Sometimes Newer Is Smarter Than New. 



It's hard keeping an office geared up with the latest 
technology. And, in a PC-friendly corporate world, it can be 
even harder trying to justify buying new Macs. So, when 
you finally get your Macs configured 
exactly right, the last thing you want 
to hear is that Apple is about to 
release even newer machines that 
are twice as fast as what you have. 

Not to worry. Newer Technology has the answer. 

The Newer Technology MAXpowr 63 processor upgrade 
card can make your current PowerMacs among the fastest 



desktop computers available, comparing extremely 
favorably with Apple's new G3 machines. Newer has cards 
for almost every PowerMac, including Power Computing 
and UMAX systems. There are also cards 
for several models of PowerBooks. 
MAXpowr G3 processor upgrade cards 
are easy to install, and can potentially 
save you thousands of dollars compared 
to buying whole new systems. So, fret not. Install some 
Newer Technology MAXpowr G3 processor upgrade cards, 
and breathe new life into your older Macs.

"By being easier to use than similar 
products and importing many file 
formats. Canvas is a good adjunct to . 
tools you may already own - or a 
wise initial investment." Infoworld 

"One look at Deneba Canvas' long list 
of features, and you'll see the great 
value stuffed in this single box. Canvas... 
has raised the bar of excellence for all

figuring out how that photo effect

Quark XPress®. You might be right, 
but we're sorry you think it's so com-

and easily. • And if you're not a

photo editing, precision drawing, 
and page layout in one program, in 
one document, at one time. You can 
even take Canvas to the web with 
Colada'", a free Java'"-based tool for 
Canvas. You get all the features you 
need to create everything from a cool 
logo to an eye-catching ad. Want 
proof? You're looking at it. • So be-

less hours learning each of them, get 
Canvas 5. • You won't be sorry.

EXPERIENCE PAYS OFF: THE 3X ZOOM. 

And we’ve had more than enough experience, 78 years 
to be exact, to make it all worthwhile. With an insis- 
tence on superior optics, an obsession with design 
and size, a never-ending search for the optimum 
in effortlessness as well as ergonomics, it’s little 
wonder that Olympus has pushed the 35mm envelope as 
far as we have. And now all that know-how and wizardry 
has been poured into our D-600L digital camera. Yes, it 
looks like a 35mm and feels like a 35mm. And often acts 
like one, too. 

The new 3x zoom lens is razor-sharp, seven 
element Olympus all glass aspherical, F2.8, 
autofocus, with macro. The equivalent 35mm 
zoom focal length: 36mm to 1 10mm. 

Some other distinctions: a mere 16.5 
ounces in weight; center weighted metering 
as well as spot metering for difficult hghting 
conditions; dioptric viewfinder correction; +/- 3 
step exposure correction; a four mode auto flash 
with red-eye reduction. 



MEGA PIXELS 

Mega is an understatement. The CCD resolution on the 
D-600L is an astounding 1.4 million pixels, creating 
images at 1280 x 1024 pixel resolutions. Speaking of 
images, the D-600L uses a high-quality progressive scan 
CCD that captures the entire image in a single pass. 
Meaning you get what you should get: the highest- 
quality film-like images without any annoying ghosting 
or color bias traits that often appear in competitive 
sensor technologies. 



THE DIGITAL CAMERA 
REDEFINED. 



Actual dimensions of the D-600L 
are 4.5" (w)x 3,25" (h)x 5.1" (d). 
So it’s easy to carry around. 



Your computer, 
our camera and 
bundled software. 
Now crop, enlarge, 
enhance, retouch, 
have fun. 





SHOOT TILL YOU DROP 

Shoot, shoot, shoot. There are absolutely no restrictions on the 
number of photos you capture with our camera. The removable 
4 megabyte SmartMedia™ card gives you up to 49 standard quality 
images. Simply download the images from the card to your 
computer by means of the serial cable or the optional PCMCIA 
and 3.5” floppy disk adapters. Or you can insert a new SmartMedia 
card anytime and keep on shooting. 

THE TTL IS VIP 

A Very Important Part. It’s a Through The Lens single lens reflex 
viewfinder so you’re shooting photos as if you were looking 
through a 35mm SLR camera. Crisp, exact, infinitely 
superior images can be expected. In addition, 
there’s a high definition LCD screen that 
you can use for reviewing, deleting or 
tagging images for printing. 

A DIRECT CONNECTION 
Finally, digital independence! Now 
you can connect the D-600L, or any 



Olympus digital camera, directly to our P-300 
Personal Photo Printer. In just minutes you’ll 
be able to print photo quality images directly fix>m 
the camera.

length of 50mm to 150mm and a resolution of 1024 x 768. 

Note: in the last year, Olympus digital cameras have won more 
awards than any other digital cameras. Journalists and industry 
experts are already hailing our new D-600L and D-500L as 
benchmarks in performance and design. 

Note: you can see for yourself how rich and sharp the images from 
our digital camera really are. Just visit us at www.olympus.com.

Apple execs suck the fun out of the Apple campus 



n some ways, it’s like going 
from the m^^cal land of Oz 
back to Kansas. After liv- 
ing in a Technicolor wonder- 
land complete with two- 
dimensional representations of 
arguably the company’s most sig- 
nificant contribution to the world of 
operating systems, the entire Apple 

campus seems to be waking up from 
its head-trauma-induced 
dream to find itself back in 
a sepia world. 

Hot on the heels of the 
NeXT acquisition a year and a 
half ago, we visited the NeXT 
offices in Redwood City to find 
out what the deal meant for 
the Mac. During that time, 
we got a glimpse into the stylish 
NeXT headquarters. Sleek, dark, and 
replete with edges, those offices were 
chic to a fault. And the bathrooms...well, we 
won’t go too far into that, except to say that 
they, too, fit in with the classy interior. 
Since coming to Apple, Jobs has bus- 
ied himself remaking the company’s 
image, trying to hold on to the best of 
the brand while jettisoning the out- 
dated and useless detritus of 20 
years of business. Apparently, that 
includes the familiar six-color logo and 
the icon garden, both hopelessly mired 
in the past. They’re just too darned fun, 
and we can’t have that! 

Being the Apple followers that we 
are, we’ve decided to follow suit. Starting 
immediately, the following changes will take 
place in the pages oiMacAddict: 

^ We will be moving to a black-and-white 
format to make a clean break with the 
gaudy colors of past issues. The logo will 
be a translucent gray we’re calling 
“Hail.” 



It is important that Apple 
remain a sometimes-goofy 
place for its talented 
employees to work and play. 



^ All occurrences of the words 
phat, frag, freakin' awe- 
some, tweak, kick ass, lus- 
cious, sexy, and drool are 
hereby banned. We will no 
longer use adjectives of any 
kind. The page space that they 
occupied cost the company 
too much money, 

^ Official editorial dress code will consist 
of black shirts (which was already our 
unofficial code, but we figured it should 
be official). More than three violations 
will result in mandatory turtlenecks and 
chinos for all. 

^ On the MacAddict Web site, only 
tones will be allowed, and the coloi 
be rotated on a strict three-day 
schedule. 

^ Max’s name will be changed to 
Waiter. Do not call him Walt. 

For the sarcasm-impaired, this 
is a joke. Unfortunately, what’s 
happening at Apple is not. Oh 
sure, the company has had back- 
to-back profitable quarters, the 
stock price is up, the product 
lines are amazingly cool (and 
cheap) , market share is climbing, 
and realistic (and awesome) system- 
software plans are in place, but the 
company seems to have lost its sense 
of humor. Now I’m not suggesting that 
Apple sacrifice these real — ^and des- 
perately needed — business accom- 
plishments for the sake of some fiber- 
glass sculptures, but it is important 
that Apple remain a sometimes-goofy 
place for its talented employees to 
work and play, a place where folks 
still create balls made 
from name tag stickers 
given to visitors. 

This sense of 
fun was what 
brought many 
of us to the 
Mac in the 
first place, 
and it’s im- 
portant that 
Apple under- 



12 MacADD/Cr AUG/1 998 



Stand that. Remember, this is the company 
that brought us Clarus (complete with offi- 
cial tech notes), Area 51 as a location in the 
Newton OS, and the infamous Sosumi system 
beep. This sense is still alive in such prod- 
ucts as the iMac, and the upcoming Allegro 
system software release is rumored to have a 
new i^pearance Manager, 
the sole purpose of 
which is to let users 
change how their Macs 
look. Let’s hope the 
somberness that has 
descended over certain parts

something bad was going to happen, but did 
he have to take away the sacred icons? Those 



icons are the very heart and soul of Apple,

Where’s Our 
10 Percent? 

While looking through the games available 
on one of your early CDs, I came across Star 
Fighters 1.01, which I liked, and I paid the 
shareware fee for it. Later, 1 received an 
email from the author of Star Fighters, 
Laurie Murphie, and soon we became good 
friends. We started a company called Fox- 
change Shareware. Fourteen months later, 
we have completed some impressive games: 
Star Fighters, Mr. Cat’s Quest, Bob versus 
the Aliens, Cave Dig, Street Rumble, and 
Blobs. We have had more people join our 
company and we have a bright future ahead. 
We are currently making several more 
games — Station Devastator, Bob versus the 
Aliens 2, Cave Fox 2001, Line Wars, and 
another not-yet-named game. And it all 
started when I found Star Fighters on the 
MacAddict CD. So I would just like to say 
that you have an excellent magazine, and 



keep up the excellent work. We sure 
will.

Heeere’s Maxie 

On a morbid note, on page 94 of 
the October 1997 issue of 
MacAddict, the Hot Tip starts out 
with “Yo ho ho and a bottle of 
redrum.” I noticed that “redrum” 
spelled backwards is “murder.” 
Considering what alcohol does to 
you, that sounds accurate. Or is it 
a subliminal message? Does it 
reflect a darker side of Max?

I was initially elated to see my letter published 
in my favorite mag, but my emotions quickly 
changed when I saw that you spelled my name 
Brando instead of Brandon. My immediate 
response was to sue for slander and for the 
defacing of private property; however, as I was 
dialing my lawyer, an epiphany hit me. I 
should be thanking you. You could have 
defaced my name (changing it to Bran4don) 
as you did that poor old Ch4ris guy’s, and 
made me and my reputation the object of pub- 
lic humiliation. Thank you.

C’mon, guys, get serious. This is the second 
review I’ve read that essentially says, 
“Microsoft Word 98 is so much better than 
Word 6, it must be phenomenal!” So it’s very 
good — lots of bells and whistles. However, it 
needs 11MB of RAM, 60MB to 70MB of hard 
disk space, and a 120MHz machine to

run — which excludes all first-generation ; 
Power PCs. And the cost — a mere $200 to i 
upgrade? For a guy like me who has sue- : 
cessfuUy avoided buying big-bucks apphea- j 
tions, it would mean an outlay of $400. For | 
a word processor? For $400 I can add a : 
whole barrel of RAM. For $400 I can get a 
couple of scanners, a new ink-jet printer, or 
four copies of Claris Works.

AltiVec, Vidi, Vici 

New chip technology better than MMX, Olestra 



S ure, it sounds like MMX, but it 
goes so much deeper: Motorola 
has announced plans to add a 
new execution module to 
upcoming PowerPC chips. This new mod- 
ule, called AltiVec, will speed up future 
PowerPC chips by crunching certain kinds 
of data structures. Like MMX, AltiVec will 
accelerate processes involving images, 
video, and speech processing; unhke MMX, 

AltiVec can also quicken other data- 
processing functions such as those used in 
Internet routers and IP telephony gateways. 

It works hke this: Most microprocessors 
these days have two execution units — an 
integer unit and a floating-point unit. (It was 
the lack of an FPU that crippled some Mac 
models — namely those with a 68LC040 
processor.) AltiVec adds a third execution 
unit — called a vector unit — to the PowerPC 
chip. This vector unit will be dedicated to 
processing certain types of information, giv- 
ing a speed boost of 2 to 30 times for cer- 
tain operations. 

A couple of factors make the AltiVec 
technology scream. First, the vector-execu- 
tion unit can perform up to 16 operations 
per clock cycle, and it can apply a single 
instruction to several different chunks of 
data, which essentially means that AltiVec 
chips can do several things at once. Also, the 
vector execution unit has a 128-bit data path 
that allows the chip to sling data around 
inside itself at amazing speeds. (Data access 

INIEUS-NEXT STEP 

D ue to some very hard work by talented engineers— and some mighty impressive cooling 
technology — Intel will have Its own answer to AltiVec. Code-named Katmai, the new Intel 
chip should be faster when it comes to certain multimedia functions such as video, 3D 
graphics, and speech recognition. As was the case with MMX, developers must support the 70 
new processor instructions present in Katmai to get the speed boost. The chip, which will run 
at around 500MHz, is due out during the first half of 1999 — about the same time the first AltiVec- 
based PowerPC chips should hit the market.— DH 



to and from the chip is 
still hmited to 32-bit 
widths). AltiVec 
will be great at 
doing data trans- 
lation, such as 
converting an 
MPEG-2 stream 
from a DVD 
player into a 
form that a dis- 
play can use. 

Such conversions 
should see up to a 
30-fold speed increase. 

All of this speed doesn’t 
come for free, though. Developers 
will have to rewrite their applications to take 
advantage of an AltiVec-enabled chip. This 
isn’t as bad as it sounds, however. First, 
when Apple rewrites parts of the Mac OS to 
take advantage of AltiVec, apphcations that 
use those parts of the Mac OS should get 
acceleration automatically. For example, if 
an application uses QuickTime, and Quick- 
Time has been updated for AltiVec, that 
apphcation should get a boost without a 
rewrite. Metrowerks has also pledged to 
include AltiVec instructions in its compilers, 
which means that it may take just a recom- 
pile by developers to produce an AltiVec- 
aware apphcation. 

Before you get your shorts in a bunch 
waiting for these new chips, relax: AltiVec- 




enabled processors won’t make it to the 
Macintosh until sometime in the first half of 
1999- At the Worldwide Developer Confer- 
ence in May, Apple announced that it will 
include AltiVec-enabled PowerPC chips in 
future Macs. — DR

Microsoft Deathwatch 




Prospects dim for beleaguered software maker 



T he following tidbits have been culled 
from actual recent news stories about 
Microsoft, and they have been given that 
special MacAddict spin. One might almost think 
from reading the following that Microsoft is 
headed for some serious trouble down the line. 
■ Computer makers are defecting: In a stunning 
blow to Microsoft’s Internet-domination strategy, 
both NEC and Gateway are preconfiguring PCs 
with Netscape Communicator instead of Microsoft 
Internet Explorer. These companies join ranks 
with Hewlett-Packard, Sony, and Fujitsu. 

■ Windows 98 sales are expected to be disap- 
pointing: A recent study from International Data 
Corporation says that sales of Windows 98, when 
it is released, may lag by as much as 35 percent 
■ In the ongoing s^a of antitrust fitigation, 
Microsoft is currently under fire from the U.S. 
Department of Justice and the attorneys general 
of 20 states for anticompetitive practices. U.S. 
district judge Thomas Penfield Jackson handed 



down a trial date of September 8 
for antitrust litigation, which is 
coming much faster than the 
wretched software giant would 
have preferred. Microsoft dodged 
a potentially fatal bullet in this rul- 
ing when the government chose 
not to seek to block Windows 98 
sales during that time. 

■ In a delay of Microsoft’s flagship 
products, Office 98 — its premier 
business software — shipped first 
for the rival Macintosh platform, 
with the Windows version still in 
development. This is a surprise, considering that 
Microsoft develops both versions. Some analysts 
claim this delay points to a reluctance to support 
the Windows platform with vital software titles. 

■ Microsoft suffered a 15 percent drop in 
stock price: After peaking at nearly 100 in late 
April, the troubled company is trading at 



around 85 per share. The Standard & Poor’s 
500 has outperformed Microsoft stock over the 
last three months. 

With news stories like this, it’s a wonder 
Microsoft still enjoys a warm spot in the hearts 
of computer users. Oh, wait — I’m sorry. I was 
thinking of Apple . — DR

Get Email @mac-addict 



N ow you can rub In your 
Mac partisanship. With 
our parent company’s 
newest Web-based email service, 
you can use one of our custom 
pro-Mac domain names for your 
very own free email account. 
(You can also choose domain 
names related to some of Imag- 
ine Media’s other outlets — Busi- 
ness 2.0, boot, or Imagine

that when you can have a 
MacAddict email address?) 

Show your true Mac colors —

So what’s the catch? There 
are a couple. First, the service 
needs to set cookies on your

have cookies disabled, you may 
not be able to use an Imagine

vice is entirely supported by 
advertising, so you’ll see an ad in 
a browser frame while you 
access your email. Third, you’ll 
also need a JavaScript-capable

nonframes version is available, 
which you can use if you live

The Shape’s the Thing 

No longer will Mac addicts bleed in six colors 




o much for the rainbow-colored Apple. 
Saying that the multihued look was a bit 
passe, Steve 



Jobs In a recent inter- 
view hinted that the 
six-color Apple logo is 
on the way out, to be 
replaced by mono- 
chrome Apple logos 
bearing the same 
shape. 

Apple spokes- 
woman Rona Hamil- 
ton confirmed that the 
company is moving 
away from its six- 



colored past. “We’re trying to focus on the 
shape,” she said. “That’s what we think is the 
Identifying item.” 

A monochrome mark isn’t 
necessarily a new thing for 
Apple. Depending on the situ- 
ation, the logo has previously 
been rendered in solid black, 
red, or white. On new prod- 
ucts, we’ll see more of the 
same type of treatment 
we’ve seen on the new 
PowerBook G3 line, with its 
two-inch ice-white crystal logo, 
or on the iMac, with its similar- 
ly styled Bondi Blue logo . — DR

Kaleidoscope 2.0 

The world’s favorite window hack goes public beta 





O h sure, we promised this to you a 
couple of months ago, but due to 
circumstances beyond our con- 
trol (and a bout of intense weekend 
therapy), we’ve been unable to get our 
K2 preview out — ^until now. On May 28, 
the good folks who make Kaleidoscope 
released a public beta of the amazing 
Kaleidoscope 2.0. 



What’s New in K2 

• New control panel with new options 

• New windowing engine that allows for fea- 
tures such as irregular window shapes 

• Menus that look much better and are 
more detailed 



CHECK OUT THE IRREGULAR window shape. This Isn’t an easy 
trick to pull off, but Kaleidoscope does it with grace — and all of 
the controls even work properly!

Ever Wish You Could Get 
Back a Project You Lost? 

You Can. 



Aladdin FlashBack gives you instant 
access to all your previous versions. 






FlashBack your work 
and you’re protected. 

Protected against loss by 
accidental deletion, file corrup- 
tion, even from hitting the save 
key and overwriting your file. 
Aladdin FlashBack is a whole 
new way to protect your files. 

With FlashBack you can recover 
not only lost or damaged files, but 
even previous versions of files that 
you changed, even if you made 
the changes months ago. 



Unlimited undos 

Discover the power and time 
savings of unlimited undos. 

FlashBack tracks changes 
made to a file every time you hit 
Save. Recover from changes 
even after you’ve quit your 
application, turned 
your computer 
off and gone 
home. If you ever 
saved a FlashBacked file, you 
can recover it exactly as it was at that time. 



