Copy Disk Image as Folder

When you open a .dmg file, a disk image is mounted. You are then generally supposed to copy the contents of that disk image to your hard drive (to your Desktop, your Applications folder, or wherever). But what if you want to copy the whole disk image, including all its contents, as a folder? Hold the Option key, and drag the "proxy icon" in the title bar of the disk image window to the destination in the Finder.

Argh! Forgot the easyDNS Link!

Argh! Forgot the easyDNS Link! Well now, don't we feel stupid. Somehow our article on easyDNS ("Make DNS Easy with easyDNS" in TidBITS-619) managed to go through writing, technical editing, staff review, and three copy editing passes without anyone noticing that it didn't include a link to easyDNS's Web site. The URL is easy to guess - <http://www.easydns.com/> - but that's still no excuse. We've started the pots of water boiling in preparation for wet noodle lashing for the entire staff. Apologies all around. [ACE]
