Expand Finder Columns Quickly

Column view in the Finder is great for navigating through your disk's hierarchy, but the columns often aren't wide enough to show the full names of all the files. To expand a column to a width that will show all file names in their entirety, double-click the handle that you would normally drag to expand or shrink the column. To expand all the visible columns to that width, Option-double-click the handle.

FileMaker 5 Internet Security Holes

FileMaker 5 Internet Security Holes -- Blue World Communications has published a FileMaker 5 security alert outlining serious Internet security issues with FileMaker Pro 5 and FileMaker Pro 5 Unlimited's XML publishing and email capabilities. Two exploits enable an interloper to acquire the entire contents of any Web-published database via email or as XML regardless of Web security settings; another enables anyone on the Internet to use FileMaker 5's email capabilities to send arbitrary email messages (a problem sure to delight spammers worldwide). These revelations come a week after FileMaker Inc. published documentation of FileMaker Pro 5's Web publishing capabilities in FileMaker Developer 5, although portions of FileMaker's XML capabilities have been documented on FileMaker's Web site for five weeks. As of this writing, FileMaker has not acknowledged any problems, and the only workarounds currently appear to be disabling FileMaker 5's Web Companion, reverting to FileMaker Pro 4.x (which does not have these security issues, but cannot open FileMaker 5 databases), or using a middleware product like Blue World's Lasso as a gateway for incoming requests.
