Take Control of Upgrading to Panther Now in Dutch -- Our untiring Dutch translation team has gone beyond translating TidBITS each week to bring Dutch-speaking Macintosh users a translation of Joe Kissell's "Take Control of Upgrading to Panther." As with our other translations, it's $7.50, with a third of the price going to the translators. Continuing our policy of supporting our early adopters, Dutch speakers who already purchased the English version of "Take Control of Upgrading to Panther" are entitled to a free copy of the Dutch translation. If your English copy of the ebook has a Check for Updates button on the first page, click it to access the download page for the translation. If your copy of the ebook is too old to have a Check for Updates button, you may be able to download a new copy from eSellerate if you still have your receipt, or you may still have the free coupon code we sent to purchasers before we implemented the Check for Updates mechanism. We'll be sending a direct download link to readers in the Netherlands and Belgium as well, but if all else fails, please use the form on our FAQ page to ask Tonya for help. [ACE]
Avoid Long Hierarchical Menus
If you right-click (or Control-click) on some item, such as a file in the Finder, and one of the sub-menus has many options (Open With is a frequent culprit), it may take several seconds to open, even on a fast machine, which is annoying if you did not actually want that sub-menu.
The trick is to not pull the cursor through the menu, but in a curve around it, so the cursor does not touch any menu items until lower on the list where you wanted to go.
