WelcomeWelcomeby Robert Paul Leitao, rleitao@atpm.comiPods GaloreThis holiday season many music lovers and computerenthusiasts were delighted to find an Apple iPod under thetree on Christmas morning. The ubiquitous MP3 player andexternal FireWire drive was a hot seller this holiday seasonwith many retailers reporting complete sell-outs of iPodinventory.Industry data also indicate that unit sales of PCs will marktheir first yearly rise during the second half of 2002 since thetech slump began. The ATPM staff will be tracking sales andearnings reports from the major PC makers as fourthcalendar quarter results are reported in January. We expectApple Computer to report brisk sales of the iPod, the 999iBook, and the new 1 GHz Titanium PowerBook.Welcome to the January 2003 issue of About This ParticularMacintosh! The release of this particular issue marks the startof our ninth calendar year of publication. What began as afun idea for a monthly Mac-based magazine has turned into averitable Mac Web institution! ATPM is one of the longestrunning Internet-based Macintosh publications incontinuing publication.The Top 10 Reasons People Read ATPMWe recently took a poll of our readership in to discover whyATPM is so popular. Below are the top ten replies to our pollquestion:Question: Why is ATPM among the longest-running andmost popular Macintosh publications on the Internet today?10. I first thought ATPM was a silly e-zine about automatedteller machines. Come to find out it’s a lot more than that so Ijust keep reading the magazine each month.9. Nostalgia, actually. A friend gave me a copy years agowhen ATPM could fit on a floppy. I lost the floppy andmisplaced the friend so I just keep reading the magazine eachmonth.8. The Welcome section. I really like the Welcome section.The guy who writes the Welcome really knows what he’stalking about so I just keep reading the magazine eachmonth.7. After nine years of publication it’s the longest continuingthing in my own life. It even outlasted my grape iMac so I justkeep reading the magazine each month.6. I can’t get them to take me off the notify list. So I justkeep reading the magazine each month.5. I had a colored iMac. ATPM is even more colorful so Ijust keep reading the magazine each month. I just wish itcame in grape.4. It has really cool reviews, like this month’s StuffIt review.The guy who wrote this month’s StuffIt review really knowswhat he’s talking about. The reviews are almost as good as theWelcome section so I just keep reading the magazine eachmonth.3. Somebody told me that somebody at MacAddict oncehad a copy so I just keep reading the magazine each month.Does that make me an ATPM Addict?2. I started my subscription to ATPM in college. Collegewas fun. Work isn’t fun, but ATPM is still fun. So I keepreading the magazine each month.1. What’s ATPM?There you have it! The top ten reasons for our longrunning popularity!ATPM 9.01 / January 2003Macworld San FranciscoIn just a few days the annual Macworld San Francisco tradeshow will open its doors to industry professionals and Macenthusiasts.

E-MailE-Mail’Tis the Season1I have just finished reading and copying your “’Tis theSeason” and found it to be exactly what I wanted to know. Ifound it a valuable source for anyone looking for comparegames for the Mac. Thank you for a job well done.—David F. Tiedtare numerous small programs that bring the OS 9 interfaceback to OS X. The biggest benefit? No more crashes. And thescreen is so easy to read.The biggest unsolved problem? Use a USB floppy drive andyou get a new definition for slow.I wouldn’t go back. There is just too much going for OS Xwhen you get used to it.—Gene I enjoyed reading this article. However, from my experience,it is just a little negative.I have not gone back to Classic for several months now, andI use a wide variety of programs from Adobe throughMicrosoft, and FileMaker Pro to a multitude of others.The one area where I would appreciate more help is in thearea of HP drivers; in particular for the LaserJet 2200D.—Patrick Long It does take a while to get used to OS X. It is, in general, awhole new way of doing things. At first, I wanted apps that letme do things the old way. I found that the more I used OS Xthe less I felt this way. In fact, the only old style helper app Ifind that I need is WindowShade. When I gave up on doingthings the old way, got used to the new way, and started tofind and use the many key shortcuts of OS X, I finally nolonger wanted to go back. In fact, I no longer use OS 9 norClassic. I boot into OS 9.1 about once a week to archive my email in Eudora. I use Mail in OS X and love it. It’s the firstmail app besides Eudora which I find usable. I set Mail toleave messages on the server and Eudora saves the messagesand removes them from the server. One day, even that will nolonger be done! OS X has opened a whole new world ofwonderful video editing apps that just aren’t available for OS9 at any price.—Will S. If only the OS X UI were “pretty” as deemed by the author. Inaddition to its mindless difficulties, it is about as aestheticallyappealing as a pinball machine—an old pinball machine.