Adjust Multiple Column Sizes Simultaneously

Within the Finder, Column View enables you to see folder hierarchies, with each subsequent level getting its own column. Dragging on the double lines at the base of a column divider changes the preceding column's width. But Option-drag on any divider, and all the columns in the window change to the same width.

Paul Celestin <celestin@olympus.net> writes:

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]
