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.

RAM Doubler 9.0.1 Fixes Office Incompatibility -- Connectix has released RAM Doubler 9.0.1, which corrects an incompatibility with Microsoft Office 2001 that we noted while reviewing Word 2001 in TidBITS-552. iBook owners who use the Preserve Memory Contents on Sleep option need to disable it with the update, however, or else the iBook will crash when put to sleep. Also, RAM Doubler's memory setting is automatically reset to Double after applying the update. The free patch applies to owners of RAM Doubler 9, but owners of full versions of RAM Doubler 8 will be pleased to note that the free patch also upgrades their software to 9.0.1. (See "Connectix Releases Free RAM Doubler 9 Update" in TidBITS-514.) The update is a 354K download. [JLC]
