Opening a Folder from the Dock

Sick of the dock on Mac OS X Leopard not being able to open folders with a simple click, like sanity demands and like it used to be in Tiger? You can, of course click it, and then click again on Open in Finder, but that's twice as many clicks as it used to be. (And while you're at it, Control-click the folder, and choose both Display as Folder and View Content as List from the contextual menu. Once you have the content displaying as a list, there's an Open command right there, but that requires Control-clicking and choosing a menu item.) The closest you can get to opening a docked folder with a single click is Command-click, which opens its enclosing folder. However, if you instead put a file from the docked folder in the Dock, and Command-click that file, you'll see the folder you want. Of course, if you forget to press Command when clicking, you'll open the file, which may be even more annoying.

I was an iWeb "orphan". I had made a list based site that had listed all my CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays. When I found out it was going to be another non supported Apple item... again (Apple HomePage) being the first, I panicked. I purchased a Web Page from Hover and began my search for a Web Page builder as elegant as iWeb. I tried 3 different web Page builders before trying Sandvox. As much as it worked it couldn't let me "free form" my pages. That is... put my text boxes and graphics on the page freely "by hand". My next move was to the Adobe (Beta) MUSE. This is a "free form" app. of the first degree. The problem with MUSE was that it takes so long to Save (Save changes to a page and Save to shut down) and to "upload" a site (3 hours or more). Anyhow all is mute because what Apple has done with iTunes and the iCloud I dont need to do anything but sit back and enjoy everything with my "new" iPad (third generation)... When I think of all the hours I spent making those lists
