Open Links from Apple Mail in the Background

If an email message in Mail includes a Web link which you'd prefer to check out after you've read all your mail, and you don't want to hunt for the link later, Command-click the link in the message to open a browser window in the background. Mail remains the foreground application, and the browser window can wait till you're ready.

CD Updates

CD Updates -- Two popular CDs packed with thousands of files have recently been updated. AMUG (the Arizona Macintosh Users' Group) shipped BBS in a Box X for $119 ($45 upgrade), and Pacific Hi Tech just released the third edition of the Info-Mac CD-ROM for $49.95 (previous owners get a $20 discount), which holds many of the files stored on <sumex-aim.stanford.edu>. If you've had trouble accessing FTP sites due to the load, or if you're setting up a BBS and want a ready-made file library, check out these CDs. Both CDs reportedly have a conflict between the Dataware software used to create the CDs and the drivers for NEC CD-ROM drives. The workaround for the moment is to use a third-party generic driver, such as Charismac or FWB's CD-ROM Toolkit.

AMUG -- 602/553-8966 -- 602/553-8771 (fax) -- amug@aol.com
Pacific Hi-Tech -- 801/278-2042 -- 801/278-2666 (fax) -- 71175.3152@compuserve.com
