Untrash the Trash

Feeling trasher's remorse? On Snow Leopard, you can open the Trash (click the Trash icon in the Dock) and "untrash" individual items there. Select one or more trashed items (files and folders) and choose File > Put Back. This returns the items to where they were when you originally put them in the trash. The keyboard shortcut is Command-Delete - the same as the shortcut for trashing an item in the first place, since in deleting something from the trash you are untrashing it.

MacTech Conference 2011 Announces Sessions

Send Article to a Friend

The organizers of the upcoming MacTech Conference 2011, to be held 2 November 2011 through 4 November 2011 in Los Angeles, have made public the list of speakers and sessions. Aside from Guy Kawasaki’s keynote and a few other joint sessions, the sessions are divided into a Developer Track and an IT Track. Frankly, I’m sad I can’t make it this year, since a number of the sessions look fascinating. Plus, as a hotel-based conference, there will undoubtedly be tons of schmoozing, er... networking time with hundreds of interesting Mac geeks.

I’m also dying to know how Andy Ihnatko’s session for developers, “The Press, and How to Humor Them,” compares to my “Hacking the Press” talk from MacHack and C4 (the link goes to the articles I wrote about it, along with a video of my C4 talk).

If you’re interested in attending MacTech Conference 2011, early-bird pricing of $799 remains available through 8 August 2011.
