Rev Now Has Online Ordering -- The folks at 6prime wrote to say that they were inundated with orders for Rev after my review of their excellent revision control program in TidBITS-362. To better handle the volume, they've scrambled to put an order form online at the URL below. The price remains $49.95. Shipping and handling (and a bonus mug) is $4 for U.S. and Canadian addresses, but if you don't need a disk or mug or are outside of the U.S. or Canada, you can save the $4 and go for email delivery.

Avoid Simple Typos
If, like me, you find yourself typing 2911 in place of 2011 entirely too often, you can have Mac OS X (either Lion or Snow Leopard) fix such typos for you automatically. Just open the Language & Text pane of System Preferences, click the Text button at the top, and then add a text substitution by clicking the + button underneath the list. It won't work everywhere (for that you'll want a utility like Smile's TextExpander), but it should work in applications like Pages and TextEdit, and in Save dialog boxes.
