pram and navagation services

zapping the p-ram is holding command-option-p-r on immediate boot so you hear the startup chimes more than once. its nvram which holds the date et al and can become corrupt. zapping once a month is recommended though i do it rarely unless i'm having a problem.

you can navagate classic finder (it is carboninzed too but i dont have OSX running yet) by using the keyboard entirely. just start typing till letters till you get the file you want. this only works for files in the immediate window or on the desktop if the finder is on top. its kind of like typing 'vi h' then hitting escape to get 'vi helloworld.c'.
