MacHack 17: Call for Papers
MacHack 17: Call for Papers MacHack: The Annual Conference for Leading Edge Developers Contact: Carol Lynn c/o Expotech 1264 Bedford Road Grosse Point Park, MI 48230 January 3, 2002-Dearborn, MI- If you are looking for a New Year's resolution, here's a great one: Write a paper for MacHack!

iHam on iRye version 1.0: Remote iTunes Admin
iHam on iRye version 1.0 iHam on iRye is a set of three applications used to control iTunes over a LAN or WAN network. With iHam on iRye, you can control nearly every aspect of iTunes running on one Macintosh from any other Macintosh on your network. It is mainly intended to be used in conjunction with an MP3 server type situation, where a Macintosh is dedicated to running iTunes. While this application can be used over the Internet, it works best when used on a LAN network, or at least an Internet connection with broadband. Dial up modems are not recommended (or supported). iHam on iRye iServer runs best under Mac OS X. Under classic, there seem to be some issues. For one, it crashes periodically when choosing a new song from the playlist. I am beginning to think this is an iTunes bug, but at this point, I am not exactly sure what is going on.

The Omni Group Releases Oni for Mac OS X! December 19, 2001 -- Seattle, Washington -- Play Oni, the exciting anime-styled action adventure game, on Mac OS X!

Wil Shipley, Omni President states, "Oni is one of my four favorite games of all time. I played it all the way through twice, and still want more.

Plus, it was great experience -- it was one of our first ports of a modern non-Quake-based game (although now we've done three of them)....

I also added a window transparency option, just for the heck of it. Thanks to Alexander Cohen for the nice plugin for that.

URLomatic 1.1: Hitting URLs on a schedule
URLomatic is a tool that will help webmasters that have URLs on their server that needs to be called to perform some kind of maintenance functionality on the server, like backups or cleanups. URLomatic 1.1 for Classic and Mac OS X ( Changes from 1.0 URLomatic now can access URLs which are REALM-protected if you provide a username and password for that REALM. As more and more webmasters build complex solutions using advanced CGIs and server extensions, it sometimes can be very easy to create the maintenance functionality using the same language/development tools as the solution itself is built with. Why create complex routines when they can't be reused? Some of those solutions do not have any kind of "cron-like" task manager that can activate tasks on a specific time or when a certain amount of time have passed. This is what URLomatic does for you. It can access URLs on your server to handle those things. You can now write your maintenance scripts using the...
