Can't go "3 for 3" at the plate every time; it is a new widget in Panther and I thought it was worth mentioning. Oh well; life is short, there will be a new batch of hints tomorrow, and that'll give you something new to pick on...

hey, I and a few other people found it useful, so thanks for posting it.

Frankly I don't think this is particularly intuitive control (the one used to in the finder for ejecting disks at least has a symbol which hints at an action). I assumed it was an informational icon, and never have moused over it.

I'm relatively new to the world of Macs after making the switch from Windows. OK, so I admit I knew about this hint, but many others may not. Working on an IT support desk, it's obvious some people don't read the manual and don't know how read a help file, but sometimes, these things just aren't in an obvious place! Long story short, I think that these tips are well worth it and deserve to be shared, no matter how trivial they may seem to you, others may find them a great time saver! The site is after all MacOSX HINTS, not MacOSX know it all experts!

The server is up but the site is down and I don't know which direction you are trying to go
