Prevent Disk Copy troubles with encrypted images Apps
This is a simple hint, but the problem which inspired it stumped me for quite a while.

For the longest time, I found that I could not create encrypted disk images with Disk Copy. I could not find anyone who knew why, and nothing I tried fixed the problem.

After much troubleshooting, it turns out that, for some stupid reason, Disk Copy just didn't work for encrypted images if it wasn't in the Utilities folder. I had moved all my apps into the Applications folder so that I could get at them with command-option-A. Once I put Disk Copy back in the Utilities folder, it worked fine with encrypted images. I hope this helps a few lost souls...

[Editor's note: I haven't done any work with encrypted images, so I can't vouch for this one ... anyone else run into something similar?]

there seems to be a lot of problems when people move applications, especially utilities.
I use folders with aliases in them, which I put in the right section of the dock - these folders can be anywhere.
Eg. I right-click on my "games" dock icon and click on one of the aliases in the list to play Warcraft.
