We're back from vacation, which we enjoyed on the whole, but we could have done without the unplanned seven hour bus ride from New York City to Ithaca on a transit-style bus that could barely do 45 miles per hour on the freeway. Isn't traveling fun? For those of you making the pilgrimage to Boston in August, good luck with your flights, and I hope to see you there.
Disable Caps Lock
If you find yourself pressing the Caps Lock key accidentally as much as I do, note that you can disable it entirely in Mac OS X. Open the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane, click the Modifier Keys button, and in the dialog that appears, select No Action from the Caps Lock pop-up menu. You could remap it to another modifier instead, but that might make using differently configured Macs more difficult.
