Subject: [*] CDFinder 3.6.3 for Mac OS 8.6 - Mac OS X

CDFinder is a very fast and powerful tool to catalog your hard
disks, CD-ROMs, DVDs, floppies, ZIPs and anything else that spins.
It has a great user interface and very useful search functions.
CDFinder supports drag&drop and requires a PowerPC CPU.
While System 8.6 is required, CDFinder is also fully compatible to
MacOS 9.2.2 and Mac OS X.
A special feature is the multi-lingual user interface
(German/French/English/Italian/Swedish/Spanish/Chinese).

Together with CDWinder 1.6 for Windows,
this is a special cross platform, network solution to catalog disks
and CD-ROMs on a Macintosh and a PC.

The new version can be obtained from the CDFinder home page
.

A single user license of CDFinder is $25, multi user licenses are available.

New in CDFinder 3.6.3:

- The Windows menu has been updated to work in Jaguar (Mac OS X 10.2)

- CDFinder now reads the new MP3-Tag "Composer" that was introduced
in iTunes 3.0.

- CDFinder can now import existing Disk Recall 1.2.8 catalogs, giving
those users a migration path to Mac OS X (as there is no Mac OS X
version of Disk Recall).

- The Setup Assistant has a new language menu in the first page to
allow a direct switch to a different language in CDFinder.

- A few minor display problems in Mac OS X are solved.

This version requires Mac OS 8.6 and CarbonLib 1.3.1 or newer.

Subject: [*] FileBuddy 7.2.3J - Japanese Version


This is the Japanese version of the FileBuddy package.

File Buddy is quite simply the best utility available for working with
files and folders on your Macintosh. First released more than nine years
ago, it has been continually enhanced, improved, and supported since
that time.

File Buddy 7 requires a PowerPC-based Macintosh with Mac OS X or Mac OS 9
and CarbonLib 1.5 or later.

File Buddy 6 requires a PowerPC-based Macintosh with System 7.6 or
later.

File Buddy 5 is available for 68K Macintoshes.

* View and edit a wide range of file and folder information in the info window.
* Create droplet applications that automatically apply changes to items
dropped on them, including the contents of folders.
* Find files and folders using an extensive set of search criteria.
Enhance file searches with plug-ins that extend file search
capabilities. Conveniently perform a wide variety of actions on found
items. Make File Buddy your default file finding application using the
File Buddy CP control panel.
* Use the Rename window to modify the names of multiple files at once.
For example, remove ".txt" from the names of a group of files. Replace
characters in multiple names.
* Use contextual menus to accomplish many tasks in a single step.
* Create custom icons: from PICTs on the clipboard; from the contents
of graphics files and, with Mac OS X, PDF files; from other icons; for
folders using a variety of templates; with blank icons; using only small
icons. View complete icon families with the icon family viewer.
* Create aliases.
* Find empty files and folders, orphaned files, duplicate files, broken
aliases, and unused preference files.
* Automatically repair broken aliases
* Move, delete, and copy files. Even copy invisible files and use the
Replace Different option to skip copying files that already exist.
* Delete data and resource forks from files.
* Erase files, entire folders, and unused disk space to avoid
unauthorized recovery of deleted files.
* Create snapshots that can be used to track the changes on a disk,
such as files installed by an installer. Use snapshots to uninstall
applications.
* Much, much more...

Subject: [*] MetricMaster v3.0.7


MetricMaster is a measurement unit conversions calculator containing
over 2,000 metric/S.I., imperial, U.S., and other units in its database,
most to 14 significant digit precision. New units can be easily added by
the user. MM Supports ft/in/fractions, scientific notation and control of
significant digits. MM can also convert currencies, clock times, and many
physical constants. Version 3.0 has been given an elegant aqua style
interface and now contains 600 definitions for units and unit groups (in
case you didn't know what a weber was). MM also contains extensive
information on the history and development of modern measurement systems.