Awholenewwaytoproi 



or easier. Plus, FlashBack works 
equally well with both local and 
networked files. 

Save Disk Space 

Keep multiple versions of your 
important files without gobbling up 
disk space. FlashBack makes 
only one complete copy of your 
file. Previous versions are tracked 
through tiny “diff’ flies containing 
only the changes, or differences, 
between one version and the 
next. The result? You can save 
five, ten, twenty or more versions 
of a file in less room than you 
would use hitting ‘Save as’ just a 
couple of times! 



Time & Date Stamping 

FlashBack time and date stamps 
each version it saves, making it 
the organized alternative to clut- 
tering up your folders with crypti- 
cally named ‘Save as’ files! 

It’s a new level of protection. Beyond back- 
up. Beyond file recovery. FlashBack gives you a whole new way to 
protect your files and save your sanity. 






Works on any file 

If your application saves files, FlashBack will protect you. From 
word processors to graphics programs, from databases to spread- 
sheets, from HTML to C++. 

Instant file recovery 

Restore any file you’ve protected just by double clicking. No con- 
fusing procedures, no complex operations. It doesn’t get any faster

Wrong. In order to qualify as a card-carrying 
Mac addict, you need to be armed with more than just a 
collection of clever phrases and cute puns. You’ve got to 
know the Mac cold, cruise the Finder like a locked missile, 
tweak your software until it screams, and keep your hard- 
ware humming smoothly. 

No longer so certain of your Mac addict status? We’ll 
show you how to coax the most from your Mac with top- 
notch tips culled from our first ever MacAddict Tip-Off. 



As a service to you, our readers, we pulled together a 
group of seasoned Mac pros, gave them a case of Moun- 
tain Dew and a crisp fiver (each!), and challenged them

MOUSE-FREE 



FINDER 



PRACTICE MAKES 

PERFECT 



If it’s speed you’re after, quit 
mousing around your Finder 
and let your fingers do the walk- 
ing. We double-dog dare you to 
run your Mac all day without 
touching the mouse. Sure, it’s a 
snap in an application like 
Microsoft Word, where you can 
perform every action — even 
menu selections — from the key- 
board, But by making use of lit- 
tle-known key combinations, 
you can actually do a serious 
amount of work in the Finder, 
too, without ever lifting a fin- 
ger... off the keys, that is. So lose 
the mouse, limber up your dig- 
its, and show that Finder exactly 
who’s boss. 



Now that you’ve got down 
the moves, it’s time to put 
them to the test. These are 
great sets of keyboard com- 
mand combinations that will 
be sure to speed up your 
work. Remember, you can 
often type these really fast In 
succession— bang, bang, 
bang — without waiting for the 
actions to catch up with you.

I ADD EXTENSIONS ONE AT A 




TIME: Don’t just dump the 30- 
item “Uncle Bill’s Deep-Fried 
Extension Pack” into your Sys- 
tem Folder all at once. Drop 
each greasy morsel in one at a 
time, restart, and see if there 
are any problems. If not, drop 
the next one in, and so on. 

■ INVEST IN EXTENSION SOFT- 
WARE: Although the Extensions 
manager that ships with the Mac 
OS is good, it doesn’t do every- 
thing. Our favorite is Casady & 
Greene’s Conflict Catcher 4.1.1. 
It not only handles extensions, it 
checks for conflicts and can be 
used to manage such items as 
Photoshop plug-ins and contex- 
tual menu items. 




■ COLOR DEPTH: Set this to 
256 colors (8-bit color) to 
speed up the Finder, which has 
to convert everything it draws to 
256 colors anyway. Make life 
easier for your Finder. 

■ DON’T USE A DESKTOP PIC- 
TURE: The desktop picture 
sucks up RAM and processor 
cycles, so unless you’re really 
stuck on the picture, get rid of it. 




■ DON’T OVERDO IT: Each 
font takes up memory, and the 
Finder (and other applications) 
have to keep track of each font. 
Remember, the limit is 128 
fonts in your Fonts folder. 

■ CHOOSE OR LOSE: For sani- 
ty’s sake (and your printer’s), 
pick either PostScript or True- 
Type versions of your fonts, and 
stick to that format. Having both 
types of a font can be confosing. 

■ use a FONT MANAGEMENT 
UTILITY: ATM and FontReserve 
come to mind. These utilities 
allow you to swap fonts in and 
out on the fly, making sure your 
type is at hand without getting in 
the way.

EBUILD 



I Want to rebuild your desktop completely with the 
I supersecret Stickles trick? Try Buz Zoller’s technique: 
Open Stickles, type a little text Into an empty Sticky, and 
choose Export Text from the File menu. Save the file at 
your hard drive’s root and name it desktop db. Your Mac 
should ask you if you want to replace the current desktop 
db. Click Replace. Quit Stickles and trash the desktop db 
text file at your hard drive’s root level. Restart your Mac, 
and It will do a complete rebuild of your desktop, a la 
TechTool. Or you could just use TechTool to do the same 
desktop rebuild (we’ve put TechTool on The Disc).

task, but it is an important part 
of any maintenance routine. 
Hold down the Command and 
Option keys while the Finder is 
starting up, and you will be 
asked if you want to rebuild the 
desktop. Go ahead and do it, but 
remember to start up with exten- 
sions off for the best rebuild. 

■ SET A START-UP DISK: If 
your Mac doesn’t have a start-

So you say this isn’t useful, huh? Well, what if you once 
made a file invisible {to hide it from certain prying eyes) and 
you want to find it, but you can’t remember what you called 
it or where It is? All you remember is that the words vorpal 
rabbit are somewhere in the file. What do you do? Why, 
take advantage of Find File’s secret features, of course.

grams with the grace of a socialite at a debutante ball. If you don’t feel quite with an all-purpose how-to that uses three programs at once. 




1 Starting in your vector program (Illustrator 
or FreeHand), open a logo or convert text 
Into paths. Duplicate the logo. Then scale and 
skew the duplicate so it looks like a 



large shadow. (If you 
are in FreeHand, use 
the 3D Rotation tool 
to give the logo per- 
spective.) 






2 Cut the large shadow, and then open a 
new Photoshop file. The file will be the 
size of the copied 
image. Set this 
new document to 
be slightly larger at 
a resolution of 150 
pixels per inch in 
gray-scale mode.

image.

log box one-third its width, just 
make the width field read 4V3 
and press Return. You can even 
mix math: To make a 4-inch 
box one-third the size and then 
add 24 points, you would enter 
the equation 4V3+24pt and 
press Return. 

■increase line WEIGHT: 
Command-Option-Shift- > 
(greater-than sign) increases 
the stroke weight of a line. 
Command-Option-Shift-< (less- 
than sign) decreases it. 



■AVOID EXTRA CHARACTERS: 
Instead of using the space bar 
to make line spaces, use para- 
graph formatting. Also, extra 
paragraph returns add to the 
file size and processing time. 
■TEXT BOXES WITH BACK- 
GROUND NONE: Unless you 
need Background None for a 
special effect, keep the back- 
ground color as 0% Black. It 
takes more time to process a 
file with Background None. 

■ ROTATING AND SCALING 
PLACED IMAGES: Avoid doing 
transformations such as rota- 
tions and scaling in the page- 
layout program. Instead, go 
back to the original problem 
figure and do the 
transformation there. 
■SAVE AS TIFFS: Do 



this instead of saving files as 
EPS with clipping paths — both 
PageMaker 6,5 and Quark- 
XPress 4 can read the clipping 
paths in Photoshop documents 
saved as TIFF files. This allows 
you to reduce file size. 
■general STRETCHING EXER- 
CISES: Dragging and dropping 
between documents usually 
bypasses the contents of the

important when you’re working

want to waste your time copying 
and pasting.

DO’S AND DON’TS 

■ Do buy a dark-colored 
monitor rather than a beige 
box because they offer better 
contrast with the screen. Dark 
borders around a monitor 
screen provide the visual effect 
of a brighter, sharper display, 
and dark plastic won’t yellow 
with time the way light-colored 
plastic will. 

■ Do use a monitor hood to 
maintain consistent screen 
color. Light changes in most 
rooms as the day wears on and 
as electrical lights fluctuate. 
These subtle changes in light- 
ing can affect how you per- 
ceive the colors on the moni- 
tor. Slapping a hood on your 
monitor reduces the impact of 
these fluctuations for a more 
stable color appearance. 

■ Do use your CD-ROM’s 
built-in volume control to lis- 
ten to music. If you pop the 
faceplate off your CD-ROM 
drive, you should find its 
native volume control dial and 
headphone jack. From the 
Monitors and Sound control 
panel, select None for the 
sound-monitoring source. 
This makes your CD sound 
independent from your com- 
puter’s sound. Plug a pair of 
headphones directly into the 
CD-ROM drive and vary the 
volume of music while your 
computer chirps away at its 
own set amplitude. 

■ Do buy lots of RAM. RAM is 
your best friend. Figure out 
how much you can possibly 
afford, and install slightly 
more. Things will crash less, 
technologies you thought were 
hoaxes (including, say, Real- 
Audio) will work, and some 
applications will speed up. 

■ Don’t plug and unplug 
devices while your Mac is run- 
ning. The Mac maintains a 
steady flow of current through 
most of its ports, so to avoid 
shorting things out, always shut 
down before connecting or dis- 



connecting a keyboard, mouse, 
or other cool hardware add- 
on... unless you have an iMac. 
The iMac replaced SCSI and 
ADB with USB, which is hot- 
pluggable, meaning you can 
connect USB devices without 
restarting your machine. SCSI 
and ADB both require you to 
shut down your Mac. 

■ Do deploy a RAID (Redun- 
dant Array of Independent 
Disks) . If you own two or more 
large hard disks, stripe them 
into a RAID. You can do this 
with software from companies 
such as Optima Technology or 
Adaptec. Your computer will 
see the hard disks as one and 
write to them simultaneously, 
greatly speeding up throughput. 

TROUBLESHOOTING 

■ If your Mac crashes or acts 
weird for no apparent reason, 
odds are your Parameter RAM 
has turned to the dark side. 
When you can’t remember the 
key commands required to zap 
your PRAM back to the right 
side of the force, just think 
copper — a handy mnemonic 
device that stands for Control- 
Option-P-R. Hold down these 
magic keys while rebooting, 
until you hear the Mac’s start- 
up chime five times. 

■ If your hard drive or your 
CD-ROM drive mysteriously 
disappears from your Mac’s 
awareness, you might want to 
check to make sure that your 
internal ribbon cables are still 
connected. Some Macs get a 
lot of shaking from fans, CD- 
ROM drives, and hard disks, 
all of which can unseat an 
internal drive chain. 

■ a bad motherboard battery 
creates a constant state of con- 
fusion (kind of like Alzhei- 
mer’s for the PRAM) and 
could cause your Mac to start 
up sometimes but not other 
times. If this sounds like your 
situation, try replacing your 
motherboard battery. 



■ Don’t use common electri- 
cal devices to clean out your 
Mac. You may think that you’re 
being clever when you use a 
dust buster or hair drier to 
blow out dust bunnies, but 
you’re building up a whole 
bunch of static electricity 
around components that don’t 
like static electricity. Use either 
compressed air or a special 
vacuum designed to clean elec- 
trical components. 

■ To fix SCSI problems, buy a 
SCSI Sentry. APS Technologies 
(http://www.apstech.com) 
sells a great device that will 
make your SCSI problems go 
away. The SCSI Sentry and the 
the SCSI Sentry II monitor 
your SCSI chain and fix errors 
as they occur. 

■ Make sure you assign dif- 
ferent devices in a SCSI chain 
different numbers. Assigning 
two the same number is a sure 
way to halt your computer’s 
functionality and possibly even 
corrupt data. 

■ if you have two Etliemet- 
capable Macs and would 
rather play networked, full- 
screen Marathon than share a 
printer, buy an Ethernet 
cross-over cable. You can get 
one for about five bucks at an 
electronics store, and it will 
give you Ethernet network 
speed ^vithout the expense of 
a hub. 

■ if your hardware-expan- 
sion plans mean that you will 
have to buy external hard 
drives, Iomega drives, and 
CD-Rs because you don’t have 
any free ports in your Mac, 
save your money. Instead, 
invest in an empty PC case and 
internal SCSI devices (which 
are much cheaper) and build 
your own SCSI device case. PC 
boxes, which come complete 
with a power supply and slots 
for SCSI devices, cost around 
$65. Just buy an internal SCSI 
ribbon and an internal-to- 
external port converter and 
start saving. 




AHEAD 



If you need extra processor 
speed and crave danger, the 
mother of all bad ideas may 
be just the ticket for you. On 
every Mac (and every comput- 
er) is a clock chip that tells the 
machine how fast to go. Tell 
the clock to tick faster and the 
whole machine speeds up. 

So why not crank a mere 
33MHz machine up to, say, 
700,000 MHz? First of all, it 
would glow white-hot and 
suck the electricity out of every 
building in a three-county 
radius. Second, not all chips 
run well at high speeds. Or 
sometimes they run fast for a 
while, only to crash with bus 
errors. If you buy a clock-chip 
accelerator and see strange 
crashes and bus errors right 
after installation, pull the chip 
and send it back for a refund. 

Clock chipping is not for 
the weak of heart, but if you 
need the speed and have no 
other alternatives you should 
check out Output Enabler at 
(http://www.io.com/'-oe/ 
Products.html). A snap-on 
accelerator kit will cost you 
from $10 to $80.

through. Sample 
Editor lets you 
cut and paste different sounds 
together, Me a sound in and

HOW

COHVOLVE SOUND 

SOUNDHAGK 



Most people spend an entire lifetime without experiencing 
the slightest desire to convolve two sounds. Then there are 
those who, having learned such a process exists, never find 
true happiness until the convolving engine is humming reas- 
suringly beneath their fingers. For those of you who fall into 
the latter category, the road to nirvana follows. 



STEP ONE: SOUND ONE 

After downloading, install- 
ing, and launching Sound- 
Hack, go to the File menu 
and open an AIFF sound 
file or import an SND file. 
Alternatively, the File menu 
opens a record dialog with 
which you can record a

STEP TWO; SOUND TWO 

Find a second AIFF file on your disk, or record and save a 
new one. Keep this file closed. 



STEP THREE: HACK 

With your first file open, go to the Hack menu and choose 
Convolution; you’ll see a dialog with several parameters. 
Leave Gain at 42dB, choose any value you want from the 
Windo button, check Ring Modulate, and click Pick Impulse. 



STEP FOUR: CONVOLVE 

In the scrolling dialog, open 
the second AIFF you chose 
earlier, then click Process in 
the Convolve panel. 



What happens is that 
SoundHack multiplies the 
frequency spectra of the 
two files in such a way that it 
reinforces frequencies com- 
mon to both, synthesizing a 
new sound file. You pretty 
much have to hear the 
results to get a sense of

how this sounds, but if you listen to anything from The X Files 
to Star Trek, you’ll recognize the general effect: a weird, 
robotic, metallic, distorted mix of the two sounds. It may take 
a little experimenting (and it’s a really good idea to read the 
manual), but when you’re done you'll have a unique candi- 
date for a new system sound. And as a bonus, turning a 
mono sound into stereo with SoundHack’s Binaural filter will 
be a conceptual snap.

HOW TO SET UP A PERSONAL WEB SERVER 



In the very first issue of MacAddict, we 
showed you how to set up a tiny area net- 
work, or TAN (http://www.macaddict 
.conrr/issues) for file sharing among the 
desktop Macs and PowerBooks around 
your house. If your TAN is up and run- 
ning, you can convert it to a home 
intranet — essentially a mini Internet on 
your local network — and then use 
Apple’s Personal Web Sharing to share 
documents with other computers on the 
network. 

OS 8 installs Personal Web Sharing 
by default, but you’ll want to download 
the latest version (1 .5) from Apple’s FTP 
site (ftp://ftp .info.apple.com/Apple_Sup- 
port_Area/Apple_SW_Updates/US/Mac- 
intosh/Networking-Communications/Per- 
sonal_Web_Sharlng). Open Transport 
1 .1 .1 or later is required. 

PART ONE; SEniNG UP THE SERVER 

The Mac that shares documents with 
other networked computers is the server. 
Any Mac on your network can be the 
server, although you’ll probably want to 
use a desktop Mac that’s always on. 
(You’ll still be able to use the server Mac 
for other purposes; you just won’t be able 
to log onto the Internet without first dis- 
connecting It from the Intranet and 
switching to PPP.) 

STEPl Open the Chooser and check to 
make sure AppleTalk is active. Then open 
the TCP/IP control panel and press Com- 
mand-K for Configurations. Duplicate an

tion— Connect Via AppleTalk (MaclP), 
Configure Using MaclP Manually, and set 
your IP address to 192.168.1.1. Leave the 
other settings blank. 

■ Skip to Step 5 if you want every Mac on 
the network to have read-only access 
to your shared folder. 

■ Continue to Step 2 if you want more 



control over access, such as the ability 
to exclude some users or to allow 
selected others to download files. 

STEP 2 To control access to the shared 
folder, use AppleTalk file sharing and set

HOW TO SHARE A HOME NETWORK (AND WE DON’T MEAN ABC, CBS, NBC, OR FOX) 

So you have two Macs, two gamers in the house, and two copies of Myth: The Fallen Lords. Problem is, both gamers want to play on Bungie.net at 
the same time, but you have one modem and one ISP account. Solution: Set up a home network that uses Vicom’s SurfDoubler to share the modem. 



1 SET UP AN APPLETALK 
NETWORK. You need 
Ethernet instead of Local- 
Talk to increase network 
bandwidth. For this, you 
can either use our cross- 
over hardware cheat, or set up a network using 
a hub. Check out our Nov/97 issue for the arti- 
cle, “Hook Up Your Macs with Superfast Ether- 
net,” which explains exactly how to do this. 



2 INSTALL VICOM SURF- 
DOUBLER. Buying it will 
set you back $99 (http:// 
www.vicomtech.com) . 

Vicom’s technology works 
by setting up one Mac as a 
software router. This Mac communicates with 
your ISP and then routes Internet packets to both 
Macs. Plus, it’s cheaper than setting up an extra 
Internet account. 



3 DUKE IT OUT! Since 
SurfDoubler is script- 
able, you can write a script 
that launches the app, con- 
nects to the Internet, then 
launches Myth. With this 
setup, the client Mac will not be able to host, but 5 
the Mac that’s running SurfDoubler can. Log on = 
to Bungie.net with both accounts and go into an | 
unranked room to test out the connection. ^ 



BASIC BATTLE PUNS 

■when remapping the controls 
for a game, remember the limi- 
tations of the keyboard. Most 
keys can only send events one at 
a time, so you can’t have more 
than one key pressed and have 
the program react to each key. 
The Shift, Control, Option, and 
Command keys, though, can 
send signals when other keys 
are down. Use these keys if you 
want to be able to shoot and 
bomb at the same time. 

■With any game, try to grok 
the patterns of its various 
actions. Once you understand 
the pattern a game uses to do 
things, such as control enemy 
movement, you’ll be able to 
solve its puzzles more easily, 
■if you’re a flight sim fanatic, 
you need to buy a joystick. 
Optionally, add a throttle to 
your setup. 

