2nd Annual Mac Networkers Retreat Approaching -- Macworld Expo in Boston may have shrunk, and ADHOC/MacHack may be no more, but other Macintosh events carry on. From 30-Oct-05 through 01-Nov-05, the second annual Mac Networkers Retreat promises to provide the kind of real-world information that Mac network and IT managers need. It's particularly good to see the organizers acknowledging that the conference needs to offer training that goes beyond what can be learned from online sources, with topics like advanced Mac OS X Tiger Server administration, AirPort network design and management, implementation of LDAP and Directory Services, services and security in Mac OS X Server, and a Mac Admin Beginners Bootcamp. The retreat, held at the Seascape Resort in Aptos, CA (near Monterey), will have over 30 hours of instruction, and it costs $700 before 30-Sep-05, $800 after. The only downside as I see it? Much as I enjoy trading denial-of-service attack stories and practicing wireless network traffic sniffing, spending Halloween with a bunch of cool network geeks could be really scary. [ACE]
New Documents in Snow Leopard's TextEdit
In the Snow Leopard version of TextEdit, you can now create a new document by Control-clicking TextEdit's Dock icon (when it's running), and choosing New Document from the pop-up menu. This isn't a major feature, of course, since you can also just press Command-N while in TextEdit, but consider Control-clicking other applications' Dock icons to see what functions they might make available.
