FreePPP 2.6 Released -- Following a long period of public beta testing, Rockstar Studios, in conjunction with the FreePPP Group, has released a complete version of FreePPP 2.6, the popular free dialup software that lets Macs connect to the Internet. FreePPP 2.6 offers performance improvements over previous versions; it also recognizes more modems, features a revamped setup interface (including 24 lines for login scripts), offers better compatibility with Performa modems, and incorporates numerous bug fixes. FreePPP co-exists happily with Apple's Open Transport/PPP (switching between them just requires changing Open Transport's TCP/IP settings), so users can pick the PPP implementation that works best for them. Rockstar also offers GearBox, a commercial dialup tool built on FreePPP that includes diagnostic tools and the ability to manage multiple configurations. FreePPP 2.6 is a 785K download, works with MacTCP or Open Transport, and requires System 7.1 or higher and a 68020 or better processor (including PowerPCs). [GD]
See All Your Books in iBooks
The iBooks app for iOS lets you assign your books to different collections, but does not have any obvious way for you to see all of your books, regardless of the collection you have put them in. There is, however, a workaround that can show you just about all of your books at once: reveal the search field at the top of any collection in iBooks and type a single space into that field.
With this search, iBooks lists all of the books that have a space either in the title of the book or in the author's name. Other than the rare book that has a one-word title and a single-name author, you end up with a list of all of your books.
