See All Your Books in iBooks

The iBooks app for iOS lets you assign your books to different collections, but does not have any obvious way for you to see all of your books, regardless of the collection you have put them in. There is, however, a workaround that can show you just about all of your books at once: reveal the search field at the top of any collection in iBooks and type a single space into that field.

With this search, iBooks lists all of the books that have a space either in the title of the book or in the author's name. Other than the rare book that has a one-word title and a single-name author, you end up with a list of all of your books.

digitalNation, a FirstClass-based online service operated by Computer Services Group, Inc., (CSGI) is now available locally in the Miami area and worldwide on the Internet.

CSGI is one of the first organizations to take full advantage of SoftArc's new TCP/IP-capable FirstClass Server software, version 2.6, released last year (see TidBITS-252). Users of the FirstClass Client software may access digitalNation at IP address 204.91.31.64 port 3004. (FirstClass Client 2.6 is required; the Mac version is available at the below URL.)

digitalNation is also available for text-based access through the FirstClass command-line user interface at IP address 204.91.31.64 port 3000. Both graphical and command-line access is available by modem at 703/642-0453.

A new digitalNation server is available in the Miami area by modem at 305/859-9287. CSGI president Bruce Waldack says the new system will provide "a highly localized, easy to use point of entry onto the information superhighway," as well as specialized software libraries and discussion forums that have become popular on digitalNation. Each of the digitalNation systems, in Baltimore, Washington DC, and now Miami, also offers location-specific information such as arts and cultural listings, current events, and special areas for local educational and non-profit organizations.

FirstClass 2.6 performs well even on modem Internet connections such as SLIP or PPP services offer. Internet connections by modem won't provide better throughput than direct FirstClass modem connections, but can eliminate long distance telephone charges.
