Mac OS X Zip Expanding Utility

Firefox (and possibly other applications) may ask you what you want to do with .zip archives that you download from the Internet. If you want to expand them with Mac OS X (rather than StuffIt Expander), you may be unsure of which application actually does the job. You're looking for Archive Utility (in Leopard and later) or BOMArchiveHelper (in Tiger). In either case, the application is stored in Hard Drive/System/Library/Core Services/. Don't move it from there, though, or you'll confuse matters.

MCF Quickly Releases ListSTAR 2.1 -- Less than two months after the company's acquisition of the ListSTAR mailing list server from 4D, MCF Software has released ListSTAR 2.1, which marks the return (and updating) of ListSTAR/POP. The POP version of ListSTAR, which hadn't received any updates in years, offers essentially all the features of ListSTAR/SMTP (though slower performance) without requiring a dedicated Internet connection. Other improvements in the upgrade, which is free to users of earlier versions, include correctly formatted message IDs, the capability for the SMTP version to co-exist with another SMTP server on the same Mac, easier list creation with less user intervention, and elimination of some AppleScript problems in ListSTAR 2.0. ListSTAR 2.1 costs $275, with free evaluation licenses available. ListSTAR/SMTP 2.1 is a 5 MB download; ListSTAR/POP 2.1 weighs in at a 4.5 MB download. [ACE]
