ShareDevil Now Available -- Many thanks to the kind folks at ZMac/MacUser for making the late Robert Hess's ShareDevil utility available for free on the Internet. ShareDevil enhances System 7's file sharing, adding features such as a warning when someone connects to or disconnects from your machine, a file sharing and ARA status window, and an easy way of accessing the file sharing control panels. ShareDevil is an application and uses little memory, so it's a great candidate for the Startup Items folder. Before we set up our SE/30 as a fileserver, I used my 660AV as a server, and I loved having ShareDevil telling me when Tonya was connected (in case I wanted to restart or try flaky software). [ACE]
