Untrash the Trash

Feeling trasher's remorse? On Snow Leopard, you can open the Trash (click the Trash icon in the Dock) and "untrash" individual items there. Select one or more trashed items (files and folders) and choose File > Put Back. This returns the items to where they were when you originally put them in the trash. The keyboard shortcut is Command-Delete - the same as the shortcut for trashing an item in the first place, since in deleting something from the trash you are untrashing it.

Network Outage!

Send Article to a Friend

Network Outage! TidBITS Technical Editor Geoff Duncan has discovered a reliable method to block all spam: have your network service provider suddenly go dark. TidBITS services hosted at digital.forest are accessible, but everything at db.tidbits.com (including our article database, TidBITS Talk archive, and polls) will be offline until DNS updates propagate (hopefully by the time you read this). Even then, performance to db.tidbits.com services will be less than ideal, since my 56 Kbps frame relay Internet connection isn't the speediest and is already heavily used to distribute TidBITS Talk and most of our translations of TidBITS. We're working hard to avoid downtime, minimize performance degradation, and restore Geoff's connectivity, so please try to limit mail to essential issues. [ACE]
