Using Expose within Spaces

To drag a file into an application that's running in another one of your Spaces, use Expose while in Spaces overview mode. First, press F8 to go into Spaces overview mode, then press F9 to Expose all application windows. Hover over the application window you want and wait a moment or press the Space bar, and both that space and that application come to the foreground, ready for you to drop the file.

TidBITS Virtual Server Move: Check Your Spam Filters

Send Article to a Friend

Late last week, we moved our virtual server from Rackspace to Linode in an attempt to eliminate problems related to traffic spikes. In theory, you shouldn’t notice any difference at all, but since we reconfigured the new server from scratch rather than attempting to move the image, it’s possible that some things broke in the process. In fact, lots of little things did break, but we’ve fixed all those that we know about. If you do run across something that doesn’t work right, let me know and we’ll track it down.

However, there is one aspect of the move that may affect you: the IP address of the new virtual server has to be different from the old one, and that change may drop us out of some ISP spam whitelists. (Yahoo is particularly bad about this, but Yahoo’s hyperactive spam filtering has already caused most yahoo.com subscribers to bounce — sorry!)

So, should it come up, our new server is at 173.255.250.214; the previous one was at 184.106.219.205. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, and fingers crossed that the move will eliminate the downtime we’ve experienced of late when one of our articles appeared in Google News or Daring Fireball.
