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.)

WebSTAR Server Suite 4.0 Adds Email, Performance, and More

WebSTAR Server Suite 4.0 Adds Email, Performance, and More -- StarNine Technologies has shipped WebSTAR Server Suite 4.0, the latest version of its widely used Internet server software, positioning it as an integrated, easy-to-use solution for common Internet services. WebSTAR 3.0 added several features to WebSTAR's traditional Web-serving toolkit (including a proxy server and a built-in FTP server). WebSTAR Server Suite 4.0 expands that range by rolling in feature-rich SMTP, POP, and IMAP mail servers (with, naturally, Web-based email access) and new tools based on Blue World's Lasso middleware technology for serving information from FileMaker or ODBC databases. WebSTAR Server Suite 4.0 also integrates SSL encryption and advanced security options directly into the main application and includes numerous under-the-hood performance enhancements that can double WebSTAR's serving capability and significantly reduce connection latency.
