The Macintosh LC 520 is sold in Canada, or so <DELANEYG@wl.aecl.ca> writes to tell us. Unlike in the U.S., where Apple currently sells the LC 520 only to the education market, normal people can buy the LC 520 in Canada. The Canadian versions of the LC 520 sport 8 MB of RAM, an 80 MB or 160 MB hard disk, and an internal CD300i. All that, and apparently at a price lower than a comparably equipped LC III.
Improve Apple Services with AirPort Base Stations
You can make iChat file transfers, iDisk, and Back to My Mac work better by turning on a setting with Apple AirPort base stations released starting in 2003. Launch AirPort Utility, select your base station, click Manual Setup, choose the Internet view, and click the NAT tab. Check the Enable NAT Port Mapping Protocol (NAT-PMP) box, and click Update. NAT-PMP lets your Mac OS X computer give Apple information to connect back into a network that's otherwise unreachable from the rest of the Internet. This speeds updates and makes connections work better for services run by Apple.
