Free Macworld Expo Passes -- TidBITS readers interested in attending the upcoming Macworld Expo in San Francisco from 07-Jan-03 through 10-Jan-03 can get free exhibits-only passes (normally $15 to $35) from our friends at Peachpit Press. To request passes (you'll receive two per request, so bring a friend), send an email message to <email@example.com> with your name and postal address. The passes are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, and Peachpit must receive all requests by 20-Dec-02. And hey, if you take advantage of this offer, stop by the Peachpit booth to thank them, check out their books, and chat with authors like Adam Engst, Jeff Carlson, and Glenn Fleishman. [ACE]
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.
