It also has the capability to run and serve pages while your machine is logged out. Installation is drag and drop and requires no manual editing of unix config files. In addition to supporting the traditional acgi AppleScript system acgi dispatcher adds some...

Quite Revealing exposes PDF secrets, fixes with one button
Quite Revealing exposes PDF secrets, fixes with one button LOCHAWE, SCOTLAND, (1, February 2002) - Quite Software's plug-ins for Acrobat have always been recognised for their ease of use and power, saving time and money in a pre-press environment. Now, Quite Revealing adds a new essential tool to the PDF armoury. Traditional pre-flight tools are excellent for reporting that PDF files contain problem elements. RGB colour, excess spot plates, transfer functions, transparency, TrueType fonts - all these can be picked up automatically. But in the real world, the story doesn't end there. The operator has to uncover the exact causes of the problem - often pinpoint a single graphic or word in a long document. Quite Revealing takes over where traditional pre-flight tools give up. Its revolutionary "side by side" view of the original PDF and selected elements will speed to the heart of the problem. For example, the operator can choose to display only RGB data on the right hand panel...

PrefsOverload 3.5.1 For Mac OS And Mac OS X Released
PREFSOVERLOAD 3.5.1 FOR MACOS AND MACOS X RELEASED. Gela, Italy -- I released PrefsOverload 3.5.1, a maintenance upgrade to my preferences management tool. This upgrade fixes some bugs and adds some interface improvements. PRODUCT DESCRIPTION PrefsOverload is a full-featured tool for managing the Preferences Folder, which contains your various "Preference Files". Preference Files are those files in which applications store their settings and other information. After System 7, all these files have been enclosed in the "Preferences Folder". Preferences are important files, but sometimes they can turn out to be completely unnecessary. This can occur, for example, when their mother application doesn't exist--or no longer exists--on your computer. Over time the Preferences Folder will slowly grow and may become filled with files created by trashed demo applications, or applications used for a short time only or not used at all. The trouble is that all these unused or unusable files still...
