Mac OS X tip for the day

[Original Link] This describes how to modify the Internet Explorer resources so that the IE location bar uses Google by default for searching. You just type a location of ‘? woody allen’, for example, to search.
I did this several months ago and use it every day; so much so that I’d forgotten it wasn’t the default behaviour. If you use IE on OS X, try this. Small hassle. Big rewards.


[Original Link] Today I release my first ever Mac OS X utility! Wait – don’t get over-excited! It’s a simple bit of AppleScript which changes the SMTP server of all your Mail accounts at once; very handy if, like me, you have several accounts and move between networks frequently. Absolutely no use to anybody else.

Update:This really isn’t necessary on more recent versions of Mac OS X, so I’ve deleted it.
