Enter Dashboard, Expose, or Spaces Temporarily

Hold down F9, F10, F11, or F12 (or whatever you've set for the Expose and Spaces keyboard shortcuts) for a few seconds, and then release the key to enter and leave the appropriate mode without having to press the key again. This is particularly useful for Dashboard, in which you can check the contents of a widget and then return to your work with only a single key press.

IPNetSentry 1.3 Goes Beyond Personal Use -- Sustainable Softworks has released IPNetSentry 1.3, the latest version of their personal firewall and intrusion detection software (see "Macworld SF 2001 Trend: Personal Firewalls" in TidBITS-564 for more information on personal firewalls). New in version 1.3 are enhancements that improve performance in high-traffic environments, such as increased efficiency for the payload inspection feature that stops Code Red and Nimda worm traffic, more aged filters (2000, up from 250) that track intrusion attempts and block future similar attacks, an option to close intruding TCP connections, and the capability to avoid all disk access functions for use in high-performance network environments. The upgrade is free to registered users. [ACE]
