Bit of Numerology -- We hit these triple identical digit issues of TidBITS every couple of years, but this is one of the most notable, since 666 is the so-called "number of the beast" from the Bible's Book of Revelation (Chapter 13, verse 18). But the number has additional meaning in the Macintosh world, where $666.66 was the initial price of the Apple I and where the now-relevant Unix command chmod 666 unlocks certain problematic files. It turns out the number has many other mathematical properties, as you can read at Mike Keith's page on the topic. I particularly like the last one. [ACE]

It will even be automatically mounted if needed when the folder is browsed in Silver Screen. To make the alias, mount the server or other disk in the Finder, locate the folder containing the movies and Command-Option-drag the folder's icon into your Movies directory.
