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.

Delicious Library 3.1.4

Send Article to a Friend

Delicious Monster has released Delicious Library 3.1.4 with a modicum of fixes solely for OS X 10.9 Mavericks, including an issue that randomly indented or strangely layered source list items and a bug where shelf items no longer animated when resized or zoomed. The update to the media cataloging app (reviewed by Josh Centers; see “FunBITS: Delicious Library 3,” 1 November 2013) also works around a problem where shelf items without a graphic cover wouldn’t receive a placeholder cover. Delicious Monster also notes that there are two crashes associated with the GeForce graphics drivers found in OS X 10.9.1 that affect 2013 MacBook Pro and iMac models, but they’ve been reported to Apple and it’s hoped that the next Mavericks update will solve them. ($25 new from Delicious Monster Web site and Mac App Store, free update, 77.4 MB)

Just downloaded the latest upgrade yesterday on my mac for delicious library 3 to version 3.1.4. This upgrade has resulted in several different problems with the software now. 1) When I try to add a new item, the item shows as listed but does not display until I close the program and reopen. 2) The items on the shelves now do not display properly, one item at the far right will be half off the shelf and semi-hidden. 3) The icons at the bottom do not change to the actual items screen, i.e., movies, books, gadgets, games, etc, but only changes to the assigned wood for that group. Granted now the indentation problem on the left for all the shelves has been fixed but it resulted in various other problems which are worse than before! Please help fix this! Thank you!

I think you'll need to contact Delicious Monster support on this one - it sounds like a problem with the update, not something that a configuration tweak could fix.
