TidBITS 3.0

Send Article to a Friend

We don't know how many of you have been with us since TidBITS#001, but those who have might realize that this issue marks the beginning of the fourth year of TidBITS. We would like to thank you all for making TidBITS a success. Over 50,000 people in 40 countries read TidBITS each week, and it's all happened by word of net. The best way you can help us keep TidBITS growing is to tell a friend or two about TidBITS. It's free, it's easy, and you can get more information by sending email to: <info@tidbits.com>. Thanks again for an enjoyable three years, and here's hoping we can reach TidBITS#1000 and mess up my three-digit numbering scheme.
