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.

 
 

Epson Printer Drivers 2.3.1 for Mac OS X 10.6

Send Article to a Friend

Apple's release notes for its latest Epson Printer Drivers update for Snow Leopard say only that the update "installs the latest software for your Epson printer or scanner." While the notes link to a master list of supported Epson printers, they don't indicate which models have been added. Still, it's nice to know that Apple is expanding its printer support, and you can search the list to see if a particular printer is supported. (Free, 688.23)

Installing that has removed an Epson plug-in for Intel Base so I'm unable to use Vuescan anymore

That seems troublesome! Have you checked with Ed Hamrick about that? Or it may be easier to just reinstall VueScan.
