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.
