Removing Photos from iPhoto

Despite iPhoto's long history, many people continue to be confused about exactly what happens when you delete a photo. There are three possibilities.

If you delete a photo from an album, book, card, calendar, or saved slideshow, the photo is merely removed from that item and remains generally available in your iPhoto library.

If, however, you delete a photo while in Events or Photos view, that act moves the photo to iPhoto's Trash. It's still available, but...

If you then empty iPhoto's Trash, all photos in it will be deleted from the iPhoto library and from your hard disk.

Power Mac Office 4.2x Update Update

Power Mac Office 4.2x Update Update -- In TidBITS-289, I reported on questions and quirks relating to the Office 4.2x Update for Power Mac. In the article, I said that Office 4.2x Update for Power Mac, version n/a, has been updated to version 1.01. A few people wrote in asking about Office 4.2x Update for Power Mac 1.0, which may be installed from the Office CD. My contacts at Microsoft have confirmed that version 1.0 is the same as version n/a, so if you have version 1.0 and use either the Global Village Toolbox extension or STF Technologies's FAXstf software, you should replace version 1.0 with version 1.01.

Microsoft has posted the Office 4.2x Update for Power Mac incorrectly, such that you must download it in binary mode. Try downloading the cryptically named file from the URL below using Netscape (which downloads most everything in binary mode), or try using Fetch, which has a Binary button that can force a binary download. Otherwise, configure your FTP client to treat the file suffix ".hqx" as a binary file, and be sure to change the setting back when you're done. [TJE]
