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.

In an effort to maintain sanity while continuing to keep the quality and timeliness of TidBITS high, we recently brought on a new Managing Editor, Jeff Carlson <jeffc@tidbits.com>. Jeff was most recently managing editor at Open House, a book publisher that produced numerous books for Peachpit Press, and he writes a monthly column for the online publication adobe.mag. Jeff's projects range beyond the technical as well, with eSCENE 1996, a collection of some of the best online fiction. Jeff will be working with people who submit articles to TidBITS, and he'll also help to put each issue together. We're extremely pleased to have him on staff.

Geoff Duncan (yes, we're well aware of the confusion of having two people whose names sound the same working on TidBITS) is moving over to become our Technical Editor, where he'll continue to maintain our mailing list database, automate our repetitive publishing tasks, and write the in-depth articles you've become accustomed to seeing from him.
