Add Hyperlinks to TextExpander Snippets

You can include a clickable link in a TextExpander snippet. Here's how:

  1. Create a new snippet.
  2. From the Content menu (just above the snippet body), choose Content: Formatted Text, Picture.
  3. Put a full URL in the snippet body, such as http://www.smilesoftware.com/
  4. Control-click the link text and choose Make Link from the pop-up menu.

After you've made the link, you can replace the visible URL with other text. Just put your cursor in the active link text and make changes as you would with any other text.

In TidBITS #217 Mark Anbinder asserts that, instead of advancing the PowerPC architecture, the MPC 603 brings the PowerPC to low cost and low power applications.

This is only half right. The 603 advances the architecture by implementing separate instruction and data caches. It also implements a separate load/store unit, so that memory operations can execute in parallel with integer, floating point, and branch instructions. The 603 may not be the fastest member of the family but I think it looks more like the future of PowerPC than the 601 does.
