Edit Last Expanded Snippet in TextExpander

Sometimes you expand a snippet and realize you need to make some changes. Instead of opening TextExpander and tracking down the snippet, use the Edit Last Expanded Snippet hotkey. Once you press your hotkey combination, a window opens to let you edit and save your the last snippet you expanded.

Take the time to set your Edit Last Expanded Snippet hotkey in TextExpander's preferences, and you'll save time in the long run!

Cable Table Label

Cable Table Label -- Alert reader Phil Reese <preese@skat.usc.edu> wins the copy editing award for the week, noticing a serious typographical error in our chart listing the "standard" configuration for a Macintosh hardware handshaking cable. Somehow we switched the Macintosh pin numbers for handshaking in and out. Our apologies. The correct table is:

     Mac function     RS-232 function   Mac pin    DB-25 pin
     ------------     ---------------   -------    ---------
     RxD (receive)    Receive Data      5          3
     TxD (transmit)   Transmit Data     3          2
     Ground           Ground            4 & 8      7
     HSKi             CTS               2          5
     HSKo             RTS & DTR         1          4 & 20
     GPi              CD                7          8
