    10.1 and energy management : is it there ?

    I'm wondering if Apple has finally brought Mac OS X 10.1's energy management abilities on par with those of Mac OS 9. (As you may know, a Mac running Mac OS X 10.0.4 is not Energy Star compliant (see the Apple documentation that came with your new Mac).) I really like Mac OS X, but I...

    I noticed today that in OmniWeb, avatars in JPEG format are not displayed correctly. It seems that the vBulletin software sends out a file called "Avatar.php" for files with "*.jpg" extensions while GIF formatted files are sent out as "Avatar.php.gif". The lack of a valid image extension causes...

    Default "Application" folder on another disk ?

    In classic Mac OS, one could put apps anywhere one wanted. Personally, I always put them into an application folder, but not on the same disk as my System Folder. Same thing for my "Documents" folder. The idea being that it's easier to backup or defrag this way. It also used to be that it was...