■Read all kinds of ancient 
myths — Roman, Greek, Nordic, 
Celtic, Eastern — to catch refer- 
ences and possible solutions in 
games. 

■Don’t beheve that the “3D 
acceleration” inside the Power 
Macintosh G3 will make your 
games play any faster. The chip 
inside is a generation behind 
the current standards available 
in TechWorks’ Power3D card, 
ATI’s XClaim VR, or Village- 
Tronic’s 3D Overdrive. Do not 
waste your money upgrading 
the video memory in these 



machines. Instead, just buy a 
better video card. 

■To get the absolute cheapest 
3D acceleration on the market, 
buy TechWorks’ PC version of 
the Power3D (for about 
$150), then download the Mac 
drivers from the TechWorks 
Web site. Don’t pirate Tech- 
Works’ hard work by buying a 
card from a competitor. 

■if you have a slower Mac, 
run action games at, a smaller 
resolution. 

■in driving games, brake 
going into turns and accelerate 
out of them. 

■Get a Thrustmaster steering 
wheel to complete the driving 
sim experience. 

■if you get stuck in a game, 
don’t be afraid to get up, turn 
off your Mac, and go outside — 
you know... the place with that 
bright shiny thing called the 
sun. Clearing your head or just 
doing something else can often 
give your subconscious the time 
necessary to come up with a 
solution. Then, in an hour or 
so, or even after sleep, you’ll be 
able to solve that last puzzle or 
find the secret door. 
■Subscribe to the six or so 
Mac game newsgroups (which 
start with comp.sys.mac.games) 
to get more hints on games or 
to ask questions. There are 
often game-specific news- 
groups as well. 

■Read Mac Gamer’s Ledge 
(http://www.macledge.com) , 



Tikkabik (http://www.tikkabik 
.com), and Inside Mac Games 
(http://www.imgmagazine. com) 
for excellent Mac games 
reporting.

STRATEGY 

■in the Sons of Myrgard Myth 
level, explore all caves to find 
an entrance to a secret level. 



If you want to find the secret 
cave by yourself, don’t look at 
the map in the upper right cor- 
ner— oops, too late. 

■when fighting with light 



units in Myth, target opponents 
properly. Don’t waste warriors 
fighting thrall, or chase 
archers with thrall. Instead, try 
to foul up enemy warriors in 
your own thrall, and quickly 
eliminate archers with ghol 
and warriors. Targeting wights 
with thrall is a great ehmina- 
tion tactic. 

■in Master of Orion n, don’t 
bomb all of a planet’s inhabitants 
away. Instead, convert them to 
happy workers for extra points. 



In Civilization II, explore your sur- 
roundings early — especially vil- 
lages— so you can earn civiliza- 
tion advances, settlers, military 
units, and gold. These will give 
you an advantage over other civi- 
lizations later. 










A DAILY JOGGING ROUTINE BUILDS UP 
STAMINA VITAL IN MARATHON. 



ADVENTURE 

■in Sierra’s Rama, the whole 
Rama universe has a repeating 
pattern involving the number 
three. Trying to find patterns 
involving the number two or 
four would be findtless. 

■in adventure games, look for 
parts of the picture that don’t 
quite blend to discover impor- 
tant clues or puzzles. 

■Set up advantageous trade 
routes with hired cargo ships in 
Escape Velocity to jump right 
from a Scout to a Kestrel. 
■Chck on everything and any- 
thing and whatever’s next to 
that. 

■Bad Mojo has lots of Easter 
eggs hidden throughout each 
room. Explore far away from 
the actual puzzles with your 
cockroach to find them. 

■just because Myst elegantly 
integrates the reading of books 
into gameplay doesn’t mean you 
have to read every piece of jour- 
nal drivel written in an adven- 
ture game. Most of them are 
me-too copiers, and you can 
skip right to the drawings for 
any needed clues. 

PUZZLES 

■in block puzzles such as 
MacSokoban or Blobbo, don’t 
push blocks into comers unless 
you absolutely know that you 
won’t need to move them again. 
Try not to push them up against 
walls, either. 




IN APEIRON (or Centipede), 
don’t clear away too many 
mushrooms from the bottom, or 
you’ll get bombed. 



■in arcade puzzlers such as 
Chiral, Tetris, or Troubled 
Souls, puzzle pieces fall at an 
ever-increasing rate. Train 
yourself for speed at lower lev- 
els to succeed at the higher | 
levels. 

SHOOTERS 

■in a shooter, figure out which I 
action you’d want to have happen 
for a length of time, such as run- 
ning or autofiring. Map that 
action to the Caps Lock key, so 
you don’t have to press and hold 
down one key for an extended | 
period. 

■in early arcade games such as I 
Space Invaders, the swarms of 
aliens fly in a predictable forma- 
tion. Learn the formations to kill | 
the enemies without taking a hit. 
■Arcade gamers should buy an I 
external controller such as 
Gravis’s GamePad or MacAlly’s | 
Batwing. 

■Don’t play 
Rob Capps in 
multiplayer 
Marathon. He’ll 
beat you every 
time. 

■You can skip the entire last I 
level of the original Marathon by 
using the triple-shield generator 
and picking up rockets at the 
entrance, then shooting the 
rockets at the ground (from the 
right spot, of course). This pro- 
pels you up to the teleport plat- 1 
form. 

■Enter SMITE in Shattered I 
Steel’s console to smite your | 
current target. 

ROLE-PLAYl 

■in role-playing games such as 
Exile, increase the skills of aS 
members of your troop. A level 
one cleric may not do much, but | 
you’ll love his level 12 healing. 
■You can sneak past mutants I 
easily in Fallout if you’re not | 
tough enough to fight them yet. 
■in Heroes of Might and Magic | 
H, press 911 to finish the level.

SUBVERTa PC USER

At last! A shortcut to subverting PC users 

ANYTIME, ANYWHERE. 

Absolutely GUARANTEED! Works In minutes, 
completely UNDETECTABLE, ODOR-FREE, 
AND SEMILEGAL! 



Evepyme Has Expsriencsil Natural Sabliniinal Inlliience 



Have you ever noticed how one Mend will 
buy a PC and then, before you know it, others 
start buying PCs, too? Sure you have, Heck, every- 
one has. Do those people really want a Wintel 
machine? Or were they fooled into thinking they 
wanted one? Probably, they did want a computer. 
They bought a PC, however, as a triggered 
response. Marketing gimmicks persuade people 
to buy things they don’t want every day. 

A television commercial showing dancing 
bunny men can trigger a response in your brain 
that makes you think you want a computer with a 



Pentium processor. Sometimes you’ll even reach 
for your wallet as if to buy one right then and there 
from the comfort of your La-Z-Boy.™ Why? The 
dancing bunny men are not really there and you 
don’t really want a computer with a Pentium 
processor, but a natural desire lying dormant 
in your brain to own a computer 
has been stimulated by elec- 
tron images on your television 
screen. Your body is seduced 
into feeling certain ways by 
means such as this every day.

Does Artificial Subliminal Mooil-Altering Technology Really Work? 



Yes and no. Many of the products sold via subliminal influence in 
years past have been mere hoaxes at best. Some were downright 
scams. Wifli modem digital technology and impressive-sounding 
encryption methods, there is now a way to vastly improve the means 
of conveying subliminal mess^es. MacAMict 
has taken this mysterious technology and adapt- 
ed it for these very special resistance tapes. 

Thanks to exciting technological advance- 
ments made possible by Apple’s Subliminal 
Developer Relations program, we have ^c- 
- ceeded in reproducing Steve Jobs’s power- 







fill reality-distortion field and distilling it into virtually inaudible 
audio tracks. We then mix these subfiminally subversive recordings 
with tacky music that you wouldn’t even hear in your local Kmart. 
And because of hidden “previously unmarketed” capabilities of 
Apple’s own QuickTime 3.0, it is now possible to bring the thought- 
altering message tracks much closer to the threshold of conscious 
recognition while still keeping them completely undetectable to the 
unsuspecting PC user. These revolutionary methods, which were 
not technically possible even 10 years 2 ^ 0 , have been subfiminally 
credited by many computer journafiste as the real secret to Apple’s 
amazing turnaround.

Most PC Users Have Repressed Desires to Own a Maci 



Most PC users will admit that they would love to use a comput- 
er that didn’t require constant maintenance, frustrating repairs, 
and cumbersome installs, but they refrain from going Mac because 
of social pressures. PC users who say no to Macs often really want 
to say yes, but they repress their natural appetites for Apple’s 
machines because of peer pressurel “What would my boss think? 
Every idiot I know uses Windows.” 

Who knows how many millions of Macs have never been sold 



because PC users think their 
computer should be “hard « 
to use;^’ when they really m 
want just the opposite? 

Apple resellers get tired of being asked to 
“compete with Microsoft,’’ suffer from low sales, and eventu- 
ally get cut off by Apple. Sadly, in this way both PC users and Mac 
users end up cheated out of their chances for happiness. 






What Are the Limits of Suhiiminai Influence? 



For years people have been promoting the idea of using 
subliminal thought control to assist in eliminating PC 
users, but this has been found to be an unrealistic goal. It 
will never be possible to get rid of PC use entirely. Using 
negative subliminal influence to turn people away from 
Microsoft products is a waste of time, as the company has 
been basting the market with its own brand of thought con- 



trol since the mid-1980s. This situation is about to 
change, however, as a new antitrust suit brought 
against Microsoft by our fearless government 
attempts to bar the company from subliminally forc- 
ing computer makers to use the Microsoft subliminal 
marketing messages that it ships free as a hidden fea- 
ture of the Windows operating system. 






How Do I Know the Hidden Message Tracks Are Really There? 









With each cassette recording purchased, you also receive a second 
dummy” tape at no extra charge! This free sampler tape uses 
“reverse” technology to bring the subliminal messages 
to the forefront so you can hear the otherwise sub- 
liminal subversive murmurings that will leave

T he Blackbird, Apple’s 500-series PowerBook, made headlines even 
before it hit the streets. Based on a 68040 processor, it broke records 
by being the first portable computer stocked with a built-in trackpad, 
stereo speakers, Ethernet, and intelligent batteries. The Blackbird also was the 
first PowerBook with an upgradable CPU, an expansion bay, and two battery 
slots. Jammed with gadgets and stylin’ in a curvacious, techno-matte black 
case, it was painfully cool. 

A balance of good looks, desktop power, and portable convenience, the 

500 series was designed to do everything 
a desktop machine could do, but at a 
fraction of the size — big news in 1994. 
The good news now is that as long as 
you don’t use really big applications, the 
Blackbird still does everything a desktop 
model can. Mac OS 8.1 works great. 
Microsoft Office 4.2.1, no problem. 
Microsoft Office 98, no way, not without a 
PowerPC upgrade. But before we get all 
excited about rocking the night away with 
an Excel spreadsheet, let’s take a look at 
what we have here.

I 



What You Have to Work 




The 520 and 540 are 
twins except for two traits: 
display and CPU. The 520 
has a passive matrix LCD 
display and a 25MHz 
68LC040 processor (no floating-point unit). 
The 540 has an active matrix LCD display and 
a 33MHz 68LC040 — ^faster, but still no FPU. 
(See the section on displays for details.) First, 
let's talk processors. 



The CPU 

You can do a lot to bring the 500 up to speed. 
One simple fix involves faking out your Mac to 
make it think it has an FPU. If you need to 
perform big spreadsheet calculations or Bryce 
rendering, John Neil’s SoftwareFPU performs 
the requisite math in software instead of hard- 
ware. Horribly slow compared with the action 
of a real FPU, this trick is best reserved for 
emergencies. If you have an application you 
must run and it must have an FPU, download 
SoftwareFPU from ftp://ftp.digital.com/pub/ 
plan/oberon/Macn/SoftFPU301.hqx or ftp:// 
ftp.wustl.edu/languages/oberon/OberonV4/ 
MacIl/SoftFPU301.hqx. 

On a different tack, if you’re willing to 
spend a ton of money to keep your Power- 
Book alive, you can upgrade your 520 with a 
540 daughtercard. A 520 runs at 25MHz, but 
a 540 chugs along a little faster at 33MHz, so 
if you can find a 540 daughtercard, you’re 
buying a 25 percent speed boost...for several 
hundred dollars. 



Accelerator Boards 

A 68040-based Mac still pulls its weight in 
today’s PowerPC world, but if an 040’s just 
not enough, dig up a NUpowr upgrade. 
Newer Technology made a series of cards 
that’ll bump you up to a 603-based PowerPC 
running as fast as 187MHz — ^faster than a 
PowerBook 1400. 

Unfortunately, Newer no longer produces 
the board, which makes finding one more of 
a search-and-rescue mission than a simple 
shopping trip. Prices vary widely and wildy, 
depending on supply, demand, and supplier, 
but you can try contacting Newer for old stock 
or tips on where to find used models. 

ff you manage to dig one up, be warned 
that installation doesn’t work quite the way 
Newer had planned, so it’s best not to use that 
company’s instructions. Better ones are avail- 
able at http://www.runtime.se/technical/ 
pbinstr.html. If you’re not sure the speedup 
is worth your time and trouble, check 
httpy/www.ogrady.com/bench/l67bench.html 
for benchmarks. For a comparison of various 
PowerPC upgrades, take a trip to http://www. 



runtime.se/technical/pbfan.htnil. 

Apple made its own upgrade that’ll pump 
you up from a 68040 to a lOOMHz 603e 
PowerPC. It’s not quite as fast as the NUpowr 
upgrade, and it may be even harder to find, 
but it does the job. At several hundred dollars, 
though, the card (part number MS081LL/A) 
will cost you. 

Upgrade Battery Caveat: The PowerPC 
upgrade can make Apple’s Battery Recondi- 
tioner claim your battery is busted, even if 
it’s not. VST Technologies’ EMMpathy fixes 
this unfortunate misunderstanding. You can 
pick up a copy at http*y/www.vsttech.com/soft 
ware.htm. 

RAM 

RAM addicts will be pleased to know that the 
500 series is expandable to 32MB, enough to 
run any application on the market, at least for 
now. A stripped-down copy of System 7.5.1 
with RAM Doubler and Maxima (both from 
Connectix) does a dandy job in just 20MB of 
RAM. (Maxima is a control panel that lets you 
boot from a RAM disk, as well as double your 
RAM.) Set up in this manner, a Mac not only 
runs well but also runs from a RAM disk, 
which means higher speeds and longer battery 
life. Unfortunately, Maxima was discontinued 
and is not easy to come by. RAM Doubler, how- 
ever, is ubiquitous — buy the latest version 
from your favorite vendor. 

For a spare Mac, 20MB will get you by. For 
a Mac you use every day for everything from 
email to project management, bump up 
the RAM. You’ll need the 70ns RAM for the 
PowerBook 500’s— it’s the only size that fits. 

Display 

There’s a slew of displays in the 500’s, from 
passive matrix gray scale through active matrix 
color. The 520 has a dual-scan display, vriiich 
is a somewhat sharper twist on the passive 
matrix concept. It comes in color or gray 
scale, but it doesn’t refresh as fast as an active 
matrix. The display’s a little faded and ghostly 
viewed at an angle, and faint lines may extend 
from window edges — ^an electrical thing. Also,

from all angles, with no submarining. They 
also use twice as much power and cost an 
extra grand or more, but if you plan to ham- 
mer a Blackbird all day, you’ll want one. If 
your PowerBook’s a secondary machine, stick 
with passive matrix — ^you’ll save on battery life 
and money. 

If you decide to make the change, you can 
swap out a 520’s passive display for a 540’s 
active one — ^the video hardware on both 
machines is the same. But consider where you 
work and what you’ll do with your PowerBook 
before you buy. With an active matrix gray 
scale, you can sit in bright sunlight, turn the 
backlighting off, and see the screen with crys- 
tal darity while getting the longest battery life 
you’ll ever have. A color screen in the same 
light will conjure up a few foggy images, and 
that’s about it. 

If you work at a desk, use an external 
monitor alongside the built-in display — 
500-series Macs support dual video. Put 
email on one display and documents on 
another, or palettes on one and art in prog- 
ress on the other. 

An external monitor will run at a resolu- 
tion of 832 by 624, even with the internal run- 
ning alongside at 640 by 840. (This is the 
PowerBook’s maximum resolution, and 
there’s no room to add VRAM.) External mon- 
itor cables run about $20 and are available 
from Cyberian Outpost, part number 43609- 

Batteries 

The “intelligent” battery, bom and raised in 
the 500 series, was cursed at birth with just a 
slight handicap. Apple designed the battery to 
deplete as slowly as possible by putting a chip 
in it that communicates with the system soft- 
ware. Unfortunately, the processor within the 
battery can become corrupted and make your 
system believe that the battery is out of juice 
when it really isn’t. 

Instead of giving your battery its last rites, 
you can usually resurrect it with VST’s EMM- 
pathy or either of these miracle-working 
applications: Apple’s Battery Reconditioner, 
available at http:/Avww.apple.com.au/docu 
ments/prodgroup.html, and Jeremy Kezer’s 
BatteryAmnesia, which is found at http;//mem 
bers.aol.com/jbkezer/shareware.html. 

They’ll fix battery problems in an hour or 
three, depending on how long the specific util- 
ity needs. If none of them work, it could be 
that the battery simply has held its last charge. 

The PowerBook’s internal power manager, 
which handles how the battery charges, can 
also become corrupt, and fairly easily. This 
can result in some bizarre behavior. To keep 
corruption at bay, always plug the AC adapter 
into the wall before plugging it into the Power- 
Book. If it dies anyway, there are excellent 



instructions on resetting it at http://www. 
westwind.com/pages/techrefrpbpwrmgr.html. 

SCSI In and Out 

SCSI Disk Mode, one of the handiest 
PowerBook perks, turns your 
PowerBook into an external drive 
mounted on another Mac’s desk- 
top. You invoke it via a special 30- 
pin PowerBook SCSI cable. Plug 
one end into the PowerBook, one 
end into another Mac, and boot 
both machines — ^the Ij^top shows 
up as a mounted volume. This fea- 
ture is unbelievably usefiil when you need to 
install software, synchronize files, or do some 
general data moving. 

You’U need a special cable, an HDI-30, 
which is different from an HDI-29 (the stan- 
dard cable for external devices such as a CD, 
Zip, or Jaz drive). The HDI-29 lacks a comer 
pin. It’s fine for hooking up an external drive, 
but it won’t get you into SCSI Disk Mode. Make 
sure your cable has either all 30 pins or a 
switch to flip between standard SCSI and SCSI 
Disk Mode. 

Every SCSI device must have its own JD 
number; the PowerBook Setup control panel 
handles this. You’ll know you have a conflict if 
the machine refiises to boot — ^no happy Mac 
means you have a SCSI identity crisis. 

Networking 

like all Macs, the PowerBook 500-series 
machines shipped with LocalTalk built in, but 
they also have the luxury of built-in Ethernet 
for more powerful networking. To use it, you’ll 
need an AAUI connector (Apple Attaclunent 
Unit Interface), which looks a little like a 
Phonenet connector but handles Ethernet 
cabling (RJ45, BNC, and so forth). You can 
order the standard twisted-pair AAUI from 
Apple (part number M0437) or from Asante 
at http://www.goniark.com/html/networkmg/ 
asante/fiiendlynetaaultransc.html. 

