Move the Dock Quickly

You may find it convenient to move the position of the Dock when working in certain programs or with certain files. Rather than choosing a different position from the Dock preferences pane or using a submenu in the Apple menu's Dock submenu, you can move your Dock to a different screen edge merely by Shift-dragging the separator that divides the application and document sections.

"Take Control of Sharing Files in Tiger" Now in Japanese -- Our industrious Japanese translators have returned with a full Japanese translation of Glenn Fleishman's "Take Control of Sharing Files in Tiger." The 122-page ebook makes file sharing easy, whether it's between a pair of Tiger-equipped Macs (via Ethernet, AirPort, or FireWire), among a mixed-platform office workgroup, or between far-flung computers on the Internet. Learn how to set up Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger to share files with Macs, Windows, and Unix machines using AppleShare, Samba, FTP, the Web, and WebDAV. Glenn also shows you how to avoid the risks of sharing files across the Internet, provides instructions for accessing shared files from common operating systems, and explains how to enhance Tiger's file sharing with SharePoints. This Japanese translation costs $15 so there's a share for the translators, and it comes with a copy of the English version so readers can learn of updates before they're translated.
