Poll Results: Sport Utility Drives? In last week's poll, we asked how many of you have a utility hard drive for Macintosh maintenance and configuration tasks. Of the over 500 people who weighed in, nearly 75 percent said they did have such a hard drive. That's interesting, but not surprising, since the type of person who solves problems is more likely to need a utility drive, and the type of person who reads TidBITS is likely to be a problem solver.

Fun Way to Send Attachments in Mail
If you're working in a file that you want to attach to a message in Apple Mail, you can transfer the file to Mail easily: From the title bar of the file's window, drag the little proxy icon to Mail's icon on the Dock. Your Mac will make Mail the active application and open a new outgoing message, with the file attached.
(If your icon won't drag, the file probably isn't saved.)
