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."

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.
