Fun Way to Send Attachments in Mail

If you're working in a file that you want to attach to a message in Apple Mail, you can transfer the file to Mail easily: From the title bar of the file's window, drag the little proxy icon to Mail's icon on the Dock. Your Mac will make Mail the active application and open a new outgoing message, with the file attached.

(If your icon won't drag, the file probably isn't saved.)

 
 

PageSentry 4.0 Watches From Mac OS X

PageSentry 4.0 Watches From Mac OS X -- Maxum Development has released the latest version of their server monitoring and management utility. In short, PageSentry constantly monitors an Internet server and performs some action (sends you email, pages you, runs an AppleScript script) should the server fail to respond. (I'm currently using an older version to reboot my IPNetRouter Mac automatically every few hours when one of its Ethernet cards freaks out and loses track of the Internet connection.) PageSentry 4.0 now comes in both Carbon and Classic versions for compatibility with System 7.1 through Mac OS X. New features include enhanced statistics, additional details in the Status window, sorting of sentries, the capability to suspend testing at specific times, and improved Web reporting. PageSentry 4.0 comes in 4 versions that allow varying numbers of sentries, ranging from the $95 PageSentry OneSite (5 sentries) to the $595 PageSentry ISP (500 sentries). [ACE]