You’ll also need to plug into a network. 
It’s possible to create your own network by 
buying a hub, but that’s fairly complicated. If 
you only want to connect a pair of Macs at a 
full 10-Mbps Ethernet, cruise on down to your 
local computer store and buy an Ethernet 
crossover cable for $10 to $15. It looks just 
like a regular Ethernet lOBaseT cable, but two 
of its wires are crossed, so it can connect one 
Mac directly to another. You can’t daisy-chain 
machines, but you can connect a pair and 
share files far faster than with AppleTalk. 

Modems, Cages, and Cards 

Hooking up to the Internet via a 500’s internal 
modem means crawling along at a maximum 
speed of 19.2 Kbps. If you simply must have 



more modem, you’ll need to go on a hardware 
hunt. Seek out the elusive PCMCIA adapter 
cage, also known as a PC Card Cage. It fills one 
battery slot, which means you need only a sin- 



gle battery instead of two. Beware — ^it’s a big- 
game hunt. We’re talking white rhino, almost 
nonexistent. (If you’ve upgraded to PowerPC, 
the cage needs to be version C. Versions A and 
B both work with 68040 PowerBooks but not 
with PowerPC models.) 

The Inner Sanctum 

You don’t have to be a certified technician to 
add RAM and modem cards yourself. RAM 
and internal modems all ship with instructions 
on how to pop off the keyboard and make the 
swap — ^a painless 15-minute operation. 

TWeakMg the other innards, however, can 
be a messy operation. If you’re not comfort- 
able with a screwdriver, hex wrench, and lots 
of painfully tiny parts, take your Mac to a 
repair shop for the tough stuff. 

Case in point (and in case you’re doing it 
yourself anyway): Below the screen, a curved 
piece of plastic wraps around the hinge and 
connectors. It’s held in place by a row of prac- 
tically microscopic plastic pins, and removing 
that piece without breaking those pins is no 
small task. 

Fix-it Notice: If your screen wobbles every 
time you open your PowerBook, you may have 
a case of hingitis (inflammation of the hinges) . 
The 500 series has hinge screws empowered 
with the ability to self-unscrew. They hold the 
case to the display, and the only fix is to open 
the case and ti^ten them. Failure to do so can 
mean some serious display problems — ^for 
example, a cracked screen — so if your dis- 
play’s flailing, have it checked. There’s an 
excellent article on the topic by Joe Kudma 
and Larry Bles at http://ogrady.com/articles/ 
500hinge.stm. 

Software 

Any System software, from 7.5.1 through Mac 
OS 8.1, works great. The latest and greatest 
networking and communications software all 
works, too. Likewise with applications — as 
long as they’re not PowerPC only, you’re in.

otal domination. That’s what Adobe 
has long enjoyed with Photoshop, the 
market-crushing Godzilla of image- 
editing applications. Not only does every seri- 
ous digital artist swear by it, it’s the one piv- 
otal application whose continued existence 
on the Mac is a life-or-death matter for Apple. 

Unfortunately, unchallenged superiority 
can lead to complacency or even loss of 
direction, as Photoshop users discovered in 
the last upgrade. For all its good features 
(the Actions palette, for example), Photo- 
shop 4 imposed bizarre changes that forced 
you to relearn important operations with no 
compensatory gain in productivity. Mean- 
while, long-term weaknesses in the pro- 
gram went unaddressed. 

We’re glad to report that Adobe is back 
on track with the new upgrade. Photoshop 
5.0 finally conquers two major shortcom- 
ings users have kvetched about for years: 
the awkward, limited text 
tool and the lack of multi- 
ple undos. Also included 
are a number of improve- 
ments that make this the 
most significant Photo- 
shop upgrade since ver- 



USE THE NEW HISTORY 
PALETTE to revert to any 
previous stage of your 
work. If you haven’t got 
enough scratch disk space 
to hold all those earlier 
versions, Photoshop simply 
forgets the oldest ones. 



Sion : 
incider 
the 1( 

from u 

existing Photoshop plug-ins market. 

For example, Photoshop 5.0’s great 
new type tool basically puts Extensis’s 
PhotoTools plug-in out of business. All the 
complex type editing and formatting you 
used to do with PhotoTools, or by labori- 
ous selection work in Photoshop, you now 
can do with speed, power, and flexibility 
on the new type layer. This special layer 
(created when you choose the type tool 
from the tools palette and click anywhere 
in your document) tracks type and format- 
ting info and lets you make changes to any 
aspect of type at any time — just double- 
click on the type to edit it. 

At last, Photoshop includes profes- 
sional-level type handling. You have full 
control of tracking, kerning, leading, and 
baseline control, just as in Illustrator or 
PageMaker. You can play with unlimited 
fonts and styles in a layer, too. While you 
still have to enter and edit type in a dialog 
box (which is now a floater, not a modal 
dialog) instead of directly into your docu- 
ment, the document’s type layer does show 
a preview of what’s in the box. Moreover, 
you can reposition or apply effects such as 
drop shadows to the type layer in the doc- 
ument while the Type floater is open. 



THE LOOK OF PHOTOSHOP hasn’t changed 
much in version 5.0, but excellent new features 
make this the best upgrade in years. 

When you edit the type, the effects update 
to reflect your edits. 

The other major innovation in version 
5.0 is the History palette. This industrial- 
strength approach to multiple undos pro- 
vides almost unlimited options when you 
change your mind. It is by far the best 
implementation of the basic undo function 
that we’ve seen. Each operation you per- 
form — ^from selection moving to brush 
strokes to filter options — is logged into 
the History palette. The number of steps 
recorded is limited only by the amount of 
scratch disk space you have (or you can 
specify an upper limit of steps to preserve 
disk space). 

If you want to return your ira^e to a 
previous state, open the History palette and 
click on the relevant line. A slider lets you 
move interactively througli each stage — 
a very cool feature indeed. Once you’ve 
moved to an earlier stage in your work, you 
can make any necessary modifications and 
continue from there. (Note that you lose all 
the steps that come after this point.) The

Photoshop Does 3D, Sort Of 



Photoshop 5.0’s new 3D Translation plug-ln lets you map your 
image on cubes, spheres, and cylinders. It’s cute but quirky. 




Start with any image— say, Max In his MacAddict cubicle. 



2 Choose the 3D Transform plug-in from the Fitters menu. The 
intuitive (though inexplicably black-and-white) interface lets you 
deform areas of the Image with simple 3D shapes.

3 Placed against the original background, these objects simulate 
protrusion from the image. To rotate them, choose a rotate tool, 
then drag. Sorry, you can’t rotate them in different directions. 




4 Push it too far and you can see around the back. And gee, there’s 
no surface-normal smoothing! Well, after all, this is Photoshop, 
not Lightwave. 



History brush extends the power of the 
History palette, allowing you to paint earlier 
st^es of your image into selected areas. It’s 
like the Magic Eraser on steroids. 

The addition of layers was the most 
important innovation in Photoshop 3. 
Photoshop 5.0 adds built-in layer effects 
that obviate the need for many third-party 
effects filters. From one effects box, you 
can control settings for drop shadows, 
inner shadows, outer glows, inner glows, 
and embossing. Once you apply them, 
these effects remain live, so any further 



work you do on the layer will display the 
effect, too. Moreover, you can set bevels 
and shadows to have the same light-source 
angle and color, so any changes you make 
to the lighting in one effect are applied 
globally. This will be a major time-saver 
for you pixel pushers doing drop shadows 
all day long. 

Photoshop 5.0 adds new plug-ins, too. 
Most intriguing is the 3D Transform plug- 
in. This gives you the option of mapping 
your im^e on cubes, spheres, and cylin- 
ders, then moving and rotating those 



objects in 3D space. The idea is to allow 
realistic adjustments to the perspective of 
boxes and other geometrically simple 
objects in the image. Of course, this isn’t 
real 3D, and if you try to rotate things too 
far you’ll see around the back, which is 
just a featureless shape with no image 
map. It’s only a first cut at what eventually 
ought to be a full-fledged effort at integrat- 
ing 3D into Photoshop’s 2D world. (While 
you’re waiting for Adobe to get around to 
that, try Vertigo’s Dizzy and 3D HotText 
plug-ins for 3D work in Photoshop.)

Text Mastery at Last 



Photoshop’s new Type tool is a massive improvement over the wussy, balky Text tool 
of the past. Here are a few of the tricks you can perform.

TEXT TEXT 



B <OOH aiPntlnWitKfaw I 4 




1 Initially, the Photoshop 5 Type tool looks 
very much like the old Photoshop 4 Text 
tool— but it has a lot of new functionality. 




2 In the Type box, you can apply different 
fonts and font sizes, and change the lead- 
ing separately on selected blocks of text. 




3 Created text goes on a special text layer. 
You can rotate, scale, and skew rt with the 
Free Transform tool and not lose quality. 





5 Add a drop shadow effect to the layer. 
Adjust It interactively Inside the window, 
or even with a dialog box up. 




6 The text layer has been “frozen” to a 
normal pixel layer. You can now edit It 
with all of Photoshop’s painting tools. 



Automation plug-ins (located some- 
what anomalously in the File menu) are a 
new plug-in type; they basically function as 
file-handling wizards. For example, the 
Batch command Automation plug-in han- 
dles batch processing better than the 
batch command in Photoshop 4’s Action 
palette. The Contact Sheet command cre- 
ates a contact sheet with thumbnails of all 
the images in a folder. While you can do 
the same things with Actions, Automation 
plug-ins generally work faster and provide 
more functionality (and, of course, you 
don’t have to set up the Action yourself). 
Third parties can design new Automation 
plug-ins to perform any procedure 
addressable through the Automation plug- 
in API in the Photoshop 5.0 SDK (on the 
Photoshop disc). Expect to see third-party 
suites of Automations customized for the 
file needs of various vertical markets. 

Minor updates to the Selection and Pen 
tools are mostly geared to edge detection, 
which Photoshop previously hasn’t done 
well and with which it still has trouble. 



Trace along an edge between areas of high 
contrast with the new Magnetic Lasso or 
Magnetic Pen tool, and the selection hne 
or path will snap to the edge. However, the 
Lasso or Pen will often miss the edge when 
there’s little contrast or where colors are 
very close. Even when the contrast is high, 
the smoothing algorithms appUed to the 
Lasso or path tend to make it shrink. We 
preferred the Magnetic Pen to the 
Magnetic Lasso, because it provided more 
editing control and better results. 

You’ll also notice a host of color- 
handling improvements. A multiple eye- 
dropper lets you sample up to four color 
regions at once. The RGB or CMYK color 
info is reported in the Info palette. Color 
management has been beefed up with spot 
color channels, support for the Inter- 
national Color Consortium (ICC) CMS and 
the sRGB non-monitor color space, and a 
gamma control panel that other Adobe 
programs, including Illustrator, will share. 

Now that Photoshop has eliminated its 
two major weaknesses, what worlds are 



left to conquer? The program still doesn’t 
import 3DMFs or any other 3D model for- 
mat, though you can do that with plug-ins. 
The option to work on a low-res proxy of 
big files, speeding your work and making 
efficient use of hmited RAM, would be 
nice, too. But our vote is for a more 
sweeping innovation. We’d hke to see 
Photoshop integrate the powers of the 
Actions and History palettes and the 
Automation plug-ins and go totally proce- 
dural, so that you can make any feature of 
the program interact modelessly with 
any other, perhaps via an AppleScript- 
compatible scripting language. 

Until that high level of functionaUty is 
added, however — if it ever is — ^you’re 
bound to be happy with Photoshop 5.0. 
— Steve Anzovin and Raf Anzovin 



GOOD NEWS: Super text handling. ^ 
Multiple undos. More color manage- 
ment features. Snap-to-edge paths. 

Faster for some tasks. BAD NEWS: “ 

Needs more RAM and hard disk space than ever.

I t’s ironic that the company that brings us 
CyberStudio 3.0 is named Golive, 
because we sure aren’t going anywhere 
now that we’re glued to our Macs, cranking 
out killer Web sites by the bucket. This mas- 
sive upgrade adds a slew of features to this 
robust Web-pubhshing tool that meet most 
of the needs of Web pros.

IN THIS OBJECTS PALETTE, you can drag any number of 
elements into your Web page. These tabs include HTML 
basics, forms, header properties, frames, site elements, 
CyberStudio special functions (such as a handy date and 
time stamp), and a custom tab for your often-used elements. 

Golive has labeled this upgrade the 
Professional Edition for a reason. The man- 
ual totals a whopping 843 pages (including 
a WebObjects addendum); learning how to 
use all of (}yberStudio’s features isn’t for the 
faint of heart. To complete even basic tasks, 
you need to become famihar with how this 
application works. CyberStudio presents 
many of its tools in palettes, which necessi- 
tates not only a huge monitor but also the 
ability to grasp the icon-driven process of 
building Web pages. 



CyberStudio 3.0 offers 
three ways to create and edit 
Web pages: WYSIWYG layout 
mode, tag-outline mode, and 
regular text-source mode. 

GoLive has improved the 
source editor for those Ludd- 
ites out there by supporting 
grep search and replace func- 
tions, HTML syntax and com- 
patibility checking based on a 
number of different browsers, 
and line numbering. 

The WYSIWYG layout edi- 
tor has been enhanced as 
well. Finally you can select multiple objects. 
You can import tab-delimited ASCII files as 
tables. Object alignment is possible. And, 
thankfully, you can select multiple table cells 
and modify them as a group. One major 
enhancement is the inclusion of master 
objects, which allow you to edit the common 
elements of a site — say, a navigation bar — 
in one place and update them across the 
entire site. All these features have been high 
on user request lists since version 1.0, and 
we’re delighted to see them in this upgrade. 

Now the fun begins: CyberStudio 3.0 
allows Web designers to create and edit 
WYSIWYG Cascading Style Sheets and 
Dynamic HTML. These advanced features, 
which 4.0 browsers support, allow you to 
animate your pages and to control design 
elements such as placement and typography. 
While these features still do not enjoy uni- 
versal support on the Web, CyberStudio 
helps you tackle the arcane scripting with a 
minimum of fuss. Premade JavaScript

LAYING OUT A TOP-QUALITY WEB SITE such as this one 
(chosen at random, really!) is a snap with CyberStudio 3.0. 

actions round out CyberStudio’s advanced 
feature set. 

Golive has completely overhauled Cyber- 
Studio’s site-management tools. Previous 
versions used a confusing system of abases 
to files on the hard drive. This upgrade refer- 
ences your hard drive directly, so you can 
check links and view your site’s hierarchy 
with ease. Version 3.0 also does away with 
the old Projects window. Instead, it places 
common elements of a site into the more 
sensible Site window. CyberStudio 30. also 
allows incremental page and site uploads to 
your servers. 

The 3.0 upgrade to GoLive’s Cyber- 
Studio extends the original’s powers signif- 
icantly, improving on old features and 
adding new ones for today’s Web technolo- 
gies. While it’s not the easiest tool to use, it 
is one of the most feature rich. Given the 
complexity of the Web as it exists today, 
designers will very likely rely on Cyber- 
Studio as a mainstay in their site-budding 
processes . — Scott Love

Anifflation:Master 98 



GRAPHICS & SOUND 



COMPANY: Hash 

CONTACT: 360-750-0042, http://www.hash.com 
PRICE: $199, network version $699 

REQUIREMENTS: PowerPC Mac (G3 recommended), System 7.5 or later, 24MB of 
RAM (64MB recommended), QuickDraw 3D 1.5 or later 



I n the field of computer graphics, the 
premier test of skill is character anima- 
tion, the art of imbuing a 3D object with 
life and personality. Most 3D developers 
are scrambfing to include at least a few 
relevant character animation features in 
their products, but all too often these are 
poorly thought-out tools tacked on to apps 
that were never designed to do the work. 

Then there’s Hash’s AnimationiMaster, 
the only 3D app on the Mac expressly 
designed for character animation. Hash 
insists that AnimationiMaster, introduced 
for the Amiga a decade ago, is primarily a 
hobbyist’s program, but the new iteration, 
AnimationiMaster 98 (also known as ver- 
sion 6), competes directly with products 10 
to 20 times its price. 

AnimationiMaster 98’s pride is its 
sphne-based modeler. Rather than using 
polygons (rigid shapes that fit together to 
form a 3D surface), as most 3D packages 
do, AnimationiMaster is built from the 
ground up around splines and patches. 
These are better suited than polygons to 
modefing seamless, flexible organic 
shapes. (In fact, Hash provides no polygon 



support at all, a 
drawback if you 
want to import mod- 
els from other 3D 
programs.) 

The power of 
Hash’s spline mod- 
eler is its simplicity.

trols to move and adjust surfaces made of 
many spline control points. Other than a 
lathe and extrude tool, there are no tools 
for automatically building surfaces, either. 
Instead, AnimationiMaster refies mainly 
on lower-level tools. You can create, link, 
and unlink splines in any direction. You 
build complex surfaces spline by spline, 
by drawing and attaching them. A similar- 
ly simple method defines a patch — any 
enclosure of three or four control points 
of more than one spline. This connect-the- 
dots approach makes AnimationiMaster 
98’s modeling interface very simple, 
direct, and easy to understand. However, 
building complex objects control point by 
control point can be a tedious process. 



Any future release should add lattice 
deformation tools or lofting and skinning 
functions. 

AnimationiMaster 98 boasts advanced 
inverse kinematics (IK), bones, and move- 
ment constraints that are optimized for the 
creation of convincing movement. In 
AnimationiMaster 98, you can save the 
motions of bones — the skeletal structures 
inside a character that govern its move- 
ment — as a series of “Actions.” You can 
keyframe Actions in the scene (called a 
Choreography in Hashspeak) or in a sepa- 
rate Action window, then drag and drop 
them into multiple scenes and use them 
with multiple characters. Actions applied 
to a single character can overlap one 



Animating a Waik Cycie 



Making a character walk is relativeiy easy with AnimationiMaster 98. Here’s how to 
use the Stride Length tool to create a walking character that changes direction. 




I This creature was modeled with 
tubelike joints that bend like rubber 
hoses. For this reason, not much 
detail was included in the elbow regions so 
that they would bend smoothly. 




2 Give every joint a bone; complex joints may need two or 
more. Use Orient Like constraints blended together to ori- 
ent middle joint bones directly between other joint bones, 
so that the joint doesn’t buckle. Apply a Kinematic constraint to 
the foot bones to root them to the ground. 



3 In an Action window, give the character 
a walk cycle— a loopable animation of 
the character walking in place. The pro- 
gram ships with various walk cycle Actions that 
you can use.

Version 6.1 

Animation:!VIaster version 6.1 , in early beta at 
press time, will offer major enhancements 
over version 98. 

Complete undo: Multiple undo vi/orks in 
all areas of the program, not just in modeling 
windows. 

Five-point patches: This new patch 
type, placed at stress points such as under- 
arms and elbows, eliminates creasing and 
buckling in models. 

Hair particles: These render long 
strands of hair all over a surface. 

Timeline; Displays time markers for the 
keyframes of ail objects and allows you to edit 
their placement. 

