" series of games. The majority of user-created meshes available from
web sites have filenames that are too long to work with the Mac version
of the game. SkinShrinker is a free drag-and-drop application that edits
CMX and SKN files to make them Mac-compatible.

New in this version:
* added compatibilty with SKNs that contain more than one underscore in
their name
* part of SKN's name after last hyphen is now always uppercase regardless
of previous state

Requirements: PowerPC, OS 8.6 or higher (including OS X), CarbonLib 1.1
or higher

SkinShrinker is copyright 2002, Cherie Benoit.

Subject: Color Picker Loses Color

I have OS 9.04 installed on my beige G3/300. For the last several
months, Color Picker does not offer the two comparison swatches --
the "old" color and the "new" color.

I have reinstalled Color Picker from the tome several times, and did
a clean install. All to no curative effect.

Any ideas how to get the color swatches back?

Is there a sw hack to override the Titanium's on/off switch so that I

heard of one, but I haven't been able to find it.
