Important News for Speed Doubler Users

Send Article to a Friend

Important News for Speed Doubler Users -- Late last week, Connectix released Speed Doubler 1.1 to correct a serious problem with the Speed Access component of Speed Doubler. Speed Access 1.1 corrects a problem whereby an uncommon combination of file system calls could cause a disk directory error. Other changes in the update include better performance for high speed serial transfers and improved compatibility with Excel 4.0, Apple PowerPC Upgrade cards, and future System updates. Connectix recommends all Speed Doubler users update to Speed Access 1.1, and though Connectix has announced plans to mail a floppy disk update to all registered users, I recommend you download the update and apply it today - why take chances?

Kudos to Connectix for making an effort to publicize and correct the problem. Not every company has the integrity to ship free update disks to some 50,000 registered users. [TJE]