Feature List:
* 1500+ measurement units organized hierarchically in over 100 "modes"
(Length, Volume, Area, Force, Pressure, and many others) and nine categories
(Basics, Electricity, Heat, History, Light & Radiation, Mechanics, Time,
Unit Costs & Quantities, and Trivia).
* Over 120,000 different conversions are possible.
* Converts commonly used compound units such as: "tons, pounds, and
ounces", "hours, minutes, and seconds", and "feet, inches and fractions"
* Contains over 58 physical constants such as: "speed of light" and
"gravitational acceleration"
* Converts clock times between any two of over 200 locations in the
world, in standard or 24-hour format
* Trivia conversions in the "Trivia" category, to answer such important
questions as: "How many times higher is Mount Everest than the Washington
Memorial?", or "How much would I weigh on Jupiter?"
* Currency conversions
* Significant figures vs. "calculator" display.
* U.S./English vs. International number formatting (commas vs. spaces).
* Scientific vs. standard notation.
* Record complete conversions (original value and unit name with
converted value and unit name) in built-in journal, or save conversions to
text files that can be opened and edited by most spreadsheets and word
processors
* Zoom down window view to show only units and values for repeat
conversions for convenient cutting and pasting into open documents in other
applications
* 600 unit and unit group definitions are included
* Customized conversion table generation
* Easily add and remove units from the database
* Store up to 30 often-used conversions in a pull-down menu for quick
access.
* Comprehensive on-line help with insights on the history and
methodology of measurement.

Subject: [*] PandoCalendar 6.0 - Customizable desktop calendar for your Mac.


PandoCalendar is a useful Mac-only program places a fully functional
calendar on your desktop. The look is completely customizable. You
can change the calendar font and its size, and the calendar's
background color; you can center the current week (so you are always
able to look back and ahead a full month at a time), display the
numerical number of the weeks of the year, display the calendar with
European style weeks (Monday being the first day and Sunday being the
last), assign notes to any day of the year by clicking on the day in
the calendar, and set alarms to remind you of time sensitive events.
You can also have PandoCalendar automatically plot the days you work.
Great for people who don't have a Monday-Friday work schedule!

Version 6.0 - PandoCalendar now requires Mac OS X 10.1. The calendar
background can now be transparent. Frames can now support alpha
channel transparency. The dock icon now displays the current day of
month. Fixed slowdowns when running on Mac OS X 10.2. Removed
anti-aliasing preference, it is now always on. Fixed a bug that could
cause the command, option, or control keys to act as if they are
being held down if a reminder is displayed as one of the keys was
being pressed. Note balloons now open in front of the dock.

Hello!

I've got Panasonic (Matshita) CD-Recorder "CW-7503 B" without any
software & would like to use it with G3 Beige/OS 9.2.2. It seems
Matshita doesn't care about using it with Mac (their list of drivers
includes merely Windows&DOS versions for this recorder). Does anybody
use or know MacOS extension allowing full access to all CW-7503's
features? Any information would be highly appreciated.

Yakov.

You can eliminate this problem by unchecking the option to launch
Classic on startup of OS X in the Classic panel. Apple acknowledges
the bug, which is probably eliminated in Jaguar, in a tech note.

You may have noticed that OS X continues booting even after the
desktop appears. You can launch apps, but waiting until it has
finished before launching Classic eliminates the pasting problem
between Classic and OS X.

Hope this helps (I'm a little behind in my digests!). Cheers,

Subject: hide after switch

I used to use Action Go Mac solely for the "Hide After Switch" feature
that was not available as a part of the OS. Then, when I moved to OS
X, I changed to "X-Assist". In both of these cases, the applications
do a great deal more than I want/need, and I fear that they may be
causing some mischief in my OS (especially when classic is running!) It
looks as if Jaguar *still* does not have this ability, am I wrong? Did
I miss it somewhere? If it is not a hidden preference somewhere, does
anyone know of a background application that would allow me to turn
this function on and off easily? Any help would be greatly
appreciated.

Way behind on my digests, but restart OS X while holding down
command-S. When you get the unix terminal display, it'll tell you to
type '/sbin/fsck -y'. Do it. Repeat if it found any errors, until it
finds none.

Then, type 'mount -uw /' (return), then 'chmod 1775 /' (return).

This is detailed in Knowledge Base document #106464, section II.5.
Hope this helps. Cheers,
