The Recent Items submenu in the Apple menu is handy, but what if you want to work with a file in there in the Finder, rather than open it?

USB Overdrive X 10.2.1 Crosses the Finish Line -- Alessandro Levi Montalcini has released USB Overdrive X 10.2.1, a universal USB driver that supports all manner of USB devices, such as mice, trackballs, joysticks, and gamepads (see "Top Mac OS X Utilities: Restoring Third Party Capabilities" in TidBITS-625). Using USB Overdrive, you can configure the controls of multiple devices to perform complex actions or launch applications, in addition to basic actions like clicking. For some people, USB Overdrive X is essential for using devices whose manufacturers haven't created Mac OS X drivers. USB Overdrive X 10.2.1 costs $20 shareware, and is a 476K download. [JLC]
