Open URLs Quickly from BBEdit

If you're working on a bit of text (HTML or otherwise) in BBEdit, and you see a URL that you'd like to open, the fastest way is to Command-click it. Most BBEdit users probably already know this tip, but if you don't, it's a huge time-saver. (The same trick works in BBEdit's free little brother, TextWrangler.)

Blind Luck and the RSA Data Security Challenge

Send Article to a Friend

TidBITS reader Cerebus the Aadvark <kreme@kreme.com> sent us email commenting on the RSA Data Security Challenge coverage in TidBITS 402. We noted that Peter Stuer's Intel-based PC from the STARlab Bovine Team solved the RSA 56-bit challenge. Cerebus wrote, "the majority of the computers in STARLab were Macs, and Peter lamented the fact that the solution hadn't been found on one of the Macs. In fact, the Apple Evangelistas team, despite spotting everyone a hundred-day lead, processed far more keys than any other team. Also, you should have pointed out that which machine 'broke' the key was a matter of plain blind luck. We're going to kick major butt on the 64-bit challenge! "
