Mac OS X Zip Expanding Utility

Firefox (and possibly other applications) may ask you what you want to do with .zip archives that you download from the Internet. If you want to expand them with Mac OS X (rather than StuffIt Expander), you may be unsure of which application actually does the job. You're looking for Archive Utility (in Leopard and later) or BOMArchiveHelper (in Tiger). In either case, the application is stored in Hard Drive/System/Library/Core Services/. Don't move it from there, though, or you'll confuse matters.

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]
