What a show! Going to a Macworld Expo always takes a great deal of effort because I want to see everything and talk to lots of people, and I usually spend the entire day on the floor. I wanted to order a new set of legs by the end, but all the mail order places were backordered by then. :-)

I enjoyed the show, and I'll write more about it below. I want to mention how nice it was to meet so many of the people I've corresponded with electronically for so long. We had made up a bunch of cool red TidBITS buttons (the only button at the show with a penguin on it) and I tried to give them away to TidBITS readers, but I'm sure I missed many of you. We've still got some buttons and will give you a chance to get one via snail mail in the next few weeks. Stay tuned for details.
