DiskWarrior Update Adds Mac OS 9 Support -- Alsoft's repair utility DiskWarrior has been updated to version 1.1, taking advantage of file system improvements introduced in Mac OS 9 (see "Fighting Corruption with Alsoft's DiskWarrior" in TidBITS-486). DiskWarrior 1.1 now repairs overlapped files larger than 2 GB, as well as disks with folders containing more than 32,000 items (previously, the fix could be made, but not verified). AppleScript scripts for DiskWarrior also work better under non-English systems. The free DiskWarrior 1.1 Updater is a 588K download. [JLC]
Close Word Comments Easily
If you don't like how precisely you must mouse in Microsoft Word 2008 to delete comment balloons, note that you can Control-click (right-click) a balloon to pop up a contextual menu. From the menu choose Delete Comment, and you're done.
Also, to get rid of all comments at once, choose Tools > Customize Keyboard and set up a keyboard shortcut to go with the DeleteAllComments command, available in the Tools category. Oddly, there's no Delete Comment keyboard customization option that I can find.
