Subject: [*] Bookmarksman1.40b-Japanese Version

File name : Bookmarksman1.40J
Freeware
Size : 1800k(Stuffed)

(A) New features

(1) Jpeg and Gif images can be collected from web pages via drag/drop, which
can then be sorted as well as stored.

(2) "Find" can be executed by simply pressing the "Return Key."

(3) There are now two window sizes to choose from. The compact window is
ideal as a web companion. It can, however, readily be switched to a larger
window where more serious database management can be conducted. The windows
"snap" back to their respective window-sizes, which are pre-designated and
yet adjustable.

(B) What "Bookmarksman" does:

Bookmarksman, a URL management database solution, helps keep track of web
browser bookmarks that tend to have the nasty habit of haphazardly
accumulating into something unmanageably humongous.

(1) Bookmarks can be coherently organized and utilized as a valuable source
of information.
(2) The powerful Search feature makes it possible to retrieve relevant
bookmarks that are otherwise easily misplaced.
(3) Search results are displayed in list view.
(4) Duplicate URLs are easily extracted and deleted at a stroke.
(5) Bookmarks can be sorted in number of ways.
(6) Drag/Drop-aware.
(7) You can attach notes to bookmarks, which will later be put to use as
keywords in the search mode.
(8) E-mail addresses as well as URLs can be stored.
(9) One click opens a web page or an e-mail sheet.
(10) The last-visited time/date for each bookmark is remembered and the
bookmarks can be viewed as history.
(11) You can "flag" your favorite bookmarks.

Subject: [*] forma_mac.hqx Forma is a Mac Game

Forma 2.0 is an exciting Mac strategy game. Players manipulate falling
block triplets to eliminate moving slider blocks while dodging walls.
Power-ups, different level layouts, and faster falling blocks add to the
challenge while retaining the simple Tetris-like element of matching up
colored blocks. Great graphics, sound effects and music add to the Forma
experience.

System Requirements: Mac OS 8.6, 9.x with CarbonLib 1.1 or Mac OS X 10.1 or
later, Thousands of colors, 12 MB of free RAM.

For more information, visit the Degana web site at http://www.degana.com/

Subject: [*] MailArmor OS 9 1.1.2


MailArmor is an application that helps to keep your electronic mailbox
free of spam: it looks at the relevant parts of your email before it
leaves the mail server, and lets the legitimate messages pass through
undisturbed, while leaving suspect messages on the server, making them
"invisible" for the e-mail client, to be reexamined later or just
deleted after a while. It works as a POP email proxy, with support for
POP, APOP and IMAP mail servers, that makes it compatible with every
e-mail client. The logic behind the filtering has a high level of
sophistication, using local black- and white-lists of senders, an
advanced engine that can use pattern matching, sender verification
techniques and SpamCop and ORDB blacklisting services to automatically
pinpoint junk mail with a extremely high level of accuracy. A proved set
of filters is included, and can easily be adapted by the user to its
individual interests. Complete documentation, FAQs and an help system in
multiple languages (at the moment English, French, Spanish and Italian)
are also included in the download.
Requires MRJ 2.2.5 w/ Swing 1.1.1 (downloadable from Sun site)

Subject: [*] Tex-Edit Plus for OS X 4.3b4J - Japanese Version


This is the Japanese version of the Tex-Edit Plus package.

Tex-Edit Plus is a scriptable, styled text editor that fills the gap
between Apple's bare-bones SimpleText and a full-featured word
processor. It's fast, efficient, and has a clean, uncluttered interface.
It's also great for cleaning up text which is transmitted over the
Internet.

Tex-Edit Plus features: Extensive munging abilities, unlimited file size,
Drag&Drop support, AppleScript support, Word Services support,
Speech Manager support, picture handling, sound handling, movie handling,
ability to create SimpleText Read-Only documents, and much more.

Tex-Edit Plus can read and write UTF-16 (unicode) text. The new file
format is fully backward compatible with previous versions.

Tex-Edit Plus supports unlimited undo and redo.

Each paragraph can be formatted individually. These new paragraph
settings include text justification (left, center, right, full), space
above, space below, left indent, right indent, first line indent (or
hanging outdent), and bottom border (in one of several line styles).
Each paragraph can also have its own line spacing (in one point
increments) and dominant text direction (useful for right-to-left
scripts).

Version 4.3.0b3

* Added "Clear Menu" command to clear the "Open Recent" submenu.
* Added scriptable switch in the prefs dialog to toggle Quartz anti-aliasing.
* Read and write RTF documents.
* OS X Services enabled (in the Tex-Edit Plus menu).
* Quartz anti-aliased text enabled (requires OS 10.1.5 or greater).
* New character styles added (All Caps, All Lowercase, Hidden).
* Click at the left margin to select a line, double click the left
margin to select a paragraph.
* Improved tab efficiency. The "Real Tabs" menu item has been
eliminated, since tabs are always enabled.
* Various minor internal performance enhancements and bug fixes.
* Downgrade alert--> The "Show Invisibles" command will show "hidden"
text, but it no longer shows non-printing characters (CR, FF, Tab,
space). This hopefully will be corrected in a future version of the text engine.
* Fixed script bug involving the "close window saving yes" command.
* Fixed bug noted after editing iDisk files. (Tex-Edit would ask to
mount iDisk at incorrect times.)

