Dartmouth TidBITS Mirror Gone -- Those of you who have been reading TidBITS for years may remember that issues of TidBITS were originally made available on the Web at Dartmouth College's site, back in 1994. William Murphy converted the issues from setext to HTML, and Andy Williams kindly made the space available on the Dartmouth Web server. In subsequent years, of course, we focused on our own Web server, but Randy Spydell helped us maintain a mirror of TidBITS issues at the Dartmouth site. Dartmouth has decided to remove the mirror (which is no longer as necessary as it was initially), but they've left redirects in place from the main TidBITS page there. Nonetheless, if you're still using the Dartmouth pages, now's the time to switch over to our main site. Thanks to William, Andy, and Randy for all their help over the years! [ACE]
Open a Finder Window with the App Switcher
If you don't have any Finder windows open and want to switch to the Finder and open a window in one fell swoop, bring up the app switcher with Command-Tab and tab over to the Finder icon. While still holding down Command, press the Option key, and then release the Command key. You're switched to the Finder, with a new default window open for you.
