On Tuesday, September 6th, 2011, Michael S. Hart passed away at the age of 64. Hart was considered by many the inventor of the ebook, and was the founder of Project Gutenberg, the well-known and highly regarded online library of free ebooks. It’s no exaggeration to say that Hart’s work was a driving inspiration to many pioneers of electronic publishing. We all owe him an enormous debt. follow link
Copy Before Submitting Web Forms
Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.
Farewell to Michael S. Hart, Founder of Project Gutenberg