Sound integration: Direct sound 
import for timing. 

Pose sliders; These blend together sev- 
eral poses of an object. 

DXF import: Brings in polygonal DXFs 
and turns them into patch objects. 
Radiosity: High-end, very realistic, and 
very slow rendering mode. 

Cubic and cylindrical mapping: 
Standard texture-mapping geometries will save 
you from having to flatten objects. 



another at different times, and control cer- 
tain bones while different Actions control 
others. You could, for example, use a walk- 
ing Action on the lower body of a character 
while animating an entirely new upper 
body animation. 

The Action system makes possible a 
whole range of advanced abilities that 
other animation programs don’t provide. 
Action Objects ^ow any object to tem- 
porarily become part of the bone struc- 
ture of the character. Making stars fly 
around the head of a character who’s just 
been bonked on the noggin is one typical 
use for this tool. Another Action feature, 
Stride Length, accomplishes nearly auto- 
matically what animators have slaved over 



4 Specify your character’s Stride Length. 
This allows the character’s moving feet to 
stick to the floor. Too long or too short a 
length may cause the character to “ice-skate” or 
seem to slip forward or backward as it walks. 



since the dawn of computer animation — 
getting a character’s feet to stick solidly to 
the ground as it walks. One Actions draw- 
back: Actions created in a Choreography 
window can’t be used elsewhere. You 
must use the Action window to create 
portable Actions. 

Character animation programs live and 
die by their implementation of IK. This fea- 
ture allows a whole chain of bones linked 
together to move and bend at one time, 
eliminating the necessity of bending each 
joint separately. Hash’s implementation of 
IK is the only one we’ve used that 
approaches the ease of moving a puppet or 
armature in the real world — all the con- 
trols you need are included as handles on 
the surface of the bones. The IK engine 
effectively simulates the effect of moving 
and posing joints — pull on the wrist, and 
the elbow and shoulder follow. Pull on the 
elbow, and it moves while trying to keep 
the wrist m the same place. This function is 
ideal for making slight changes in the pose 
of a character. 

Animation:Master 98 also has one of 
the best constraint systems — settings that 
limit an object’s movement — ^in the busi- 
ness. Constraints can set a maximum 
degree of rotation along any axis (so that 
knees don’t bend the wrong way) or con- 
strain the object to the movement or orien- 
tation of other objects in complex ways. 
For example, the Orient Like constraint 
rotates an object or bone so that it points 
in the same direction as another one. You 
can use this constraint to keep a charac- 
ter’s feet flat on the floor. Constraints also 
can work in between the bone structures of 
different objects, and you can animate the 
level of influence of a given constraint over 
time, blend and overlap constraints of the 
same type, and add animatable offsets to 
constraints. Similar features are available 
nowhere else on the Mac. 

The process of applying surfaces to 
objects in Animation:Master 98 has some 



5 In a Choreography window, set up a basic 
scene with the character. Using the path 
tool, draw a path for the character. Apply 
the new walk Action to the character; then apply a 
Path constraint to make It walk only on the path. 



quirks. Most types of surfaces require a 
decal (image map). Applying decals is 
direct and simple. You just import the 
im^e, drag it around on the screen until 
it’s exactly where you want it, then stamp it 
down. However, that’s all you can do with 
it — ^you can’t wrap the map around an 
object using various mapping geometries, 
as you can in most 3D programs. To get 
precise mapping control, you must “flat- 
ten” the object before applying the decal, 
which is difficult to do properly. 

Rendering quality, a weak area in earlier 
Animation.Master versions, no longer disap- 
points. It now has high-end features such as 
motion blur, depth of field, and nonsquare 
pixels. The only feature seriously lacking is 
field rendering, which is crucial for com- 
positing your animation with video in post- 
production. Net rendering is available in the 
$699 network version of the program. 

Unfortunately, the manual is not up to 
the rest of the program. It glosses over 
important topics with vague and elliptical 
language, then tries to clarify its statements 
with skimpy tutorials that may or may not 
answer your questions. Luckily, very good 
online FAQs and tutorials are available at 
Hash’s Web site and at the 3D Ark site 
(www.3dark.com). 

Animation:Master 98 is certainly not 
the software of choice for general-purpose 
modeling and the animation of flying 
logos. But if you want to create walking, 
talking, living, breathing 3D characters, 
there’s simply no other program that 
comes close . — RafAnzovin 



GOOD NEWS; Best app on the Mac "^0 

for character animation. Advanced ■ I 

iK, bones, and constraints. Stride

Low price. BAD NEWS; Undo does not work in 
all windows. Difficult to warp and deform large

FIND A 
DEMO of 
Diablo on 
The Disc. 



D iablo has many of the features of a 
classic role-playing game, or RPG. So, 
before you start adventuring, the first 
order of business is to decide what type of 
character you will play. You have three 
choices: warrior, rogue, or sorcerer. The 
warrior can use just about any weapon. He 
is very strong and tough, but he lacks 
finesse. The rogue is the dexterous, stealthy 
type who can disarm traps and use a bow 
with deadly precision. She is neither as tough 
nor as strong as the warrior, however, and 
will be at a disadvant^e in close combat. 
The sorcerer is the we^est of all the char- 
acters at the beginning of the game, but has

the potential to become the most powerful 
of the three. His innate magical abifities 
allow him to learn spells quickly — especial- 
ly those of great potency. The sorcerer is 
quite vulnerable in close combat, though, so 
be careful. 

Once you have selected your character 
and given him or her a name, it’s time to 
begin your quest. In single-player mode, you 
alone must stop Diablo firom making evil 
reign supreme. The ancient monastery in 
Tristram, the medieval town in which the 
game takes place, has been overrun by 
Diablo and his evil minions. The once-pros- 
perous town is quickly succumbing to this 
plague of diablerie. Like Dante in the 
Inferno, you must venture into the depths of 
the abysmal tunnels and catacombs beneath 
the desecrated monastery and destroy 
Diablo. 

In Tristram, you can do most of the 
things you would expect to do in an RPG. 
You can buy and sell armor and weapons 
from the blacksmith; have the town’s sage 
identify strange items; heal yourself; buy 
healing potions from the cleric, which you 
can use later; and exchange certain magical 
items with the town’s witch. Interesting char- 
acters will occasionally ask you to perform a 
deed for them and reward you with some-

thing when you have completed your task. 

Once you’re outfitted with as much as 
your starting 100 pieces of gold will buy, you 
descend into the depths of the monastery. 
Gameplay proceeds in real time. As you 
walk around, monsters pop out and attack 
you, and you assail them as quickly as you 
can by clicking the mouse like crazy. You 
can also open chests, barrels, and sar- 
cophagi to find goodies such as potions, 
scrolls, and weapons hidden inside. As you 
kill more demonic creatures and devifish 
acolytes and descend deeper into the 
labyrinth, your character will gain experi- 
ence, which allows him or her to increase 
abifities. You will also begin to understand 
the sinister implications of what is really 
going on. 

If you want to play with or against oth- 
ers, you can either use a local network or 
play over the Internet via Battle.net, 
Blizzard’s online gaming service. Using 
one of these methods, you can play with 
up to four other people at once and either 
cooperate to defeat Diablo or compete 
and fight against each other. As in other 
networked games, this adds a unique and 
enthralling aspect to the game, because 
you are playing with real people instead of 
a computer. 

The long-awaited Mac version of Diablo 
does not disappoint. Blizzard has combined 
the classic RPG style with real-time action 
and multiplayer networking to produce an 
addictive game with fantastic graphics and 
an absorbing plot . — Wade Albright 



GOOD NEWS: Addictive, absorbing ^ 
single-player and multiplayer action. 

Awesome graphics and sound. 

Interesting plot. BAD NEWS: Blizzard

U ntil the appearance of 
the Autostart 9805 
Worm a few months 
back, the Mac had gone almost 
three years without the emer- 
gence of a genuine virus. But in the interim, 
the plague of cross-platform macro viruses — 
primarily transmitted via Microsoft Word 6.0 
and later — ^has become a full-fledged epi- 
demic. In the latest release of the utility for- 
merly known as Symantec Antivirus for 
Macintosh, Symantec has added a couple of 
feature tweaks that better address this threat. 

To stay a step ahead of prolific macro 
virus authors, the newly rechristened Nor- 
ton Antivirus incorporates a heuristic 
“Bloodhound” system that promises to sniff 
out unidentified new macro viruses.

shift-F2 and the monitor suddenly zooms to a 
2X magnification. Shift-Fl returns the moni- 
tor to its regular IX display — particularly 
useful for folks who need to see the detail in 
a graphics program but don’t want to change 
the view’s magnification setting. The driver 
also includes a screen saver, a set of start-up 
hot keys (which let you change monitor set- 
tings when booting), and control over the 
monitor’s gamma settings. 

Installation was a bit tricky for both of 
these cards. For some reason, neither card 
would seat properly when we inserted it and 
held it down with the anchor screw. To get 
the cards to seat properly, we had to leave 
them unanchored — a condition we don’t 
recommend— and only then could we get 
them to lock down in the PCI slots. The video 
driver would not load until the cards were 
properly seated. Once they were in, though, 
we had no problem getting them to perform. 

The Vision 3D and Vision 3D Pro II 
cards can throw pixels around with the best 
of them. In both cases, properly calibrated 
displays were crisp and cool, and the video 
driver software offers niceties such as hard- 
ware zoom and gamma control so you can 
get the most out of your Mac’s video. As an 
entry-level card, the Vision 3D offers great 
performance for its price. If you’re looking 
to drive a high-resolution monitor at 24-bit 
color, or you need some serious 3D accel- 
eration, the Vision 3D Pro n card is a solid 
contender . — David Reynolds

I t was a big deal when the Mac went color. 
There was something about the switch 
from black lines on white fields to fiiU, 
glorious 8-bit color that set the stage for dig- 
ital media. The thing is, as color depth has 
increased and monitor sizes have grown, the 
amount of processing power it takes to throw 
that much data around has gotten steadily 
larger. The standard Macintosh video cards 
do a fine job, but they can be a little slow. The 
Mactell Vision 3D and Vision 3D Pro II cards, 
on the other hand, aim to provide snappy, 
crisp video for your Mac. 

At only $145, the Vision 3D card gives 
you great video acceleration for the price. 
The 4MB of VRAM installed on this card 
allows 24-bit color at 1016 by 768 resolution 
or, alternatively, 8-bit color at 1280 by 1024 
resolution — enough to drive a 21-inch mon- 
VISION 3D itor. Based on the S3

of everyday Mac video functions, as well 
as QuickDraw 3D acceleration complete 
with modular lighting effects. 

For a heftier $995, you can invest in the 
top-of-the-line Vision 3D Pro n. This beefy 
video card kicks out the video with 8MB of 
VRAM for 24-bit color at resolutions as high 
as 1920 by 1080. Try reading that on a 17- 
inch monitor. The Vision 3D Pro n is based 
on Number Nine’s state-of-the-art Ticket to 
Ride video processor, which provides for 
some fast video rendering. While the Vision 
3D card uses a 64-bit bus, the Vision 3D Pro 
n card has a 128-bit bus for even faster 
throughput. Like the Vision 3D, the Vision 3D 
Pro n also offers QuickTime and QuickDraw 
3D acceleration. 

Although the Vision 3D Pro n card has a 
lot of built-in performance enhancement, we 
didn’t see much of a performance difference 
between the two cards in day-to-day use, 
other than differences in resolution (and the 
contrast between 4MB and 8MB of VRAM is 
quite significant). In fact, our scroll test 
showed exactly the same performance by 
both cards — but this test examines only one 
kind of video acceleration. We didn’t get 
much acceleration when viewing QuickTime 
movies, either. Both cards handled playback 
of a large movie file well, not dropping a 
frame even at double the frame size. When 
we ran a full-size playback at 1024 by 768, 
however, neither video card could handle 
full-motion playback of the movie. 
The included video driver is 
a pretty nifty piece of software. It 
allows you to turn QuickDraw, 
QuickDraw 3D, and QuickTime 
acceleration on and off. It con- 
trols the size of the font cache, 
reserving some of the system

GOOD NEWS; Finally integrated with 
QuickTime and the Web. Retains 
HyperCard’s retro charm. BAD 
NEWS; Retains HyperCard’s retro 
charm. Not a major upgrade. 



HYPERCARD QUICKTIME TOOLS 



DEVELOPMENT 



the first complete implementation of a com- 
mand language for QuickTime VR From with- 
in HyperTalk, you can specify VR nodes by 
their unique H)s, change to a custom cursor 
when the mouse passes over a hot spot, and 
move among multiple nodes even if the cre- 
ator of the VR movie didn’t link them. 

HyperCard 2,4 is not Web-ready out of the 
box (you need Web server software and Royal 
Software’s LiveCard to publish your stacks on 
the Internet), but you now can use a 
HyperTalk command to open an URL with 
your default Web browser. For example, you 
can set up a button action to link directly to a 
Web page related to the material on a card. 

Apple has made some welcome 
improvements to the script window but 
failed to address such problems as the pro- 
gram’s inability to view and change the 
properties of more than one object at a 
time, its excessively modal structure, and 
the tiny field capacity (still only 32K!). Not 
to mention that HyperCard stili lacks built-in 
color support, antialiased text, built-in text 
replacement, forward deleting in text fields, 
a database-style list view — and there’s not 
even a Windows player for stacks. 

Can you do serious work in HyperCard? 
Absolutely. I use it every day to manage sev- 
eral large reference book and directory 
projects. And QuickTime or QuickTimeVR 
creators definitely should add HyperCard 
2.4 to their arsenals. Nonetheless, ihe pro- 
gram is in desperate need of a major 
upgrade that addresses its long-standing 
shortcomings . — Steven Anzovin

ike a graying radical from the sixties, 
HyperCard has been living in the past for 
quite some time now. More than two 
years have passed since Apple last upgraded 
its once-revolutionary but now creaky-in- 
the-joints multimedia authoring application, 
and that was a mere shuffle from version 2.3

Without Scripting 

I f you want to get the most out of HyperCard 2.4’s QuickTime wiz- 
ardry, you’ve got to learn HyperTalk scripting. Luckily, Apple took pity 
on you and included some cards that let you play with QuickTime’s fea- 
tures first. Once you’ve got a sense of what the various options do, 
press the shift key while choosing Card Info from the Object menu to 
see the card script. It’s all in there. Other cards in the QuickTime Tools 
stack provide a complete description of ail QuickTime-related com- 
mands, functions, properties, and messages.

to version 2.3.5. Most of us die-hard stack- 
ers frankly had given up hope for the old 
gent and expected any day to read that he 
had quietly passed away. 

HyperCard 2.4, avaftable on Apple’s Web 
site as an updater for versions 2.3 and 2.3.5, 
actually breathes life into the old fellow. 
What’s new in HyperCard 2.4 is mainly 
QuickTime. Previously, you 
could play movies in HyperCard 
using QuickTime Tools, but now 
the native vocabulary of Hyper- 
Talk (HyperCard’s scripting lan- 
guage) incorporates a large 
number of new QuickTime- 
related commands, properties, 
and messages. These functions 
give you unprecedented control 
over every aspect of QuickTime, 
including features you probably 
didn’t know about, and for the 
first time allow movies to be 
interactive. 

The new Movie XCMD 
allows you to address the prop- 
erties of each QuickTime track 
type and use them to perform 
tasks with your HyperTalk han- 
dlers. You can play with sprites, 
frame rates, track order, sound 
volume, and so on. For exam- 
ple, to adjust the volume of a 
movie to maximum, you use the 
command “set soundVolume of 
audio track 1 of movie ‘My 
Movie’ to 100.” What you gen- 
erally can’t do is change the 
content of a movie track. So 
although you can search for, 
extract, and jump to the text of a 
QuickTime text track, you can’t 
modify the text itself. Do that in 
MoviePlayer or another Quick- 
Time editor. 

HyperCard 2.4 also contains

Scriptware 
on The Disc. 



W hat do The X-Files, King of the 
Hilly Leaving Las VegaSy and Ace 
Ventura have in common? Their 
scripts were all created in Cinovation’s 
Scriptware. Long a Windows product, 
Scriptware is now available for the 
scriptwriting Mac user. 

Scriptware is a word processor that spe- 
cializes in, not surprisingly, script creation. 
The manual is a great guide and introduces 
even the most novice Mac user to the appli- 
cation with great efficiency — and the occa- 
sional potshot at Windows users. Set up in 
tutorial form, the manual leads you through 
several lessons that quickly show you 
Scriptware’s major capabilities. 

Once you get beyond the basics, 
Scriptware’s power becomes evident. The 
product is completely customizable. The easy- 
to-use default settings make scriptwriting a 
snap, but should you need to change those 
settings it’s nice to know you can — ^you don’t

ter dialogue, you press the tab key and type 
the first few letters of the character’s name, 
and Scriptware autocompletes the name for 
you — it appears in a pop-up window. Just 
press return to accept the highlighted name, 
and then start typing; the program formats 
your dialogue for you. By default, shift-return 
starts a new scene, and option-return starts a 
new shot. Tabbing allows you to enter camera 
instructions (pan to, fade to, and so on), 
among other things. Scriptware features a 
fijlly customizable set of scene-time features, 
including day, dusk, and sunset. Shots, also 
fully customizable, include Camera On and 
P.O.V. Plus, Scriptware plays housemaid as 
you type, automatically capitalizing the first 
word in each sentence and all stand-alone 
and contracted forms of “I” — ^a feature that 
will save you the trouble of using that pesky 
shift key so often. 

Scriptware also offers powerful tools 
for modifying an existing script. For exam- 
ple, if you’ve typed a script intended for 
sitcom use, you can change the entire 
script to film formatting with one menu 
selection. Scene Cards allow you to 
move scenes as easily as you would 
shuffle a deck of cards. All in all, the 
organization and modification tools 
are phenomenal. 

Users will discover some other 
useful features when they get further 
into the application. A Notes feature 
comes in handy for organizing your 
thoughts or communicating with the 
producer. You can also use Notes in 
jump commands, such as “Jump to 
next note,” and even hide them from 
view. If dialogue continues across two

pages, Scriptware automatically places the 
character name and the word (contin-

Reformatting the script reformats every 
page break almost instantaneously. 

Importing scripts from your favorite 
word-processing application is not as easy 
as it could be. Scriptware allows you to 
import text ffles; if this is successful, your 
script acts like any other Scriptware docu- 
ment. If your original document does not 
follow conventional scriptwriting guide- 
lines, importing the file results in a virtu- 
ally unusable document. 

Scriptware’s biggest flaw is the way it 
handles standard text procedures. Shift- 
chddng does not select blocks of text — ^you 
must click-drag to select text. Adapting to 
these quirks won’t kill you, but you shoul- 
dn’t have to adapt in the first place. 

Whether you need to write a script for 
Hollywood or for Hollywood Hills High 
School, Scriptware will star in the leading 
role. — Erik]. Barzeski

S tar this, star that. Given the abundance 
of real-time strategy games that take 
place in a sci-fi setting, a new offering 
doesn’t exactly raise eyebrows. What does 
Star Control 3 have that other titles in the

the third installment in the series, builds on 
a complex history of events in a multiracial 
galaxy where there is no short^e of politi- 
cal conflicts and intrigue. 

