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.

Personal Web Sharing

Send Article to a Friend

Personal Web Sharing -- Though it's been somewhat overlooked in recent hoopla regarding Apple and Claris, Apple recently released Personal Web Sharing 1.5, an update to the small-footprint Web server that ships as part of Mac OS 8. Personal Web Sharing 1.5 adds support for aliases, HTTP file uploading, automatic binhexing of downloaded files, and a Personal Web Sharing control strip module. The release also adds some features to the Web Sharing control panel, including the ability to set the server's port number, keep an activity log, and directly configure CGIs and (importantly) MIME types. These new features are aimed more at savvy Web users than casual Internet users, but I've found Apple's Personal Web Sharing to be a surprisingly robust and reliable little server, and the new capabilities are welcome additions. Personal Web Sharing requires Mac OS 8; the download is 1.5 MB. [GD]
