First Annual ZMac 5K Fun Run at Macworld Expo. For those whose idea of exercise is more strenuous than channel surfing, ZiffNet/Mac is holding a 5K (right, 5,120 bytes) fun run at Macworld. I'll definitely be there, along with a number of the sysops, staff, and members of ZiffNet/Mac (and maybe even a MacWEEK reporter or MacUser editor). The run starts at 8:30 AM on Saturday morning, 08-Jan-94. Meet in the parking lot of the Ferry Building at the end of Market Street where it meets the Embarcadero next to the Bay. As you look out over the Bay at the end of Market Street, the Ferry Building is just to the left. Bagels and coffee will be provided after the run. To sign up and insure your share of the bagels, send email to Ben Templin at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
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.
