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]
Mighty Mouse as Application Switcher
Looking for an easier way to switch between multiple applications? Within Keyboard and Mouse Preferences under System Preferences, you can configure the scroll wheel to act as an Application Switcher. Press the scroll button to bring up Application Switcher, scroll to toggle to the application you want, and hit the scroll button again to switch. You can also double-click the scroll button to quickly switch to the previously active application.