In this adventure, a mysterious force 
seems responsible for the collapse of Hyper 
Space travel — the destruction of which 
threatens all sentient life. As a captain in the 
League of Sentient Races, your mission is 
twofold: explore the unknown Kessari 
Quadrant — all League ships, colonies, and

resources are under your 
command — and rescue 
sentient life from an 
untimely demise. 

In your first contact with the game, the 
interface and graphics look odd and out- 
dated. Star Control 3, a direct port from the 
PC, harks back to 1996 when Accolade first 
published it, which explains both the old 
graphics and the Mac-agnostic interface. In 
any case, once you get your bearings and 
proceed to gameplay, aesthetic concerns fall 
away. Star Control 3's most compelling qual- 
ity is the fusion of diplomatic interaction and 
the quest for survival. 

Most of your game advances in animated 
tete-a-t^tes with alien races, old friends, and 
new enemies. Behavior, sense of humor, 
speech, and intelligence characterize individ- 
ual species. The cinematic scenes feature 
Claymation instead of M-motion video, and 
wonderful voice talent brings the characters 
to life, resulting in a high degree of expression 
and fluidity. During these diplomatic 
exchanges, you read a discussant’s mood 
from visual dues. When you miss a plot twist, 
you can mvoke the ICOM, a Hal 9000 look- 
alike, which provides usefiil information. 

The execution of the action and strategic 
components is less brilliant. Blending too 
many elements produced a mishmash of 
interfaces. For example, 3D gameplay has 
mixed results. The rotating 3D star map — 
present in the original Star Control — tries to 
depict space realistically, but its rotation 
sometimes obscures unlabeled stars. In the 
2D map, the calculation of distances between 
stars is complicated. The battle scenes, 
labeled “Hyper Melee,” occur in isometric 
view — ^you can’t move in three dimensions. 

Furthermore, though the box says 
“Explore. Manage. Conquer,” you don’t 
spend a lot of time building or managing 
your empire of Le^e worlds. The com- 
plexity extant elsewhere in Star Control 3 is 
missing in the tacked-on colony manage-

ment. In the colony screen, you have only 
two architectural styles. You don’t mans^e 
your colonies from a central control; you 
must travel to a planet to modify the sliders, 
which regulate resources. It’s laissez- 
faire — establish one colony for each 
spedes in the League, produce some colo- 
nial modules, then balance them to build 
fiiel and ships. On the other hand, less man- 
agement translates into more exploration of 
the quadrant and more interaction with 
characters on your quest. 

Star Control 3 has a multiplayer mode; it’s 
limited to Hyper Mdee. Fight fiiends on the 
same keyboard, or over a modem, serial, or 
network connection. Star Control 3, although 
dated, proves entertaining for fans of the 
series or gamesters who like interactive 
adventures without total strategic conquest.

COMPANY: Epson

REQUIREMENTS: 68020 or faster, System 7.1 or later, 16MB of RAM, 
50MB of free hard disk space, standard Apple serial cable 



I t’s tough to get excited about an ink-jet 
printer. After all, there’s not much new 
about printing color images using sever- 
al colors of ink, and color ink-jet printers 
have been around for awhile. The reason 
the Epson Stylus Photo EX gets our drool 
a-flowin’ is its combination of print quality 
and price. For about $500, this printer can 
produce photo-realistic printouts at sizes 
ranging from the standard 3-by-5-inch print 
to 11.7-by-44-inch panoramas. 

The Photo EX performs its magic with a 
combination of l440-by-720-dpi resolu- 
tion, a six-color printing process, and Micro 
Piezo printhead technology (which gives the 
printer tremendous control over the size 
and shape of individual ink dots). When it 
prints high-resolution photos on glossy film 
paper, the result loote almost as if it had 
come fi-om a photo lab — the resolution is 
fine enough so the graininess of the film 
starts to show through, large areas of simi- 
lar colors have almost continuous tones, 
and lines are crisp and sharp. The motion of 
the printhead causes minor horizontal 



ALTHOUGH THE QUALITY of this photo (shot 
with a digital camera) isn’t quite up to the 
level of a film-based image, the Photo EX 
does a remarkable job of making the best- 
possible print of it. 



irs SLEEK, STYLISH, and its print quality 
will amaze ail who see it— especially given its price. 



banding, but it isn’t 
noticable except on 
close examination. 

The print quality 
depends on the kind 
of paper used. The 
finest print quality is 
available with glossy 
film paper, which is 
also fee most expen- 
sive option — a little 
over $1.80 per letter- 
size sheet. High- 
quality ink-jet paper is significantly cheaper 
at around 12 cents per 8.5-by-l 1-inch 
sheet, so save that glossy film for fee best 
photos. After all, fee regular ink-jet paper 
takes a pretty good im^e. You might also 
want to spring for the ll-by-22-inch 
panoramic glossy film paper, which runs 
about $1.70 a sheet. 

While fee Photo EX wouldn’t win a page- 
per-minute race wife a laser printer, it isn’t 
deathly slow, eifeer. Printing an 8-by-lO-inch 
image on fee high-quality setting takes just 
under 5 minutes. Printing black text is also 
reasonably fast. We were able to get a couple 
of text pages per minute from fee printer. 

One other nifty feature of fee Photo EX is 
its connectivity wife fee Epson Photo PC 600 
digital camera. By connecting a Photo PC 
600 to fee Photo EX, you can print 4-by-6- 
inch images directly from fee camera. The 
quality of these images, while it won’t knock 
point-and-shoot cameras out of the con- 
sumer market, is remarkably good, and cer- 
tainly acceptable for snapshots. 

The Photo EX has its faults. To connect 
fee Photo EX when you get it home, you’ll 
need to buy a Mac eight-pin serial cable. 
And while fee Photo EX ships wife a good 
starter software bundle — including Photo- 
shop 4.0LE, Extensis Portfolio, and Spin 



THIS LONU-EXPU5URE NIGHTTIME SHOT Of San 
Francisco shows some of the Stylus Photo EX’s strengths 
and weaknesses. The image was scanned directly from a 
35-millimeter negative. 

A; The gradual color changes in the night sky show off 
the Photo EX’S handling of continuous tones. Note the hint 
of grain from the negative that shows in the image. 

B: Individual cyan dots appear in the biown-out areas, one 
of the only places where the dot pattern is readily visible. 

C: Straight lines appear fairly crisp, given the muted 
lighting in the shot. 

Panorama — installing fee software requires 
either using the Digital PhotoLab application 
or digging around on the CD-ROM until you 
find the installers. Also, there seems to be a 
conflict wife FileMaker 3. and fee printer. 

FileMaker 4.0 works fine, though. 

The Stylus Photo EX is a great printer if 
you print a lot of bitmapped images — espe- 
cially, as fee name implies, photographs. It’s 
inexpensive, quiet, and has very high print 
quality . — David Reynolds

Civil War, and the civil rights movement are 
extensively documented, the material gets 
mighty sketchy over the last generation. 

Meanwhile, the coverage is heavily 
slanted toward sports and literature. We get 
a detailed biography of Tiger Woods — and 
even Mike Tyson’s recent ear-biting 
escapade is deemed worthy of inclusion^ — 
but rap music. Spike Lee, and George 
Clinton don’t exist. The Million Man March 
and the whole Rodney King controversy get 
a sentence each, but author Cornel West 
warrants an entire essay for writing about 
the Los Angeles riots. We, Nat Himer is 
probably a more significant historical figure

than Tina Himer, but the arbitrary nature of 
the post-sixties coverage is even more dis- 
tressing than its scantiness. 

For historical matters, the disc should 
serve as a decent reference. The biographi- 
cal features are chock-full of detail, and the 
coverage of yesteryear’s controversies (for 
example, the outrageous lUskegee syphilis 
study) is quite good. The inclusion of mem- 
orable video and audio dips is a gratifying 
bonus, but we wish there were more than a

4X CD-ROM drive, 13-inch monitor 
capabie of thousands of coiors 








T his virtual tour of Utah’s 
famed national park is a 
good example of how the oft- 
raahgned virtual reality tech- 
nology can create multimedia 
magic, letting you pan, scan, 
and click your way through the 
scenic vistas from the comfort 
of your desktop. It’s not a sub- 
stitute for actually going, but 
just think of the tour-planning 
benefits. 

A couple of touches ease the 
problematic QuickTime VR navi- 
gation. To your left, a park map 
shows your current location and 



allows you to teleport between 
locations, while the captions 
beneath the panoramas tell you 
where a given hot spot will actu- 
ally take you (much better than 
chck and guess). Should you 
weary of aimless ambling, you 
also can step through major 
landmarks in a prefab tour. Each 
scene is accompanied by a para- 
graph or two of educational text. 
Appendixes on the park’s wild- 
life, geography, ecology, and his- 
tory make sure that you get your

W e’ve already reviewed a 
couple of earher volumes 
in the OceanLife series — ^most 
recently in July of last year — 
and the basic format hasn’t 
changed. Each disc delivers an 
hour of underwater video 
footage, chronicling the capti- 
vating cavorting of undersea 
denizens from skates to sea 
cucumbers, plus a slew of large 
and luscious still photos. 
Soothing voice-overs and movie 
clips accompany a catalog of 
submarine beasties, and for 
each featured location, you get 
a map, a selection of scenic 




photos, and a guide to especial- 
ly notable diving spots. 

This edition, focusing on the 
eastern section of the volcanic 
Ring of Fire that surrounds the 
Padfic, offers in-depth features 
on three island clusters. The 
treatment of the famed Galapa- 
gos Islands is disappointing: 
The disc gives only perfunctory 
coverj^e to star attractions such 
as the marine iguana, the giant 
land tortoise, and the lovable 
blue-footed booby. Fortunately, 
Costa Rica’s Cocos Islands are a 
better fit, and the footage of the 
mighty rays of the Revillagigedo 
Islands is fi:ankly an awesome 
sight . — Mark Simmons

TEXT PROCESSING 



DEVELOPER: Studio 405 

CONTACT: 301-270-8445, http://www.studio4Q5.com 
PRICE: $110 (SRP) 

REQUIREMENTS: Any Mac; System 7 or later (7.5 for 
drag and drop); ASCII text files 




FIND THE 
FREEWARE 
Lite version 
of Text 
Cleaner on 
The Disc. 



S imple as soap, TextCleaner is a mini- 
application that does just one thing — 
cleans crud from your ASCII text files. 
You know the crud we mean — the grimy 
page breaks, hard returns, tabs, spaces, 
email quotes, hyphens, and straight (not 
curly) quotes that always seem to soil email 
messages, text downloads, and ahen word 
processing files. You could run those dirty 
documents through your word processor’s 
find-and-replace feature all day long and in 
the end still have to scrub them by hand with 
a toothbrush, 

TextCleaner’s back-to-basics interface 
consists of a single dialog with check boxes. 
You select a document, then choose any of up 
to 20 simultaneous cleanup operations. 
TextCleaner can strip away multiple spaces 
and returns; delete line spaces and wrap text; 
remove spaces before and after tabs and 
hyphens; change certain patterns of hyphens 
and spaces to en or em dashes; and add the 
correct marks for inch and foot measure- 
ments. Some of the cleanups are standard 
stuff that most word processors can do; but 
others, such as those involving the proper 
formatting of dates and measurements, are 
pretty smart and will save you real work. And 
TextCleaner does them in the right order, so 




THOSE EXTRA RETURNS and spaces make this 
a job for TextCleaner.

irs NOT BON AMI, but TextCleaner will scrub your documents clean of text crud. 



each cleanup interferes as little as possible 
with the next. (Advice: Examine the dirty doc- 
ument carefully before you use TextCleaner. 
You’re likely to want to change the default 
settings for cleanup actions.) 

Of course, there’s such a thing as being 
too simple, and TextCleaner does err in that 
direction. Stuff you’d expect to be able to 
do, such as actually seeing your documents 
from within the program — ^well, forget it. 
You have to run TextCleaner alongside your 
word processor and pop back and forth, 
opening and closing the doc each time. 
That’s hard on the back. Likewise, you’ll be 
putting elbow grease into converting files to 
ASCII in the first place, because TextCleaner 
won’t do that for you, either. 




VOILA! HERE IS the document, all spic-and- 
span for your visual pleasure. 



Custom Clean 



If you clean lots of similar docs, make your 
own TextCleaner preset for batch jobs. Click 
Show Presets In the TextCleaner window, then 
click the Name and Define buttons for one of 
the existing presets to customize it. 



Finally, sometimes you have an awful 
lot of cleaning to do, and TextCleaner has 
some limitations when it comes to really 
big jobs. The program does provide a util- 
ity that automatically cleans any number of 
files you drop into it. But when you do a 
batch cleaning, you can’t specify individ- 
ual settings for docs, nor can you save 
them to another folder or rename them. 
(When you’re batch cleaning, put related 
docs in one folder and rename them 
ahead of time.) And TextCleaner is not 
commodity priced: $110 puts it out of the 
range of regular cleaning persons. 

Despite its limitations, TextCleaner can 
certainly save you a ton of scrubbing. It’ll 
make your text brighter and your docu- 
ments whiter . — Steve Anzovin 



GOOD NEWS; Quickly cleans extra- 
neous text characters from ASCII 
docs. Tackles tough jobs such as 
smart quotes and measurement ma 
BAD NEWS: You can’t see the docs you’re working 
on within the program. No batch processing con- 
trol. Only works on ASCII.

Some people think that Norton Utilities for Macintosh is the 
most advanced troubleshooting utility in the world. 




Not quite. 



TechTool Pro 2 checks more aspects of your Macintosh 
than any other utility available. Besides repairing and 
recovering damaged drives (including those with the new 
HFS+ format), you can also test all those other critical 
parts of your system that our famous competitor ignores 
like RAM, CPU, floppy drives, scanners, modems, internet 
connections, CD-ROM drives and much, much more. 



However, just because TechTool Pro is the most advanced 
Macintosh troubleshooting utility available doesn’t mean 
that it's difficult to use. In fact, we’ve added an easy-to- 
use interface that makes checking and fixing your Macintosh 
a snap. For the advanced user, our expert mode allows 
you to control and configure TechTool Pro in almost any 
way you wish. 



TechTool Pro 2: Because you've got better things to do with your time than waste it on a broken computer.

Mac. This splendiferous software studio 
includes full MTOI sequencing and editing, 
hard-disk recording, real-time audio pro- 
cessing, mix-down automation, and score 
layout and printing capabilities. 

The package includes two print manu- 
als, a CD containing two additional PDF 
manuals, and an in-depth tutorial movie 
demonstrating the basic features and 
operations of the program. Since Cubase 
is complex, it’s nice to have this wealth of 
well-written material available. (You 
always read the manuals, don’t you?)

drums, rhythm parts, or anything else you 
like directly to your hard drive, and then 
let your creative urges take over. As with 
any digital-audio creation, the more hard 
disk space and RAM you have, the more 
tracks you can record and the better 
everything works. Once your files are on 
the drive, you can edit mistakes, correct 
your pitch, and loop sections. Cubase goes 
out of its way to make sure that most audio 
edits are nondestructive, so your original 
take exists intact, somewhere. 

Add MIDI tracks to your arrangement 
and quantize to move the notes automati- 
cally toward the nearest beat of a prede- 
fined groove, metronomic tempo, or the 
tempo map you made, so everything 
grooves together. The editor windows 



Drum Loop Tranceformation 




Cubase VST gives you the power to transform a mono drum loop into 
your own crunchy electronic groove, to disassemble individual hits, to 
assign each drum sound its own location, and to produce your own EQ 
and effects for each new track. 






1 First you have to get a 
drum loop into Cubase. 
Listen to an audio track 
with the AppleCD Audio Player. 
Use the freeware program 
GrabAudio to select the track 
and set the timings. 



2 Back in Cubase, using the Movie 
Track Functions pop-up, choose 
Open Movie and find the file you 
just created. Using the same pop-up, save 
the file, and then choose Export Audio. 
Name the new file and use the Selection 
menu to either Export or Convert To 
MovieTrack’s Rate. 



Select a new audio track. 
Select Import Audio. Double- 
click the track to reveal the 
wave form. Line up the beats with the 
bar numbers by changing the tempo in 
Transport Bar. Create a two-bar loop. 
Set channel to Any. 



Select Dynamic Events in the 
View pop-up (Edit window), 
then change Volume to M- 
Points from the Volume pop-up. Next, 
choose Snip M-Points from the Do 
pop-up. Each hit is now a separate 
sound. Isn’t It fun to get to know your 
groove so intimately?

allow an amazing degree of control, from 
the most minute tick (384th of a beat) to 
every MIDI event in your song. The 
Interactive Phrase Synthesizer creates new 
music modeled from existing MIDI tracks 
and generates complicated arpeggios and 
other ingeniously designed variations of 
your music. 

Style Tracks, another innovative fea- 
ture, lets you create accompaniment pat- 
terns. These mimic features on the organs 
you hear in malls, where playing a chord 
sets up a whole rhythmic pattern on which 
you can improvise (you can also use one 
of several accompaniment patterns includ- 
ed on the CD). The only difference here is 
that you can use any of your MIDI devices 
to create your own patterns, making them 
more musically interesting and hip than 
the old standby beguine or samba 
rhythms. You can set up eight variations, 
which you trigger from the lower octave of 
your MIDI keyboard, and perform them 
live or record them as MIDI events. You 
can really wail with some new house or 
techno patterns here. 

Once all your material is recorded on 
the tracks and edited, then the mixing 
processes can balance levels, adjust the 
equahzation (up to four separate bands of 
fully parametric EQ per channel), pan the 
signal, and add effects. The window dis- 
play emulates a real studio-type mixing 
board, and all parameters — including 
faders, buttons, knobs, EQs, and effects — 
can be automated for that perfect mix. The 
VST Plugin concept is another bonus. The 
package includes excellent reverbs, a fuzz 
box, a chromatic tuner, a binaural speak- 
er simulator, and more. These look and 
operate just as their hardware counter- 
parts do — including a graphic power 
switch that you must turn on to begin 




IN THE KEY EDIT WINDOW, you can hear, add, and delete notes and change their position. The Controller 
Display under the grid allows you to edit continuous events such as velocity, volume, pitch bend, and other 
controller data. 



operations — except that you access the 
controls with your mouse. It’ll be a long 
time before this system becomes obsolete. 
Other manufacturers and individuals are 
stretching the sound barriers, creating 
new Plugins to ensure that the latest sonic- 
effect tool is always available. There are 
already hundreds out there. 

But wait, there’s more. You can lay out 
and print the score of any or all your MIDI 
parts using the Score Editor. You can even 
change or write new passages in that win- 
dow. What more could you ask for? 

Do you need to write and sync music to 
a QuickTime movie or another external 
device? Cubase sync options include 
SMPTE, MIDI Time Code, and MMC linking 
with existing music or tape. If you don’t 
need them, you probably won’t even know 
they’re there, but if you’re a professional 



creating movie scores or adding tracks to 
an existing piece of music, these features 
are pure gold. 

