Quick Tip - Mac OS X 10.3.9

And Safari 1.3.

Blake was whining about a change to Safari with the 10.3.9 update, which changes the popup menu option "Download Linked File As..." to "Download Linked File," meaning that he couldn't specify the save location when downloading a file. Normally I would prefer the new behavior, as I will simply set my download folder to wherever I want to save my stuff, and don't need to change locations for each download, but I understand that there are times when the old option is what one wants. Well, I solved his problem in about eight seconds by simply holding the option key. If someone can find a preference file that can be changed to reverse the default, let me know and I'll pass the info. along.

Oh, and he also thought that the screen blinking alert was a new feature of 10.3.9, and he likes it. I'm pretty sure it's been a part of Universal Access since 10.0; 10.2 at the latest.
