The Mac world has another podcast - OWC Radio, from hardware retailer Other World Computing. Hosted by Tim Robertson, founder of MyMac.com, the interview was a relaxed conversation that included some stories from the early history of TidBITS and Take Control, what's going on with Macworld Expo this year, and Tim's probing questions into Adam's opinions on desktops vs. laptops, Safari vs. Firefox, and... coffee vs. tea? follow link
Copy Before Submitting Web Forms
Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.
