Farallon Announces 11 Mbps SkyLINE Card -- Farallon Communications has announced a version of the company's SkyLINE 802.11 wireless networking card that runs at 11 Mbps instead of the previous speed of 2 Mbps. Due to ship in April, the AirPort-compatible PC Card provides wireless Ethernet access to recent PowerBooks (the 2400, 3400, and G3 Series, with planned support for the 190, 1400, and 5300) and portable PCs with Type II PC Card slots running Windows 95, 98, or NT (with support for Windows 2000 planned). Farallon has yet to announce a price for the 11 Mbps SkyLINE card, but will offer an upgrade for users of the 2 Mbps card at a reduced price. [ACE]
Avoid Long Hierarchical Menus
If you right-click (or Control-click) on some item, such as a file in the Finder, and one of the sub-menus has many options (Open With is a frequent culprit), it may take several seconds to open, even on a fast machine, which is annoying if you did not actually want that sub-menu.
The trick is to not pull the cursor through the menu, but in a curve around it, so the cursor does not touch any menu items until lower on the list where you wanted to go.
