How to Train your Mountain Lion.

So, I took the plunge on and installed Mountain Lion on my Macbook Air. . .

Right now, everything seems to be running pretty smooth (Instead of doing a fresh install, I just upgraded my Crufty Lion install). . . and while I wait for my copy of David Pogue's New Missing Manual to show up at my door, I'm just gonna bang on it until it breaks.

Here's some neat tricks that I've found to jazz up your MLion Experience:

Open Notification Center with a Keyboard Shortcut in OS X Mountain Lion (from OSXDaily)

I've been seeing this ping around the Blogowebz for the past day or so. . . it's kinda a no brainer, but still pretty neat. Also, a 2 finger swipe left from OFF the track pad will activate notification center, as well.
