With Apple’s phaseout of MobileMe driving another nail in iWeb’s coffin, iWeb users might be particularly interested to check out Karelia’s Sandvox 2.1 for creating and maintaining Web sites. Sandvox 2.1 adds compatibility with Mac OS X Lion, a Clear Styles command that makes migrating content from other systems easier, and a Block Quote object. Other changes include performance improvements and bug fixes. Through 31 July 2011, Sandvox is available at 25 percent off for iWeb users with the coupon code “iWeb Graduate” and Karelia also offers a transition guide for anyone switching from iWeb to Sandvox. ($77 new, $47 upgrade from Sandvox 1, free update from Sandvox 2.0, 29.2 MB, release notes)
Set Password Activation Time in Snow Leopard
In Snow Leopard, you can now set an amount of time after your Mac goes to sleep or engages the screen saver before it requires a password to log back on. In Leopard, the option was simply to require the password or not. Choose among several increments, between 5 seconds and 4 hours, from System Preferences > Security.
