Open Links from Mail in the Background

Tired of switching back and forth between Mail and your Web browser every time you click a link in a TidBITS issue or other email message? Here's an easy workaround. Hold down the Command key when you click links in Mail to open them in your browser without switching away from Mail. That way you can keep reading in Mail and then read all the Web pages you've opened.

Truncated Uploads with Fetch

Truncated Uploads with Fetch -- Several people have reported a bug with Fetch 3.0 truncating uploads on PCI Power Macs using Open Transport via a SLIP or PPP connection. Jim Matthews is aware of the problem, but hasn't had a chance to investigate it yet. However, he offers a workaround that might help: using ResEdit, add a resource of type 'NoOT', ID# 256 to Fetch. That resource forces Fetch to use MacTCP calls rather than its Open Transport code and should avoid the problem. Jim also mentioned that there's a known incompatibility with Fetch and 68000 Macs (the Plus, SE, Classic, and PowerBook 100) related to a bug in CodeWarrior 7. He plans to fix this bug and a few others in the forthcoming Fetch 3.0.1. [ACE]
