    Looking for scheduled reboot utility

    KeepItUp would "click" dialog windows to prevent a server from being paused while waiting on a keypress. I think it would also reboot the machine. I don't remember if it did any kind of scheduled rebooting. I do remember scheduled reboot utilities, but can't recall any names at the moment...

    Running a MacSE/30 without an analog board?

    CRTs and the future of compact Mac preservation

    In the interface, would there be a way to "code" it such that the 512x384 is centered on the display and the excess pixels are simply blacked out? Perhaps that would be more usable for 640x480 screens, which would leave 64 pixel margins top and bottom and 48 pixel margins on the sides. With...
