New Documents in Snow Leopard's TextEdit

In the Snow Leopard version of TextEdit, you can now create a new document by Control-clicking TextEdit's Dock icon (when it's running), and choosing New Document from the pop-up menu. This isn't a major feature, of course, since you can also just press Command-N while in TextEdit, but consider Control-clicking other applications' Dock icons to see what functions they might make available.

Blind Luck and the RSA Data Security Challenge

Send Article to a Friend

TidBITS reader Cerebus the Aadvark <kreme@kreme.com> sent us email commenting on the RSA Data Security Challenge coverage in TidBITS 402. We noted that Peter Stuer's Intel-based PC from the STARlab Bovine Team solved the RSA 56-bit challenge. Cerebus wrote, "the majority of the computers in STARLab were Macs, and Peter lamented the fact that the solution hadn't been found on one of the Macs. In fact, the Apple Evangelistas team, despite spotting everyone a hundred-day lead, processed far more keys than any other team. Also, you should have pointed out that which machine 'broke' the key was a matter of plain blind luck. We're going to kick major butt on the 64-bit challenge! "
