No TidBITS Next Week -- We try to take a couple weeks off every year, especially as summer approaches in the U.S. So, the next issue of TidBITS will appear on 05-Jul-99. However, we'll continue to post TidBITS Updates to our Web site during this time and TidBITS Talk will continue unabated. [JLC]
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.
