Re-Order the Fetch Shortcuts Menus

Do you use a shortcuts menu frequently in Fetch? Whether you use the Shortcuts menu bar menu or the "heart" shortcuts pop-up menu in the New Connection dialog, you can change the order of the shortcuts in the menu: Choose Shortcuts > Show Shortcuts to open the Fetch Shortcuts window. Click any column header in the window to change the sort order. The menus will show the shortcuts in the same order as the window.

I Think I Felt the Earth Move

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 <pfterry@sysnet.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.
