Cull Graphics Quickly with Preview

You're faced with a folder full of images, and you need to sort through them, trashing some number and keeping the rest. For a quick way to do that, select them all, and open them in Preview (in Leopard, at least). You'll get a single window with each graphic as an item in the drawer. Use the arrow keys to move from image to image, and when you see one you want to trash, press Command-Delete to move it from its source folder to the Finder's Trash. (Delete by itself just removes the picture from Preview's drawer.)

Overloaded With Extensions

Teng Chou Ming has released the $10 shareware Extension Overload 2.7, a stand-alone DOCMaker document that provides information about 666 extensions, 245 control panels, Easter Eggs, Macintosh error codes, and more. It's smaller than, but otherwise quite similar, to Dan Frakes's InformINIT 8.1 (see "InformINIT: Your Personal Macintosh Informant" in TidBITS 429). Although there's obviously much overlap between the two, they provide complementary information in places. Extension Overload is a 227K download.
