Of iMacs and StyleWriters -- Last week's "iMac Connection Guide" (see TidBITS-444) will require updates, and the first comes from Farallon, who introduced the EtherMac iPrint Adapter SL. This model of the iPrint connects serial-based StyleWriter printers without LocalTalk support to the iMac's 10Base-T Ethernet port. Like Farallon's solution for LocalTalk printers, the now-shipping EtherMac iPrint Adapter LT, the SL version of the iPrint will cost $99, and Farallon expects to ship it in September of 1998. [ACE]
Set Password Activation Time in Snow Leopard
In Snow Leopard, you can now set an amount of time after your Mac goes to sleep or engages the screen saver before it requires a password to log back on. In Leopard, the option was simply to require the password or not. Choose among several increments, between 5 seconds and 4 hours, from System Preferences > Security.
