MacHax Best Hack Contest CD 2002 Now Available -- Want to see some cool hacks? The 2002 MacHax Best Hack Contest CD is now available directly from the MacHax Group for $20 plus shipping and handling. Check out our contest coverage in TidBITS-636 for descriptions of some of the most interesting entries. Keep in mind that these programs are written very quickly, so they're seldom polished and will very likely crash, but they're still often extremely amusing. Plus, many come with full source code that will interest developers who were unable to attend this year's MacHack conference. [ACE]
Turn Off Filename Extension Warning
In Leopard, Apple fixed an annoying aspect of working with the Finder in Tiger. Previously, if you changed a file's extension, the Finder prompted for confirmation. But since no one has ever accidentally changed a filename extension, Apple thankfully added an option to turn that warning off in the Leopard Finder's preferences. Choose Finder > Preferences, and in the Advanced screen, deselect Show Warning Before Changing an Extension.
