Worm Alert! Don't miss this week's coverage of Autostart-9805, a data-destroying worm to watch out for. Also, Adam looks at the sorry state of software documentation and offers suggestions for improvements. Plus, we note an update to Eudora Internet Mail Server, the new Apple/HP agreement on Mac printers, Dantz's Retrospect Driver 1.4, MindVision's free Installer VISE license for freeware and shareware developers, and ludicrous ZipPlus problems.
