Set Password Activation Time in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, you can now set an amount of time after your Mac goes to sleep or engages the screen saver before it requires a password to log back on. In Leopard, the option was simply to require the password or not. Choose among several increments, between 5 seconds and 4 hours, from System Preferences > Security.

SpamCon Foundation Offers Anti-Spam Resources

SpamCon Foundation Offers Anti-Spam Resources -- Everyone hates spam, but some people go the extra mile to help stamp it out. That's especially true of Tom Geller, executive director of the recently founded SpamCon Foundation, a publicly supported California non-profit organization. A Macintosh veteran of ZiffNet/Mac and MacWEEK, Tom has long been focusing energy on reducing spam, first through the Suespammers Project and now through the SpamCon Foundation. Services available from the SpamCon Foundation include guides for individuals looking to reduce the amount of spam they receive, help for marketers who want to use email without spamming, a searchable database of over 7,000 media stories on spam, a library of hard statistics about spam to support arguments about its negative impact, and free receive-only email addresses in the suespammers.org domain. The SpamCon Foundation also publishes a weekly newsletter and runs mailing lists surrounding the spam issue. I'd encourage anyone interested in reducing to visit the SpamCon Foundation's Web site, and if you think they're doing good work, to consider supporting them with tax-deductible donations. [ACE]