Since Cubase is so deep, Steinberg offers 
unlimited free tech support; however, you 
have to make a toll call to Southern 
California. Cubase’s wealth of features and 
well-designed integration make it an inspir- 
ing and affordable tool for musical neophytes 
as well as ^tos.—Jtidy Munsen 



GOOD NEWS: Powerful MIDI and 
audio file recording software. 

Expandable real-time Plugin effects. 

Score layout and printing capabilities.

(D/DVD Drive TuneUp 1.0 



DISK & FILE 



COMPANY: Software Architects 
CONTACT: 800-863-9297 or 425-487-0122,

SCSI CD-ROM drive 

S oftware Architects promises you “the 
speed you want from the drive you 
have” with its new CD/DVD Drive Hme- 
Up, a package consisting of an extension (to 
replace the Apple CD-ROM extension), an 
application for setting cache options, and an 
Audio CD Remote controller for listening to 
music discs. If this constitutes a tune-up, 
we’d hate to see a car crash. 

The CD/DVD TuneUp INIT acts as a dri- 
ver for over 100 CD-ROM drives, but it 
currently supports only two DVD drives, 
and then only in data and audio mode 



(there’s no player for watching movies). 
Another drawback is that CD/DVD TuneUp 
works only with SCSI drives, not with 
increasingly common IDE drives. Worse 
still, when it loads at start-up, the exten- 
sion spends a maddening 25 seconds 
looking for drives. 

You need the application only for setting 
up the caches that supposedly increase disc- 
read performance by keeping recently 
requested data in memory or in an invisible 
hard drive file. In real-world testing the 
caches often substantially hurt performance 
on initial reads and offered little benefit dur- 
ing subsequent reads. 

The best component is the pedestrian 
Audio CD Remote, which provides basic 
audio CD control features: volume, track, 
scan, play, pause, stop, and eject. 

If you use a variety of third-party CD- 
ROM drives, forget about CD/DVD Drive 




THESE CACHES ARE SUPPOSED TO speed 
things up, but in reality they often make read- 
ing from CD-ROMs slower; even when they do 
work, the improvement isn’t noticeable. 



HineUp and buy FWB Software’s CD-ROM 
ToolKit (see review, Dec/97, p.63). It 
doesn’t boost performance much, but it 
costs the same, supports a far wider range 
of drives (including almost every DE and 
SCSI drive on the market), and comes with 
a nifty CDT Equalizer for tweaking audio 
playback . — Owen W. Linzmayer 



GOOD NEWS: Handies mulUdisc 
changers. BAD NEWS: Limited DVD 
support. No IDE support. Long 
delay at start-up. Cache often harms 




performance.

T he newest CD-mastering drive from 
Yamaha sets the industry standard in 
speed, reliability, and ease of use, even if 
its full name — the CRW4260TXPM — is more 
than a mouthful. Not only does the 
CRW4260TXPM ftmction like a regular CD 
burner, it also handles rewritable media, 
making backups and multiple edits conve- 
nient. Included is Adaptec’s Toast mastering

different types of CD formats. 

The drive reads at 6x and writes normal 
CD-Rs at 4X and rewritable CD-RWs at 2X, 
making this one of the fastest CD burners 
available. A fiill (D at 4X speed takes just 
under 20 minutes to master, while a full CD at 
2X takes almost 40 minutes. And now that

blank CDs cost about 
$2 or less purchased in quantify, using 
them for just about everything is cost effective. 
When it comes to archiving, CDs are much 
more reliable than tape drives, and though 
their capacity is smaller, you can get about 30 
CDs for the price of one tape. The only incon- 
venience is having to find your data on sepa- 
rate CDs rather than on one tape. 

The CRW4260TXPM also works well as a 
regular CD drive. If you’ve ever had to eject 
your favorite audio CD regretfully in order to 
use another CD, you’ll love putting your audio 
CD in the CRW4260TXPM and changing CDs

The only drawback of the CRW4260TXPM 
is that it doesn’t come with a SCSI cable. It 
serves both the Mac and PC, so you need a dif- 
ferent cable depending on your system. It 
would be better to have a drive ready to go out 
of the box without having to worry about find-

TESTSIEGER 



We haven taken Voodoo just this little bit further. In fact VillageTronic is the first and only hardware developer on the planet to make 
the impossible happen: We tamed the insanely fast Voodoo hardware and forced it’s output into a 2D window. Yes you’re right! 
3D Overdrive is the only way to get every important 3D API you want and need in one board. Period. 



• RAVE for your favorite 3D apps and games, 

• GLIDE for incredible graphics with games as well as 

• OpenGL to be prepared for whatever the future will hold. 

So if your beloved WinTel buddy is around again, why not driving him nuts by showing off your new hardware? Oh and by the way 
please don’t forget to tell him that 3D Overdrive is -of course- ... MacOS only! 

What do the industry pundits say? 

"3D Overdrive is the oniy 3Dfx card on the Mac that actualiy works!" 

says Brian Greenstone, Engineer of the QuickdrawSD developer team at Apple Computer, Inc. and CEO of Pangea Software. 

Expect the impossible from the Masters of Voodoo ... to be continued ...

G ood news for fans of 
the popular television 
series The X-Piles. Fox 
Interactive has just released a CD- 
ROM adventure-mystery based on 
the program. 

The game puts you in the role 
of Seattle FBI agent Craig Willmore; 
you’re working on a typical case. You’ll 
interact with special agents Scully and Mulder, played by 
stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny, through 
HyperBole’s patented VirtualQnema, a new technology 
that allows you to dick on items and call up a dialog box 
in the middle of full-motion video. 

Chris Carter, creator of the TV series, is working 
closely with Fox Interactive developers to make sure the 
game maintains the aura of mystery and intrigue so 
prevalent in the hit show. 

So if you want to try your hand as an FBI agent 
exaniining mysteries of the paranormal, X-Files marks 
the spot. Both PC and Power Mac versions should 
appear on store shelves this summer, perhaps by the 
time you read X\As.—John Lee

i n the mood for black piracy and some 
good old-fashioned skullduggery? Get 
ready for RedJack: Revenge of the 
Brethren, an action-adventure title due to hit 
stores in August. RedJack, perhaps the 
scummiest pirate ever to hoist a cup of grog, 
has been dead for 17 years, betrayed by 
one of his own men. Now it’s time for 
RedJack’s crew, aka the Brethren, to 
reassemble, find the traitor, unearth their 
dead captain’s pirate treasure, and sail off 
into the Caribbean sunset. 

The fighting is fun. Old Lyle, a snaggle- 
toothed, foul-mouthed member of the origi- 



nal crew, will show you how to 
parry, how to cut and slash, and 
how to duck thrown objects. 
Learn well: You’ll need all three 
skills to fight cutthroats, assas- 
sins, and ghosts. You’ll visit exotic 
ports of call in this rough and 
rowdy adventure. You’ll even 
encounter tons of adventures,

Keep Your Mac Virus-Free 

by Kevin Savetz 



C omputer viruses don’t seem 
like a big deal — that is, until 
your Mac catches one. Once 
that h^^pens, a virus may slowly 
corrupt your fQes, print strange 
messages, rename your hard 
drive, or even attempt to erase 
your disks. Relatively few viruses 
affect Macs: Macintosh users 
need to dodge somewhere 
around 55 viruses, compared to 
the thousands of strains 
beset DOS and Windows users. 
Don’t let that number lull you 
into believing that your computer 
is immune from infection. It only 
takes one virus — ^passed from a 
friend’s floppy, downloaded from 
the Internet, or spread over the 
office LAN — ^to trounce the pre- 
cious information stored on your 
Mac. An ounce of prevention is 
worth a pound of I-told-you-sos. 
Here are five steps to protect 
your Mac from viruses, plus one 
great Web site you should check 
out for more virus information. 



Disinfectant 



mm 



Disinfectant 3.7.1 

Please read the "Quick Start " section of the manual 
before running Disinfectant for the first time. It vill 
tell you hov to use this program to check your system 
for viruses^ remove any viruses which you may have on 
your system^, and protect your system against future 
infections. To read the manual^ select the "Disinfectant 
Help" command in the Apple menu. 

WARNING : Disinfectant does NOT recognize the 
Microsoft Word and Excel macro viruses. Please see 
the "Introduction" section of the manual for more 
information on this problem.

1 Choose Antivirus Software 

First things first: To keep your Mac free 
from infection, you’ll need an antivirus utility. 
You can go two ways: Buy a commercial 
antivirus program, or choose a free one. If a 
free inoculation sounds like the way to go, 
Disinfectant (version 3.7.1) is the de facto stan- 
dard. It does the basic job of scanning your 
system for viruses and removing any nasties it 
finds, but it doesn’t cover all of the bases. 
Commercial antivirus programs tend to offer 
niceties lacking in bare-bones Disinfectant, 
and, sadly. Disinfectant will not be updated 
beyond its current version. Contenders in the 
commercial category are Symantec’s Norton 
Antivirus 5,0 for Macintosh (http://www.syman- 
tec.com/sam), Virex (http://www.drso!omon. 
com/products/virex/index.cfm), Dr. Solomon’s 
Antivirus Toolkit (http://www.drsolomon.com/ 
products/avtk/ps_mac.html), and McAfee’s 
VirusScan (http://www.mcafeemall.com/mall/ 
mcafee/vsmacxfact. html) ,

2 Check Your System for 
Viruses — and Get Rid of 

Them After you’ve purchased or down- 
loaded your antivirus utility, use it regularly. It 
thoroughly searches your Mac’s hard disk for 
telltale signs of viruses. If it finds a virus, the 
software removes it — hopefully before the virus 
damages your precious data. Like that roll of 
dental floss you’ve pushed to the back of the 
medicine cabinet, antivirus software doesn’t 
work unless you use it often. Running a thor- 
ough scan once a month should be fine for 
most people. Run it more often if you download 
many programs or exchange lots of disks with 
your associates, or if your Mac starts to act 
wonky. Every one of the programs listed above 
includes an extension or control panel that 
watches constantly for nefarious virus activity, 
even between scans. Make sure you enable 
that function for maximum protection.

3 Keep Your Antivirus Software Up to Date in order to 

assure that no new strains can take residence in your Mac, keep your 
antivirus software up to date. Commercial antivirus tools make this easy: Their 
makers automatically send you updates — enhancements that tell the program 
how to identify new viruses — via the Internet or snail mail. If you use the free- 
ware Disinfectant, don’t bother looking for new versions, because there won’t 
be any. You can also check with sites such as Version Tracker (http://www.ver- 
siontracker.com), which keeps track of the latest updates. Just search for the 
appropriate program or update name.

4 Trounce Annoying Macro Viruses Once and for All 

A relatively new and exceptionally annoying type of virus is the macro 
virus. Normally viruses can travel only via Infected applications. Macro viruses 
are the exception to the rule: They travel in the documents of programs with 
powerful scripting languages. Files In Microsoft Word and Excel are the most 
common macro virus hosts. Macro viruses are cross-platform — your Mac can 
catch a macro virus created on a PC. One way to deal with them is Microsoft’s 
antivirus tool, available from http://www.microsoft.com/office/antivirus.asp. 
These scripts eradicate the most common Word and Excel macro viruses. 




5 Lock Out and Back Up No antivirus software is foolproof. 

Happily, software is not your only defense. Viruses can’t infect read-only 
media. If you walk around with floppies, Jaz disks, or other removable media 
in your pocket or purse, lock them to protect them from infection when you pop 
them into others’ computers. A virus can’t infect a medium it can’t write to. Your 
ultimate defense — and you’ve heard this a thousand times — is to back up your 
data regularly. Don’t just keep one backup of the most recent version; instead, 
rotate between several sets of back-ups. Keep them somewhere safe. Hide 
them in a place where no one ever goes. Put them in the pantry with your cup- 
cakes. That way, even if your computer does manage to get Infected, you can 
be sure that you’ve got at least one safe copy of your data. 

Kevin Saveb (http://www.savetz.com) is the keeper of Trivial.Net— trivia just for 
nerds— at http://www.trivial.net. 




great place to find the latest information on Macintosh virus* 
\es is at Mac Virus (http://www.macvirus.com). This Web^site, 
maintained by Susan Lesch, contains a ton of useful information 
about Macintosh system viruses, macro viruses, and other annoy- 
ing pests. If you're looking for up-to-date virus inforitiatibnv check 
here early in your search. Mac Virus has an interesting article on 
the recently discovered Autostart 9805 Worm, which is the first 
worm to infect the Macintosh. To combat the Autostart 98G6 Worm, 
Mac Virus recommends that you turn off the Enable CD-ROM 
AutoPlay in the QuickTime settings control panel. You can see if 
your Mac is infected by using the Finder’s Find command to look 
for invisible files named DB, BD^ or DELDB at your hard drive’s root 
leyet or those named Desktop : Spooler, Desktop Frintr 
Spooler or DELDesktop Print Spooler in the Extensions fdlder. 
Files named Desktop DB and Desktop Printer Spooler are legiti- 
mate files. The Autostart 9806 Worm affects PowerPC Macs only.

GRAPHICS & SOUND 



Unleash the Power of QuarkXPress 4.0 Style Sheets 

by Elyse Chapman 



T he biggest reason for using style sheets in 
QuarkXPress is the monstrous amount of 
time and toil they save, but even so, pro- 
fessionals often don’t take the time and trouble 
to set them up properly. If it helps, think of a 
style sheet as a name in a palette. The name 
carries a whole bunch of instructions that exe- 
cute when you click on it with text selected. 
You don’t have to mouse around to this or that 
menu or palette, changing every little attribute 
spec by spec. In less than a second, style sheets 
carry out detailed text formatting that would 
take an eternity to set manually. 

Style sheets save you even more time and 
trouble when you need to go back and edit 
your text. With decently designed style sheets, 
you can add new text and instantly format it to 
match the rest. Should you need to change a 
font or size setting in text that has a lot of local 
formatting, you can edit just certain style sheets 
and watch your changes ripple through your 
document like magic. If you’re using Quark- 
XPress 4.0’s new book feature on a large pro- 
ject, you can synchronize your project so that 
the style sheet changes you make in one docu- 
ment will be reflected in its sibling documents. 
If you’re a Photoshop 4.0 user, it might help to 
think of style sheets as a bit like Photoshop 
actions — ^formatting instructions assigned to a 
name in the palette are applied automatically to 
selected text. 

Here’s how we worked with style sheets to 
format a mildly fussy little table that recently 
came our way. It had siblings that needed iden- 
tical treatment, so creating and using the style 
sheet settings from the first table saved us a 
whole lot of time and effort, not to mention our 
overall sanity. 

Previous versions of QuarkXPress only 
offered par^aph-level style sheets. Version 
4.0 introduces character-level style sheets. In 
4.0, paragraph styles (predictably) affect para- 
graph formatting: alignment, indents, hyphen- 
ation and justification settings, space before 
and after paragraphs, drop caps, leading, 
keeping a paragraph with the next one, keep- 
ing lines together, rules above or below, and 
tabs, with all of their fussy settings. Character 
styles, on the other hand, are concerned with 
the attributes of individual characters or 
words: font, size, color and shade, scaling, 
tracking, baseline shift, and styling (bold, 
underlined, subscript, and so forth).

The prospect of manually formatting a complex table such as this one 
is daunting. Fortunately, we have style sheets to help us out. 

after 

By first formatting the table and then creating style 



sheets from that formatting, we have the templates 
to format the rest of the tables swiftly. It takes practi- 
cally no time at all— including adjusting the vertical

I The easiest way to create a new style sheet is to select some text that 
has the formatting you want the style sheet to carry (for paragraph 
style sheets you just place the cursor in the paragraph), press and hold 
down the control key, and click in the Style Sheets palette. Click in the 
upper part of the palette to create a paragraph style sheet, or in the lower 
part for a character style sheet. Choose New from the pop-up menu.

3 It’s easiest to create the character style sheet first, and then apply that 
character style to the paragraph style(s) that will use It. Creating the 
character style first allows you to specify It at the same time as all the 
other attributes of the new paragraph style sheet. It saves the step of 
returning to the paragraph style sheet dialog box to specify what charac- 
ter style you want to apply in that paragraph style.

5 Now that you’ve finished the style sheets, formatting the table is a 
breeze. Just select the text to style, and then choose the proper style

4 Following the above steps, we’ve created character and paragraph 
style sheets from the formatted text. Now we need one more char- 
acter style sheet for the smaller text used in line 6 (the word Limiting). 
Select just the affected word, create the style sheet (naming it Table 
Body Small), and apply it to the selection. The Style Sheets palette 
shows the paragraph style assigned to this single-line paragraph, but a 
plus sign now appears next to the style sheet name. This plus sign indi- 
cates that— since we applied the Table Body character style to text in 
TOrifice paragraph style— this text strays from TOrifice’s formatting. If 
we select the word Orifice, to which we haven’t applied the new char- 
acter style sheet, the plus sign disappears. In short, the plus sign means 
that something in the selected text or paragraph deviates from the specs 
of the assigned style sheet.

COMPATIBILITY 

How to Share Your Printer 

by Buz Zoller 



T he original LaserWriters from Apple 
were network printers, which was both 
a blessing and a curse. The curse was 
that you also had to buy expensive LocalTalk 
network boxes in order to use the print- 
ers — no straight serial connection here. 
The blessing was that once you had pur- 
chased the proper network boxes and 
cables, any Mac on the network could use 
these printers; they weren’t limited to a sin- 
gle computer. Then Apple produced a series 
of less-expensive serial printers (mainly 
inkjets but some LaserWriters as well), 
which you could hook up to only one Mac 
at a time via a serial cable. If you were used 
to previous Apple printers’ networkability, 
this limitation was frustrating. You had to 
move the files you wanted to print to the 
Mac connected to the printer. 

There is a fix for this litde shortcoming. 
A htde-known feature of Apple’s serial print- 
ers is that you can share them with other 
computers on the network, courtesy of a soft- 
ware technology called GrayShare for black- 
and-white printers and ColorShare for color 
printers. How does it accomplish this amaz- 
ing feat? It does its job by turning your Mac 



into a print server; one computer plays host 
for all the documents printed, and these 
documents can come fi’om any computer on 
the network. All print jobs go to the printer 
via the host computer. The GrayShare and 
ColorShare software doesn’t make a serial 
printer into a true network printer (like most 
LaserWriters) , because a computer needs to 
act as host. But if you have an Apple serial 
printer, share the wealth by putting it on the 
network. And the best part of all — the soft- 
ware is firee. 

So let’s say you have one of the share- 
able Apple printers. What do you need to 
set it up? First of all, you need some Macs 
connected via a network, either LocalTalk 
(with LocalTalk or the cheaper but still 
amazingly reUable PhoneNet cabling) or 
full-blown Ethernet complete with an 
Ethernet hub. You even can set up a printer 
on a two-Mac Ethernet network created by 
an inexpensive crossover cable. Once the 
network is ready to go, all you need is your 
printer, the printer software that came with 
your computer, and about 15 minutes. 
Sound too good to be true? Just follow 
along — you won’t be disappointed. 





Printing for All 



In a mere six steps, you can share your serial printer on a network. 
All you need is a printer, the software, and a few minutes. 




Confirm that your network is up and run- 
ning. Networks can be tricky, but keep 
in mind that it takes only two computers 
to make a network. Next, designate one of the 
Macs to be the host computer. This Mac must 
always be turned on, and the printer must be 
directly connected to it. Connect the printer to 
the host Mac’s printer port (although you can 
use the modem port in a pinch). 



