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.)

You probably already noticed our redesign in this issue. Like most publications, we spent months in consultation with graphic designers and information architects in an attempt to create the best possible look for TidBITS. Right, sure, in our spare time. Actually, only the top and bottom of the issue have changed. We felt that the top of the issue was top-heavy, so we moved all the administrative details and the multitude of electronic addresses to the bottom where you can find them if you need them.

For those interested in APS price lists, note that I will mark new ones at the top of the issue, so if it doesn't change, assume that the price list is exactly the same as the week before.
