Open Files with App Switcher

Using the Application Switcher to open files can sometimes be faster than hunting for an Application's window or searching through a jam packed Dock for an Application's icon. First grab your file, press Command-Tab, and then drop the file onto the desired application's icon to open it within that program.

IPNetRouter 1.6.3 Gets Dynamic

Send Article to a Friend

IPNetRouter 1.6.3 Gets Dynamic -- Sustainable Software has released version 1.6.3 of IPNetRouter, their popular Internet sharing software, adding one significant feature. For those using IPNetRouter to share a connection that has a dynamically assigned IP number (many consumer level broadband connections have dynamic IP numbers), IPNetRouter 1.6.3 can now work with the free dynamic DNS service at DynDNS.org. Serving as a DynDNS client, IPNetRouter informs the DynDNS servers when your IP address changes so your fixed domain name can be updated to point to the new IP address. Other DynDNS clients for the Mac exist, including James Sentman's free Dynamic DNS Client, but if you're already using IPNetRouter to share your Internet connection, it's more elegant and potentially quicker to have it inform the DynDNS servers of your IP address changes. Upgrades to IPNetRouter 1.6.3 are free to registered users; the program is a 1.4 MB download. [ACE]