Subject: direcPC with a Mac

Does anyone know if it is possible to use the USB DirecPC
satellite internet system with a Mac. The specs naturally call for
a Windows system other than NT which does not support USB. It is not
a card but an external USB box so it seems to me that there ought to
be a way of using it. Is it a matter of drivers that prevents its
use or are there unsupported ways to make it all happen. ExpressVu
Satellite Canada is my provider and they claim to use the DirecPC
system however they do not support Mac for this purpose either out of
a technical issue or in my opinion a lack of knowledge on the
subject. If anyone has any information on this I would appreciate an
email regarding the subject. Thanks in advance. [email protected]

A couple of options:

1. Set up a Desktop printer for your PostScript printer; when you want to switch back to this printer from the non-PS printer, click on the Desktop printer and choose "Set Default Printer" from the "Printing" menu in the Finder. Don't use the Chooser. Attempts to print to this printer will fail, but you'll still be able to print to a PS file.

2. Use Desktop Printer Utility to create a Desktop Printer which is specifically set up to print to a PostScript file rather than to a printer. You'll create a "Translator (PostScript)" printer type in the DTPU. Set it as your active printer using the method described above. This type of virtual printer won't require you to remember to select "print to file" in the print dialog. It'll behave just like a normal printer, except that everything you send to it will end up as a PostScript file somewhere. No network connection required.

Hope this helps.

Aside from AppleScript, which I have been promising to learn for several

I use Quickeys for X. It is somewhat limited compared to the OS 9 version
(not to mention OneClick, the ultimate OS 9 macro program), but I find it
very useful. I like the options of keystroke, system menu, and toolbars.
It is pretty expensive. Check out Youpi Key which is freeware and is being

Yes. You have to play your old vinyl records into your Mac and
digitize them there. If you've ever set up a tape recorder to record
from the Sound Out ports on your amp (or dedicated TAPE RECORD ports)
to tape deck's Sound In, just change this:

Turntable-->preamp-->amplifier-->tape deck

to this:

Turntable--->preamp-->amplifier-->Mac

(if you don't need a preamp to play records through the regular
speakers you don't need a preamp for this either)

This assumes that your Mac has 16 bit stereo Sound In. Some of the
newer Macs don't. If yours is one of those, you need a USB audio
doohickey that takes the place of the old built-in Sound In jacks:

Turntable-->preamp-->amplifier-->USB SoundIn-->Mac

You may also need plug adapters. Most stereo equipment uses RCA
jacks and one cable per channel (left & right wires). Most Macs with
Sound In built in will have a single stereo headphone-style jack.
You'll need a Y adapter with headphone jack at the botto and dual
RCAs at the top.

Then you need sound software that records sound for durations
sufficient to do the longest tracks you anticipate recording. There
is a lot of almost-adequate shareware in the snd directory at
Info-Mac, and lots of commercial apps that are way beyond adequate.
I use an extinct program called SoundEdit 16, so I can't advise you
on which package to use unless you also have an old copy of SoundEdit
16 layout about. But the process should be similar regardless of
package:

Using the Sound (or Monitors & Sound) Control Panel, or the Sound
Prefs Pane (OS X), designate your Sound In (built-in or USB) as the
source to use as designated Sound In. Launch the program. Set up
your album on the turntable. Start the program's recording (most
likely it will mimic the appearance of a tape deck's controls with an
obvious "Record" button). Cue the needle down to start playing.
Adjust recording levels in the program if necessary (this may require
restarting the track and starting the recording over if you change
levels).

You can either record one track at a time (trimming it in the program
and saving it as a digital audio file) or save one album side at a
time (then using editing controls to chop up the resultant huge audio
file into individual smaller track files). In SoundEdit 16, which is
old, I don't have the option of saving as MP3 so I save as AIFF and
then convert the files to MP3 using a separate MP3 encoder
application. More modern sound software will probably let you save
directly to MP3.

Hello Tom,

Yes.

Roxio, the makers of Toast software, have an application that does this as
part of the Toast package. I'm not sure, but believe that it may be called
CD spin doctor. It allows you to capture analog audio to hard disk and then,
of course, burn it to CD. I believe that it has some filters, etc. to reduce
hiss and pops, etc.

Good luck,
SH

Subject: VIRTUAL CD

A friend who is a PC user showed me a program called "Virtual CD". It
enables one to store the full contents of a CD-ROM disk (or several
disks) as virtual disks on the computer system hard drive. This way
the CD-ROM contents can be accessed quickly and without inserting
anything into the drive.

Is there a program for the Mac which will do this? I realize that
there is some say to do this for floppy disks, but I don't know what
will work for a CD-ROM.

Thank you,

Kimball Kramer
