Macworld Expo NY Netter's Dinner -- After attending this year's Netter's Dinner at Macworld Expo in San Francisco, Al Tucker volunteered to organize a Netter's Dinner for Macworld New York. The Web page below will contain more information once the final plans (hopefully including registration via Kagi) are set in stone. For now, mark your calendar for meeting in the lobby of the Jacob Javits Center on Wednesday 08-Jul-98 at 6:00 PM. The dinner will cost $30 per person and will be held at a small restaurant within walking distance from the show. To sign up, send email to Al at <email@example.com> noting the number of people in your group so he can work up a head count. [ACE]
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.
