MailBITS/07-Dec-92

Please note that this is the last week Nisus Software is sponsoring TidBITS. If you want Nisus's files from our fileserver, snag them before 14-Dec-92. Once again, to get an index of individual files, send email to <sponsors@tidbits.com> and to receive all the files in one chunk, send email to <nisus-all@tidbits.com>. I hope you find the information useful - I certainly did.

Duo Warning -- Murph Sewall passes on a tale of caution. "I recently heard of a Duo user whose daughter threw "something" (apparently the System Enabler extension) away. Oops! The Duo no longer will start up. Since there are no Duo Docks and no floppy adapters available, the only way to fix it at the moment is to mail the Duo back to Apple." [The moral of the story is to make frequent backups via File Sharing and be careful with things that might corrupt the System file until you have a Duo Dock, MiniDock, or floppy adapter. -Adam]

QuarkXPress and DeskWriter 550C -- Mark H Anbinder writes. "Those of you who are thinking about buying yourselves a gift of a Hewlett-Packard DeskWriter 550C this holiday season should first check your software arsenal. HP has recently discovered, with our help, an incompatibility between the DeskWriter 550C driver and QuarkXPress 3.0. Quark confirmed the problem and said testing showed the current version, XPress 3.1, is fully compatible."
