AutoShare 3.0 Released -- Mikael Hansen has released version 3.0 of AutoShare, his freeware mailing list manager and auto-responder that works with Eudora Internet Mail Server and Stalker Internet Mail Server. Major new features include support for internal and external subscriber databases, support for MIME digests, additional remote email administration commands, and support for more bounce formats. The most interesting feature is the support for subscriber databases, which enable you to add your own fields. AutoShare communicates with external databases via scripting, which provides good flexibility but can suffer from poor performance. AutoShare 3.0 is a 1.9 MB download. [ACE]
Avoid Simple Typos
If, like me, you find yourself typing 2911 in place of 2011 entirely too often, you can have Mac OS X (either Lion or Snow Leopard) fix such typos for you automatically. Just open the Language & Text pane of System Preferences, click the Text button at the top, and then add a text substitution by clicking the + button underneath the list. It won't work everywhere (for that you'll want a utility like Smile's TextExpander), but it should work in applications like Pages and TextEdit, and in Save dialog boxes.