(Well, better than a new pinball machine anyway.)And Steve Jobs once charged Microsoft (quite rightly) withhaving no culture. Now Apple has joined the barbarians.—Ed Williams Greetings from FranceI’m 62 and half retired (that is, the right foot in an activity ofWeb site design and translation, the left one resting ). Moreseriously I receive my copy of ATPM with delight and wantjust to say that I really appreciate the “spirit” not that causticor gothic because I find the just info I need to stay in touchwith the reality of Mac world.Your issues curiously bring to me like a fresh breeze fromother side of the Atlantic ocean and after reading articles andlaughing after cartoons or admiring nice photographs fromeverywhere on the little planet I feel like “a papillon.”Well just to say thank you again for the quality of your workand the involvement of your team.—Jean Pierre Belliard, from coastal Picardy (North France)Mac OS X: Powerful But Awkward2I hope to completely avoid going back to Classic soon. Assoon as I can find an OS X version of FoxBase Pro, I will useOS 9 for utilities only. Yes, it does take time to get used to OSX, but the rewards outweigh the issues, in my opinion.Memory handling is much better. I usually have 12 to 14apps open at once. Memory issues are gone. The system isstable. The only time I restart the computer is after I install apackage that requires it. I happen to be a fan of the Dock.Between it and the Favorites Finder window, I don’t need tolook any further for all of the things I use daily. Speaking ofFinder windows, the 10.2.2 forward and back arrows are agreat way to navigate to places you often go. Othercustomizable menu items in the Finder windows make themfar more useful than in OS 9. OS X has a good userinterface it is just different. I would not volunteer to goback.—Jayk6 I don’t necessarily agree about running back to OS 9 afterusing OS X. Once you get used to it, what you originallythought of as problematic becomes less problematic. ATPM 9.01 / January 20037E-Mail

I do computer support for education. I’ve used OS X from theget-go on the theory that my customers would be using it.After, what—two years now?—I’m finally getting to the pointwhere I miss some parts of OS X when I go back to OS 9,mostly in the smoother multitasking and better memorymanagement.But still, after “OS X immersion training,” it’s like arefreshing drink of water to go back to OS 9. The speed! Thecrisp screen display! The infinitely better file management!And, sadly, the superior user interface.This is not a comment from someone who’s simply havingtrouble adjusting. I’ve got computers in the house runningvarious Windows and Linux revs, and I use themcomfortably. OS X eye candy is designed to be sold, not to beused.—Scott SchuckertI couldn’t agree more. It’s obvious the NeXT programmersdeveloped the UI. It’s an interface only a programmer couldlove. But hey, the geeks are happy. Who cares if it takes twiceas long to manage your files with OS X. It’s finally got aterminal window, man!My OS 9 machines connect to my networked laser printerwith a single click on the Chooser. My laptop running Jaguarhas options to select AppleTalk, TCP/IP, HTTP, USB printers,and more. Unfortunately none of them can find my printer.Oh well, it gives me a hobby. Someday I’ll find just the rightcombination to be able to print. In the mean time, when Ineed to work I’ll use OS 9.—RTMac Copyright 2003 the ATPM Staff, editor@atpm.com.

Candy Apple: ResolutionsThe Candy Appleby Ellyn Ritterskamp, eritterskamp@atpm.comResolutionsNon-Computer ThingsThis is where the notion of putting belief into practice comesinto play. Once we decide something is important, we maketime for it. We go to the gym, or get exercise somewhere else.We arrange time to meditate or study or be still. We scheduletime with people who are important to us. Those are thingsthat matter to me. Other people have other things that matterto them.This is the measure of the strength of a belief: how do weput it into practice? A belief is worthless withoutcommitment. When I believe I should be a useful member ofmy community, I cannot then in good conscience walk by apiece of trash without picking it up. Else my belief has nomeaning.Most of the time, my only New Year’s resolution is not tomake any resolutions. I dislike the idea of using an arbitraryevent (turning a page on a calendar) to trigger doingsomething we should have been doing all along. That said,I’ve decided that maybe it’s okay to use such an event asmotivation, if that’s what it takes to get us moving. But I stillthink if we really thought it was a good habit, we’d have beenin the habit already. But more on habit later. For now, let’sdive into those resolutions.Computer ThingsChange my passwords. We know we should do this every nowand then. Sometimes our operating systems are set up toremind us to do it, but mostly we disable stuff like that. Andthen two years later we need to sign into something and can’tremember what the password was. So we’re changing all of’em. Right now. I’m stopping to do it right now.See, if I just think, “Oh, that’s something I should do when Iget around to it,” I’ll probably never get around to it. So I didit just now. It