TidBITS Predelivery Service -- Why are you receiving TidBITS today? Well, we know that our readers want the most timely Macintosh information, and now we've come up with the best method to deliver it to you. Starting with this issue, you'll receive TidBITS in its entirety a day before we're finished writing and editing it. We can't explain all the technology to you - it's a mixture of Web Crossing, FileMaker Pro, and a dash of HyperCard, all running on a Mac SE/30 with a blown analog board (and no security problems, thanks to System 7!) that we control via Timbuktu Pro - but we have to launch our patent lawsuits against Research in Motion, Microsoft, and the people who wrote "Back to the Future" before we can go into details. No matter what, rest assured that you'll get the same high quality content before we're even done with it. [ACE]
