Poll Results: TidBITS is Ten!

Send Article to a Friend

Poll Results: TidBITS is Ten! Almost 1,400 people participated in last week's poll asking when you started reading TidBITS, and it took a few days for me to figure out why 1993, 1994, and 1995 were the most popular answers. Then I realized that those years corresponded with the heyday of my Internet Starter Kit for Macintosh books, which talked only a little about TidBITS but included it as the example of how to subscribe to a mailing list. For the full results, check out the poll link below. [ACE]
