Option-Click in Scroll Bars for Jump Scrolling

In Mac OS X in general, and thus in most native Mac OS X applications, hold down the Option key and click anywhere in a window's scroll bar to jump to that spot (rather than scrolling one screen). If you like this behavior, you can make it the default in the Appearance preference pane. For "Click in the scroll bar to:" select "Jump to here."

Quicken Online Banking Updater -- Last week, Intuit released the Online Banking Updater for Quicken 6.0, which updates Quicken 6 from R2 to R5. The package includes an updater application plus new versions of some files that ship with Quicken. Intuit has made three versions of the updater available; the one you need depends on the version of Quicken you have installed (68K, PowerPC, or "Universal"). The updates range between about 2.5 MB and 3.5 MB; read the directions on using the update before downloading it. /quicken/releases/qfm6-releases/

In addition to online banking features, Intuit says the update fixes a "handful" of problems reported by customers, although it's not clear whether this includes issues reported in TidBITS-308. [GD]
