Anyone know how to refill black ink for the Epson Stylus Photo 820.
Cost is very high for a refill. I tried to add ink via the two
openings on top of the cartridge, but the printer does not seem to
recognize that as a viable cartridge.

Subject: [*] Abstract for Fretboard Warrior

Fretboard warrior 1.0

Fretboard Warrior is a free utility designed to help guitar student to
memorize the fretboard.

The rules are simple, click the note that corresponds to the blue dot on the
fretboard. The bottom string corresponds to the 6th string and the upper
string corresponds to the 1st string.

When the 5 minute countdown is over, write down the date and your score.
Do the exercice every day, and you will notice a great improvement.

Don't forget to practice on a real guitar as well!

Subject: [*] Clean-Install Assistant 1.5.3J - Japanese Version

This is the Japanese version of the Clean-Install Assistant package.

Clean-Install Assistant makes it easier to migrate third-party and
personal items to a new Clean-Installed System Folder, and it may also be
used to:

*Save space and backup your valuable additions and preference files
only, instead of the whole System Folder.

*Install the same set of additions on multiple Macs.

*Remove extra files and folders from your System Folder to restore it
to a previous state: you can take a "snapshot" of the System Folder
and have Clean-Install Assistant extract any items added since.

v1.5.3 allows moving files from Mac OS 9.2.2 to a newer Mac OS version,
or to/from 9.2.2 and previous versions.

It is free for personal and educational use.

Subject: [*] CopyPaste Classic 4.5J - Japanese Version

This is the Japanese version of the CopyPaste package for Mac OS Classic.

CopyPaste-X for Mac OS X is also available.

One of the early wonders of the Mac was its revolutionary ability to do
copy and paste across various applications. Unlike other areas in the
Mac's system software that have changed and progressed over the years,
copying and pasting has not evolved. How many times have you found
yourself going back and forth copying in one application and pasting in
a different application, wishing to yourself that you could copy 5-10
items at a time, then go to another application and paste each of these
items? Now you can, with a vengeance!

To install, drag and drop the CopyPaste application onto your active
System Folder. It will tell you it wants to go into the Extension
Folder. Hit OK. Restart.

CopyPaste eliminates tedious, repetitive work and increases your ability
to get the job done. Below is an overview of everything CopyPaste does.
Donüft be overwhelmed by all the descriptions. Donüft try to understand or
use everything at once. Just install it and read about the Clip Extender
and the CopyPaste Palettes - then try it out a little at a time.
CopyPaste will grow on you!

Version 4.5
* Shows a picture preview on the palette if a picture is in the
* The default clipboard (without number) now only goes into the Clip
Recorder and will not change the clipboard 0 in the Clip Extender
anymore. Two reasons are: You gain one more numbered clipboard
accessible via command-C-0. The program source is cleaner because I do
not have to handle so many special cases whenever a clipboard is
accessed. This should cause less errors.
* The display of the cliboard data for the menu and palette text preview
is now extracted from the clipboard in real time. It was formerly done
only once at copy time and could be wrong if the copy failed due to an
error. The result was an empty clipboard still showing a content title.
* Most important for OS X users this version can communicate with
CopyPaste-X and transfer the classic clipboard to CopyPaste-X.
* Some smaller bugfixes

Subject: [Q] OS 9.2.x for Power Tower

I finally moved my old Power Computing tower to OS 9.1 (from 8.6) and
I'm trying to remember if there is any reason not to move it to OS
9.2. I have found 9.2 much more stable on my Titanium and am hoping
for the same improvement on a machine used by my family and less
under my direct control.

Subject: QUERY ON WORD 98

I am using Word98 under MacOS 9.0.4. I would like to activate the
menu bar (at the top of the screen) using a keyboard shortcut. I seem
to remember both control-tab and function key F-10 as doing this,
perhaps in earlier versions, but neither seems to do anything now.

Can anyone tell me how to do this?

After activating the menu bar, one can use the arrow and various
letter keys to select functions in the dropdown menus.

Thank you for your help,

Kimball Kramer
