RAM Doubler 1.5.2 Patch -- The last two issues of TidBITS - TidBITS-278 and TidBITS-279 - reported on Connectix's new RAM Doubler 1.5.2 and 1.5.2a. (To recap, the RAM Doubler 1.5.2a Updater has a higher memory allocation, thus correcting troubles some people had with updating to version 1.5.2; if you successfully updated to version 1.5.2, you don't need 1.5.2a.) If you recently downloaded either RAM Doubler updater, you may have noticed a RAM Doubler 1.5.2 patch. The patch is an extension, and it corrects a freezing problem that happens when you launch Symantec Project Manager 8.0 or 8.0.1 on a Power Macintosh running RAM Doubler 1.5.2. The patch does not correct any other problems. If you need the patch, here's the URL: [TJE]
Expand Finder Columns Quickly
Column view in the Finder is great for navigating through your disk's hierarchy, but the columns often aren't wide enough to show the full names of all the files. To expand a column to a width that will show all file names in their entirety, double-click the handle that you would normally drag to expand or shrink the column. To expand all the visible columns to that width, Option-double-click the handle.
