Enter Dashboard, Expose, or Spaces Temporarily

Hold down F9, F10, F11, or F12 (or whatever you've set for the Expose and Spaces keyboard shortcuts) for a few seconds, and then release the key to enter and leave the appropriate mode without having to press the key again. This is particularly useful for Dashboard, in which you can check the contents of a widget and then return to your work with only a single key press.

PowerBook 2300c Trackpad Fix -- Last week Apple released the PowerBook 2300c Update which is supposed to ensure the PowerBook's trackpad works correctly. Your PowerBook 2300c may already have this extension installed, but if you don't have a file called PowerBook 2300c Update in your Extensions folder, you can download it from Apple. These URLs may change; Apple appears to be reshuffling their PowerBook software. [GD]
