Hey guys,

After some ms vista frustrations I bought myself a mac,
I'm very very happy about it but I do have 1 serious issue that somehow must be fixed.

I'm using CVS and my repository is beeing trashed by all those useless and anoying ._filename.ext files created by preview.
Is there any method to get this problem solved?

I would prefer a way of disabling preview for a directory (and all files under it offc.) or by file extension. If those options aren't there,.. would it help to just trow away this useless feature (like delete it from the applications folder)?

Your help would be appreciated!!

Tnx for reading
