Editing iCal Events in Snow Leopard

Snow Leopard makes looking at event details in iCal easier. In the Leopard version of iCal, you had to double-click an event to reveal only some information in a pop-up box; you then needed to click the Edit button (or press Command-E) to edit an item's information. In Snow Leopard, choose Edit > Show Inspector (or press Command-Option-I) to bring up a floating inspector that provides an editable view of any items selected in your calendar.

Microsoft has updated Office 2011 to version 14.3.8, a maintenance release that’s focused solely on tightening security. According to the relevant security bulletin, the update addresses two privately reported vulnerabilities that could allow remote code execution with a specially crafted Excel file. It also notes that those who use Office 2011 with administrative user rights could be more impacted than those with more restrictive user permissions. (Free update via the Office for Mac Web site or through Microsoft AutoUpdate, 113 MB)

I see no posts from folks unable to update Office on Mountain Lion 10.8.5, but just in case I'm wasn't the only TidBITS reader who experienced that, I found this post:

I did an OS X Restore (a Command-R restart) and the update then installed (the Flash update, too).
