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.

Where Credit Is Due -- Last week in "TidBITS Talk and the TidBITS Talk Archive" in TidBITS-440, I mentioned "borrowing" an idea for a frame-based interface from a Web interface to a now-defunct discussion archive of the Frontier-Talk mailing list, developed by Acorn Software. It turns out the frame-based interface was originally developed by Kyle Jessup of Blue World Communications, makers of Lasso, the product we use to tie our FileMaker-based solution to the Web. [GD]
