Copy Disk Image as Folder

When you open a .dmg file, a disk image is mounted. You are then generally supposed to copy the contents of that disk image to your hard drive (to your Desktop, your Applications folder, or wherever). But what if you want to copy the whole disk image, including all its contents, as a folder? Hold the Option key, and drag the "proxy icon" in the title bar of the disk image window to the destination in the Finder.

"Chili Pepper" iChat Plug-in Released

Send Article to a Friend

"Chili Pepper" iChat Plug-in Released -- Shareware developer Susan Valencia has released a plug-in for iChat that emulates Eudora's popular MoodWatch feature to iChat users who have Eudora installed (whether or not it's the default email client). With ChiliChat 1.0 working inside iChat, you can gauge if your instant messages will potentially be offensive by noting the number of chili pepper icons that appear above the text input field as you type (you can see a screenshot at the second link below). The plug-in is a free 23K download and currently works only with iChat. If ChiliChat garners enough interest, Valencia says she'll consider making it available for other instant messaging software on the Mac. [JLC]
