Subject: [*] Edible Landscaping 4.7

Version 4.7 adds some minor features and removes minor bugs. It now
requires a screen resolution of 640x480 or better. Some plant info has been
updated. April, 2002

Edible Landscaping is an encyclopedia of perennials that are worth growing
primarily for produce. Every such plant that can be grown in at least three
USDA hardiness zones (i.e., can withstand 15 F or below) is covered in the
database. It includes fruits, nuts, herbs, and even a few perennial
vegetables. Uncommon edibles such as the jujube and chayote are included,
as well as popular favorites like strawberries and walnuts. The majority of
plants have color photos attached, often illustrating different aspects
(e.g., in a landscape, and a closeup).

Edible Landscaping can be used in conjunction with a large archive of color
pictures. It expects the photos to be in a folder named "EL Pictures"; it
can also be mixed with the photos in one folder. If you have difficulties
viewing the photos, try increasing the RAM (memory) available to the
program. 2500K should be plenty and 2000K will probably work too. You
allocate memory with the "Get Info..." command in the Finder.

Edible Landscaping is as a standalone application made in Hypercard. It
does not require Hypercard as a separate application. It will work on any
Macintosh. It does require 2.5 MB of available RAM and 7 MB of diskspace.

Displaying the pictures may require Quicktime 2.5--I'm not sure
(Hypercard's built in commands take care of showing the pictures--it's not
something I programmed). Edible Landscaping was tested under MacOS 7.6.1
with Quicktime 3.0, and 8.1 & 9.04 with Quicktime 4.1.

Detailed instructions are available from within the Edible Landscaping

Edible Landscaping costs $15.

Bon Apetit.

Subject: [*] URL Manager Pro 3.0fc19J - Japanese Version

This is the Japanese version of the URL Manager Pro package.

"In the shareware arena, my pick is URL Manager" - Adam C. Engst

"You have got me addicted" - Henry Norr, San Francisco Chronicle

"A must have for serious Web users" - Tucows rating: 5 out of 5

URL Manager Pro is the most powerful bookmark manager on the Macintosh.
It offers:

* Integration : You have access to your bookmarks from your browser's
menu bar and from the Mac OS X Dock.

* Document Storage : Your bookmarks are stored in URL Manager Pro
bookmark documents, which you can store and manipulate in the normal
Macintosh way. No need to hunt for your bookmarks in preferences folders
of browsers. You can make automatic periodic saves and make copies of
bookmark documents on backup devices on each save.

* History : You can surf the web using several different browsers while
URL Manager Pro will keep recording the History of each.

* Importing and exporting bookmarks : The File menu gives you a list of
all of the browsers that URL Manager Pro can import from and export to.
It lets you 'harvest' bookmarks by scanning HTML and text files for
bookmarks and URLs.

* It lets you edit and organize bookmarks fast : You can use inline
editing, label and color your bookmarks and use drag and drop of
bookmarks within and between bookmark windows.

* Tap Sherlock power : You can index your bookmark file and tap the
power of Sherlock to look for words in your bookmark files.

This version correct a problem with auto-scrolling under Mac OS X,
correctly saves bookmarks created with the context menu plug-in
when URL Manager Pro is hidden in the background, and sports an
improved MSIE icon in Mac OS X.

Subject: Acrobat 5 files do not open with 2X click

I am running system 9.1 and have Acrobat Writer 5 installed.

Suddenly, out of the blue, I can no longer open Acrobat files by
double clicking on them or by drag and drop on the Acrobat 5

Double clicking does open Acrobat 5, but then I have to use the open
menu to open the files.

This applies to new files and old files.

I CAN open Acrobat files by drag and drop on Acrobat Writer 4 or by
double clicking on an Acrobat file when Acrobat 4 is open.

Any ideas on how I can fix this problem?

Thanks in advance for your help!
