Keep It Up 2.0.1 Adds Remote Management -- Karl Pottie has released Keep It Up 2.0.1, a major upgrade to his $22 shareware server application monitoring tool. Along with a few tweaks from the previous 1.4.1 version, Keep It Up 2.0.1 adds the capability to manage your Mac server remotely via a Web browser. Through its embedded Web server (which runs on a user-specified port and is password-protected), Keep It Up 2.0.1 can provide general information about your server (including uptime, system load, free memory, and free disk space), restart or shut down the machine, quit running applications, and launch user-specified applications. Although Keep It Up 2.0.1 won't replace a remote control tool like Timbuktu Pro, the new features are extremely welcome. Keep It Up 2.0.1 is a 235K download. [ACE]
New Documents in Snow Leopard's TextEdit
In the Snow Leopard version of TextEdit, you can now create a new document by Control-clicking TextEdit's Dock icon (when it's running), and choosing New Document from the pop-up menu. This isn't a major feature, of course, since you can also just press Command-N while in TextEdit, but consider Control-clicking other applications' Dock icons to see what functions they might make available.
