And Now, NetBITS! Watch your email this coming Friday for a sample issue of our neat new publication, NetBITS. Complete details will be forthcoming both in the first issue of NetBITS and the next issue of TidBITS (and the password protection will come off the Web site Thursday night; NetBITS uses a .net top-level domain). Suffice to say for now that TidBITS readers will receive only the first two issues of NetBITS automatically and after that you'll have to subscribe (for free, of course) to receive more. You can subscribe to the text version by sending email to <email@example.com> and to the HTML version (make sure your email program can interpret HTML mail!) by sending a message to <firstname.lastname@example.org>. If you're a member of the press and would like a sneak preview, drop me a note and I'll send some additional information. More soon! [ACE]
