Copy Disk Image as Folder

When you open a .dmg file, a disk image is mounted. You are then generally supposed to copy the contents of that disk image to your hard drive (to your Desktop, your Applications folder, or wherever). But what if you want to copy the whole disk image, including all its contents, as a folder? Hold the Option key, and drag the "proxy icon" in the title bar of the disk image window to the destination in the Finder.

Eudora 4.3.1 Updater Available -- Qualcomm has finally released the free updater that upgrades existing copies of Eudora Pro 4.x to Eudora 4.3 in Paid mode, which offers all of Eudora's features without displaying ads. The updater is a 5.9 MB download, and remember that Eudora 4.3 requires a PowerPC-based Mac, so there's no point in downloading it if you're using a 68K-based Mac. See "InterviewBITS with Steve Dorner" in TidBITS-517 and "Eudora 4.3 Public Beta Adds Free Usage Modes" in TidBITS-509 for more details on the release.


Alan Forkosh reported on TidBITS Talk that when he ran the updater, it first asked for his name and then provided a new registration number, warning that he needed to save that information. On the next launch, Eudora still came up in Sponsored mode, and Alan had to choose Payment & Registration from the Help menu, then enter the name and new registration number to switch to Paid mode.
