Adding Links in Snow Leopard's Mail

Apple Mail in Snow Leopard now has a Command-key shortcut for adding a link to an email.

If you use plain-text email, this will not be helpful at all, but if you send styled email, it's a nice shortcut for adding URLs to your email messages. Simply select the word(s) you want to make into a link, press Command-K, and enter the URL to build into the link.

DealBITS Drawing: Midnight Mansion

Send Article to a Friend

I've become more interested in retro games of late, so I was intrigued when Vern Jensen of ActionSoft asked about doing a DealBITS drawing for his Midnight Mansion game. It's an explore-a-world kind of game in which you navigate your Indiana Jones-like character over obstacles and past the nasties in an attempt to gather treasure - if you enjoyed playing Dark Castle or Prince of Persia, you'll like Midnight Mansion. The graphics are colorful, cartoonish, and kid-friendly, though they won't be taxing your graphics card, and the sound is well-done. In my initial testing, I especially liked the tutorial mode in which signs within the game itself teaches the basics; with other games, I've sometimes found it difficult to pick up basic gameplay before I feel the need to get back to work.
