No Issue Next Week -- So we can all spend some relaxing time with our families and friends over the Thanksgiving holidays here in the U.S., we won't be publishing an issue of TidBITS next week on 02-Dec-02. I will continue moderating TidBITS Talk, and we'll be working on this year's annual gift issue during the extra week. We'll publish the next issue of TidBITS on 09-Dec-02, so until then, we hope those of you celebrating Thanksgiving have a great holiday! [ACE]
