[NPL] Fresh Start 1.1
Fresh Start 1.1 posted. September 19 1999 -- Murray Yar IT today posted the version 1.1 of Fresh Start, a program designed for shared Macintoshes. Fresh Start restores a Macintosh's configuration -- preferences, PRAM and some system settings -- to a standard state at each restart. Changes from Fresh Start 1.0: * Version 1.1 is a little more flexible in how it deals with preferences: 1. It is now possible to allow some preferences not to be restored each time. This is useful if an application's preference files are used to store ongoing information. For example, in a children's learning program, names and scores are often stored in the preference file. Restoring the file at restart would wipe the information added during the previous session. 2. Now, if new applications are added to the Macintosh after Fresh Start has started functioning, their preferences are no longer erased by Fresh Start -- instead, they are ignored. * Splash screens have been revised slightly. * A few bug fixes,...

[NPL] PhilSoft FireWire Mass Storage Driver
*** FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE *** San Jose, CA - PhilSoft, Inc. today announced that it is now shipping a FireWire Mass Storage Driver for Macintosh computers.

"Many people have also noticed that many of the drivers currently shipping are not true, dynamically loadable drivers, but rather are static System Extensions which don't comply with Apple's dynamically loadable driver...

[NPL] Highware ships SafeMail Pro
HIGHWARE SHIPS SAFEMAIL PRO FOR THE MACINTOSH Brussels, September 2, 1999. - Highware, has released the pro version of its PGP compatible encryption software. People can communicate securely with others who use SafeMail, or with people who use a different implementation of PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) -- Mac, Windows or Unix. The encrypted information -- email or files -- can be sent safely over the internet, or using any electronic channel or media. Encryption is recommended on the internet, because sending an email is much less secure than sending an ordinary letter or a fax. Internet emails and files normally travel in clear text from server to server and can be intercepted by a variety of people -- then read and even changed. With SafeMail the information is safe. SafeMail is about privacy: protecting and exchanging information in a secure way. Olivier Merenne, Highware's Managing Director, said "We want to improve security for Macintosh computer users. We'd already made a good start...
