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.)

Our "iMac Connection Guide" (see TidBITS 444) will undoubtedly require updates, and the first comes from Farallon, who introduced the EtherMac iPrint Adapter SL. This model of the iPrint specifically connects serial-based StyleWriter printers without LocalTalk support to the iMac's 10Base-T Ethernet port. Like Farallon's solution for LocalTalk printers, the now-shipping EtherMac iPrint Adapter LT, the SL version of the iPrint will cost $99, and Farallon expects to ship it in September of 1998.
