Enter Dashboard, Expose, or Spaces Temporarily

Hold down F9, F10, F11, or F12 (or whatever you've set for the Expose and Spaces keyboard shortcuts) for a few seconds, and then release the key to enter and leave the appropriate mode without having to press the key again. This is particularly useful for Dashboard, in which you can check the contents of a widget and then return to your work with only a single key press.

WebSTAR 4.2 Optimized for G4s

Send Article to a Friend

WebSTAR 4.2 Optimized for G4s -- StarNine Technologies has unveiled WebSTAR Server Suite 4.2, the latest version of its integrated collection of Internet servers. The collection includes Web, email, FTP and proxy servers as well as database publishing and site searching capabilities. WebSTAR 4.2's primary advance is that the main WebSTAR application and the majority of its components have been optimized for the PowerPC G4 and its Velocity Engine, enabling WebSTAR to process requests faster, especially for dynamically generated material. WebSTAR 4.2 also includes bug fixes and enhancements unrelated to G4 systems - particularly in its email, Lasso Web Publisher, and search components - making the upgrade valuable to all version 4.x owners. Version 4.2 is a free upgrade for owners of WebSTAR 4.x; otherwise, WebSTAR Server Suite is $600 with educational, upgrade, and volume discounts available. [GD]
