Oops, we biffed it back in "Macworld Expo NYC Superlatives" in TidBITS 438. We wrote that Casady & Greene's Conflict Catcher 8.0 will cost $79.95 when it ships in early September and will include a $30 rebate. That's true, but the rebate, good through 01-Jan-99, applies only for previous owners of Conflict Catcher - essentially providing a discount for those who upgrade. Our apologies for any confusion.
Copy Before Submitting Web Forms
Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.
