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.)

Bring Your Own Badge

Bring Your Own Badge -- This week, TidBITS celebrates its eighth anniversary, making it one of the oldest and largest edited publications on the Internet. We've marked previous anniversaries by writing about TidBITS history (see "TidBITS 7.0" in TidBITS-375), but this year we created TidBITS Web badges, which we hope loyal TidBITS readers will display on Web pages (or corporate memos, bumper stickers, forehead tattoos, etc.). If you've been reading TidBITS for years, check out the badges saying "TidBITS Reader Since 1904, 1990, 1991, 1992," and so on. Other badges sport slogans like, "The Best Bits are TidBITS" and "Powered By ASCII." Suggestions for new silly badges are welcome. Also, you'll find special badges for TidBITS authors and sponsors, and for linking to a software review in TidBITS. The TidBITS Badges Web page contains the badges plus sample HTML code. [TJE]
