Turn Off Filename Extension Warning
In Leopard, Apple fixed an annoying aspect of working with the Finder in Tiger. Previously, if you changed a file's extension, the Finder prompted for confirmation. But since no one has ever accidentally changed a filename extension, Apple thankfully added an option to turn that warning off in the Leopard Finder's preferences. Choose Finder > Preferences, and in the Advanced screen, deselect Show Warning Before Changing an Extension.
Advertise Your Product in DealBITS
If you want to expose tens of thousands of TidBITS-reading Macintosh users to your products while generating sales at the same time, look no further than a DealBITS drawing. Where most advertising aims at brand recognition (a worthy goal in its own right), the beauty of DealBITS is that you'll likely sell enough of your product to more than offset the cost of participation.
Here's how DealBITS works. You provide at least two copies of a prize of your choosing, to be awarded to randomly chosen winners. We'll pick the winners from the eligible entries at the end of the week after the drawing is announced and pass on their names and email addresses so you can send them their prizes. You must also offer a time-limited deal via a coupon code or special URL for drawing entrants. When we notify entrants of the winner(s), we'll also pass on the discount code/URL they can use to order. DealBITS costs $250.
To sign up for DealBITS, first contact us to make sure we can run your drawing (likely yes, unless it's too far off-topic for our readership) and to see if there are any scheduling constraints. When we give the OK, come back here and fill in the form below, which sends us the information in a regularized format. We'll return an email invoice, payable via check or PayPal once the drawing has started.
We need the following information from you:
