Avoid Simple Typos

If, like me, you find yourself typing 2911 in place of 2011 entirely too often, you can have Mac OS X (either Lion or Snow Leopard) fix such typos for you automatically. Just open the Language & Text pane of System Preferences, click the Text button at the top, and then add a text substitution by clicking the + button underneath the list. It won't work everywhere (for that you'll want a utility like Smile's TextExpander), but it should work in applications like Pages and TextEdit, and in Save dialog boxes.

4D Updates WebSTAR 4.5 for Mac OS 9

Send Article to a Friend

4D Updates WebSTAR 4.5 for Mac OS 9 -- Kudos to 4D for releasing WebSTAR Server Suite 4.5 for Mac OS 9 users today. Despite focusing attention on the Mac OS X-compatible WebSTAR V (which still lacks the email server component of WebSTAR 4.5), 4D took the time to decarbonize the Web server in WebSTAR 4.5 to improve performance and eliminate memory leaks. Also new are an enhanced File Upload plug-in that supports long file names and a new version of the WebSTAR Admin application. The update is free to all WebSTAR 4.x users and is available as a 49 MB download. [ACE]
