This week I'll make like a toggle switch and flip-flop. First I said the AppleCD 300 was impossible to find, then I heard from a bunch of people who had seen them and my local dealer had some, but this past week I've received agonized requests asking what strings I pulled to buy one. Sorry folks, I didn't pull any strings other than lining up early. The drives are shipping, though clearly many dealers don't have them. If it's any consolation for those of you waiting, I like my AppleCD 300 a lot.
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.
