A good night's sleep can always be sabotaged through judicious use of the latest computer game, and Rick Holzgrafe knows it. He's just released version 2.1 of his $20 shareware game Solitaire Till Dawn (see TidBITS-246), offering sound effects, clever new display features, and a wonderful "magnetic mouse" option to move cards without clicking, which should reduce aggravation of repetitive stress injuries. Solitaire Till Dawn works fine on any Mac in color or black and white, and the program also includes two new games (I'm addicted to Bisley) for a total of 26. Look at your favorite software archive for Solitaire Till Dawn 2.1 and Rick's other nifty utilities and games. [MHA]
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the best-selling Take Control ebooks.

If you hold down Command-Control-D in a Cocoa-based application that supports AppleSpell, you'll see little dictionary pop-ups for each word that you mouse over. Neat, eh?
