Best Book Bytes -- We're lousy at blowing our own horns, but we thought we'd mention several books written by TidBITS staff members garnered prizes in MyMac.com's third annual Book Bytes Awards. Contributing Editor Matt Neuburg's REALbasic: The Definitive Guide was selected as Best Programming Book, while Adam Engst's Crossing Platforms: A Macintosh-Windows Phrasebook (co-authored with David Pogue) was selected as the Best Mac-Win Book under $30. Not to be outdone, Managing Editor Jeff Carlson pulled in two awards: one for his Palm Organizers Visual QuickStart Guide and another for Real World Adobe Golive 4, which he co-authored with TidBITS contributor (and former NetBITS editor) Glenn Fleishman. (They recently published an updated edition for GoLive 5.) These books and others by the TidBITS staff are linked from our BookBITS page. [GD]
Fun Way to Send Attachments in Mail
If you're working in a file that you want to attach to a message in Apple Mail, you can transfer the file to Mail easily: From the title bar of the file's window, drag the little proxy icon to Mail's icon on the Dock. Your Mac will make Mail the active application and open a new outgoing message, with the file attached.
(If your icon won't drag, the file probably isn't saved.)
