[MD1] Creative's Side on Goo
From: "Rick Myllenbeck" (RickM@creaf.com) Subject: Re: Creative Labs Forces Goo to Close As you know, there has been a great deal of discussion in the last couple of days claiming that Creative Labs forced Goo Software out of business by filing a trademark action against it. This is untrue. Creative has filed no lawsuit against Goo. Creative has taken no steps that could conceivably have forced Goo out of business. Goo's claims to the contrary on its Website are false. All Creative has done to date with respect to Goo is to send correspondence to Goo's management objecting to Goo's use of the terms "Spam Blaster" and "Cache Blaster." Such correspondence is routine and in good faith. Creative owns a family of trademarks (thirty two registered in the U.S. alone) containing the word "Blaster." Our concern is that Goo is using the goodwill associated with our family of marks. In addition we are concerned that Goo is creating potential consumer confusion and, independently, diluting the...

This is a resend which corrects a slight error we made in the previous version -- a slip of the mouse which edited out one digit in one of the tables. Sorry for the confusion.

[MD1] Configuration Changer Scripts
Software by Tim Kelly and Friends (www.madison-web.com/tkelly) Announces Configuration Changer Scripts (CC Scripts) CC Scripts is a Scripting Addition/OSAX that enables changing the active configuration for all four Open Transport control panels from an AppleScript. CC Scripts works on both 68k and PowerMac architectures. CC Scripts also accepts remote events, so the active configuration can be retrieved and set on both local and remote Macs. Notable is the ease of use of CC Scripts. All it takes is one line of AppleScript (for example, set configuration of AppleTalk/TCPIP/OTPPP/Modem to "name of configuration"), and you've changed the active configuration. Additionally, with the "Get" feature of CC Scripts, returning the current configuration name, or if the keyword "with listing all" is used, returning all the user's configurations, for that control panel is a snap. As it can be used remotely, a system administrator can (with Program Linking enabled) tell at a glance which...
