Fog City Releases LetterRip Pro -- Fog City Software has released LetterRip Pro 3.0, a major revision of their easy-to-configure, high performance mailing list software. In addition to user interface enhancements and performance improvements, LetterRip Pro can now remove duplicate addresses (and recognize similar email addresses), support multihoming under Open Transport 1.3, handle separate administrators for each mailing list, compile daily statistics, and - importantly - add or modify message headers to protect private addresses or add custom information. Until 31-Mar-98, LetterRip Pro is available from Fog City for $295, and current LetterRip owners can upgrade for $95 (the upgrade is free if you purchased LetterRip during 1998). After 31-Mar-98, LetterRip Pro will be $395 and upgrades will be $145. Fog City recently posted LetterRip Pro 3.0.1 which fixes a couple of bugs; there's also an updater you can install over an existing copy of LetterRip Pro 3.0. LetterRip Pro is available from Fog City's Web site and can be used for 30 days without a registration number. [GD]
Fixing Save as Adobe PDF Crashes
There have been many reported instances of the "Save as Adobe PDF" workflow crashing regardless of application, but precious few workarounds or resolutions. In troubleshooting, I discovered that there were three instances of the "Save as Adobe PDF.action" in three different locations: /Library/Automator; ~/Library/Automator; and /System/Library/Automator. By eliminating all except the version in /System/Library/Automator, the workflow started behaving, and I was able to cut PDFs directly from the Print dialog.
