Enter Dashboard, Expose, or Spaces Temporarily

Hold down F9, F10, F11, or F12 (or whatever you've set for the Expose and Spaces keyboard shortcuts) for a few seconds, and then release the key to enter and leave the appropriate mode without having to press the key again.

TidBITS Servers Moving -- Sometime late this week, we'll physically move our servers to the new location of Point of Presence Company, our Web and mailing list host. Web and email services will probably be down for at least a few hours; don't worry if it takes a day or two more for the new DNS entries to update properly everywhere. [ACE]
