Quarterdeck Acquires StarNine -- Hot on the heels of StarNine's acquisition of the Macintosh version of Microsoft Mail (see TidBITS-296), Quarterdeck Corporation announced on 28-Sep-95 that it has acquired StarNine for nearly 700,000 shares of Quarterdeck common stock. In case you're wondering who Quarterdeck is, you've been fortunate to live in a Macintosh-only world: Quarterdeck is a major developer of utility and remote computing software for DOS and Windows, including Internet products, a version of Mosaic, and the famous (infamous?) QEMM enhanced memory manager. This is the latest in a series of Internet-related purchases from Quarterdeck, and they're expected to take advantage of StarNine's Macintosh development experience to port its existing Windows and Windows 95 Internet products to the Macintosh, as well as ship StarNine's email software with its own products to provide "complete" cross-platform solutions. Quarterdeck is also expected to place a high priority on porting StarNine's WebSTAR HTTP server product to Windows NT and/or Windows 95. [GD]
Manage Multiple ChronoSync Documents
If you have multiple ChronoSync documents and need to run your syncs or backups manually, you may find it taxing to open each ChronoSync document and execute it manually. There are two easy methods to simplify managing multiple ChronoSync documents.
- You can add the ChronoSync documents to a Container document. A Container holds multiple ChronoSync documents and enables you to control several ChronoSync documents as if they were one document.
- You can make use of the Scheduled Documents Manager window to collect and organize commonly used ChronoSync documents without scheduling them.
Both methods allow you to schedule or manually run your syncs and backups.
