Portuguese and French Translators Needed -- After the success of our call for help translating TidBITS into Dutch, we'd like to see if anyone wishes to help translate TidBITS into Portuguese. We have a few volunteers, but not enough to start the translations. If you're interested in translating some of TidBITS into Portuguese each week, let me know. Also, the French team could use more volunteers, so if you're interested in helping with the French translation, drop me and Seth Theriault <firstname.lastname@example.org> a note. The more people who help, the less work it is. [ACE]
Smarter Parental Controls
If you've been using the parental controls options in Mac OS X to lock your child out of using a particular computer late at night, but would like to employ a more clever technique to limit Internet access, turn to MAC address filtering on an Apple base station.
To do this, launch AirPort Utility, select your base station, and click Manual Setup. In the Access Control view, choose Time Access to turn on MAC filtering. You'll need to enter the MAC address of the particular computer, which (in 10.5 Leopard and 10.6 Snow Leopard) you can find in the Network System Preferences pane: click AirPort in the adapter list, and click Advanced. The AirPort ID is the MAC address.
