Avoid Simple Typos

If, like me, you find yourself typing 2911 in place of 2011 entirely too often, you can have Mac OS X (either Lion or Snow Leopard) fix such typos for you automatically. Just open the Language & Text pane of System Preferences, click the Text button at the top, and then add a text substitution by clicking the + button underneath the list. It won't work everywhere (for that you'll want a utility like Smile's TextExpander), but it should work in applications like Pages and TextEdit, and in Save dialog boxes.

Video Solution vs. 840AV -- Mark Anbinder writes:

According to Apple, the Apple Professional Video Production Solution, announced on 03-Jan-94 but not yet shipping, is not compatible with the Quadra 840AV. Early product data sheets incorrectly indicated that the bundle could be used with the 840AV, as well as the Quadra 800 and 950 models.

The Professional Video Production Solution bundle includes a Storage Dimensions MacInStor SpeedArray 2 GB external hard disk that interfaces with the processor direct slot on the Quadra 800 and 950; the 840AV lacks a PDS and does not support the disk.
