Turn Off Filename Extension Warning

In Leopard, Apple fixed an annoying aspect of working with the Finder in Tiger. Previously, if you changed a file's extension, the Finder prompted for confirmation. But since no one has ever accidentally changed a filename extension, Apple thankfully added an option to turn that warning off in the Leopard Finder's preferences. Choose Finder > Preferences, and in the Advanced screen, deselect Show Warning Before Changing an Extension.

Our sincere apologies for missing the netters' dinner last week in Boston. I was stricken with the Martian Death Flu on Thursday, and decided that a three-hour nap in the middle of the day was the better part of valor (and dinner). The alternative was to fall asleep on the floor of the Apple Pavilion and be trod on by the multitudes wending their way through to the eWorld demo. And that wouldn't be much fun... . Tonya opted out of navigating the wilds of Boston at night alone, especially since her throat was feeling a bit ragged and she didn't want to get sick too. [ACE]
