Change the order of third-party contextual menu items
Authored by: subatomicsatan on Apr 14, '03 03:16:57PM

i would avoid the use of spaces at the beginnings of filenames--
remember os x is unix and also remember the os update that
wiped hard drives that had files with names beginning with
spaces.

i'd simply add an 'a' to the beginning of the filename.

I've been using spaces at the beginning of files/folders' names
without problem.

me too, i have several subfolders in both Applications & Utilities
whose names start with space, the system works fine.. Unix can
handle the spaces as long as the applications and shell scripts
are written correctly
