Sleep (and Lock) Your Screen

When you are walking away from your computer, it's fairly common practice to start your screen saver and lock your screen. But did you know that there is a built-in keyboard shortcut in Mac OS X to sleep the screen?

Press Control-Shift-Eject and your monitor sleeps without engaging the screen saver.

New Clay Basket and a Native Frontier

New Clay Basket and a Native Frontier -- Last week was a big one for Dave Winer. First, he released a new beta (1.0b5) of Clay Basket, his online outliner, bookmark handler, and (most recently) Web site manager.

Clay Basket has numerous features that tie in with versions 1.1 and 2.0 of Netscape Navigator and (of course) Frontier. Clay Basket has some rough edges, but Dave's been making outliners for years and his experience shows. What's more, Sandra Silcot (whose HTML Macros made Nisus Writer a highly effective Web publishing tool) is developing a set of pages about getting started with Clay Basket.

In addition, users of UserLand Frontier (or its free incarnation, Aretha; see TidBITS-279) will be pleased to know that a public beta of a Power Macintosh native version of Frontier was made available last week. Preliminary tests show astounding performance improvements (though Frontier was previously no slouch). Users doing processor-intensive tasks with Frontier or who use it as a CGI engine on a Macintosh Web server will be pleased with the results. [GD]
