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.

Partying at Macworld Expo SF 2005 -- Although we're not seeing the types of extravagant Macworld Expo parties that existed several years ago, this year's show offers several opportunities for Mac fans to gather and have fun. Adam and I have a full slate of appearances this year (see "Macworld Expo SF 2005 Events" in TidBITS-760 to see when and where we'll be), but I wanted to mention a couple of additional events.

<http://db.tidbits.com/article/07933>

On Tuesday, 11-Jan-05, everyone is invited to the Party for the People, starting at 8:00 PM in the Piazza Lounge of the Parc 55 Hotel. Also worthy of note is the 19th annual Netters Dinner on Thursday, 13-Jan-05; registration is now open at $18 per person for the hot and spicy meal at Hunan (registration wasn't active when we published the original announcement in December). As usual, consult the Hess Memorial Macworld Expo SF 2005 Events List for updated information on these and other happenings. Hope to see you there! [JLC]
