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.

Second Time A Charm?

Second Time A Charm? Last Tuesday Apple released version 1.0.2 of its 7.5.2 Printing Fix, after abruptly pulling version 1.0 from its servers the week before. Then, late Tuesday, Apple pulled that version, restored it a few hours later, then later moved it to a different directory. The extension is supposed to fix a crashing problem on the Power Mac 7200, 7500, 8500, and 9500 when printing to a busy network-based printer. If you need it, grab it while you can. [GD]
