Disable Caps Lock

If you find yourself pressing the Caps Lock key accidentally as much as I do, note that you can disable it entirely in Mac OS X. Open the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane, click the Modifier Keys button, and in the dialog that appears, select No Action from the Caps Lock pop-up menu. You could remap it to another modifier instead, but that might make using differently configured Macs more difficult.

Programs that report system info like Now Profile and TattleTale will also use the new Quadra name." [The enabler is available on <ftp.apple.com> in:

Apple says only that version 1.1 adds support for the Quadra 660AV and doesn't provide any other details, although Ric Ford reported in MacWEEK that it included "other, undocumented fixes as well." -Adam]
