Shorten URLs in TextExpander

If your Twitter client doesn't automatically shorten URLs for you, you can use TextExpander to shrink those long links to tweetable lengths. First, add the Internet Productivity group by choosing File > Add Predefined Group > Internet Productivity Snippets. Then, to shorten a URL using a service like TinyURL, copy the destination URL to the clipboard, and type the abbreviation /tinyurl to insert the shortened URL at the insertion point.

Keep It Up 2.0.1 Adds Remote Management

Send Article to a Friend

Keep It Up 2.0.1 Adds Remote Management -- Karl Pottie has released Keep It Up 2.0.1, a major upgrade to his $22 shareware server application monitoring tool. Along with a few tweaks from the previous 1.4.1 version, Keep It Up 2.0.1 adds the capability to manage your Mac server remotely via a Web browser. Through its embedded Web server (which runs on a user-specified port and is password-protected), Keep It Up 2.0.1 can provide general information about your server (including uptime, system load, free memory, and free disk space), restart or shut down the machine, quit running applications, and launch user-specified applications. Although Keep It Up 2.0.1 won't replace a remote control tool like Timbuktu Pro, the new features are extremely welcome. Keep It Up 2.0.1 is a 235K download. [ACE]
