Objective Development has released Little Snitch 3.3, a maintenance release to the company’s networking monitoring utility that provides compatibility with OS X 10.9 Mavericks, rejiggers the welcome window, and moves some alerts to Notification Center. The update also improves the behavior of Profile Switching Alerts and when filtering during a system startup, fixes an issue that displayed IP addresses instead of the actual hostnames, improves positioning of the Network Monitor window on multiple display setups, and fixes a bug that prevented a Network Monitor document from being saved from the closing dialog.

Avoid Simple Typos
If, like me, you find yourself typing 2911 in place of 2011 entirely too often, you can have Mac OS X (either Lion or Snow Leopard) fix such typos for you automatically. Just open the Language & Text pane of System Preferences, click the Text button at the top, and then add a text substitution by clicking the + button underneath the list. It won't work everywhere (for that you'll want a utility like Smile's TextExpander), but it should work in applications like Pages and TextEdit, and in Save dialog boxes.
