My friend showed me this, so I can't take credit for discovering it on my own. But I am currently trying to invent/concoct alcohol infused water (among many other things), which will take some time, since I am merely at a nacent stage. But, once perfected for the palate, I will reveal my discovery to this forum first and foremost...Alas I digress, fare Maiden, thy bid thee the following:

I find the dictionary widget to be quite a resource, especially if one wants to know what "****wad" or "rtfm" mean. Look 'em up.. :p

What say yee??

Want another trick?

Put the mouse cursor over a word (take your post for on this page instance), press Ctrl, command + d and it'll show you the definition without opening the whole dictionary app.

That is awesome. Thanks so much. I'll be using that trick frequently.

NEAT! I'll be trying that when I get home.

Is that the widget that comes with tiger or the one available on apple.com?
