eMerge Update Speeds Direct Email Processing -- Galleon Software has released eMerge 1.6.2, a small-numbered revision that nonetheless greatly improves the direct-email program's functionality (see "Legitimate Direct Email eMerges" in TidBITS-465). Primarily, importing email address lists is now three times faster, and exporting the information is now 11 times faster. There is also greater control over duplicate email addresses and filtering. Another nice improvement is the elimination of a few minor (but frustrating) text-editing bugs in eMerge's main message window. eMerge 1.6.2 is a free update for registered users, and is a 1.3 MB download. New users can download a 2.2 MB demo version; registration is $99. [JLC]
Opening a Folder from the Dock
Sick of the dock on Mac OS X Leopard not being able to open folders with a simple click, like sanity demands and like it used to be in Tiger? You can, of course click it, and then click again on Open in Finder, but that's twice as many clicks as it used to be. (And while you're at it, Control-click the folder, and choose both Display as Folder and View Content as List from the contextual menu. Once you have the content displaying as a list, there's an Open command right there, but that requires Control-clicking and choosing a menu item.) The closest you can get to opening a docked folder with a single click is Command-click, which opens its enclosing folder. However, if you instead put a file from the docked folder in the Dock, and Command-click that file, you'll see the folder you want. Of course, if you forget to press Command when clicking, you'll open the file, which may be even more annoying.
