No Issue Labor Day -- In the continuing administrative saga, our planned server move last week was delayed by the just-resolved US West strike, so the move will happen in the future. More immediately, we're taking the next issue off, nominally because it's the Labor Day holiday in the United States, and what better way to celebrate than by not working? In fact, Tonya and I have friends visiting and Jeff Carlson is working to finish his PalmPilot Visual QuickStart Guide for Peachpit Press. If we're lucky, the weather won't decide to follow the stock markets into the doldrums. [ACE]
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.
