ListSTAR 2.3 Released -- MCF Software has released ListSTAR 2.3, the latest version of their flexible mailing list management software that works via SMTP or POP. The changes are relatively minor, though welcome, such as automatic renaming of services and address lists when creating new services via templates. Also improved is the Address List editor, which can now handle lists containing more than 32,000 addresses. ListSTAR requires a Mac with a 68030 CPU or better, and at least 4 MB of RAM. It runs in System 7.5 or later, including Mac OS 8 and 9, and Classic mode under Mac OS X. ListSTAR 2.3 costs $275 for new copies, and updates are either $69 (for ListSTAR 2.1 or earlier, or expired MCF Software keys) or free. Evaluation codes are available for the demo versions (10.9 MB for the SMTP version, 7.3 MB for the POP version). [ACE]
Type an em-dash on an iPhone
Typography and punctuation geeks rejoice! It's easy to type an em-dash on the iPhone's or iPod touch's virtual keyboard. To do so, tap the .?123 key to switch to the numeric keypad. Then touch and hold on the Hyphen key to reveal a pop-up strip showing an em-dash. Slide to the em-dash and release your finger.
Note that this basic trick works with many other keys on the virtual keyboard.
