Open URLs Quickly from BBEdit

If you're working on a bit of text (HTML or otherwise) in BBEdit, and you see a URL that you'd like to open, the fastest way is to Command-click it. Most BBEdit users probably already know this tip, but if you don't, it's a huge time-saver. (The same trick works in BBEdit's free little brother, TextWrangler.)

TidBITS Back End Changes Coming Soon

TidBITS Back End Changes Coming Soon -- After many years of using the same production, issue generation, and distribution tools, we're going to be switching in the next week or two to a new system that we've been working on. I'll explain more about what we've done and why once it's in place, but for now I merely want to give you all a heads up that the next issue - assuming everything tests out properly - will likely be sent through the new system and will look just a bit different. In the unlikely event that something goes wrong, please don't tell us about it, since we'll be watching with test accounts and will post any necessary status reports and explanations on our ExtraBITS weblog. That's what I did last week when a small percentage of readers received a Web Crossing-generated notification that the issue had been released, instead of the actual issue itself. I've resolved that problem within our user account database. [ACE]
