eWorld Email Changes -- Several TidBITS readers on eWorld wrote us last week saying they received TidBITS as file attachments with a 25K preview rather than as a series of messages. These changes are reminiscent of those AOL recently inflicted on its users (see TidBITS-292 and TidBITS-294); however, it looks like the attached files arrive as Macintosh text files rather than DOS text files, so at least they're immediately useful without conversion. We haven't changed anything about the way we send issues to eWorld; if eWorld's new mail handling is causing you problems, please ask someone at eWorld about the changes. [GD]
Sleep (and Lock) Your Screen
When you are walking away from your computer, it's fairly common practice to start your screen saver and lock your screen. But did you know that there is a built-in keyboard shortcut in Mac OS X to sleep the screen?
Press Control-Shift-Eject and your monitor sleeps without engaging the screen saver.
