TidBITS is moving! Not far, about 25 miles south to near the shores of Lake Washington (well, OK, we can't see the lake from inside our house, but we can from the yard). Nothing will change for my email correspondents (well, OK, I might be a bit less responsive for the next few weeks). However, this note is directed at those of you who work for companies that like to swamp my snailbox with press releases and other goodies. It's not that I don't trust the United States Postal Service to forward my mail (well, OK, I intend to bribe the mail carrier with some apricot jam I made last summer), but it's always best if everyone updates their databases as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience! Our new address will be 1106 North 31st Street, Renton, WA 98055 USA.
New Documents in Snow Leopard's TextEdit
In the Snow Leopard version of TextEdit, you can now create a new document by Control-clicking TextEdit's Dock icon (when it's running), and choosing New Document from the pop-up menu. This isn't a major feature, of course, since you can also just press Command-N while in TextEdit, but consider Control-clicking other applications' Dock icons to see what functions they might make available.
