Preston Gregg of Apple writes to tell us that the new Apple Web server we mentioned last week in TidBITS-243 isn't official yet, and as such may go up and down a bit over the next week or so. They're busy moving the server to its own T-1 line, which will make for plenty of throughput. Also, it turns out that the Bug Reporting area is only for bugs or feedback with the Web server, NOT for general bugs with the Mac or any Mac software. Sigh. [ACE]
Add Hyperlinks to TextExpander Snippets
You can include a clickable link in a TextExpander snippet. Here's how:
- Create a new snippet.
- From the Content menu (just above the snippet body), choose Content: Formatted Text, Picture.
- Put a full URL in the snippet body, such as http://www.smilesoftware.com/
- Control-click the link text and choose Make Link from the pop-up menu.
After you've made the link, you can replace the visible URL with other text. Just put your cursor in the active link text and make changes as you would with any other text.
