Time for a Fetch Refresh?

In the Fetch FTP client, if you see a time stamp like "As of 6/19/10 2:29 PM" above the file list, that means that Fetch is re-using a file list it downloaded earlier. Click the swooshing-arrow refresh button (located beside the time stamp) to refresh the list.

You recently mentioned the AppleCD 300 as a holiday gift. If you have a Mac that takes the internal AppleCD 300i, which is about $100 to $150 less than the external version, you may be out of luck for the near future. A project manager I know at Apple told me that the drives are ridiculously back ordered; the Apple Store doesn't have them; and he had to arrange an internal trade to get one (for money even) for a relative. My employer ordered one from Computer City's local outlet in September, and it took two months to arrive because of the backlog. The best advice my Apple contact offered is that if you buy a new Macintosh, don't wait for a separate CD-ROM, because it could be a long wait. Instead, buy a configuration that includes the CD-ROM, because Apple has reserved that supply.
