    Go to Apple's website, then drag the url from the address bar in your browser down to the dock.

    Just open up the Apple homepage, and drag the URL from the address bar into your Dock – the spring icon will reappear. You can do the same with any URL you fancy keeping handy in there.

    Open Safari, Navigate to www.apple.com then drag the URL to your dock.

    EDIT: Too slow :D

    Now that you have 3 people telling you how to fix that problem... let's work on your second issue: starting threads with terrible titles. :rolleyes::)

    Although I agree with your point, in his defence he did get a response in 5 minutes.

    Again I agree. I guess the 3 of the people who responded are not gurus. :D

    i, too, wanted to b!tch about posters who love to create threads with 2 letter titles.

    i must admit, it got me curious what "ah!!!!!" meant.

    i wish we all would be more "civilized" when creating thread. for some of us here, mr is part of our lives and we would like to keep everything as sane as possible.

    offtopic: everytime i install/configure mac os x, i always delete that "spring" icon. please don't ask me why...

    You don't need to tease. New members may not realize that we have hundreds of threads to distinguish each day, and that they are most likely to get the help they need with an on-topic thread title.

    The moderators often add text to thread titles (as we did with this one) to help the original poster find help, and to make it easier for other members to know if the thread is one they might want to read or contribute to. The text is usually in parentheses to distinguish it from the poster's original thread title.
