Fun Way to Send Attachments in Mail

If you're working in a file that you want to attach to a message in Apple Mail, you can transfer the file to Mail easily: From the title bar of the file's window, drag the little proxy icon to Mail's icon on the Dock. Your Mac will make Mail the active application and open a new outgoing message, with the file attached.

(If your icon won't drag, the file probably isn't saved.)

Ralph Amundesen wrote with some interesting information about IBM. Evidently, IBM is so worried about OS/2 that the company has expanded its battalion of salesbots by drafting the entire company. I don't know if this will go as far as dark-suited IBM folks out pounding the pavement ("Excuse me, Ma'am, may I come in and demonstrate what OS/2 2.0 can do for you today?"), but all 344,000 employees are in it for fun and prizes. It's a step up from grade school, but IBM employees could win medals, IBM software, IBM hardware, or even cold hard cash. I sure hope they don't stop in here since I don't have 30 MB free under SoftPC to test it. Sheesh, wouldn't you think it would be easier to just buy a few TV spots like Microsoft is doing?
