DealBITS Drawing: DLexpo VIP Pass Winners -- Congratulations to Andrew Laurence of uci.edu (who was apparently rewarded at a karmic level for writing the EyeHome review in last week's issue), Andrew Cohen of sandrew.org, Kerry Millerick of pacbell.net, Martin Cohen of acm.org, and Pat Dengler of mac.com, whose entries were chosen randomly in last week's DealBITS drawing and who each received a VIP pass to last weekend's DLexpo. Everyone else who entered received a discount code worth over $100 as well. Thanks to the 60 people who entered, and keep an eye out for future DealBITS drawings! [ACE]
Copy Before Submitting Web Forms
Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.
