Time for a Fetch Refresh?

In the Fetch FTP client, if you see a time stamp like "As of 6/19/10 2:29 PM" above the file list, that means that Fetch is re-using a file list it downloaded earlier. Click the swooshing-arrow refresh button (located beside the time stamp) to refresh the list.

An Official Microsoft Apology

Send Article to a Friend

Laurel Lammers of Microsoft Word Marketing writes in regard to our article "CompuBigotry" in TidBITS-122:

To Gann Matsuda and all others concerned about the Microsoft Word Speller:

Microsoft values diversity in its workforce and its customer base. We license the dictionaries from another company and we do extensive testing of them. This is an unfortunate coincidence in the suggestion algorithm and does not represent any intention on the part of Microsoft or the outside vendor to offend anyone. We apologize for any offense taken.
