View Silver Screen Media on Your Apple TV from another Disk

Want to watch movies via Silver Screen that aren't in your Movies folder? Just create an alias in your Movies directory and select that as your Media Directory in Silver Screen's preferences. It will even be automatically mounted if needed when the folder is browsed in Silver Screen. To make the alias, mount the server or other disk in the Finder, locate the folder containing the movies and Command-Option-drag the folder's icon into your Movies directory.

Mailsmith Emerges from the Forge -- Bare Bones Software today announced the release of Mailsmith 1.0, the company's long-awaited email client program. Although the market for email programs would appear crowded, what with Emailer, Eudora, Netscape Communicator, Outlook Express, QuickMail Pro, and others, Mailsmith promises some unusual features. Mailsmith offers multi-threaded processing that enables it to send, receive, and filter mail while you continue to work; filters with multiple criteria and multiple actions; "fuzzy" searching; grep pattern matching in searches and filters; database-based mail storage; full OSA scripting and recording; and the essential text-editing features from BBEdit. Mailsmith has a suggested retail price of $79; existing BBEdit owners can purchase it for $59; and discounts are available for users of other email programs. A demo is available from the Bare Bones FTP site, which isn't currently accepting connections. [ACE]
