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]
Smarter Parental Controls
If you've been using the parental controls options in Mac OS X to lock your child out of using a particular computer late at night, but would like to employ a more clever technique to limit Internet access, turn to MAC address filtering on an Apple base station.
To do this, launch AirPort Utility, select your base station, and click Manual Setup. In the Access Control view, choose Time Access to turn on MAC filtering. You'll need to enter the MAC address of the particular computer, which (in 10.5 Leopard and 10.6 Snow Leopard) you can find in the Network System Preferences pane: click AirPort in the adapter list, and click Advanced. The AirPort ID is the MAC address.