The printer software for your printer 
model needs to be Installed on all 
1 the networked computers. If you’re 
not sure this has been done, check by look- 
ing in the Chooser for the proper print driver. 
If it’s not there, you need to install it. In the 
Sharing Setup control panel in System 7, or 
In the File Sharing control panel in Mac OS 8, 
assign each computer a name to give it an 
identity on the network. 




On each computer, confirm that the 
Printer Share extension is enabled in 
the Extensions Manager control panel 
(or In whatever other utility you use to manage 
extensions). If it isn’t enabled, reinstall the printer 
software, or better yet, custom install only the 
printer software from your system software CD. 
The current version of the Printer Share exten- 
sion is 1.1.3, although earlier versions should 
work fine. 



80 MacADDICT AUG/98 




AT THE CORE of any print server setup is the print 
server, or host. Any networked Macintosh will do. 

The host handles print jobs from other Macs on 

the network. / 




PRINTERS 



ONCE THE HOST COMPUTER has the print job spooled on its hard drive, 
it feeds the job to the shared inkjet printer. The shared printer occupies 
one of the host Mac’s serial ports.

capable of LocalTalk network- 
ing, so you don’t need 
to use ColorShare to access 
them on a network. You can 
network all other Apple 
LaserWriters (except the Laser- 
Writer SC) directly via either 
LocalTalk or Ethernet. Many 
Hewlett-Packard and Epson 
printers also have LocalTalk 
and Ethernet capabilities, bOt 
you need to check your docu^ 
mentation for details. This 
Apple sharing software works 
only with certain Apple-brand 
printers, so your mileage may 
vary if you try to use it with an 
unsupported printer.

On each computer, check the 
Chooser or the AppleTalk Control 
Strip module to make sure that 
AppleTalk is active. Open the AppleTalk 
control panel to see that the correct network 
type is selected— either Ethernet or the 
port to which your LocalTalk network is 
connected. If you don’t have an AppleTalk 
control panel, you will have a Network con- 
trol panel, in which you choose either 
Ethernet or LocalTalk. 



On the host Mac, open the Chooser. Click 
once on the appropriate printer icon in the left 
part of the window. Then select the port to 
which you’ve connected the printer on the right side. 
You also need to enable Background Printing, Next, 
click the Setup button, and a window will open. Click 
the Share this Printer checkbox, and type in a name 
for the printer (it can be anything). You can password- 
protect access to the shared printer if you wish, which 
can help control who prints to your printer. Click OK 
when you're done, and the printer is now shared. 



To use the printer from the nonhost com- 
puters, open the Chooser on the Mac 
from which you want to print, and select 
the printer driver on the (eft side of the Chooser 
window. (Be sure to use the same printer driver 
the host machine uses). You’ll see an extra choice 
on the right side— it’s the name you gave the 
printer on the other computer. Select it, close the 
Chooser, and you now are ready to print. Pretty 
cool, huh? Be aware that your new setup is not 
going to win any speed contests, but it works!

DEVELOPMENT 



Mercury Center 
Deconstruction: part 2 

by Joseph O. Holmes 



The Page: The Mercury Center welcome page 
(http://www.sjmercury.com), which greets visitors to the Web site of the 
San Jose Mercury News, 

The Designer: Albert Poon, chief designer. JavaScript by Nick Heinle, 
Albert Poon, and Tim Colson. 

The Tools: HTML editing on the Macs is done with Bare Bones Software’s 
BBEdit (http://www.barebones.com). 

Smart Design: The site is presented against a white background, which 
not only gives it a clean, newspaperlike appearance, but makes it easy for the 
designers to add graphical elements that blend in seamlessly. 



JavaScript 

Last month, we looked at some of the 
JavaScript behind the yellow triangles that 
magically appear when a visitor’s mouse 
pointer passes over the links along the left 
side of the page. We showed you some of 
the script hiding inside the header, between 
<SCRIPT=”JavaScript”> and </SCRlPT> 
tags, which set up variables and image 
pointers. 

This month, let’s view the page’s source 
and take a look at the two event handlers 
that control the action, onMouseover and 
onMouseout. 

These JavaScript components are put 
inside a hyperlink tag to control what hap- 
pens when the mouse pointer passes over 
the link. Here’s a simplified version of the 
code at each link: 

<IMG SRC*Vg»'apHcs/spacer.gir> 

<A 

HREF"''http://www.mercurycenter.coin/business/" 
onMouseover » "img_onarrowCpb'); 
return true'" onMouseout = "img_offarrowCpb')r 
return true">Business & Stocks</A> 



Event handlers such as these 
are permitted outside the 
<Script> tags because most 
browsers (Navigator 2.0 and 
later or Internet Explorer 3.0 and 
later) know how to Interpret them 
directly. 

On the Mercury Center page, 
the onMouseover handler calls 
the function img_onarrow(*pb’), 
defined in the JavaScript in the 
header, which pulls up the yellow 
arrow image. The onMouseout 
command calls the function 
img_offarrow(‘pb'), pulling up 
the blank image. 

For more on handlers, pick 
up a good JavaScript book such 
as JavaScript: The Definitive 
Guide, second edition, by David 
Flanagan (O'Reilly & Associates, 
1997).

The look of this navigation bar matches that 
of the other bars on the site, but it wasn’t cre- 
ated with tiny lines set around a text-based 
hyperlink. Instead, because it appears on all 
of Mercury’s pages, the designers created it 
as a single graphic hyperlinked with image- 
map code. 

If you’ve forgotten how to make an 
image map, take a moment to look over the 
HTML on the Mercury page (search for the 
word toolbar in the source code to find it). 



<A HREF=>"graphics/toolbar.map"> 

<IM6 SRC="graphics/toQlbar.gir WI0TH-"420" 
HEIGHT*"18" ISMAP usemap»"#toolbar"> 

</A> 

A hyperlink anchor is coded around the 
toolbar image. Inside the anchor, the ISMAP 
attribute tells the browser to treat the image 
as an image map. The usemap attribute 
points to a label elsewhere in the page, 
where the code sets up the shapes Inside 
the image and the actual links. 



<area shape=rect href- 'http://wvw. mercury 

center.com/resources/map/" 

coords»170,0,220,l7> 

The map shapes and links to which the 
usemap attribute point are placed Inside a 
pair of map tags, <map name = "toolbar” > 
and </map>, set out of the way at the very 
bottom of the page. 

By the way, the Mercury designers do 
include ALT tag titles in all their images, but 
we’ve omitted these for simplicity.

Layout 

The Mercury Center’s designers created the Welcome 
Page’s magazinelike layout by placing all of the text 
and graphics into a sophisticated table with invisible 
borders. 

<table width-590 border-0 cellpadding=0 celtspadng-0> 

The designers set the table width to exactly 590 pix- 
els to guarantee that the layout will be consistent in every 
browser and every monitor size. For example, this tactic 
keeps the text lined up under the ad banner and the hor- 
izontal navigation bar. 



<td align-center colspan»3> 



The first table cell on the page contains the ad ban- 
ner and a Jobs/Homes/Cars navigation graphic. The 
colspan attribute makes that cell span all three columns 
of the table so it fits across the top of the page. 

The rest of the page’s intricate layout is created by set- 
ting tables inside tables inside tables. To see all the table 
components clearly, check instruction 3 in the sidebar 
Deconstruction at Home.

0 I downloaded QuickTime 3.0 (http:// 
www.apple.com/quicktime), but haven’t yet 
upgraded to QuickTime Pro. The first time I 
launch MoviePlayer each day, up pops a 
reminder begging me to purchase 
QuickTime Pro. Is there a way to turn off 
this nagging message? 

A Here’s the solution you seek, courtesy of 
ResExcellence, a wonderftii site for ResEdit 
users (http://www.resexcellence.com). Open 
the Date & Tune control panel and advance 
Current Date forward to the year 2000. dose 
the control panel and immediately launch 
MoviePlayer. When the alert box appears ask- 
ing if you want to update, click Later, then quit 
MoviePlayer. Reopen the Date & Time control 
panel and return Current Date to the correct 
setting. Now you can forget about the 
MoviePlayer reminders for a few years, at 
which time you’ll be ready to upgrade to 
QuickTime 2000. 



Oi I recently bought a used PowerBook 
165c. It has System 7.1 installed; however, 
the floppy disks that came with it are for 
System 6.0.7. Is there any place, such as 
Apple or a reseller, that might sell older sys- 
tem disks? 

A Most retailers carry only the latest version 
of the Mac OS (at the time of this writing that’s 
Mac OS 8.1). However, the i^ple Software 
Updates site (http://www.mfo.apple.coni/ 
swupdates) has links for ordering recently 
discontinued packages, plus you can down- 
load free disk images for System 6.0.3, 6.0.5, 
6.0.8, 7.0, and 7.0.1. If you want to get really 
retro, contact Sun Remarketing (800-821- 
3221 or 801-755“3360, http://www.sunrem 
.com). These guys have everything dating 
back to System 3.2 for the Mac 512K. 

0 One thing I find very annoying about 
Mac OS 8 is the spring-loaded folder fea- 
ture. Yeah, it’s cool for novices, but it’s so — 
well, unsophisticated. I used PopupFolder

allows you to specify characteristics of its

butt; however, version 2.0 doesn’t work on 
Mac OS 8, I relied heavily on 
PopupFolder’s ability to create hler- ■ 3 
archical menus showing me the con- 
tents of folders 



accustomed. Alas, the current version of 
PopupFolder doesn’t work under Mac OS 8, 
and ASD has no plans to offer an upgrade, but 
an alternative does much the same thing. 

FinderPop is a control panel from Tax- 
lough O’Connor (http://bounce.to/turly) 
that extends Mac OS 8’s contextual menus. It 
has options for allowing contextual menus 
to appear tvithout you having to hold down 
the control key, and for greatly enhancing 
navigation through standard open and save 
dialog boxes. But the feature that you will 
most appreciate is the one that — ^just like 
good oi’ PopupFolder — builds hierarchical 
menus showing the contents of a selected 
folder or volume. Best of all, FinderPop is 
absolutely free.

and volumes, 
and can’t find 
anything simi- 
lar for Mac OS 
8. Got any ideas? 

A Brother, I feel your pain. One thing that 
baffles me about Mac OS 8 is the way spring- 
loaded folders work. If enabled in the Finder’s 
Preferences window, spring-loaded folders 
allow you to burrow through nested folders 
on a volume without double-clicking endless- 
ly. My problem with this scheme is that it’s so 
difficult to use. 

First of all, try explaining to a novice how 
to execute one-and-a-haJf mouse clicks. First, 
you need to double-click and not release the 
mouse button after the second click. Second, 
you must keep the mouse button depressed 
the entire time. For anyone who suffers from 
repetitive strain injuries, this ain’t no picnic. 
Third, if you inadvertently open the wrong 
folder, it’s hard to figure out how to backtrack 
Fourth, if you drag the cursor off the desktop 
by mistake, all your painstakingly opened win- 
dows snap shut in an instant. Finally, the thing 
that’s most annoying about spring-loaded 
folders is that someone else had already fig- 
ured out a perfectly wonderful way of accom- 
plishing the same thing. As you mentioned, 
with PopupFolder you clicked on a volume 
and waited a second for a hierarchical menu 
to pop up right on the desktop. Burrowing 
down throu^ levels was as easy as choosing 
from the Apple Menu Items folder, a proce- 
dure to which every Mac user was already

In 1 recently downloaded a file and my 
browser said I should open It with some- 
thing that can handle a TAR file. What is 
that? I’ve never heard of it. 

A According to the good folks at Aladdin 
Systems (800-480-4011 or 408-761-6200, 
http://www.aladdinsys.com), TAR is a file 
format that Unix uses. It means that the file 
is in a tape archive format. To open such a 
file on the Mac, you need to decompress it 
with the commercial version of Stuffit 
Deluxe 4.5, because the shareware Stuffit 
Expander doesn’t have the necessary 
translation engine. 



In Whenever I run the Disk Doctor 
portion of Norton Utilities 3.5 on my 
Power Mac 7600/132, it uncovers a 
major problem involving an error in the 
catalog b-tree. This happens regardless 
of whether I’m running System 7.6, Mac 
OS 8.0, or Mac OS 8.1 . It also occurs on 
my daughter’s Power Mac 7200. It even 



B4MacADDICT AUG/98 





shows up on a totally reinitialized hard 
drive with Mac OS 8.1 and little else 
installed. What gives? 

A For help in answering this question, I 
turned to the Norton Utilities experts: Sy- 
mantec (800-445-4208 or 408-253-9600, 
http://www.symantec.com). A Symantec 
technical support representative says, “The 
catalog b-tree is one part of the ^rectory 
structure of the Macintosh. It stores the 
location of all of the files on the hard drive. 
The Mac stores info via two systems: 
Hierarchical File System (HFS) or HFS+ 
(Apple’s new version of the HFS structure 
in Mac OS 8.1). The catalog b-tree is basi- 
cally one part of the HFS structure. It is 
similar to a large filing cabinet that keeps 
track of the names and locations of all of 
your files. Since it is the structure that has 
a record of all of the files on your drive, it 
is most prone to experience corruption 
due to crashes, freezes, and system errors. 
If your computer experiences a problem in 
the file system, it is most likely in the cata- 
log b-tree. Thus users will frequently see 
that Disk Doctor is reporting catalog b-tree 
problems.” 



lA I used to have a find function in

Wunderbar. Then I updated to Mac OS 8. 
Now I have to try to remember where In

bar doesn’t work with Mac OS 8. Is there 




ACTION FILES ADDS A NUMBER of useful 
features to open and save dialog boxes, not 
the least of which Is a fully functional find

A There sure is. What you’re looking for 
is Action Files from Power On Software 
(800-344-9160 or 330-735-3116, http:// 
www.actionutilities.com). Action Files adds 
a powerful find feature to open and save 
di^og boxes, and it modifies these dialog 
boxes in many other useful ways (see our 
review, Jul/98, p58). It has taken the place 
of a half-dozen shareware and freeware 
extensions that used to clog my System 
Folder, including SuperBoomerang, Default 
Folder, Dialog View, and others. 



How do 1 clean my PowerBook 
screen? 

A If you crack open the documentation 
that came with your PowerBook, you’ll find 
the following advice from Apple: “Clean the 
computer’s outside surfaces with a damp 
(not wet) cloth. Clean the screen with soft, 
Unt-free paper or cloth and a mild glass 
cleaner. Do not spray the glass cleaner 
directly onto the screen.”

A 



By default, the Mac always displays avail- 
able volumes along the upper ri^t-hand of 
the Finder’s desktop, and until recently there 
was nothing you could do about it. However, 
there are now several freeware and share- 
ware programs — such as Desktop Icon

Nick D’Amato, and DesktopMaid by Tom 
Bovo — ^that can remember where all of your 
icons were and restore them automatically 
whenever you restart or change resolutions. 
Each utility operates a little differendy, but 
with several to choose from, one is bound to 
meet your needs. 



lA Can I add an internal 56-Kbps 
modem to my desktop Mac? 

A Internal K56flex modems come prein- 
stalled on some Power Mac 6500s and are 
available as an option on build-to-order G3 
computers. If you want to add such a 
modem to a Power Mac 6500 or G3 you 
already own, you can purchase the Apple/GV 
56 k modem (part number 652-0038) by 
contacting an Apple-authorized service 
provider. Sometime this summer Apple 
plans to offer owners of these modems an 
update that complies with the new V.90 stan- 
dard for universal 56-Kbps support. 

i^ple currendy does not offer K56flex 
modems for owners of Power Macs and 
Performas in the 4400, 5400, 5500, 6200, 
6300, 6400, and 6500 series. Nor does Apple 
plan to update the i^ple Telecom software for 
the internal GeoPort modem or the external 
GeoPort Telecom Adapter beyond the V.34 
standard (33.6 Kbps) the latest version sup- 
ports. ./^ple Telecom 3.1.1 is available from 
the ^ple Software Updates site (htft)://www. 
info.apple.com/swupdates), and is on the 
Mac OS 8 CD in the CD Extras folder. If you 
have one of these older Mac models with a 
slower internal modem, to upgrade you must 
remove both the modem and the plastic cap 
covering the modem port on the rear of the 
computer, then attach an external modem and 
install the accompanying software.

Us 

• Our salespeople are some of the most 
knowledgeable in the business. They’re not 
order takers and they don’t push for a one 
time sale. After all, over half our business - 
comes from repeat and referred customers! 

• We have 800 line tech support for as long 
as you own your computer! 

• We load over 160 megabytes of useful 
software on every computer. 

• Every Mac system is thoroughly bench 
tested, and then personally verified and 
approved by your specific consultant. 

• live will customize your computer any way 
you need, and always with an exact descrip- 
tion as to what we’re including. 

• We give you a free mouse pad with every 
system. 

• We have no voice mail- there’s always a 
human being on the other end of the line- 
for tech, sales and management. 

• We answer the phone: ^‘how can we help 
you?” not “may I take your order?” 

• We live in Oregon, where there is no sales 
tax and the people are friendly and polite! 

• Even customized systems usually ship 
within 24-48 hours. 

• Government and corporate purchase 
orders nomially approved the same day. 

• We take trade-ins, and we sell every style 
of quality Macintosh possible. 

• We have competitive prices on over 
20, two Macintosh items. 

• All we do is Macintosh- our company is 
run entirely on Macs. 

• We offer you choices: buy over the phone, 
over the internet, or in person, all with the 
same great prices and super service! 

Them 

• They sell you a box. 

• If you have a problem, they tell you to call 
the manufacturer. And then you get to wait 
on hold for a long, long time.

When drawing up plans 
for Apple’s fashionable 
new consumer comput- 
er, the iMac, members of 
Apple’s Industrial Design 
team ditched boring 
beige in favor of uncon- 
ventional colors they’re 
calling Bondi Blue 
(named after a hip 
Australian beach) and 
Ice. Although no one’s 
talking about which 
colors didn’t make the 
cut, we’ve got the inside 
j scoop on a few of the 
rejected color castoffs:

“I’d be so bold as to say that 10 years from now, personal computers would be able 
not only to recognize speech but to understand it as humans do when they are con- 
versing with each other.’’— Bill Gates on the future of computers, at an April technolo- 
gy conference. 

“My confidence in Netscape has never been higher.” — Netscape co-founder Marc 
Andreessen, who registered to sell 25 percent of his stock after the company 
announced an $88 million loss.

Bill Gates isn’t the only one

“We’ve been hoping and waiting for this strategy for over three years. This is 
absolutely the right way to move Mac OS forward. It will be a pleasure to quickly

Meyrowitz at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference.

Its 



pfltre was XLRS’s MACh 
Speed G3 220. Although the 
processor on this card is 
rated at 220MHz, its default 
settings can push it to 
260MHz. In some of our 
tests it managed to beat 
cards rated at 250MHz/' as 
reported by MacUser UK. 



“I feel XLRS's entry into the 
market with lower priced 
models (and with far more 
adjustability than anything 
on the market at that time) 
helped bring prices down 
which benefited all Mac 
owners," reported Michael
