Open URLs Quickly from BBEdit

If you're working on a bit of text (HTML or otherwise) in BBEdit, and you see a URL that you'd like to open, the fastest way is to Command-click it. Most BBEdit users probably already know this tip, but if you don't, it's a huge time-saver. (The same trick works in BBEdit's free little brother, TextWrangler.)

Tom Phoenix <rootbeer@aol.com> passed on a photocopy of the rebate form you can get from Apple if you purchased At Ease 1.0 (or a system bundled with it) between 02-Aug-93 and 01-Apr-94. You can get between $25 and $100 back depending on your situation, if you return this form. The only slight problem is that Apple forgot to include a blank for your street address. Oops. Call 800/892-4648 if you are interested in getting a form for the rebate, but make sure to add your street address manually if you send it in.
