Internet

Interest in Java has been brewing for a while; now there are three development environments available. Natural Intelligence is developing a Java development environment called Roaster. It should be available by the time you read this. Metrowerks and Symantec have also released Java development environments. Check them out, too.

As an Internet user, you might consider getting a permanent mailbox. Most of us get e-mail through our employers or an Internet service provider we pay for ourselves. What will happen if you change employers or find a better service provider? You have to inform all your friends, contacts, mailing lists, etc. of your new address. If you are lucky, you can leave a forward at your old account for some period of time (like a change of address at the post office). An alternative is to get a permanent Internet address that forwards your mail to your current mailbox. For example, you can send me mail at jims@key.com (I must disclose that I am associated with Key Internet Services). The mail goes from there to me at whatever address I specify. I can change where the mail is forwarded at any time. This way, I only give people my jims@key.com account and they will never have to update their address for me. Several companies are providing this service.

Macintosh

If you are interested in setting up MacTCP or understanding how TCP/IP works, check out Eric Behr’s page full of MacTCP information. It has lots of good stuff including configuring InterSLIP, MacPPP, what all the options in the MacTCP control panel do, and information on OpenTransport’s TCP/IP implementation.

MacTCP/IP Notes http://www.math.niu.edu/~behr/docs/mactcp.html

Apple has set up a demonstration QuickTime site. Here you can get the tools to view QuickTime VR movies and see some demonstrations. They were running simulcasts on New Year’s Eve with a west coast TV station. I’m sure they’ll have something new by the time you read this.

QuickTime Live! http://live.apple.com/

Allegiant is building tools to allow you to script (Apple, Hyper, or Super) the Internet. You will be able to create Internet savvy applications using normal scripting tools. It provides high level support for most Internet protocols (HTTP, FTP, SMTP, etc). Another tool, the TCP/IP Scripting addition provides lower level TCP/IP tools where you read and write the TCP stream to create higher level protocols yourself.

Piazza has completely revamped their site and change the name to MacWare Revue. They are using Netscape 2.0 enhancements to make a very attractive site with lots of good revues of commercial software, shareware and freeware. It is definitely time to check it out again.

Neat non-Macintosh site of the Month

Well, it isn’t non-Macintosh, but it isn’t in the main stream. I wanted to point you towards a page of artificial life programs for the Macintosh. Lots of fun programs that can really suck up the CPU cycles. Included are evolving programs like MacTierra and Evolv-o-matic, cellular automata programs (including one in three dimensions), and other miscellaneous stuff. Also check out Santa Fe Institute’s page, sponsored by MIT Press. The Santa Fe Institute is the center of artificial life research.

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

Thanks this month to Chris Andrichak, Chris Hawk, Bob Krause, Bill Moore, and many others for their contributions and their suggestions and pointers to new and old sites.
