Dashboard when screen sharing!

A great tip submitted by Dominic P. Tremblay: Dashboard when screen sharing! I always use the F12 shortcut to launch Dashboard, because I think dragging the mouse to the Dock to click on the icon is so much longer. I finally found why the icon is useful though. When you are using Leopard's new screen sharing feature, pressing on F12 will launch dashboard on your own Mac even if you mouse is in the shared screen window. The only way that I found to open Dashboard on the remote Mac is to click on the icon in the Dock. Thanks for the tip Dominic!

Why does every title in this blog end with an exclamation point!?

@ Admin: I have always wondered that.

@ MacGeek:

Don't you know that there are only so many exclamation points that can be used in the world! (oops.) Pretty soon, we'll run out and have to start using ยก. :D
