Rendezvous with Now Up-to-Date & Contact 4.5.2 -- Many fans of Now Software's Now Up-to-Date & Contact stick with it because of its capability to host calendars and contact information on shared network servers. This feature gets a boost in version 4.5.2 with its support of Rendezvous (also known as Zero Configuration Networking) for more easily connecting devices on a network. The update also adds support for Apple's new Xserve G5, and includes stability enhancements. Now Up-to-Date & Contact 4.5.2 requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later, and is a 17.6 MB download. [JLC]
Copy Before Submitting Web Forms
Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.
