Set Per-Folder Views in the Finder

Tired of navigating to a particular folder and having to switch to List View every time? With Finder in Leopard, you can set viewing preference for each individual folder. Just navigate to it, and set the view the way you want (Column, List, Icon, or Cover Flow). Then choose View > Show View Options (Command-J) and in the window that appears, select the Always Open In... checkbox.

 
 

New Heights of Anarchie

Send Article to a Friend

New Heights of Anarchie -- Peter Lewis <peter@mail.peter.com.au> has released version 1.5 of Anarchie, his highly-regarded Macintosh FTP and Archie client. Version 1.5 now includes Internet Config support, the ability to send raw FTP commands (such as the ever-useful SITE INDEX), improved Finder-like behavior in its directory windows, more complete URL support, and improved file uploading (including handling of MacBinary mode). For those of us who frequently find ourselves locked out of busy servers, there's also a convenient Retry button for failed FTP connections.

Of course, key Anarchie features are still present and, in some cases, improved. Anarchie continues to support the Drag Manager (allowing you to drag files back and forth from the Finder) and continues to be Apple Scriptable and Recordable. Anarchie includes a complete list of Archie servers, an extensive bookmarks file of Mac-related FTP sites, a comprehensive Apple Guide (thanks, Quinn!) and a copy of Internet Config 1.1. If you have a TCP-based connection to the Internet and you don't have Anarchie, well, you probably want it. [GD]
