Disable Caps Lock

If you find yourself pressing the Caps Lock key accidentally as much as I do, note that you can disable it entirely in Mac OS X. Open the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane, click the Modifier Keys button, and in the dialog that appears, select No Action from the Caps Lock pop-up menu. You could remap it to another modifier instead, but that might make using differently configured Macs more difficult.

 
 

IPNetTuner 1.5 Adds Speed Tests

Send Article to a Friend

IPNetTuner 1.5 Adds Speed Tests -- Wonder how fast your Internet connection really is or worry that you're not getting the bandwidth you should? Sustainable Softworks' just-released IPNetTuner 1.5 adds speed tests to the network utility's Open Transport optimization capabilities (Mac OS 9-only). IPNetTuner now also includes configurations that automatically tune Open Transport for common connection types. Open Transport optimization is a black art, so the included configurations help get you started, and the real-time performance graphs provide the feedback you need to see if your changes are useful. IPNetTuner 1.5 costs $25, and updates from previous versions are free. It's a 544K download. [ACE]
