MkLinux DR2 -- Last week, Apple released DR2 of MkLinux, a version of the Linux operating system for Power Macintosh they're describing as a "beta quality" release. MkLinux DR2 is a significant improvement on DR1, offering much better performance, better serial, SCSI, and networking support (including AppleTalk), and many bug fixes, although support for PCI Power Macs has yet to arrive. MkLinux DR2 is available via FTP and CD-ROM, but due to its huge size, I recommend the $20 CD-ROM from Prime Time Freeware. [GD]
Create Rules Based on Entourage Messages
When creating rules in Entourage 2008, you can save some time by selecting a message like those you want the rule to work on before defining the rule. That way, when you add criteria to your rule, Entourage fills in the data based on the data in the selected message. So if you wanted to filter messages containing TidBITS, you could select an issue and add a new "From Contains" criterion to a rule. Entourage will automatically fill in the email@example.com address in the criterion.
