Copy Disk Image as Folder

When you open a .dmg file, a disk image is mounted. You are then generally supposed to copy the contents of that disk image to your hard drive (to your Desktop, your Applications folder, or wherever). But what if you want to copy the whole disk image, including all its contents, as a folder? Hold the Option key, and drag the "proxy icon" in the title bar of the disk image window to the destination in the Finder.

"Take Control of Customizing Microsoft Office" Updated to Version 1.0.1 -- Version 1.0.1 of Kirk McElhearn's "Take Control of Customizing Microsoft Office" is now available. This new version clarifies and corrects a few details from the previous version, and now offers better advice for modifying toolbars, customizing Word's Normal template, and disabling the keyboard shortcuts that can accidentally trigger Word 5 Menus. Those who own version 1.0 of the ebook can download the update for free by clicking the Check for Updates button on the ebook's cover. And if you've been waiting for that first bug-fix release, now's your chance to pick up a copy. Remember, we and Kirk are donating 10 percent of all proceeds from September sales to the American Red Cross Hurricane 2005 Relief Fund (we've sent $500 so far, rather than wait for the end of the month), so sales this month are particularly appreciated!
