Help Translate TidBITS -- We'd like to congratulate Heike Kurtz, who coordinates the volunteers who translate TidBITS into German each week, on the birth of her son, Martin. The German translation has been ably coordinated by Hartmut Greiser in Heike's absence, but now that she's back, she's hoping to increase the size of the German translation team. If you're interested in helping to make TidBITS available to the German-speaking world, check out the German Web page below for a description of what's involved and how to get started. Other translations are looking for more volunteers as well, so if you'd like to help translate TidBITS into Chinese, Dutch, French, or Japanese, check out the links below. If you're interested in translating TidBITS into other languages, contact me at <firstname.lastname@example.org> and we'll see if we can put together the necessary translation team. [ACE]
Turn Off Filename Extension Warning
In Leopard, Apple fixed an annoying aspect of working with the Finder in Tiger. Previously, if you changed a file's extension, the Finder prompted for confirmation. But since no one has ever accidentally changed a filename extension, Apple thankfully added an option to turn that warning off in the Leopard Finder's preferences. Choose Finder > Preferences, and in the Advanced screen, deselect Show Warning Before Changing an Extension.
