Set Password Activation Time in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, you can now set an amount of time after your Mac goes to sleep or engages the screen saver before it requires a password to log back on. In Leopard, the option was simply to require the password or not. Choose among several increments, between 5 seconds and 4 hours, from System Preferences > Security.

Return Eudora Pro 4.0 to the Old Look -- Marc Bizer <mlbizer@mail.utexas.edu> (and others) wrote to address Matt Neuburg's complaint in "The Postman Rings Again" in TidBITS-424. As with almost everything in the consummately flexible Eudora, you can revert to the old look that featured letters instead of icons in the status column of mailboxes. To do so, enter this one-line AppleScript into Script Editor and run it (you will be asked to find Eudora Pro). The script changes your Eudora Settings file; to reverse its action, rewrite the script to set setting 233 to "n" and run it again. [ACE]
