[NPL] THE BLOCK 2.1
Marc Mennigmann releases THE BLOCK 2.1 Iserlohn, Germany -- November 01, 1998 -- Marc Mennigmann today announced the release of version 2.1 of THE BLOCK, a popular password security application for Macintosh computers. What is THE BLOCK? ================== THE BLOCK is a powerful password protection system for Macintosh computers. Unlike other password protection systems, it will not accept real passwords. To log in to a computer protected by THE BLOCK you need to go through a two-step process. First you need to type a Password Key, which is a key combination similar to the Finder's Copy or Paste shortcuts [command+c] or [command+v]. The second step is to click with the mouse on the shutdown button on the on-screen dialog or, depending on the preferences you set, to press the "esc" key on your keyboard. A big part of THE BLOCK's security comes from the illusion that a real password is needed. If intruders are not aware of how THE BLOCK works, they will always choose the wrong approach...

[MD1] Ultimate Macintosh Random-Number Generator
From: mpmcl@mitre.org (Mike McLaughlin) Subject: [ANN] The Ultimate Macintosh Random-Number Generator Just a brief note to let those interested know that source code is available for what is almost certainly the best (and fastest) general-purpose pseudo-random number generator (PRNG) publically available. See http://www.geocities.com/~mikemclaughlin/software/URandomLib.html The C++ class, URandomLib, was described in the October, 1998 issue of MacTech magazine. URandomLib may be used, without modification, in C programs as well. It is Macintosh-specific since the low-level routine generating the random output is coded in optimized assembly language (conditional compilation blocks for PowerPC and 68K). The cited URL is the official URandomLib homepage and contains a link to the MacTech ftp site. The underlying PRNG algorithm, known as "Ultra", was published, and rigorously tested, by Marsaglia and co-workers at Florida State Univ. This library, however, is new. If you ever need code...

MiniCalendar 2.1 PR FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Catara(tm) Software Releases MiniCalendar 2.1 Contact: Steven Marcotte catara@idir.net Lawrence, KS October 24, 1998 Catara(tm) Software today announced the release of MiniCalendar 2.1, an update of their popular calendar program. What is MiniCalendar 2.1? MiniCalendar is a small and elegant system calendar. Its main goal is to provide the user with a basic calendar for any month between January 1582 and December 29940. MiniCalendar is not designed to replace full function date books, rather it is designed to complement such programs. Programs such as Claris Organizer or Now Up-To-Date excel at managing appointments and dates, but are clumsy when it comes to looking up what day your birthday is going to fall on next year. MiniCalendar fills this niche nicely. Since MiniCalendar is small and easy enough to use, you will want to leave it running so you will always have access to a calendar. As you'd expect from Catara, MiniCalendar is robust,...

[MD1] MPW and Mac OS 8.5 issues
From: http://www.devworld.apple.com/dev/tools/mpw-tools/important.html as reported by MacInTouch. MPW and Mac OS 8.5 A serious bug has been discovered in the MPW Shell and ToolServer which can cause a Macintosh running Mac OS 8.5 to experience errors and File Manager operational failures. The bug exists in all versions prior to version 3.5d4 which was released on 9/9/98. The problem occurs when the Shell and/or ToolServer are executing a sequence of tools (such as during a build cycle), and the Mac OS 8.5 Finder is used to start a file and/or folder copy operation. When both operations are occuring simultaneously, the Finder will often start reporting File Not Open (-38) and/or Param (-50) errors. When it does so, the MPW operation will also start experiencing File Manager errors. The bug has been fixed in version 3.5d4 of the Shell and ToolServer. However, for those people who prefer to use Golden Master versions of software, we have also released new Golden Master versions (v3.4.3)...
