Shorten URLs in TextExpander

If your Twitter client doesn't automatically shorten URLs for you, you can use TextExpander to shrink those long links to tweetable lengths. First, add the Internet Productivity group by choosing File > Add Predefined Group > Internet Productivity Snippets. Then, to shorten a URL using a service like TinyURL, copy the destination URL to the clipboard, and type the abbreviation /tinyurl to insert the shortened URL at the insertion point.

Eudora Light/Pro Updated

Send Article to a Friend

Eudora Light/Pro Updated -- Qualcomm has released version 3.0.2b7 of Eudora Light and Pro. We seldom write about beta releases of software, thanks to the hyperactive release habits of Internet software, but this beta fixes some potentially annoying problems, such as an extra line when typing and most notably, nickname file corruption, caused in at least one case by dragging nicknames into a closed nickname file. The downloads are 1.5 MB (for Eudora Pro) and 2 MB (for Eudora Light), and you can only install the Eudora Pro beta if you already have Eudora Pro 3.0 or 3.0.1 installed. [ACE]
