Beware Country-Specific iTunes Stores

If you buy an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, and you happen to be a user of the iTunes Store in more than one country, take note which country's store you're viewing in iTunes when you plug in the device for the first time. This will be the country the device will register with, and you will be forever barred from purchasing or even updating free apps from anywhere else. The only way out is to delete everything on the device and do a full restore.

Nisus, MacWrite II, and XTND

Povl H. Pedersen <ECO861771@ecostat.aau.dk> writes: "You can make your copy of Nisus read MacWrite II files (I can even read DOS WordPerfect 5.0 files and a lot more). If you keep the option key pressed while selecting Open... Nisus will use the Claris XTND technology if it is installed. And the good news is that there is a XTND Developer package available at ftp.apple.com that includes XTND and filters for MacWrite and MacWrite II. It's in the /dts/mac/tools/xtnd directory, but it's big, about 520K. The XTND file must be in a folder named 'Claris' inside the System Folder, and all translators goes into the 'Claris Translators' folder inside the 'Claris' folder." [This trick works in 3.06; I can't comment on previous versions. I think more translators are available from third parties like DataViz.]
