Untrash the Trash

Feeling trasher's remorse? On Snow Leopard, you can open the Trash (click the Trash icon in the Dock) and "untrash" individual items there. Select one or more trashed items (files and folders) and choose File > Put Back. This returns the items to where they were when you originally put them in the trash. The keyboard shortcut is Command-Delete - the same as the shortcut for trashing an item in the first place, since in deleting something from the trash you are untrashing it.

FTP Snatching

Send Article to a Friend

FTP Snatching -- In response to our FAQtoid that mentioned how spammers might capture your email address when you visit a Web page, Peter N Lewis <peter@stairways.com.au> noted a sneaky technique involving FTP:

Another way I've heard to snatch an email address when visiting a Web page is by coding an inline image with an FTP URL. The browser then automatically FTPs the file for you to show you the image - but when it anonymously FTPs the file, the browser typically uses your email address as the password (as anonymous FTP should - sending your email address is taken as a signature to abide by the usage guidelines). Thus an unscrupulous FTP server (or Web server using the anonymous FTP inline image) can capture your email address as well.
