Cheap Macs Via Apple Employees -- Through 31-Mar-96, Apple is running a program that allows employees to purchase up to four Macs, four Newtons, and four printers at seriously low prices. The program is specifically designed to make it easy for Apple employees to buy Macs for friends and relatives (the employee can order the equipment, and it will be shipped to the recipient and charged to the recipient's credit card). The limitations are that the Apple employees cannot resell the equipment for a profit, they can't sell it to dealers, and they must be able to account for the exact whereabouts of the equipment for a year. So, if you know an Apple employee who might be willing to do you a favor, drop her a line and see if she can send you the price list. Please do not harass anyone about this - the Apple employee may have already used up the quota, may not have the time, or may simply be uncomfortable with ordering the equipment for you.

Mac OS X Zip Expanding Utility
Firefox (and possibly other applications) may ask you what you want to do with .zip archives that you download from the Internet. If you want to expand them with Mac OS X (rather than StuffIt Expander), you may be unsure of which application actually does the job. You're looking for Archive Utility (in Leopard and later) or BOMArchiveHelper (in Tiger). In either case, the application is stored in Hard Drive/System/Library/Core Services/. Don't move it from there, though, or you'll confuse matters.
