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.

Vote in the 2007 TidBITS Gift Guide Survey

Send Article to a Friend

Thanks to TidBITS readers near and far, we've collected all sorts of weird and wonderful holiday gift ideas, along with a few painfully obvious ones (iPhone, anyone?). We spent the last few days arranging them into categories, tapping Twitterspace for a few ideas to flesh it all out, and creating the 2007 TidBITS Gift Guide Survey, which is now open for voting.

So please, come and rate the gift ideas about which you have an opinion (and if you don't have an opinion, just skip that line in the survey). We'll collect votes through at least the end of the week such that we can publish the final results by 10-Dec-07.
