Minor enhancements added this weekend... Site News
I made a couple of small changes to the site this weekend ... the first change (very overdue!) is that the "quick search" box in the navigation bar now does a "find all words" search. Prior to today, it was doing a "find exact phrase" search, which is infinitely less useful here. As an example, a navigation bar search for "color dock" would have returned no matches; now it returns 14! No more loading the advanced search page just for a quick multi-word search -- thanks to the two or three of you who pointed out to me how annoying the old behavior was!

Second, the navigation bar now contains a Chat link that loads a page explaining how to join the macosxhints Internet Relay Chat (IRC) channel. If you have a problem that needs an immediate answer, macosxhints' chat is a great place to start -- think iChat without the fancy interface. And with the xhintschat application (check out the link above for more info on it), IRC is nearly as easy (not quite, though!) as iChat. If you haven't tried it yet, give it a chance and say hello to some of the other macosxhints' readers (if I'm there, I'm either 'robg' or 'griffman.')
