TidBITS#623/01-Apr-02

The top news this week is the proposed settlement in the Microsoft
antitrust case - will it meet your needs? Adam also looks at a new
service from Internet payment service Kagi that's aimed at helping
fans support their favorite artists. John Moltz joins us with some
opinions on iPod-enabled piracy, Tonya previews a new utility from
Microsoft, and we examine Apple's new support options. In the
news, we pass on video evidence of Apple's next iDevice (think
TiVo), and tell you of a new email filtering service from the
SpamCop folks.

When was the last time you backed up your Mac OS X machine? The
solution for many people is Retrospect 5.0 - Adam looks in depth
at the new release in this week's issue. Also, Matt Neuburg starts
a two-part examination of Unicode and what it means to you. In the
news, KeyStrokes for Mac OS X provides helpful adaptive technology
for disabled Mac users wanting to use the new operating system.

Subject: [*] BOOM 1.3b3

BOOM 1.3b3 (beta release 3)

What is BOOM?
BOOM is an arcade game in the grand tradition, bringing the
playability and feel of the glorious 8-bit consoles on the
Macintosh. It can be described as "Bomberman meets Doom".
Actually, I took the basic Bomberman idea and dropped it in a
"Super-Deformed Doom" scenario (whatever this means).
As a space marine your mission is to penetrate 8 alien infested
areas, each one divided in 10 sub-zones, eliminate all enemies
using your bombs and finally kick the Big Alien Boss back to
where he came from.

System Requirements:
PowerPC processor;
9 MBytes free memory;
Mac OS 8.6 through X
CarbonLib 1.1 or later

Recommended Configuration
Mac OS 9 or X;
InputSprocket 1.1 or later (not supported under Mac OS X);
QuickTimeü 4 or later with 'QuickTime Authoring' component installed.

What's new in BOOM 1.3b3?
* Fixed a bug that caused the player sprite(s) to skip the death
sequence when aborting a game just after completing a level.
* Fixed a bug that caused the shield effect not being shown
around players in certain situations.
* Fixed a bug that caused wrong animation frames to be displayed
for the destructible block sprite after loading a previously saved
game.
* Fixed a bug that caused the Alien Boss egg to occasionally
release two enemies instead of one.
* Recompiled with MacZoop 2.5.2r1.
* Added complete sets of 32-bit icons, including 128x128
thumbnail icons, for application, data files, saved games files and
preferences file. These new icons are displayed in the Mac OS X
Finder only.

Distribution
BOOM is 15$ shareware.
You can distribute BOOM freely, provided that you leave the software and
the accompanying documentation unchanged. You can include BOOM in CD-ROMs
and other software collections only by previous agreement.

Thanks and best regards.
Federico

Subject: [*] CD Finder 3.6 for Mac OS 8.5 - Mac OS X

CDFinder is a very fast and powerful tool to catalog your hard
disks, CD-ROMs, DVDs, floppies, ZIPs and anything else that spins.
It has a great user interface and very useful search functions.
CDFinder supports drag&drop and requires a PowerPC CPU.
While System 8.5 is required, CDFinder is also fully compatible to
MacOS 9.1 and Mac OS X.
A special feature is the multi-lingual user interface
(German/French/English/Italian/Swedish/Chinese).

Together with CDWinder 1.6 for Windows,
this is a special cross platform, network solution to catalog disks
and CD-ROMs on a Macintosh and a PC.

The new version can be obtained from the CDFinder home page
.

A single user license of CDFinder is $25, multi user licenses are available.

New in CDFinder 3.6:

- Improved export function (more than one catalog to be exported at
once, great customization).

- Better display options: A new column displays the "Kind" of all
items, and Carbon Help Tags are used to reveal more detail in some
places.

- Number of labels increased from 7 to 15.

- Improved Audio-CD cataloging: Now recognizes Enhanced-CDs (with
additional data tracks), and writes to local "AppleCD Remote"
database.

- New Version Check feature checks for new version of CDFinder at the
CDFinder Homepage.

- Smaller fixes and improvements, as usual.

This version requires Mac OS 8.6 and CarbonLib 1.1 or newer.

Subject: [*] VeggieMail


Why VeggieMail?
I wrote VeggieMail to serve a need I had. I get a gazillion e-mails
every day. I hate nothing more than being forced to sit as my computer
downloads attachments from some #[email protected]%!!*%[email protected] spammer. Even with my DSL
connection, I have to wait as these completely unsolicited e-mails flood
into my inbox. I could set up a rule in my main e-mail client (Microsoft
Entourage X), but then I have to wait for its bloated self to load, and as
you might be able to tell by now, I'm impatient. Time spent waiting could be
time I'm earning money.
Therefore, I wanted an e-mail client that could:
* view my e-mails without downloading them
* delete the spam without opening it
* send a quick e-mail if I'm in a hurry so I don't have to load
Entourage
* reply quickly to e-mails
VeggieMail was born. I'm largely happy with Entourage, so I didn't want
to reinvent the wheel -- VeggieMail is NOT a replacement for a full-featured
e-mail program. Instead, it's supposed to be a quick and dirty, bare-bones
e-mail client for when I'm in a rush.

Why the goofy name?
Well, mainly because I'm goofy. But here was my thought process: Since
this is a bare-bones product, and since "Bare Bones" has already been taken
as a software name, I tried to think of a way of communicating that there
was no meat on the bones of this software product. If there's no meat on
your plate, what are you left with? Veggies. Stop laughing. I know it's
corny.

