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]
Wake On Demand in Snow Leopard
Putting your Mac to sleep saves power, but it also disrupts using your Mac as a file server, among other purposes. Wake on Demand in Snow Leopard works in conjunction with an Apple base station to continue announcing Bonjour services that the sleeping computer offers.
