I Think I Felt the Earth Move -- Users of the AppleScript, Frontier, Nisus, and QuicKeys archives at <gaea.kgs.ukans.edu> might be in for a shock: the long-standing scripting archive site will soon be gone. However, thanks to the efforts of Fred Terry <email@example.com> and the generosity of Jaeson Engle and Acme Technologies, gaea has a new home on a Mac at ScriptWeb. The new archive site is running now, and all files should be updated within a week. Thanks to all involved in keeping this valuable resource on the nets, and thanks to the Kansas Geological Survey for letting the archives remain on the original site for the last two and a half years.

Type an em-dash on an iPhone
Typography and punctuation geeks rejoice! It's easy to type an em-dash on the iPhone's or iPod touch's virtual keyboard. To do so, tap the .?123 key to switch to the numeric keypad. Then touch and hold on the Hyphen key to reveal a pop-up strip showing an em-dash. Slide to the em-dash and release your finger.
Note that this basic trick works with many other keys on the virtual keyboard.
