BrickHouse:'The Network Firewall Configuration' for MacOS X $25.00

eeShutdown V 1.0 OSX
eeShutdown is an application capable of scheduling the computer to shutdown. With eeShutdown you can tell the computer to shutdown or reboot in a countdown of the minutes you want, or even specify the exact hour and minutes of the day you want it to shut off. Requires Macos X 10.0.0 Free

Egg Timer OSX
EggTimer 3.0 will help you organize yourself while you sit in front of your computer. You can set reminders to go off in 5 minutes from now (Relative), or at 6 p.m. (Absolute).EggTimer is limited in that it can only track reminders for as long as its open, and it will not save them from one session to the next.

Pretty Scroll
Pretty Scroll is a control panel that animates scrolling. When scrolling through a document, it is sometimes hard to find the last point you viewed, especially if it was located near the end of the document. Pretty Scroll makes it easier. Because the scrolling process is animated, you can follow the movement and find the last point easily. $10.00

Instead, the client is downloaded and executed by the Java Virtual Machine distributed with your browser.The applet can also be downloaded for use on your personal page. $14.28

VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. It is, in essence, a remote display system which allows you to view a computing 'desktop' environment not only on the machine where it is running, but from anywhere on the Internet and from a wide variety of machine architectures. Free


Security Alert!

Tip O' the Month


MacOS X has startup and shutdown buttons on the login screen. If you fear you might accidentally hit one of these buttons, you can disable them:

  1. Login as an administrator (you need to have administrator privileges).
  2. Open System Preferences.
  3. Click on Login.
  4. Click on the Login Window tab.
  5. Look at the lock icon in the lower left of the window. If it is locked, you must unlock it by clicking on it and entering your password.
  6. Check the "Disable Restart and Shut Down buttons" box.
  7. Lock the Lock icon by clicking on it.
  8. Close the window.



Mac basics we sometimes forget

Did this one before, about 3 years ago, but needs reviewing: When they designed the Mac OS GUI interface, they put LOTS of redundancy in it. For most of the things you want to do, there is more than one way to do them. For instance, you can click on the close box to close a window, or type command-W or find and release on CLOSE in the file menu.

Now the big question: How many ways can you cause the OS to eject a floppy disk? The respondent with the most correct answers gets a free disk coupon (worth 50% off on a CDOQ). And I get to put your name and answers in this column.



My choices, only, out of hundreds of items every month. Drop me a note for YOUR favorite. Links below are either info about or actual downloads, and include commercial products, as well as shareware. These do NOT include demos or beta releases. You might check out Version Tracker for more.
