    ...thank God I can only see 10 of them!

    Man do I feel popular tho... :eek::D

    So, I'm assuming this is another little bug... no big deal, doesnt have any affect on my mail.app or my iPhone, just made me laugh.

    You can take a screenshot of your whole screen by holding down (command+shift+3)

    If you only want to take a pic of a window, icon, etc. hold down (command+shift+4+space bar)

    and if you want to snap a selection hold down (command+shift+4)

    EDIT: xUKHCx, Damn your quick!!

    That's too hard for me to remember so I changed it to F13 and CMD+F13.

    2 seeds ago, Mail.app had some funny bugs where it would re-download your entire inbox. I currently have 20k messages, so you can imagine how long that takes and how much bandwidth it uses if you aren't paying attention :D

    That's about 70 less that the maximum number storable in an unsigned 32 bit integer. Seems there's a subtraction rather than addition, or similar, going on there somewhere.

    When I was transferring some files over the network the 'number of files remaining' started at 0 and counted down to about -4,200. Weird.

    Roll on 10.5.1.
