Uniform Resource Locators

By Jim Straus, URLs@mactech.com

Spare your fingers and find this column online at:

http://www.mactech.com/urls.html

Welcome to this month’s URLs column. Since the comprehensive list of URLs is getting longer and longer, I’m going to try a new format. Each month I will list all the new and updated URLs along with more commentary. If you want the latest complete list, you can find it at: http://www.mactech.com/

or (for a limited time), send mail to: MacTech-URLs@class.com
and you’ll receive the latest list back.

Since I’ve been running the Web version of the URLs column on my server until it moved to MacTech’s official server, I will share some interesting statistics I’ve collected. The highest volume day showed 132 hits for the URLs page. The highest volume month was July with 2462 hits. People from Austria to Venezuela, from Iceland to South Africa have looked at the page. The most hits from a non-US country came from Canada with 382 hits, followed by 284 for Germany. In the US, North Western University (NWU) had the most accesses to the page, followed by America Online subscribers and then Apple employees.

Those of you doing lots of surfing may want to check out a couple of products: GrabNet and Clay Basket. Each allows you to capture URLs (and other information) and organize and annotate it. They are super bookmark/hotlist editors that work with a variety of browsers that understand AppleEvents. Now, if I can just find the time to annotate all my old bookmarks so I can remember what each was...

Macintosh

Pictorius, the makers of Prograph, has a web site now. In addition to information on Prograph CPX, you can find Prograph Classic at this site. If you haven’t heard, Pictorius made Prograph Classic available as freeware. Here’s a way to try out a great graphical programming language at a very reasonable cost! There is also a link to Dan Shafer’s page where he’s offering a book/disk set of the Prograph QuickStart book and the Prograph Classic disks. You can get the paper version from him or order the electronic version right over the net.

Those of us into AppleScripting, should check out ScriptWeb. They are working to be the premier source for information on AppleScript and Frontier as well as other OSA environments. There is a wealth of information here and links to lots more.
ScriptWeb http://www.gz.com/scriptweb/

TopSoft is an Internet based Macintosh Programming User Group dedicated to creating ground-breaking free and low-cost software for the Macintosh. They’ve released a product they call FilterTop, a tool for piping together drag/drop applications to make super drag/drop applications. [There is more information about FilterTop in Newsbits . -jk]

Now that Guy Kawasaki is back at Apple, he's set up a mailing list to listen to developers. You can subscribe to this mailing list by sending mail to listproc@abs.apple.com and putting in “SUBSCRIBE SEMPER.FI your real name” in the body of the message.

Neat non-Macintosh sites of the Month

The first site I wanted to share is Earth Viewer. Here you can view the Earth showing the day and night regions, like a map, or you can view the Earth as seen from the Sun, the Moon, or any point in space. The images are based on topographical maps, weather satellite imagery, or a composite image with clouds on the map.

You can also find a random planet (a new one each day) and lots of other interesting stuff!
Earth Viewer http://www.fourmilab.ch/earthview/vplanet.html

The second site this month is the HTML 3.0 Top 10 List. This site contains links to sites with some very interesting visual effects, including animations. If you’re interested in designing your own Web pages, you can look at what other designers are creaing (and borrow their ideas), or just surf these sites and enjoy the experience.
HTML 3.0 Top 10 List http://www.i-link.net/adampr/top10.html

Well, that’s it for this month. As aways, if you find something interesting, or have updates, send them to URLs@MacTech.com.

Thanks to Martin Fenner, Joe Levenson, Tom Engel, (GrabNet programmer) Katy Agnor, Arno Louvo, Tony Jacobs, Peter Jensen, Lawrence D’Oliveiro, Peter Lewis, and many others for their contributions for their suggestions and pointers to new and old sites.
