Adjust Multiple Column Sizes Simultaneously

Within the Finder, Column View enables you to see folder hierarchies, with each subsequent level getting its own column. Dragging on the double lines at the base of a column divider changes the preceding column's width. But Option-drag on any divider, and all the columns in the window change to the same width.

More on Cable Modems -- Johann Beda <j-beda@pobox.com> writes in regard to his cable modem connection:

I just got hooked up here in southwestern Ontario with The Wave through the local cable TV provider. I haven't done extensive speed testing, but it feels as fast as my desktop machine when I was working at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with Ethernet to my Mac. The cost was only $80 setup for my Mac with built-in Ethernet. Installation involved plugging the power in to the cable modem and connecting the Ethernet cable, then selecting DHCP in the TCP/IP control panel and telling it to look at wave.ca; the cost also included running a new bunch of cables to the house. The service costs $55 per month plus taxes, so overall, I think it's comparable to an ISP plus a dedicated phone line.
