    Why not set your screen saver to the RSS feed of our very own Secrets site?

    Here's how:

    1. Open "System Preferences".
    2. Click on the "Desktop and Screen Saver" icon.
    3. Make sure you're on the "Screen Saver" tab.
    4. At the top of the list, under the "Apple" heading (click the disclosure triangle if you need to), choose "RSS Visualizer".
    5. Click the "Options" button.
    6. Copy and Paste the following URL into the text field after the "Feed URL:" label:
    7. Set the time to display each article to whatever you'd like.
    8. Click "Done".
    9. You can now either test your new screen saver or just close the "System Preferences".

    The next time your screen save kicks in on your Mac, you'll get a nice display of the latest 5 posts from WDisney Secrets! :thumbsup:

    Tom :)macwave:... enjoy!)

    Have you seen Mac 101 on the Apple site? :unsure:
    It can help clear up a lot of questions for you.

    Or... if you came from a Windoze background, there's the Switch 101 section.

    Both of these resources can go a long way to helping alleviate confusion. :thumbsup:
