Subject: [*] BackSlide - a Java puzzle with a twist

BackSlide is a Java implementation of a puzzle by Christiaan Freeling.
Obviously the history of BackSlide goes back to the invention of the
'15' puzzle, commonly attributed to Sam Loyd. But it is much nicer than
"yet another '15' puzzle".

Viewed on one side, it has 652 different solutions (as opposed to Loyd's 1).
8 of these are also meta-solutions, that is: both sides of the puzzle are
solved simultaneously.
All 652 solutions are included in a separate SlideShow applet, while
4 meta-solutions are accessible from a pop-up menu.
And here's the twist: If you find one other meta-solution, you will get
permanent access to _all_. Alternatively, you can register for US$5 and
get full access.
Please see ReadMe.html (within the package) for all the details.

The package contains all the necessary files to play BackSlide off-line.
It requires a Java enabled web browser, for instance
Netscape Navigator 3.0 or Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0.

BackSlide is US$5 shareware, copyright by Solar Software,
You can preview and play BackSlide on-line, or download the package,
>From there.

Have fun,

If you like you may include the program on the Info-Mac CD-Rom.

Subject: [*] BitSURFR QuicConfig v1.0.5

Quicomm's BitSURFR QuicConfig application provides you with the easiest way
to get your BitSURFR Pro up & running with your Macintosh!

Why struggle through all the parameter settings of your BitSURFR Pro
through AT Commands when you can simply select settings through popup
menus and edit boxes? Save settings in profile documents. Build protocol
setup strings with the Protocol Window. And upgrading your BitSURFR
Pro's firmware is a breeze with QuicConfig's built-in Y-Modem G
function. We even provide you with the link to Motorola's site where you
can immediately download the latest firmware!

You don't even have to set the port configuration. Just launch QuicConfig
and it will automatically find your BitSURFR Pro and download the current
switch and protocol configurations.

QuicConfig can be run in demonstration mode before choosing to register.

System requirements:
* System 7.0 or later
* Any Macintosh (680x0 or PowerPC)
* 1 MB free RAM
* Motorola BitSURFR Pro ISDN Modem

For screen shots of QuicConfig, please visit Quicomm's Web site at

P.S. BitSURFR is not a typo. That is Motorola's name for their ISDN
Terminal Adapter.

We give permission for our program to be included on the Info-Mac CD-ROM.

Subject: [*] Breaker 1.0.3 (an arcade game)

Breaker 1.0.3 - Release Notes

Breaker will play on any computer running the Mac OS.
System 7.0 or later is required. It looks and runs best in 256 colours
(8-bit), but it will run in scaled down black & white mode on really old
Macs. Minimum memory requirements are 900 K of available RAM; 1200 K (1.2
MB) is preferred.

Breaker is a lighthearted, original and addictive little arcade game which
has been described as a kind of cross between Centipede and Pac-Man. The
playing field is dynamic - it's almost a living thing which is ever
changing and forcing you to keep your wits about you. It's got cute colour
graphics, fast & furious game play (things SPEED UP as your score
increases), and lots of funky, noisy little sounds.

You are OG, a chubby little creature with a backback. To move him around,
use the arrow keys or the keypad ("8" for up, "2" for down, "4" for left,
"6" for right.) You can also specify a custom keyboard setup. To STOP the
OG, press the spacebar (or any other unassigned key.)

Note: Consult the ONLINE HELP for an in-depth look at Breaker and how to
play it.

Breaker is shareware. If you like the game, you're encouraged to
contribute $10.00 in US or Canadian funds. (Or, just send me your
comments!) Please let me know what version of Breaker you're running, and
what kind of system you're running it on. Write to this address:

Thanks, and enjoy the game!

Subject: [*] CommuniGate FaxGate 1.9.5

The FaxGate is a CommuniGate communication module supporting fax messaging.
It converts messages to the fax format and sends them to remote fax machines.
The module can receive incoming faxes and route them as messages to the

The module is multi-line, i.e. it can support several fax lines

When installed together with the Voice Gate, FaxGate can route incoming faxes
to any recipient (locally or over e-mail), it can implement fax-on-demand and
other fax-center features.

The FaxGate supports Class 2 and Class 2.0 fax modems connected via serial
ports. Make sure that your modem really supports Class 2 or Class 2.0 faxing
before you try it with FaxGate. Many old fax modms support fax Class 1 only.

To compose and send messages as faxes, you can use not only the CommuniGator
application, but also the print driver "FaxSender".

The latest version can be obtained at:

Updates since last posted
* When processing the *.faxconv addresses, the "remote-printer.user" name is
generated instead of the name "X" to provide compatibilities with
non-CommuniGate "" (free fax) servers.
* "*.facs" domain domains are supported in the same manner as "*.fax" to
allow redirecting only certain numbers to local FaxGate (and its fax
modems) while other fax messages are routed to some other, external

Subject: [*] CommuniGate SMTPGate 2.0.1

The SMTPGate is a CommuniGate communication module supporting E-mail message
transfer using the SMTP and ESMTP Internet protocols (RFC821, RFC1425) via
TCP/IP networks. Besides, it supports receiving E-mail even via dial-up
connections - by means of wake-up E-mails and/or the Remote Queue Starting
procedure described in RFC1985 (in both client and server modes). MIME (RFC
1341) support and various attachment encoding methods are provided within the
CommuniGate Server kernel itself.

The SMTPGate module supports multi-stream communications, and it can send
messages to and receive messages from several other hosts simultaneously.

The SMTPGate module can work together with POPGate module providing complete
TCP/IP Internet E-mail services.

The SMTPGate module can work together with UUCPGate module providing both
TCP/IP and UUCP Internet E-mail. The CommuniGate Router takes care of
directing messages to the proper gate.

The latest version of the SMTPGate can be obtained from:

Subject: [*] Retrieve It! 2.5 Demo for Macintosh

Retrieve It! 2.5 is a cool new Macintosh utility that lets you search the
Internet *and* your hard drive.

It works with your browser to provide short cuts to powerful online
search services like AltaVista, InfoSeek, Yahoo, PCQuote, Four11, and
others. You can search the World Wide Web, online news sources,
classified ads and Usenet -- and lookup stock quotes, email addresses,
and other online information -- all about twice as fast as using your web
browser directly. And you can search through hundreds of files on your
hard drive in seconds to find the ones that mention the words or phrases
you specify. Vist for the full story.

This demo version of Retrieve It! 2.5 is just like the full version,
except it only lets you use a couple World Wide Web search services, and
it only lists the first two found files for any given hard drive search.
This package includes an online help file and a good readme file.

Subject: [*] ShatterBat 1.0.0 -- cool 3D game!

RICHMOND, VA -- OCTOBER 2, 1996 -- Antennahead Industries, Inc. rolled out
their new title ShatterBat today, setting a new standard for quality and
technological performance in the Macintosh shareware market. Featuring
fast- paced arcade shooting action in a surreal, gravityless, 3D texture-
mapped environment, ShatterBat combines great gameplay with state-of-the-
art graphics.

"Like all the games that have become classics, ShatterBat's basic premise
is simple -- shoot the bats, avoid the Big Giant Head, get the powerups,
and beat the clock," says designer Andrew Meggs. "But in that simplicity
lies the elegance of it, and as the pace quickens, the game really draws
you in. When we were developing it, there were times when I literally had
to grab the mouse away from testers so I could finish putting the game

Other players were a bit less technical about it. "You mean this is
shareware? I can just go download it? I'm there!" said one victim of an
early preview.

In addition to the great gameplay, ShatterBat shows some of the best
graphics to hit the Mac market in a while -- high-performance true 3D
texture-mapped polygons in a six degree of freedom world, the annoyingly
graceful flight of swarm upon swarm of evil robotic bats, and the ever-
present Mister Bob are all right in your face for big-time first-person
action! Don't stop there, though, because you also get high-quality stereo
sound and a funky soundtrack, all for the low shareware price of only $12!

See for yourself where the action is! Visit Antennahead Industries, Inc.'s
web site at today to get your full, uncrippled
copy of ShatterBat and see all the other great toys we make, or find it
wherever you like to get your shareware games. ShatterBat runs on all 68040
machines with floating-point ability, and plays insanely great on

Antennahead Industries, Inc. -- a recognized leader in supplying high-
performance 3D graphics code to game designers -- is moving aggressively
into the Macintosh game market with commercial and shareware titles.

Subject: [*] SndSampler 3.2.1

Version 3.2.1 is the latest and greatest release of SndSampler, the
ultimate Macintosh sound tool. It is specifically designed for
discriminating users who want to create sounds for use with other
applications. You can just have a lot of fun with it, too! It's easy enough
for the beginner, yet sophisticated enough for the professional. Not to
mention that it's extremely compact: it won't take up a lot of disk space,
and it won't require a RAM upgrade just to launch it. Here are some of
SndSampler's more salient features:

raw audio
- Any file of any type may be imported as raw audio using a wide variety of
- Sun/NeXT and WAVE file handling doesn't rely on QuickTime or the Sound
Manager (QuickTime can be quirky in these areas)
- Features extensive batch processing capabilities: just drop all 800 files
you want to downsample (for example) onto SndSampler's icon while holding
down the cmd key
- Allows synching of sounds to QuickTime movies and provides other
movie-editing features
- Compression: MACE 3:1, MACE 6:1, ulaw 2:1, IMA 4:1
- ulaw 2:1 de/compression doesn't rely on QuickTime or the Sound Manager
(Apple's ulaw codec is buggy)
- Can open up to 70 sounds at once
- Includes special code to make the Pro Audio Spectrum PAS16 sound card
work correctly
- Many effects: echo, reverb (two types), chorus, flange, pitch bend, etc.
- Dynamic pan allows you to make a sound travel from one stereo field to
the other while it is playing
- Fully-functional undo
- Extensive user's guide in RTF format
- Has been certified "blind friendly"
- Doesn't take up a lot of disk space (under 500K!)

Subject: [*] The Third Dimension v1.2

Corrected problem when switching applications.

The goal is to place three dimensional pieces so that they create
horizontal surfaces. As the pieces fall, you may move them left, right,
front, and back. You can also rotate them around the front, side, or top
axis. When you make a horizontal surface, it collapses and the cubes above
move down. You score each time a piece can fall no further, or you complete
a horizontal surface. The value will depend on the difficulty of the
settings your using.
The piece movements can be controlled by clicking Icons on the board, or
using the keyboard. You can use one or both methods during any game.
To aid in your visualization of the third dimension, the falling pieces
cast shadows on the walls and the floor. If a cube is between the falling
piece and the board surface, the shadow is cast on the cube. Shadows only
partially visible or invisible tell you where the cubes of the piece are in
the three dimensional view.
The number of cubes in a board may be changed in all three dimensions.
Higher levels of difficulty have the pieces drop faster, and more complex
pieces are added to the ones used.
The game will work on gray scale and color capable computers.

Webserver log analyser available on the internet.

Summary of WWWStat4Mac Features.

Fast. A typical file is processed at about 200 lines/second on a PowerMac
