OSX Shortcut Keys For Screenshot

OSX Hint:

COMMAND+SHIFT=3 ... Will grab entire screen to a pdf file.

COMMAND+CTRL+SHIFT+3 ... Will grab entire screen to clip board for cut&paste into email.

COMMAND+SHIFT+4 ... Will then turn your pointer to a camera lense icon, select the region you wish to have a screenshot of, then it will copy that to a pdf file.

COMMAND+CTRL+SHIFT+4 ... Will do the same thing, except put the screenshot to clip board for emailing.

New CD-R CD-RW Burner


I purchased a new CD-R/CD-RW burning for my pc yesterday, and installed it today. Got it for $44 at CompUSA. Here are the stats... 52x24x42x. I am a happy camper now. Doing backups will be much faster. Now to update a web page or two, and start working on a new graphic for K.D. for February.
