Tutorial Description

This week it's a mixture of a few hacks and mods, a great free Safari plugin in and a ""behind the scenes"" glimpse of how we handle email here at ScreenCastsOnline.

In detail the show covers:

Copying and Pasting Email Addresses: Snow Leopard has changed the default behaviour so I point to a terminal command that set things back the way they should be!

Modifying Grid View in iTunes 9: Lots of complaints about the white background on the Grid view in the latest version of iTunes. How to reset it to a darker colour. Update - Would you believe that Apple brought out 9.0.2 the night before this show was released and that they fixed the problem with a preference option! Luckily, I had chance to make the change to the show!

Hidden Keyboard Shortcuts: Some pretty neat keyboard shortcuts to allow you to control your audio plus access some system preference panes directly?ClickTo Flash: At last, a way to tame the beast that is Flash! A free Safari plugin that allows you to control what Flash content is displayed as you browse the interwebs. Cut down the distractions, stop your CPU from revving up and keep the heat down on your laptop.

This great plugin also allows you control over YouTube, letting you default to H.264 formatted content and even download YouTube videos to your Mac in H.264 format for direct use in iTunes.

ClickToFlash ?Email Tools and Processes: This section covers how I've adapted my email workflow to allow for the sharing of the ScreenCastsOnline mailbox with Mrs Don, and demonstrates how I pass emails on for further processing using a combination of automated and manual rules processing.

I also include a rather smart utility from eCamm which allows you to have multiple badges on your email dock icon to keep track of the contents of multiple mailboxes - Dockstar. control what Flash content is displayed as you browse the inter webs, cut down the distractions stop your CPU from revving up and keep the heat down on your laptop.
