New Ebook Published: “Take Control of Users & Accounts in Panther”

Ithaca, NY (December 17, 2003) — “Take Control of Users & Accounts
in Panther” by Kirk McElhearn, an electronic book that takes the
mystery out of user accounts in Mac OS X, shipped earlier this week
and sold over 600 copies in its first 24 hours of availability.
“Understanding users and accounts in Mac OS X is key to setting up
the Mac correctly and performing basic troubleshooting, should
something goes wrong,” said author Kirk McElhearn.

“Take Control of Users & Accounts in Panther” offers strategies for
setting up accounts in a variety of common situations (a single user
Mac, a Mac shared by a family or a small office, or Macs in public
facilities), and provides account setup and usage instructions. Then
it delves into customizing the login experience (including how to
eliminate the need to type a password), the ramifications of Fast
User Switching, and how users on the same Mac can share files,
including pictures and music in iPhoto and iTunes.

Take Control publisher Adam Engst commented, “Anyone who is in charge
of a Macintosh will find Kirk’s sound advice and clear instructions
invaluable. I can’t believe how much I learned from this ebook.”
