Copy Disk Image as Folder

When you open a .dmg file, a disk image is mounted. You are then generally supposed to copy the contents of that disk image to your hard drive (to your Desktop, your Applications folder, or wherever). But what if you want to copy the whole disk image, including all its contents, as a folder? Hold the Option key, and drag the "proxy icon" in the title bar of the disk image window to the destination in the Finder.

RSI Redux

Send Article to a Friend

RSI Redux -- A recent experience reminded me of my repetitive stress injuries. I participated in a Wired online conference on America Online, and after typing rapidly for an hour, my left hand hurt for several days, so much that I wore my wrist brace in bed for a few nights. It's more or less back to normal now, but it was scary to fall back so quickly, and those of you experiencing problems or recovering, please, be careful. There's a new Web page with good RSI information, along with pictures and even a few MPEG movies - perhaps this is a good time to check it out.

And of course, the RSI Newsletter continues to provide useful information each issue. To subscribe, send email to <majordomo@world.std.com> with "subscribe rsi" in the body of the message.

Also, to read more about RSI, check out TidBITS-134 (carpal tunnel articles) as well as TidBITS-199 and TidBITS-200 (Handeze gloves information - APS <71520.72@compuserve.com> now carries them, so sizing information is in the APS catalog). [ACE]
