2000 Holiday Hiatus

Send Article to a Friend

2000 Holiday Hiatus -- It's that time of year again when we at TidBITS spend time with our families and recover our strength for whatever the new year and Macworld Expo in San Francisco will bring. So we'll be taking the next two regularly scheduled issues off, though we'll be publishing our traditional gift issue later this week, and we'll return with an issue on 01-Jan-01, the first day of the next millennium (yeah, we're calendar purists). TidBITS Talk will continue for much, though not all, of this time, and of course, if there's any notable breaking news, you'll be able to find it on our home page. From all of us to all of you, then, best wishes for the coming year and may your hopes and dreams come true. Personally, I hope Apple's Mac OS X engineers are working hard to restore aspects of familiarity, flexibility, and power to the new operating system's default interface. [ACE]