took five minutes, well, for all the places I couldthink of. On Web sites where I’m logging in, I’ve made anappointment with myself for next Tuesday at 3. A whole hourto visit all my bookmarked pages and change my passwords.Time: ten minutes.Run the virus protection software. Or open it up and set thepreferences to auto-connect once a week, Sunday morningswhen I know I’ll be asleep. Time: two minutes. Stop and do itnow.Dust. Really. Clean off the air vents and the backs of theequipment. It gets kind of icky back there. Time: threeminutes.Print something in color. This only applies to people whorarely use their printers. I found out the hard way last yearthat if I never printed anything in color, the ink dried up. Itcost more to replace the ink than the printer was worth. Sonow I make myself print something in color every couple ofweeks. Time: one minute.Do other technical stuff. Stuff I dunno what it is, but youguys do. Defragging and reformatting and zapping andclearing the cache and rebuilding the desktop. That stuff youknow you’re supposed to do every so often? Stop and do itnow, or make a date with yourself to do it this week. Timerequired: I have no idea. I just use this thing; I dunno how itworks.ATPM 9.01 / January 2003If I believe I love my cat and want us to have a goodrelationship, I put that into practice by deliberately spendingtime with him, bringing joy to us both. Just feeding him andscooping out the box does not a good relationship make. Atleast not for this particular cat, and not for me. Your mileagewill vary. Cats are like that.The point is, we choose a belief, a thing about which we feelstrongly. And then we put it into action. That’s it. If we reallybelieve whatever it is, then the action part will not be hard. In1890’s Principles of Psychology, William James said this ofhabit: “No matter how full a reservoir of maxims one maypossess, and no matter how good one’s sentiments may be, if9Candy Apple: Resolutions

one has not taken advantage of every concrete opportunity toact, one’s character may remain entirely unaffected for thebetter. With mere good intentions, hell is proverbially paved.”Which is a long way round of saying: It’s not enough tothink about it. We hafta do it.Now go out there and do it.Onward.Copyright 2003 Ellyn Ritterskamp, eritterskamp@atpm.com.ATPM 9.01 / January 200310Candy Apple: Resolutions

The Legacy CornerThe Legacy Cornerby Chris Lawson, clawson@atpm.comBluetooth & 68K Browsers68000-based Macs are essentially useless as browsers.Samba (MacWWW) works only on pages ending in .htm or.html and isn’t very reliable. It also fails to handle modernDOCTYPE declarations and will ignore a page entirely ratherthan attempt to render it if it fails to recognize theDOCTYPE. Virtually all other 68K Macs with at least 4 MBRAM can (and should) use iCab for graphical browsing, orWannaBe or MacLynx for text browsing. iCab works best on a68K if you put its cache on a RAM disk and turn off multipleconnections, although on RAM-limited Macs like the LC, LCII, Color Classic, Classic II, and Mac TV, this will likely beimpossible. Running any variant of Netscape—2.02 and 4.08are the only ones worth using—will require at least 16 MBRAM, and both versions of Netscape are buggy enough thatthey’ll keep eating RAM until they crash, whichunfortunately seems to be rather often. Don’t ever expect todo anything useful with Java or Flash. Although both can beinstalled, neither version is new enough to work with modernJava or Flash sites, which generally require at least a 2.0version of the Java Virtual Machine and 5.0 version of Flash.(The highest 68K versions are 1.x and 3.x, respectively.)The bottom line? Throw as much RAM as you can into theMac and use iCab with the cache on a RAM disk (or withimages turned off entirely) for maximal speed with graphicalbrowsing, or use a text-based browser if your browsing habitsallow you to get anything useful done with text-onlybrowsing. Use Netscape if you absolutely can’t get iCab towork well for you, but don’t even bother with 1.x or 3.xversions of Netscape, and forget entirely about IE, the 68Kversions of which are at least as bad as Netscape but withpoorer standards support and expired (and irreplaceable)security certificates.Further reading on 68K browsers is available frommacfaq.org2 and Gamba’s browser page3.Good luck, and as always, feel free to post comments if youhave corrections, questions, or problems.I’m going to apologize in advance for the digression fromlegacy topics this month, but I simply had to share mywonderment with the new technology Apple debuted about ayear ago in Mac OS X: Bluetooth. For those of you who don’tknow, Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows devicesto communicate among each other over a short range (about10 meters or so) at moderate speeds (think LocalTalk ormarginally faster, up to about one megabit per second). So farit has found applications primarily in the cellular telephoneand PDA markets, and when combined with such software asApple’s iSync, allows the user to sync a cell phone, PDA, and/or Macintosh without any encumbering wires.As a graduate student, I have free dialup access on myschool’s