If you use the Electric Sheep screensaver, please download this important update, which fixes a bug that caused the previous version to hammer the sheep download server. The update also adds a count of how many times a particular sheep has appeared when you press F4, timestamps log entries, and makes it possible for you to tweak how many sheep are shown based on how often they are played. To learn more about Electric Sheep, see "Top 10 Screensavers for the 21st Century," 23 February 2009. (Free, 16.5 MB)
Disable Caps Lock
If you find yourself pressing the Caps Lock key accidentally as much as I do, note that you can disable it entirely in Mac OS X. Open the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane, click the Modifier Keys button, and in the dialog that appears, select No Action from the Caps Lock pop-up menu. You could remap it to another modifier instead, but that might make using differently configured Macs more difficult.
