Disable Caps Lock

If you find yourself pressing the Caps Lock key accidentally as much as I do, note that you can disable it entirely in Mac OS X. Open the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane, click the Modifier Keys button, and in the dialog that appears, select No Action from the Caps Lock pop-up menu. You could remap it to another modifier instead, but that might make using differently configured Macs more difficult.

Ross Brown <ross@bnr.ca> writes in regard to the Usenet Macintosh Programming Awards mentioned in TidBITS-278:

I'll point out, as I did to those present at the awards ceremony at WWDC, that all of this year's winners are from outside the U.S. This adds some substance to Apple's claim that the Macintosh is a growing force in global computing.
