Karl Pottie has released Keep It Up 2.1, the latest version of his widely used server application monitoring tool. Version 2.1 includes a few bug fixes, adds the capability to view log files produced by Keep It Up or other programs via the Web and to quit all programs except for Keep It Up and the Finder. Keep It Up 2.0 added remote management capabilities via a private, password-protected HTTP server, enabling administrators to quit and launch applications, gather system information, or restart the machine. The $22 shareware Keep It Up is a 248K download.
Disable Caps Lock
If you find yourself pressing the Caps Lock key accidentally as much as I do, note that you can disable it entirely in Mac OS X. Open the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane, click the Modifier Keys button, and in the dialog that appears, select No Action from the Caps Lock pop-up menu. You could remap it to another modifier instead, but that might make using differently configured Macs more difficult.
