Dartmouth TidBITS Mirror Gone -- Those of you who have been reading TidBITS for years may remember that issues of TidBITS were originally made available on the Web at Dartmouth College's site, back in 1994. William Murphy converted the issues from setext to HTML, and Andy Williams kindly made the space available on the Dartmouth Web server. In subsequent years, of course, we focused on our own Web server, but Randy Spydell helped us maintain a mirror of TidBITS issues at the Dartmouth site. Dartmouth has decided to remove the mirror (which is no longer as necessary as it was initially), but they've left redirects in place from the main TidBITS page there. Nonetheless, if you're still using the Dartmouth pages, now's the time to switch over to our main site. Thanks to William, Andy, and Randy for all their help over the years! [ACE]
Enabling Auto Spelling Correction in Snow Leopard
In Snow Leopard, the automatic spelling correction in applications is not usually activated by default. To turn it on, make sure the cursor's insertion point is somewhere where text can be entered, and either choose Edit > Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically or, if the Edit menu's submenu doesn't have what you need, Control-click where you're typing and choose Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically from the contextual menu that appears. The latter approach is particularly likely to be necessary in Safari and other WebKit-based applications, like Mailplane.
