Mac OS X Zip Expanding Utility

Firefox (and possibly other applications) may ask you what you want to do with .zip archives that you download from the Internet. If you want to expand them with Mac OS X (rather than StuffIt Expander), you may be unsure of which application actually does the job. You're looking for Archive Utility (in Leopard and later) or BOMArchiveHelper (in Tiger). In either case, the application is stored in Hard Drive/System/Library/Core Services/. Don't move it from there, though, or you'll confuse matters.

Survey happenings -- Thanks to all those who have returned the survey! We've decided to stop considering survey entries for buttons as of 17-Mar-92, which is one month after we sent it out, so please get your survey in if you wish to be in the running for a button. The survey is available from our Internet fileserver and is in TidBITS-107, and you can return via email to any of our addresses or via snail mail to the address above. For those of you who are redistributing TidBITS to a local mailing list or network, I'd appreciate it a lot if you could send me a note telling me where you are redistributing and approximately how many people are reading each issue if you can tell. Thanks!