What VeggieMail can do
As mentioned above, VeggieMail is intended to be quick, and not that
polished. As such, it can:
* check your e-mail box
* read e-mails (see "What VeggieMail CAN'T do" below)
* reply to e-mails
* delete e-mails
* send a quick e-mail
* save your e-mail account information so you don't have to enter it
every time you check your e-mails
* entertain you and your friends for hours (Fun at parties!)

I wrote VeggieMail to serve a need I had. I get a gazillion e-mails
every day. I hate nothing more than being forced to sit as my computer
downloads attachments from some #[email protected]%!!*%[email protected] spammer. Even with my DSL
connection, I have to wait as these completely unsolicited e-mails flood
into my inbox. I could set up a rule in my main e-mail client (Microsoft
Entourage X), but then I have to wait for its bloated self to load, and as
you might be able to tell by now, I'm impatient. Time spent waiting could be
time I'm earning money.
Therefore, I wanted an e-mail client that could:
* view my e-mails without downloading them
* delete the spam without opening it
* send a quick e-mail if I'm in a hurry so I don't have to load
Entourage
* reply quickly to e-mails
VeggieMail was born. I'm largely happy with Entourage, so I didn't want
to reinvent the wheel -- VeggieMail is NOT a replacement for a full-featured
e-mail program. Instead, it's supposed to be a quick and dirty, bare-bones
e-mail client for when I'm in a rush.

Why the goofy name?
Well, mainly because I'm goofy. But here was my thought process: Since
this is a bare-bones product, and since "Bare Bones" has already been taken
as a software name, I tried to think of a way of communicating that there
was no meat on the bones of this software product. If there's no meat on
your plate, what are you left with? Veggies. Stop laughing. I know it's
corny.

What VeggieMail can do
As mentioned above, VeggieMail is intended to be quick, and not that
polished. As such, it can:
* check your e-mail box
* read e-mails (see "What VeggieMail CAN'T do" below)
* reply to e-mails
* delete e-mails
* send a quick e-mail
* save your e-mail account information so you don't have to enter it
every time you check your e-mails
* entertain you and your friends for hours (Fun at parties!)

Web Confidential is the most powerful password manager on the Mac today.
It organizes passwords and protects them with industrial strength
encryption. It is also available for Windows and Palm operating systems.

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

Subject: DSL in the UK

Hi. I hope shortly to be taking the plunge and finally getting an
ADSL line at home here in London, and I'd like to seek any tips
readers - especially ones in the UK - may have concerning ADSL. There
are quite a few USB DSL modems out there, including ones made by US
Robotics and Dlink; some are advertised as being for the PC. I'm just
wondering whether it really is plug-and-play with these, ie does OS X
recognize and use them straight away, or does one have to rely on
special drivers, which would be a pain. Also, has anyone had any
problems getting PPPoE (or PPPoA as the UK variant is apparently
known) to work under OS X? Thanks in advance for any
suggestions/recommendations.

Richard

Subject: encrypted passwords for mail server?


I am having problems with authentication of passwords using my mac to access
my mail server.

Receiving mail is no problem but when I have to enter my logon and password
to autheticate sending mail, the server rejects it.

I have tested the accounts and passwords with a PC without problems.

Is this a problem with the way ther Mac sends passwords? I remember in the
old days there was always a choice in Eudora for how to send passwords but I
cannot find anywhere to change this.

Does anyone have any idea what might be going wrong and how I can fix it?

TIA

Tony

Subject: password authentication


As a follow-up to my earlier query about password authentication, I have
since tested my settings using a Powerbook which, jusging by the progress
window, sends the password encrypted. The software is the same, Outlook
Express 5.

Using ths machine I have no problems sending messages to third party
addresses through my mail server.

Can anyone tell me how I change the password authentication to make this
happen on my other Mac? I can't find anywhere that lets me change this
setting. Does it have anything to do with UAM?

TIA
Tony

Subject: process downloads via StuffIt Expander NOT StuffIt Deluxe?

I have both StuffIt Deluxe and StuffIt Expander (as rec'd with SD).
I'm running OS X 10.1.3 on a PowerBook G3 1999 Bronze lombard with
384 MB RAM.

Using Internet Explorer, I'd like to set things up so that .sit files
are downloaded and then expanded by StuffIt Expander. I seem to be
unable to effect this consistently. Most of the downloads open in
StuffIt Deluxe, leaving me to do further processing.

I tried mucking about in the Preferences for IE and setting the File
Helpers as follows:
File Type --> Application: StuffIt Expander
Handling --> Post-Process with: StuffIt Expander

I've done this for: .bin, .gz, .hqx, .pit, .SIT, .sit (all
variants!), .taz, .tgz, .zip

I've also tried with StuffIt Deluxe in File Type but StuffIt Expander
in Handling. All to no avail. At present I simply save to file...

'tis as said. [Reality is defined by being described]

Subject: Why Powerbook Titanium get scratched so easily?

Not only it is easily scratched, the paint work of the casing comes out just
as easily.

My latch broke just after one month of getting my Titanium. That happened
despite gentle handling. Surprisingly the latch did not. o make matters
worse, I was quoted exhorbitantly to get it replaced as it was not covered
under Apple warranty
