As always, there is Internet stuff and programmer resources at your finger tips. Or spare your fingers and find the full list online at:

Internet

If you want to serve information on the Internet, and are not sure what you will need, you should check out Mac Internet Server Software. It lists Web servers, ftp servers, gopher servers, mail servers, telnet servers, finger servers, domain name servers - anything you could ask for. Each server is rated for compatibility with MacTCP and Open Transport. Also included are some links useful for people setting up servers. An excellent resource.

It seems that we cannot go a month without more Java sites.
I am not going to say much about them, just mention them.

Macintosh

First off, if you have not seen it yet, you need to look in on the Apple’s Game Sprockets site. This is not the Sprocket™ application framework by MacTech Magazine, but the Apple’s Game Sprockets APIs. Included are Network Sprockets, QuickDraw 3D Sprockets, Speech Sprockets, Draw Sprockets, Sound Sprockets and Input Sprockets. “Sure,” you say, “these are just Inside Macintosh.” Actually, they are SDKs with sample applications, docs, and project frameworks. If you are interested in games on the Mac (or on the Pippin), this is the place for you.

Sprockets (Game APIs) http://dev.info.apple.com/evangelism/games/games.html

If you are looking for more OpenDoc information, read OpenDoc eZine (ODZ). This is a nice-looking Web-based publication that is devoted to OpenDoc. Be warned, it covers not only OpenDoc for the Macintosh, but the other OpenDoc platforms as well.

OpenDoc eZine http://www.partmerchant.com/odz/

For a more mainstream Macintosh e-zine, check out MacSense. It looks to be professionally assembled, and has up-to-the-minute information. Besides pointers to the latest news, there are reviews, columns, editorials, and even letters to the editor. This is a great source for learning about what is going on in the Mac community.

Neat non-Macintosh site of the Month

Whether you are a beginner or an expert Internet user, sometimes you will run into trouble and need help. Help can be found at the Internet Help Desk. If you are getting error messages back when trying to read mail, or problems fetching a file, this is the spot. Even if you are not confused by something, you should check in some time. You might learn some new way to do something, or learn about some aspect of the Internet unknown to you. It is not Macintosh-specific, but it has lots of help. A great reference!

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 Spec Bowers, Jonathan Hirshon, Lukas Hjalmar, Darren King, Peirano Philippe, David L. Slipp, Matt Wronkiewicz, and many others for their contributions for their suggestions and pointers to new and old sites.
