Subject: [*] LockOut Classic 4.1J - Japanese version

This is the Japanese version of the LockOut package for Mac OS 8 and 9. A
version for Mac OS X is also available.

LockOut is a simple application to help keep people from using your Mac
while you're away. LockOut helps keep your Mac safe from co-workers
while at the office, and from your kids while at home.

Once LockOut is activated, all anyone will see on your Mac is the LockOut
security screen:

*A valid password must first be entered to access your Mac
*Messages can be left by others
*Create your own custom voice warning
*Easily activated with a customizable hot key
*Activate automatically after a pause time
*Monitor security warnings from anywhere in the world via e-mail.
*And more...

New for LockOut 4.0 and 4.1:
- New background window option in General prefs: ScreenSaver.
- New Security prefs: Clear session log. If set, the log clears when LockOut quits.
- Password set from the File menu (instead of the Preferences).
- Admin utility can disable the user from setting the password.
- If the username is blank, LockOut fills it with the name from the File Sharing
control panel, and if that fails, from the Internet control panel.
- Admin mode is now set by a separate application called "LockOut
Admin". This application is normally used by a system administrator.
- New Security preferences added:
--- "Warn of any break-in attempts after exiting LockOut mode". If
checked, and if any break-in attempts occur, an alert appears after
exiting LockOut mode.
--- "Switch to last application after exiting LockOut mode". If
checked, after exiting LockOut mode the last application used prior to
LockOut becomes the front application.
--- "Use Keychain for password". If checked, LockOut stores and uses
the password found in the default Keychain Access control panel. You
can edit the Keychain Access control panel and add a new LockOut
password item (Important: the Name must be LockOut, and the Account must
be the user name used for LockOut).
--- ügAllow other apps to Quit LockOut without a password when in LockOut
modeüh. If checked, allows other applications (like the Finder) to quit
LockOut without LockOut requesting a password.
- New General preferences added:
-- "Hide Login window when in LockOut mode" hides the Login window until
the mouse moves or a key is pressed.
- Background picture can now be PICT, JPEG, TIFF, or GIFF file.

Subject: [*] SkinShrinker version 1.1 update

SkinShrinker v1.1

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, SKN, and BMP files to make them Mac-compatible.

New in this version:
* added BMP file renaming support
* added compatibility with CMX files that have a custom comment on the
first line

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

SkinShrinker is copyright 2002, Cherie Benoit.

Subject: [*] Web Confidential 3.0.4J - Japanese Version

Web Confidential 3.0.4 for Mac OS X and Mac OS 9 - Japanese version

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.

"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

This version includes the new version of WC for Palm with a conduit for Mac OS X
and resolves a problem with garbled text when synchronizing between Palm and
desktop versions,

Web Confidential is shareware.

Requirements: Mac OS X or Mac OS 9.

Subject: [*] Web Confidential for Palm 1.3J - Japanese Version

This is the Japanese version of the Web Confidential for Palm OS package (Mac OS version).

"Web Confidential is easy to use, secure, and well-integrated" - Adam C.
Engst, TidBITS (Web Confidential for Mac review)

Web Confidential is an intuitive, easy-to-use program for
managing user IDs, passwords, registration numbers, and the like.

While Web Confidential is suitable for a wide variety of personal data,
from credit card numbers to serial numbers, Alco Blom designed Web
Confidential particularly for the World Wide Web in mind. "Increasing
numbers of Web sites maintain some form of user registration," points
out Blom. "You may not realize it, but in the course of time you may
registered at a couple of dozen sites. Do you remember the passwords
you entered for all of them?"

Web Confidential allows Web surfers to store URLs, user IDs, and
passwords in one secure location.

To ensure the personal information stored in Web Confidential remains
confidential, the program's password files can be encrypted using
state-of-the-art encryption technology.

Web Confidential for Palm is a solution to keep your data secure while
you travel with your Palm and need access to your confidential data.

Web Confidential for Palm is supplied with a Macintosh Conduit, so that
you can synchronize your data with your Mac.

Version 1.3

*Generate hexadecimal passwords for WEP keys.
*On color devices every other row in the List view has non-white background
*On color devices the colour of the item in List view can be chosen in Edit view.
*Categories adjusted to Web Confidential for Mac OS v3.0
*The Conduit has some clearer log messages.
*Includes conduit for Mac OS X.
*Resolves garbled text problems when syncing with the desktop version (Mac OS).

Subject: looking for Bryan Arntson

Bryan C. Arntson wrote several Shareware games: Awesome Craps, Awesome
Blackjack, Awesome Roulette, and Awesome SicBo, note they are all a bit
old. I want to contact Bryan, but his email addresses no longer work and
postal mail to his address has been returned to sender.

Does anyone have any recent information about Bryan C. Arntson?
Curiosity killed the cat,
but satisfaction brought it back.

Blessings, Denny
