Signed TidBITS T-Shirt Charity Auction -- At Macworld Expo 2002 in San Francisco, I donated a signed TidBITS t-shirt to the World Without Borders folks to auction off for their charity Mac-A-Wish Foundation. It aims to provide Macintosh hardware and software to ill children to help them communicate with the outside world and continue their educations when they can't attend school. World Without Borders has now put the t-shirt up on eBay for auction, ending on 20-Mar-02, and all proceeds will go to their Mac-A-Wish Foundation (not yet an IRS-recognized non-profit). Of course, if you have old hardware or software you'd like to donate to the cause, contact World Without Borders to coordinate your gift. [ACE]
Avoid Naming Pear Note Files
If you create a lot of documents, coming up with a name for them can sometimes be a hassle. This is especially true now that search is becoming a more prevalent way to find documents. Pear Note provides a way to have the application automatically generate a filename so you can avoid this hassle. To use this:
- Open Saving under Pear Note's preferences.
- Select a default save location.
- Select a default save name template (Pear Note's help documents all the fields that can be automatically filled in).
- Check the box stating that Command-S saves without prompting.
- If you decide you want to name a particular note later, just use Save As... instead.
