Move the Dock Quickly

You may find it convenient to move the position of the Dock when working in certain programs or with certain files. Rather than choosing a different position from the Dock preferences pane or using a submenu in the Apple menu's Dock submenu, you can move your Dock to a different screen edge merely by Shift-dragging the separator that divides the application and document sections.

Tonya was one for two last week. Her expose of space aliens calling technical support brought in reprint requests from three continents (and yes, please feel free to reprint that article as long as you credit Tonya and TidBITS fully, and please send us a copy of the publication - use the address at the end of the issue). At the same time, her article on the AV Macs had a few mistakes, which we correct below. We also hope to have some detailed first hand reports soon, which should help you decide for yourself about these fascinating Macs. Hey, I want one.
