Subject: [*] Dragthing 4.3

DragThing is the original dock designed to tidy up your Macintosh desktop.
Simply drag an application from the Finder onto an empty square in a dock
and then drag documents onto it as normal. Click a docked application to
launch it or bring it to the front.

In addition, the docks can contain files, folders, disks and servers, and
there are also options to display the currently running processes, and all
mounted disks, in special docks. On Mac OS X, you can even show the Trash on
the Finder Desktop again.

Major new features in this version include:

* A new dynamic "Disk Dock" which can display all your hard disks, removable
media, and connected servers, much in the same way as the "Process Dock"
displays all your running applications. Free your desktop!

* You can now use almost any key as a hot key on Mac OS X to open
applications and documents, run AppleScripts, and open URLs - including
the function keys. No modifier keys required!

* DragThing is now a multi-lingual bundled application with support for
English, Japanese, German, French and Italian.

* Dozens more features and fixes requested by registered DragThing users

A full list of all the changes is here:

Subject: [*] IGS twisted 1.1

IGS Twisted is a MacOS X screen saver which goes in the screen saver
folder. IGS Twisted is just a bunch of squares in 3D space (using
OpenGL).
The interesting part is the movement algorithm (independently
developed). There are more than 12 different controls adapted to the
"psychic vibes" surrounding your computer. Some say it synchronizes to
any music playing but it may just be myth. Downlo ad and see for
yourself.
New versions will enable you to control the look and feel of art.

New in Version 1.1
Trails option
Trail Length for defining how long the trails are
Trail appearance time period
Lighting
Mono Color
Takes less processor time to do its thing

Subject: [*] LockOut 4.1

LockOut is a $15 Mac application that helps keep people from using your Mac
while you're away. Helps keep your Mac safe from your co-workers while at
the office, and from your kids while at home.

email: [email protected]
www:

New for LockOut 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.

New for LockOut 4.0:
Below is a partial list of new features.

Ç Admin mode is now set by a separate application called "LockOut Admin".
This application is normally used by a system administrator type person.
"LockOut Admin" allows enabling or disabling of LockOut functions. For
example, the LockOut 'quit' function or any of the preferences can be
disabled for whatever reason.

Ç 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).

--- þAllow other apps to Quit LockOut without a password when in LockOut
mode™. If checked, allows other applications (like the Finder) to quit
LockOut without LockOut requesting a password.

Subject: [*] PresentMovie 1.4

PresentMovie - a simple utility for playing QuickTime compatible movies,
full screen
(c) 2002 by Roland Gustafsson, All Rights Reserved

What does PresentMovie do?

PresentMovie plays QuickTime compatible movies (.mov, .mpg or VCDs)
stretched to fit the full screen.

The main reason I wrote PresentMovie was to allow my children to easily view
QT movies without having to go through the multiple steps required in
QuickTime Player Pro. (cmd-O to open movie, cmd-M for present movie, select
full screen with mouse, click OK)

How do I use it?

PresentMovie is unusual in that it doesn't have a standard user interface.
You can use it in a few different ways:

1) Drag one or more movies to PresentMovie and they are played one after the
other.

2) Drag a folder containing movies to PresentMovie and they are played.
(Only the movies in the immediate folder.)

3) Place a copy of PresentMovie in a folder with one or more movies and then
simply launch PresentMovie which scans the folder in which you launched it
for movies which it then plays.

4) Drag a VCD icon to PresentMovie and it is played. (MacOS 8.1-9.2 only)

Keyboard commands:

--- Movie Size ---
0 - half size
1 - normal size
2 - double size
3 - fill screen maintaining aspect ratio (default)
(Note that 0-3 match the equivalent cmd-keys in QuickTime Player)
4 - fill screen completely (will distort if aspect ratio of movie doesn't
match monitor)
- - reduce size
+ - increase size