network, but unfortunately, the dialups are all localto my home state of Michigan. When visiting out-of-staterelatives for Christmas, and long distance charges being whatthey are, keeping on top of my e-mail becomes ratherdifficult. Enter my cell phone, an Ericsson T68, and mynational coverage from T-Mobile. Simply by installing the DLink Bluetooth adapter, available from the Apple Store for 50, I could connect to my phone quite easily. Afterdownloading Ross Barkman’s Bluetooth modem scripts1 andselecting the Ericsson T39 script at 9600 bps, I merely had toinitiate a PPP connection as usual and I was connected, albeitterribly slowly, so that I could keep my e-mail under control.There’s also something quite enjoyable about cruisingdown the freeway at 70 MPH (Dad’s driving) and being ableto check up on the weather ahead, chat with friends on AIM,and check my e-mail. Yes, I know I’m a hopeless Internetjunkie, but business e-mail doesn’t take vacations, so I can’teither (at least not for longer than a day or two). Now for a somewhat more legacy-related topic. Ourpublisher, Michael Tsai, suggested I take a moment to discussWeb browser options for 68K Macs. I plan on doing a fullreview just as soon as I can get some time, but here’s what Irecommend based on limited experience up to this tmlCopyright 2003 Chris Lawson, clawson@atpm.com.ATPM 9.01 / January 200311The Legacy Corner

Paradigm: E-Mail ArchivingThe Personal Computing Paradigmby Michael Tsai, mtsai@atpm.comE-Mail Archiving with Eudora and Mail.appWhy ArchiveBack in November, Ken Gruberman wrote1 about how toslim down your Outlook Express or Entourage mail database.As the databases get large, the software slows down, the filesbecome harder to back up, and the potential for data lossincreases. One option, of course, is to delete mail older than aspecified age. Another is to keep only a small amount of oldmessages that you think you may need in the future. Myphilosophy is that it’s not worth the time and chance formistakes to pick and choose which mail to save; I just saveeverything. By moving, or archiving, old messages outsidethe program’s mail database, you can make your mail clientzippy again while still keeping the old messages available ifyou need to search them some day. This article will teach youhow to archive old mail compactly and in a way that you willbe able to find old messages when you need them. A lot of people like to do this, but I don’t find any of thesesolutions acceptable, because: E-Mail ClientsEmailer, Entourage, Mailsmith, Outlook Express 5, andPowerMail are all clients that can benefit from e-mailarchiving. All but Mailsmith store mail in a single databasefile. This means that they slow down when you have a lot ofmail and that the database file is a single point of failure if youever run into disk trouble. A single large file is hard to backup, and yet it’s all the more reason to backup frequently. Ifyou use one of these clients you should definitely think aboute-mail archiving.Mailsmith, unlike the others, uses one database file for eachmailbox. This makes it less susceptible to the above problems,but there are several reasons2 to keep its mail store fromgrowing too large. First, the program slows down as you addmore mailboxes, even if you aren’t viewing them. Second,Mailsmith sometimes modifies mailbox files that you aren’tusing, so your incremental backup software will waste timeand space backing them up even if they haven’t reallychanged. Third, its database files use about five times moredisk space than other clients’. Importing MailBoth Eudora and Mail.app have Import features, for bringingin messages from your primary e-mail client. Most otherclients can export in mbox format, which both Eudora andMail.app know how to read. The mbox format is standardand compact. It preserves attachments, but you will loseclient-specific metadata such as message colors and themarkers that show whether you’ve replied to or forwarded amessage. Emailer doesn’t have a built-in mbox export thing.comATPM 9.01 / January 2003Archiving tens or hundreds of thousands of messagesto individual text files will slim down your maildatabase but slow down your file system.It’s not very convenient to browse messages stored intext files.FileMaker databases can’t store more than about 64Kper field, so long messages will be truncated. Also,FileMaker databases, in my experience, are slow andunreliable when they get to be very large.With the above methods it’s easy to lose track ofattachment files and which messages they wereattached to.The tools for searching text files and FileMakerdatabases are not optimized for searching e-mails.I propose that it’s better to archive old mail into another email client. Eudora and Mail.app are both available for freeand both have many advantages when dealing with vastquantities of mail. There are many reasons why you mightprefer to use another program for your day to day mail.However, the criteria that make a program good fordownloading, reading, and composing messages are for themost part quite different from those that make a programgood for storing and searching large quantities of messages.Eudora and Mail.app h
