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.)

Y2K Updates for FileMaker Pro 4.0 and 4.1

Send Article to a Friend

Y2K Updates for FileMaker Pro 4.0 and 4.1 -- After withdrawing its 4.1v2 updaters a few weeks ago, FileMaker Inc. has released free updaters for both FileMaker Pro 4.0 and 4.1 to address Y2K-related inconsistencies in the way the database applications handle dates. The updates also quash a few bugs and add new strict data validation capabilities for numbers, times, and dates. The updaters bring the Worldwide English edition of FileMaker Pro 4.0v2 to version 4.0v3, and the Worldwide English edition of FileMaker Pro 4.1v1 to version 4.1v3; FileMaker says updates for localized versions of FileMaker Pro should be available shortly. If you installed the short-lived FileMaker Pro 4.1v2 update, you must revert to FileMaker Pro 4.1v1 before updating to 4.1v3. We're happy to see FileMaker extending these date-related fixes to owners of FileMaker Pro 4.0, many of whom did not pay to upgrade to version 4.1 for its ODBC-related features. You can download the appropriate 1.2 MB updater from FileMaker's support Web pages. [GD]
