Disable Caps Lock

If you find yourself pressing the Caps Lock key accidentally as much as I do, note that you can disable it entirely in Mac OS X. Open the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane, click the Modifier Keys button, and in the dialog that appears, select No Action from the Caps Lock pop-up menu. You could remap it to another modifier instead, but that might make using differently configured Macs more difficult.

Eudora Pro 4.0 Finalized -- Qualcomm has released Eudora Pro 4.0 for the Macintosh (we reviewed Eudora Pro 3.0 in TidBITS-357). A demo (6 MB download) is available and the full product should begin shipping today for $39 (no discounts for upgrades). New features include background sending and receiving of email, improved interface aesthetics, simplified filter creation, dockable windows, and numerous minor tweaks. Qualcomm also added support for Internet standards such as LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, an up-and-coming directory services protocol) and ACAP (Application Configuration Access Protocol, which enables system administrators to configure Eudora automatically from a server), as well as viewing and composing of M/HTML messages that include HTML formatting and graphics. This version lacks IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol, an alternate way of retrieving email that's popular in large organizations); IMAP support is slated for version 4.1. Eudora Light remains at version 3.1.3. [ACE]
