Subject: GraphicConverter/WebDevil for Mac slideshows.

>KeyQuencer Lite for the Macintosh
>Macro Express for Windows 95/98/NT
>The step-by-step instructions to set up the slide show are on the CED Magic
>CD-ROM Support page:
>The slide show runs by simply having the macro program automatically click
>the mouse button at a regular time interval specified when the macro is set
>up. With the mouse pointer properly positioned over one of the links on any
>of the caddy images pages, they will cycle slide show fashion until the
>macro completes or is terminated. For example, if the macro is set to click
>the mouse 1709 times at 10 second intervals, the slide show will display
>all the front sides of the 1709 titles in the database when the mouse
>pointer is positioned over the "Next Title" button. With these settings the
>slide show would take about 4 3/4 hours to complete.

A better program that does slide shows for the Mac is:

GraphicConverter 3.7 [available at or your favorite 
InfoMac ftp mirror] Shareware: $35, startup nag screen.

GraphicConverter has come a long way! It can read and write to many 
existing picture formats, it has a handy slideshow system that's cleaner 
and faster than most slideshow programs, can paint, edit, write comments, 
and the slideshow system has a neat feature where you can assign keys to 
sort your pictures as you use the slideshow, even delete ones you don't 
like, like arrows, buttons, letters, thumbnails, etc...

Improvements I've seen are: More image formats supported (over 4 dozen 
formats, some on Amiga, TRS-80 and Apple II!)
Faster internal non-Quicktime JPEG decoder [Open Image from RAM mode 
Can view by folder or sort everything or view randomly- great slideshow 

This helps if you use:

WebDevil 4.7 [available at] Shareware $20, 
startup nag screen, self-disables in 15 days.

WebDevil is a fast and simple offline Web downloader. It even beat 
TuCows' rating for the clumsy, commercial [and more expensive] WebWhacker 
in its category. It's better than using the Web Archive option in 
Internet Explorer. Feed it a webpage, set the Download options, and how 
far into the webpage you want to go, and it will download EVERYTHING 
[exceptions: Java class images or files under the Java program, items 
under CGI/perl forms, Shockwave-called items] so that you can browse that 
website offline. Works on 95% of all websites. [Does not work on most 
websites that require password entry- authors are working on that.] Great 
for checking your website to see if there are any missing links or bad 

Improvements I've seen: Does not stop on servers protected against 
webleechers [the category WebDevil is under], enters password protected 
sites faster.

Try to get these two programs if you're using Macs. You'll be glad you did.

To: CED Digest <>

Just wanted to re-emphasize to everyone what an
invaluable tool Tom has put together.  I'm speaking
of the CEDMagic web site, of course.  Thanks to
the comprehensive info to be found there, I knew
what function drive belt I needed for my SJT200,
so when I went to the store I just looked for the
number.  I was actually surprised to find one on
the rack.  Once I got it installed, it seems the
player is working better than ever, certainly better
than with the double wrap of rubber bands that had
been doing the loading and unloading.

I just love to fix things, and I'm a little giddy at
the moment.  Just wanted to share the feeling.

Subject: Re:  CED porno
To: (Tom Howe)

One of my favorites is the Vestron Video movie "Chatterbox."  About a girl 
named Penelope who has a singing vagina named Virginia.  Hey don't look at 
me...the word "vagina" actually appears on the disc caddy.  "She talks with 
her what?"  The photo on the front of the caddy is something to see as well!  
 All star cast:  Candice Rialson, Larry Gelman, Jane Kean.  If you know good 
movies you can tell what kind of a film this is since it has Rip Taylor and 
Professor Irwin Corey in it.  I would say finding this movie on CED today 
would be difficult.       Glenn

Subject: stylus

I just had a disc that skipped badly on my SGT250 with a fairly new stylus.
I installed my spare 149000 stylus in place of the 154100 that was skipping.
(The stylus works fine on other discs).

My question is, is there any reason why the older stylus (149000) would be
less prone to skipping than the newer model?

Or is it just a case of a worn stylus and a marginal disc?
