Macintosh Mailing List Directory -- Apple Computer's Mail List Gnome and noted List Mom, Chuq Von Rospach, recently announced the availability of a totally revamped list of mailing lists related to Apple and the Macintosh. The Apple Mailing Lists site includes both lists that Apple operates and those that are independent and should prove a useful resource for anyone trying to find a list related to a Macintosh topic. If you have a list that's not currently included (Chuq's trying to make this a canonical directory), take a look at some of the currently included lists, then send your entry to <email@example.com>.

Set Password Activation Time in Snow Leopard
In Snow Leopard, you can now set an amount of time after your Mac goes to sleep or engages the screen saver before it requires a password to log back on. In Leopard, the option was simply to require the password or not. Choose among several increments, between 5 seconds and 4 hours, from System Preferences > Security.
