Welcome to the latest update on Macintosh/Internet information. This month we have an eclectic collection of information available on the Internet including more Java beans, and the latest from Dave Winer.

Internet

I am sure you have heard about the battle of the Internet browsers, but just to make sure that you know where to find each, here are the URLs.

Netscape Navigator 2.0 http://cgi.netscape.com/cgi-bin/123.cgi

Microsoft Internet Explorer http://www.microsoft.com/ie/platform/macie.htm

Speaking of Java, we have another site of Macintosh-specific Java information, by Rusty Harold, who also writes the Well Connected Mac. Between the two, Rusty must be keeping quite busy. Check it out if you are interested in Java.

Cafe Au Lait (MacJava) http://sunsite.unc.edu/javafaq/

Dave Winer has yet another spin-off of his Frontier technology. He has created a graphical front end to Frontier that can be invoked from within Web pages. It is sort of like HyperCard for Web pages. He is currently trying to port it to other environments, but if you have a Macintosh (which I bet you do), you can try it out first.

Macintosh

Apple is in the process of putting Inside Macintosh on the Web. Not just references, but the complete books, including illustrations, tables, and sample code! They have QuickDraw-3D and Files available as I write this. Is this a sign of what is to come in the publishing business? Stay tuned to find out.

Inside Mac http://dev.info.apple.com/insidemac.htm

For those of us interested in development and debugging, Seapine has created a page of testing and quality-control tools (debuggers, testing tools, source code control, testing services).

Seapine Software (MacQC) http://www.seapine.com/qclinks.html

Here we have someone doing Apple’s job. Matthew McRae has taken it upon himself to be an unofficial evangelist for the Macintosh. He is maintaining an archive of the EvangeList mailing list, soliciting suggestions from people about how to make the Macintosh better, keeping a page of links to other information, and in general doing what an Evangelist does. Maybe Apple will hire him when he graduates.

Neat non-Macintosh site of the Month

Well, it’s not non-Macintosh, but you can certainly waste a lot of time! Time-Warner has built a graphical network chat system that runs on the Internet, as well as AppleTalk networks. It is really quite neat! If you go to the Web site below, you can download the software. Besides providing a client, you can also download a server that will let you create “rooms.” The Palace is a virtual building that is distributed across publicly accessible servers. To access all of the features of the client, you need to register the software, but it isn’t very expensive, and you can then give yourself your own name (instead of Guest) and create your own face pictures. If you really get into it, you can write programs in iptScrae (pig latin anyone?) and cause all sorts of magical things to happen. There are many cool ideas here, and it is lots of fun.

The Palace http://www.thepalace.com/

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

Thanks this month to Jesse Carneiro, Rusty Harold, Maurice Inzirillo, Holli Kearns, Matthew McRae, Brent Simmons, and many others for their contributions of suggestions and pointers to new and old sites.
