Speaking of MacFixIt Extras, the MacFixIt Archives page now has listing of recent Extras items, making it more convenient for you to locate them. MacFixIt Extras are typically items that are either too long to be posted directly to the Late-Breakers page or contain information (such as about a file that can be downloaded) that I want to separately highlight. Special features, such as web site reviews, also fall into this category. MacFixIt Extras are shorter than MacFixIt Reports, which typically contain multiple items from across many days and are periodically updated.
