Turn Off Filename Extension Warning

In Leopard, Apple fixed an annoying aspect of working with the Finder in Tiger. Previously, if you changed a file's extension, the Finder prompted for confirmation. But since no one has ever accidentally changed a filename extension, Apple thankfully added an option to turn that warning off in the Leopard Finder's preferences. Choose Finder > Preferences, and in the Advanced screen, deselect Show Warning Before Changing an Extension.

Connectix has announced plans to port RAM Doubler to the Power Macs sometime in the next few months. I don't believe the current version works on the Power Macs under emulation mode, which isn't too surprising given the low level at which it hooks into the operating system.
