I Think I Felt the Earth Move -- Users of the AppleScript, Frontier, Nisus, and QuicKeys archives at <gaea.kgs.ukans.edu> might be in for a shock: the long-standing scripting archive site will soon be gone. However, thanks to the efforts of Fred Terry <email@example.com> and the generosity of Jaeson Engle and Acme Technologies, gaea has a new home on a Mac at ScriptWeb. The new archive site is running now, and all files should be updated within a week. Thanks to all involved in keeping this valuable resource on the nets, and thanks to the Kansas Geological Survey for letting the archives remain on the original site for the last two and a half years.

Mac OS X Zip Expanding Utility
Firefox (and possibly other applications) may ask you what you want to do with .zip archives that you download from the Internet. If you want to expand them with Mac OS X (rather than StuffIt Expander), you may be unsure of which application actually does the job. You're looking for Archive Utility (in Leopard and later) or BOMArchiveHelper (in Tiger). In either case, the application is stored in Hard Drive/System/Library/Core Services/. Don't move it from there, though, or you'll confuse matters.
