Fun Way to Send Attachments in Mail

If you're working in a file that you want to attach to a message in Apple Mail, you can transfer the file to Mail easily: From the title bar of the file's window, drag the little proxy icon to Mail's icon on the Dock. Your Mac will make Mail the active application and open a new outgoing message, with the file attached.

(If your icon won't drag, the file probably isn't saved.)

VST Drives Zip Extension to 1.1 -- VST Technologies made its Zip100 Driver version 1.1 available, which adds Mac OS 8.1 compatibility and fixes annoying performance delays for users of VST's internal PowerBook Zip drives. Kudos goes out to VST's tech support group, who sent the updated extension via email to users that had contacted VST about the problems. The driver is a 35K download from VST's revamped Web site.
