Cull Graphics Quickly with Preview

You're faced with a folder full of images, and you need to sort through them, trashing some number and keeping the rest. For a quick way to do that, select them all, and open them in Preview (in Leopard, at least). You'll get a single window with each graphic as an item in the drawer. Use the arrow keys to move from image to image, and when you see one you want to trash, press Command-Delete to move it from its source folder to the Finder's Trash. (Delete by itself just removes the picture from Preview's drawer.)

 
 

POCIA Directory

The Providers of Commercial Internet Access (POCIA) Directory contains hundreds of entries for Internet providers, which include addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses, and pricing. It is indexed by area code (for the U.S. and Canada) and by country (for the rest of the world). POCIA is available at the following Web and FTP sites:

http://www.teleport.com/~cci/
ftp://ftp.teleport.com/vendors/cci/pocia/ pocia.txt

If you are an Internet access provider and would like to be listed, email Paul Celestin at <celestin@olympus.net>.

[Note that rather than duplicate effort, I gave Paul the information Internet providers sent me for the second edition of Internet Starter Kit for Macintosh, and although I'll continue to work with him on the list, please send Internet provider information to Paul. -Adam]
