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.

 
 

VideoShop 1.0 Free Offer

Send Article to a Friend

SyQuest and DiVA are offering a free full working version of DiVA's VideoShop 1.0 pre-loaded on 5.25" removable SyQuest cartridges. (You do have to buy a 44 MB or 88 MB cartridge, though.) Most SyQuest integrators are offering the deal, which ends 30-Apr-93, although it may be extended a few more weeks. Some bundling deals are also offered (drive, software, and video capture card), although they may vary. DiVA and SyQuest will provide full technical support.

VideoShop, a QuickTime-based video editor for creating and editing digital movies on a Mac, retails for $599. The cartridges also include a HyperCard edition of the VideoShop manual (you can order a hard copy if you want), a library of video and sound clips from The Image Bank CD Collection, and the SyQuest/SCSI Probe utility for mounting any cartridge.

If you are thinking about getting into multimedia and you own a SyQuest removable, this deal is hard to pass up. You can try your hands at multimedia without the large investment of camcorder, hard drives, software, etc. The software alone is worth the price of a hard drive, but you can own it for the price of a cartridge! For more info, contact your local SyQuest dealer or call SyQuest at 800/245-CART.
