Now Up-to-Date & Contact 4.1.1 Squashes Bugs -- Mac OS X users running Power On Software's Now Up-to-Date & Contact 4.1 should definitely upgrade to the just-released version 4.1.1. Fixed are bugs related to printing, the periodic full save on quit, HTML exporting from Public Event and Public Contact servers, dragging events from the calendar to the To-Do list, disabling QuickDay in the menubar, and more. The update is a free 15 MB download, and again, it's only necessary for those running Now Up-to-Date & Contact 4.1 in Mac OS X - the current version of the program for Mac OS 9 remains 4.0.3. [ACE]
Viewing Wi-Fi Details in Snow Leopard
In Snow Leopard, hold down the Option key before clicking the AirPort menu. Doing so reveals additional technical details including which standards, speeds, and frequencies you're using to connect, as well as what's in use by other networks. With the Option key held down and with a network already joined, the AirPort menu reveals seven pieces of information: the PHY Mode, the MAC (Media Access Control) address, the channel and band in use, the security method that's in use, the RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indication) measurement, the transmit rate, and the MCS Index. In Leopard, some, but not all, of these details are revealed by Option-clicking the AirPort menu.
