New Documents in Snow Leopard's TextEdit

In the Snow Leopard version of TextEdit, you can now create a new document by Control-clicking TextEdit's Dock icon (when it's running), and choosing New Document from the pop-up menu. This isn't a major feature, of course, since you can also just press Command-N while in TextEdit, but consider Control-clicking other applications' Dock icons to see what functions they might make available.

FreePPP 1.0.5 Available

Send Article to a Friend

FreePPP 1.0.5 Available -- Steve Dagley has released version 1.0.5 of FreePPP, which now scrambles stored passwords (although it doesn't encrypt them), uses resource-based strings for tone and pulse dial commands (for folks with ISDN terminal adapters who may need to modify the strings), and fixes a few bugs. Steve expects version 2.5 of FreePPP to be available in March, so if you don't need features or fixes in 1.0.5, it's probably fine to stick with your current PPP configuration. [GD]
