Mac OS X Zip Expanding Utility

Firefox (and possibly other applications) may ask you what you want to do with .zip archives that you download from the Internet. If you want to expand them with Mac OS X (rather than StuffIt Expander), you may be unsure of which application actually does the job. You're looking for Archive Utility (in Leopard and later) or BOMArchiveHelper (in Tiger). In either case, the application is stored in Hard Drive/System/Library/Core Services/. Don't move it from there, though, or you'll confuse matters.

Eudora Pro 4.0.1 Updater Released

Send Article to a Friend

Eudora Pro 4.0.1 Updater Released -- Qualcomm has released a free updater that takes Eudora Pro 4.0 to version 4.0.1. Although the update adds few new features, it includes many small tweaks, including vastly improved find performance within the Filters window, improved HTML parsing and performance, better nickname completion performance, and the capability to send copies of both styled and plain text in a single message using MIME. In addition, I recently learned of a neat feature that also exists in Eudora Pro 4.0: To see which filters have been applied to a selected message, press Shift and choose Filters from the Windows menu. Eudora responds by opening the Filters window with the applied filters selected. Although there's nothing earth-shattering in Eudora Pro 4.0.1, the improvements are well worth the 2.3 MB download.
