PowerCity Notes -- PowerCity, which started sponsoring TidBITS last week, was briefly overwhelmed by the unexpectedly enthusiastic response. Unfortunately, their response time increased significantly during the peak load times. The PowerCity folks are working to improve their response times, and ask that if you merely want more information about PowerCity that you put the words "Ordering Information" in the subject of your message. You should definitely read this information before making a quote request so you know what to expect. Also, when making a quote request, put "Price Quote" in the subject of your message, or, although it shouldn't normally be necessary for a fast response, put "Price Quote - URGENT" in the subject line if you need the response as fast as possible. Finally, please send requests for ordering information separately from quote requests. [ACE]
Open Links from Mail in the Background
Tired of switching back and forth between Mail and your Web browser every time you click a link in a TidBITS issue or other email message? Here's an easy workaround. Hold down the Command key when you click links in Mail to open them in your browser without switching away from Mail. That way you can keep reading in Mail and then read all the Web pages you've opened.
