Copy Before Submitting Web Forms

Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.

La Cie Recalls Drives

La Cie Recalls Drives -- While perusing my Navigator session on CompuServe, I noticed this warning in the Macintosh Hardware forum. I'm currently unable to confirm this due to the timing, but it appears that La Cie has recalled 1,900 of their new 340 MB Tsunami hard drives. The recall applies to drives that La Cie shipped before 21-Jan-94, which apparently had a problem in their ROMs that can result in corrupted files and memory problems. If your drive shipped after 21-Jan-94 and has a sticker "E" under the number "340," it's OK.

La Cie -- 800/288-9919 -- 503/520-1266
