Get Rich Quick? Inspired by last year's $10,000 Macintosh Web server security challenge (see TidBITS-317), Sweden's Joakim Jardenberg is conducting a Macintosh Web server "Crack a Mac" challenge. From 10-Feb-97 through 10-Apr-97, Joakim is offering a cash prize to anyone who can alter the contents of the home page on a standard Macintosh Web server set up for the contest running WebSTAR 2.0. The prize this time is 10,000 Swedish crowns (about $1,350 U.S.), but it's worth noting that no one claimed the prize from last year's challenge. Perhaps the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, whose Web pages were recently cracked, should think about hosting them on Macintosh servers. [GD]
Spin Through Toolbar View Options
Although many people never change their toolbars from the default settings, all standard toolbars on the Mac offer six states: icon only, text only, and icon and text, with all three coming in normal and small size. You can change them by choosing View > Customize Toolbar.
But there's a shortcut that makes it easier to check out each variant. Simply Command-click the toolbar lozenge at the upper right of a window, and the toolbar switches to the next view. Click it enough times, and you cycle back to the start.
