Edit iCal Event Titles Directly

In the Leopard version of iCal, double-clicking an event shows a summary of the event, and to edit the name (or anything else), you must click the Edit button in the summary pop-up. To bypass the summary and edit pop-ups entirely, Option-double-click the event name. That selects the text for editing, and you can make any changes you want. Click outside the event to save your changes.

LC III Quirk -- Matt Strange writes:

After a frustrating few hours trying to configure some LC IIIs yesterday, I discovered something you may not know - but definitely should.

According to Katie Kenny of Farallon, "Due to a last minute change in the design of the LC III, any add-on card that has an FPU on it will crash the machine." [Indeed it will!] "The remedy is to remove the FPU from the card and put it in the socket on the motherboard."

My experience showed this to be a real problem and a real solution. Hope this saves you a headache down the road somewhere.
