Shorten URLs in TextExpander

If your Twitter client doesn't automatically shorten URLs for you, you can use TextExpander to shrink those long links to tweetable lengths. First, add the Internet Productivity group by choosing File > Add Predefined Group > Internet Productivity Snippets. Then, to shorten a URL using a service like TinyURL, copy the destination URL to the clipboard, and type the abbreviation /tinyurl to insert the shortened URL at the insertion point.

Price and Availability: -- ClarisWorks lists for $299, and is available for under $200 from mail order companies. Education users should get an even cheaper price, around $120. (Note that some educational resellers may still offer MacWrite II, MacPaint 2.0, and Resolve, with a free upgrade to MacWrite Pro, at a special bundle price of $99: if you only need word processing, graphics, and a spreadsheet and you have a Mac with at least 4 MB of RAM, this is a better deal.) Sidegrades for $99 are available if you already own another integrated package. Contact Claris or a dealer for more information.
