Love your Mac! Love your Dashboard!

Lifehacker has a great link to a great articel on how to take control of your Dashboard (mac OSX).


"MacWorld has a terrific article up today that shows you how to control and manage your Dashboard widgets. It collects a bunch of great Dashboard usage suggestions. Topics include how to find missing widgets, how to add widgets to the Finder, and my favorite: how to just take a peek without going into Dashboard itself.

To do this, start by pressing and holding your Dashboard key—F12 or F13 or whatever—until Dashboard appears. Then, you can take your time and look around. Check out your calendar, the weather, or whatever other widgets you’ve got loaded on your standard dashboard. When you’re finished looking just release the key. Dashboard disappears.

Launch and Maintain Blog Projects
Launch and Maintain Blog Projects If you wish to engage your blog readers and to convert them in to becoming participants in your weblog, try to start a mini project or two.
Nice to see some decent content for a change. FYI, I log on today and see that we've got a new feature, the 'Flag blog' button, which is inconveniently located between the 'Get Your Own Blog' and 'Next Blog' buttons so that we would presumably be getting some flags on error alone (although if one happens to notice it, you can unflag a blog) But that's a trivial matter. What concerns me is this: When a person visiting a blog clicks the "Flag?" button in the Blogger Navbar, it means they believe the content of the blog may be potentially offensive or illegal. We track the number of times a blog has been flagged as objectionable and use this information to determine what action is needed. This feature allows the blogging community as a whole to identify content they deem objectionable. Ok, see the problem with this? What's "objectionable." I'm guessing there are a good deal of people that would likely deem my blog to be objectionable; and there lies the problem: what is objectionable and what is subjective.

Thanks for the heads up. I will keep it in mind.
