Yeah, the PIX is a VPN endpoint for work. It's also doing PPPoE termination from SBC (PIX 7.22 supports it). It's pretty slick!

I've been on battery and wireless for about 2 hours now, closed the top a few times, and let it sit idle. All things that would cause drops, kernel panic, and other odd things.

Safari Question - Sidebar and bookmarks

Just a quick question about Safari...

Is there a way to have your bookmarks in the sidebar - similar to Firefox's option of View -> Sidebar -> Bookmarks?

Thanks in advance!
