Adam Keynoting O'Reilly Mac OS X Conference -- This appearance is a bit further out at the end of October, but since you'll need time for travel and hotel plans, I thought I'd also mention that I'm giving a keynote address titled "Panther Report Card" at the second O'Reilly Mac OS X Conference (see "Mac OS X Report Card: October 2002" in TidBITS-650 for last year's grades). The conference runs from 27-Oct-03 through 30-Oct-03 in Santa Clara, CA. My keynote takes place on Wednesday, October 29th at 8:45 AM, with Andy Ihnatko on next at 9:30 AM to give a tour of 10 years of Macintosh hardware, software, and the things PR people do to promote said products. TidBITS Contributing Editor Matt Neuburg will be presenting "AppleScript Everywhere" at 10:45 AM on Thursday, October 30th. Many of the other sessions look extremely interesting as well, such as Gordon Meyer's "Living the Digital Hub: Your House and Mac OS X," Matthew Barger's "Give your iBook a REST," and Cliff Skolnick's "Advanced Mac OS X Wireless Tips and Tricks."

Extend Mac OS X's Screenshots
Mac OS X has a variety of built in screenshot methods. Here's a look at a few that offer more versatility than the basic full-screen capture (Command-Shift-3):
• Press Command-Shift-4 and you'll get a crosshair cursor with which you can drag to select and capture a certain area of the screen.
• Press Command-Shift-4-Space to select the entire window that the cursor is over, clicking on the window will then capture it. The resulting screenshot will even get a nice drop shadow.
• Hold down the Space bar after dragging out a selection window to move your selection rectangle around on the screen.
• Hold down Shift after dragging out a selection to constrain the selection in either horizontal or vertical orientation, depending on the direction of your drag.
• Hold down Option after dragging out a selection to expand the selection window around a center point.
