Macworld Expo NY Events List Online -- Ilene Hoffman has once again posted the Robert Hess Memorial Macworld Expo Events List. If you plan to attend Macworld Expo in New York City from 07-Jul-98 through 10-Jul-98, check the list for public events. If you are hosting an event at Macworld Expo, make sure to fill out the Event Submission Form. Also, we strongly encourage anyone planning an event to read "Macworld Geek Party Guide" from TidBITS-415 for tips on how to throw a successful trade show party, something that's done all too infrequently.

Improve Apple Services with AirPort Base Stations
You can make iChat file transfers, iDisk, and Back to My Mac work better by turning on a setting with Apple AirPort base stations released starting in 2003. Launch AirPort Utility, select your base station, click Manual Setup, choose the Internet view, and click the NAT tab. Check the Enable NAT Port Mapping Protocol (NAT-PMP) box, and click Update. NAT-PMP lets your Mac OS X computer give Apple information to connect back into a network that's otherwise unreachable from the rest of the Internet. This speeds updates and makes connections work better for services run by Apple.
