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.

 
 

Macintosh Mailing List Directory

Send Article to a Friend

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 <postmaster@public.lists.apple.com>.
