Last Regular TidBITS Issue of 1998

Send Article to a Friend

Last Regular TidBITS Issue of 1998 -- We're taking the final two weeks of the year off to spend with family and friends over the holiday season, so this is the last regular TidBITS issue for 1998, although we plan to publish a special holiday gift issue in a day or two. TidBITS Talk will take a two-week vacation as well, starting 18-Dec-98 and returning in the first few days of 1999 to discuss Macworld Expo in San Francisco.

Additionally, we'd like to thank our sponsors for their financial support and our many volunteer translators for their selfless work in making TidBITS available in Chinese, Dutch, French, German, and Japanese. We also extend a hearty thanks to everyone who has sent in kind words of support over the past year. This year was a time of rebuilding for the Macintosh community, and we look forward to 1999 with continued optimism. [ACE]
