Show Recent Items in Snow Leopard

The Recent Items submenu in the Apple menu is handy, but what if you want to work with a file in there in the Finder, rather than open it? Just press Command when that menu is showing, and all the Applications and Documents change to "Show ... in Finder." This feature is new as of Mac OS X 10.6.3 Snow Leopard.

Happy New Year everyone! Our first New Year's resolution is to clean out the nooks and crannies in our article database, summarizing topics we planned to cover but never found the room. This isn't to imply that this information isn't interesting, merely that we couldn't fit it in among all the rest of the good stuff we've included. Our apologies if these articles do not meet our usual standards for completeness - at this point we decided it was more important to publish them than to flesh them out.

Our second New Year's resolution is to be more ruthless in selecting articles. The pressures facing us are twofold. We have more information than ever before (and we must always be careful of our wrists), but we do not want to increase either the size or the frequency of our issues. Since we have a formula that works well, we're going to stick by our electronic guns. As always, we welcome comments.
