Disable Caps Lock

If you find yourself pressing the Caps Lock key accidentally as much as I do, note that you can disable it entirely in Mac OS X. Open the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane, click the Modifier Keys button, and in the dialog that appears, select No Action from the Caps Lock pop-up menu. You could remap it to another modifier instead, but that might make using differently configured Macs more difficult.

Macworld Expo NY Netter's Dinner -- After attending this year's Netter's Dinner at Macworld Expo in San Francisco, Al Tucker volunteered to organize a Netter's Dinner for Macworld New York. The Web page below will contain more information once the final plans (hopefully including registration via Kagi) are set in stone. For now, mark your calendar for meeting in the lobby of the Jacob Javits Center on Wednesday 08-Jul-98 at 6:00 PM. The dinner will cost $30 per person and will be held at a small restaurant within walking distance from the show. To sign up, send email to Al at <act@comm.rockefeller.edu> noting the number of people in your group so he can work up a head count. [ACE]
