Cull Graphics Quickly with Preview

You're faced with a folder full of images, and you need to sort through them, trashing some number and keeping the rest. For a quick way to do that, select them all, and open them in Preview (in Leopard, at least). You'll get a single window with each graphic as an item in the drawer. Use the arrow keys to move from image to image, and when you see one you want to trash, press Command-Delete to move it from its source folder to the Finder's Trash. (Delete by itself just removes the picture from Preview's drawer.)

DoorStop X 1.0 Enhances Mac OS X's Firewall

DoorStop X 1.0 Enhances Mac OS X's Firewall -- Back in 1998, Open Door Networks shipped DoorStop, the first firewall for the Mac. The program was subsequently licensed to Symantec for Norton Personal Firewall, and now Open Door has released DoorStop X, a new version for Mac OS X 10.3 Panther and 10.4 Tiger. Although Mac OS X has had a built-in firewall since Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar, and the version in Tiger finally offers rudimentary logging of denied access attempts, DoorStop X provides far better logging (particularly in concert with Open Door's Who's There? Firewall Advisor utility) of both allowed and denied access attempts. DoorStop also features a more graphical interface that makes it easier to understand your configuration at a glance, and most important, the program enables you to open up a particular port to a specific IP address or range of IP addresses, thus eliminating the all-or-nothing approach of Mac OS X's built-in firewall. Through 15-Aug-05, DoorStop X costs $40, or $60 when bundled with Who's There. Educational discounts are available for multiple license packs. A fully functional trial version (2.2. MB download) works for 30 days; Who's There has a fully functional, 10-day trial version (also 2.2. MB). [ACE]
