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.

Book News -- I haven't completed my book about connecting to the Internet from a Mac, but the major creative work is done, and I'm finishing the back matter now. I think this book will be extremely cool, and I hope to reprint some of the text here, although it will take some rewording to remove screen shot references. I have full chapters on the four major ways to gain Internet access - email through a BBS or commercial service like CompuServe, terminal access on a Unix machine, UUCP access using the three main UUCP programs for the Mac, and finally MacTCP access, expressly covering SLIP usage as well. The contents of the disk may surprise you (and I don't want to say anything concrete until all the papers have been signed), and for those not already on the Internet, there will be an immediate access method.
