Time for a Fetch Refresh?

In the Fetch FTP client, if you see a time stamp like "As of 6/19/10 2:29 PM" above the file list, that means that Fetch is re-using a file list it downloaded earlier. Click the swooshing-arrow refresh button (located beside the time stamp) to refresh the list.

NetPresenz 4.1 Released and Discussed

Send Article to a Friend

NetPresenz 4.1 Released and Discussed -- Peter Lewis of Stairways Software has released version 4.1 of NetPresenz , a popular Web, FTP, and Gopher server. The main area of improvement centers on increased stability under heavy load conditions, but the Web server now includes enhanced CGI support, CGI authentication, and server-side includes for creating dynamic Web pages. You still can't beat NetPresenz's price at $10, and 4.1 is a free upgrade for users who registered after 01-Jan-96. Users who registered prior to that date can upgrade for $5.


Stairways also announced two new mailing lists for discussing NetPresenz and Anarchie. To subscribe, send email to either <> or <>. Since the lists use same kind of on/off addresses we established for managing subscriptions to TidBITS, no commands are necessary. You can also sign up via a Web form for these and other lists that Stairways runs. [ACE]
