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.

NewsWatcher 2.1.1 Available

Send Article to a Friend

NewsWatcher 2.1.1 Available -- John Norstad has released version 2.1.1 of his widely-favored Usenet news client NewsWatcher, which offers a number of bug fixes and memory improvements. The update also removes the previous limit of 16,000 groups in the full group list, and fixes a compiler bug that caused last week's version 2.1 to crash on 68000-based Macs (SE, Plus, etc.).

Brian Clark has also released version 2.1.2 of his Yet Another NewsWatcher, based on John Norstad's NewsWatcher code. YA-NewsWatcher features binary and anonymous remailer posting, article filtering via kill files, and article sorting. Brian doesn't plan to make further public releases of YA-NewsWatcher, but it has proved to be a useful and reliable program for people who need its special features. [GD]
