Edit iCal Event Titles Directly

In the Leopard version of iCal, double-clicking an event shows a summary of the event, and to edit the name (or anything else), you must click the Edit button in the summary pop-up. To bypass the summary and edit pop-ups entirely, Option-double-click the event name. That selects the text for editing, and you can make any changes you want. Click outside the event to save your changes.

Bring Your Own Badge -- This week, TidBITS celebrates its eighth anniversary, making it one of the oldest and largest edited publications on the Internet. We've marked previous anniversaries by writing about TidBITS history (see "TidBITS 7.0" in TidBITS-375), but this year we created TidBITS Web badges, which we hope loyal TidBITS readers will display on Web pages (or corporate memos, bumper stickers, forehead tattoos, etc.). If you've been reading TidBITS for years, check out the badges saying "TidBITS Reader Since 1904, 1990, 1991, 1992," and so on. Other badges sport slogans like, "The Best Bits are TidBITS" and "Powered By ASCII." Suggestions for new silly badges are welcome. Also, you'll find special badges for TidBITS authors and sponsors, and for linking to a software review in TidBITS. The TidBITS Badges Web page contains the badges plus sample HTML code. [TJE]
