Move the Dock Quickly

You may find it convenient to move the position of the Dock when working in certain programs or with certain files. Rather than choosing a different position from the Dock preferences pane or using a submenu in the Apple menu's Dock submenu, you can move your Dock to a different screen edge merely by Shift-dragging the separator that divides the application and document sections.

iDo Script Scheduler 1.1

Send Article to a Friend

iDo Script Scheduler 1.1 -- Sophisticated Circuits has released version 1.1 of its iDo Script Scheduler, a system enhancement that enables users to schedule execution of AppleScript scripts. iDo Script Scheduler debuted as a free extra on the Mac OS 8.6 CD-ROM and on Apple's AppleScript site; it could schedule up to three scripts for automatic execution. (See "Putting URL Access Scripting to Work" in TidBITS-481.) Version 1.1 still offers a free "lite" mode that's compatible with Mac OS 9's multiple users feature, enabling different users of the same Mac to schedule up to three scripts for automatic execution; iDo Script Scheduler can also pass arbitrary parameters to scripts when it runs them. For $25, you can upgrade version 1.1 to an "enhanced" version that allows for an unlimited number of scheduled scripts and can execute scripts at system idle time or in response to a hot key. The iDo Script Scheduler is a great add-on for serious AppleScript users, particularly under Mac OS 9, which enables AppleScript scripts to connect to remote file servers and applications over the Internet.
