Free Macworld CreativePro Exhibit Passes -- With WWDC and MacHack under our belts, it's time to look ahead to the Macworld CreativePro Conference and Expo, 16-Jul-03 through 18-Jul-03 in New York City. If you're planning to attend and want free passes (a $35 value), our friends at Peachpit Press want to help: send an email containing your complete mailing address to <firstname.lastname@example.org> (you'll receive two per request, so give one to a friend). The passes are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, so get your request in today before Peachpit runs out! And hey, if you take advantage of this offer, stop by the Peachpit booth to thank them and pick up a book by one of the TidBITS crowd. [JLC]
Turn Off Filename Extension Warning
In Leopard, Apple fixed an annoying aspect of working with the Finder in Tiger. Previously, if you changed a file's extension, the Finder prompted for confirmation. But since no one has ever accidentally changed a filename extension, Apple thankfully added an option to turn that warning off in the Leopard Finder's preferences. Choose Finder > Preferences, and in the Advanced screen, deselect Show Warning Before Changing an Extension.
