Just throwing another note on the pile that this site has been worth the donations! The ads don't bother me at all. Frankly, this site makes Apple's Knowledge Library seem so pathetic and incomplete in comparison. It amazes me what my Mac can do with the help of all you power-users out there!

Yes, by all means, expand the site!

A funny thought: I wonder just how big a MacOSX Hints book would be today? I look at my 2-year-old book, and I consider how much has been added to the site since then...whoa. That's a lot of dead trees!

Having just sent it off to press, I can now tell you that the new book has something around 680 hints, versus 525? or so in the first one.

However, we also removed a number of hints that no longer work in Panther (hints on "faking" Finder labels, for instance, are no longer required). So in the end, the book didn't get hugely thicker -- I think it clocks in around 535 total pages, maybe 75ish longer than the first edition.

Hey James that's my quote! ("I love deadlines...")

:)

Oh well, I guess you agree it's a great quote...
