Time for a Fetch Refresh?

In the Fetch FTP client, if you see a time stamp like "As of 6/19/10 2:29 PM" above the file list, that means that Fetch is re-using a file list it downloaded earlier. Click the swooshing-arrow refresh button (located beside the time stamp) to refresh the list.

Working full-tilt on products like QuickAccess for Newton and a Casper-friendly version of QuicKeys, not to mention continuing development on QuickMail, means that CE Software has much less time to work on its other products, time which the company feels these products deserve. Therefore, CE has spun off its non-messaging, non-scripting products to a new company made up of former CE staffers and called PrairieSoft.

Announced at Macworld Boston, PrairieSoft takes over support and development of In/Out, Amazing Paint, Alarming Events, MockPackage, MacBillBoard, and DiskTop for Macintosh. All of these products don't quite fit CE's newly-focused, streamlined approach to messaging, "personal agent," and scripting technologies.

Among the CE veterans at the core of the new company are its president, Gil Beecher, along with John Kirk, Paul Miller, and Luke Lund. These and others were among CE's most senior staff members and were among the staff laid off in CE's downsizing a few months ago.

PrairieSoft plans to announce itself to its already existing customer base via a newsletter in the near future. In the meantime, the company can be reached at:

PrairieSoft, Inc.
P.O. Box 65820
West Des Moines, Iowa 50265
515-225-4122 (technical support)
515-225-2422 (fax)
