TidBITS Updates -- The rapidity of important news releases surrounding the clone licensing situation recently prompted us to launch a Web-based project we'd been considering for some time. When news breaks after we've published an issue of TidBITS, as it has for the last few weeks, we'll provide a tight summary on our TidBITS Updates page (with headlines on our home page). We also plan to publish announcements of important software releases, occasional letters to the editor, and information about other appropriate topics. As with TidBITS, however, TidBITS Updates will focus on what we consider to be the most important news, not everything that happens. We're still completing our internal tools for TidBITS Updates, so, for now, use our home page to access TidBITS Updates content. [ACE]
Sleep (and Lock) Your Screen
When you are walking away from your computer, it's fairly common practice to start your screen saver and lock your screen. But did you know that there is a built-in keyboard shortcut in Mac OS X to sleep the screen?
Press Control-Shift-Eject and your monitor sleeps without engaging the screen saver.
