A brief hints hiatus... Site News
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the USA, the day for good friends, too much food, too much fun, and football on TV (and in a rare treat, my Broncos are playing this year!). As such, there won't be any new hints here on Thursday or Friday (the traditional first shopping day of the holiday season; get out there and spend, retailers say!).

I published a few extra tips today to get you through the break, and we'll return again with business as usual on Monday morning. Have a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday, everyone!

As a quick aside, I'll be on the Your Mac Life radio show tonight, talking about why I have some issues with Spotlight...

Actually, in Canada Thanksgiving is celebrated in October.

"In Canada, where the harvest generally ends earlier in the year, the holiday is celebrated on the second Monday in October, which is observed in the U.S. as Columbus Day."
-Wikipedia [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thanksgiving]

Actually, he said "... in the USA" which is, of course, where this page is published. Far be it from us to forget that things are different north of the border. Sheesh.

Broncos 9-2!!!!

He changed it from "in the USA and Canada," to "in the USA," after the first two posts.

Actually, in Canada we have already had Thanksgiving. It is celebrated earlier here due to the earlier harvest, which is due to the shorter growing season in the north.

That being said, I send my regards to all those south of the border. Happy Thanksgiving! :)

Sigh. You'd think, with Canadian parents, I would have remembered this! Instead, I just read the first line of the Wiki entry and went with it :).

I fixed the article now; thanks to both of you for pointing it out.

We had ours already ... just you folks in the US celebrating tomorrow.

The good news is that my company works with a lot of folks in the US so while it won't be a holiday tomorrow for us it will be nice and slow (which is good cause the weatherman says we have a big snowstorm coming :( )

Happy Thanksgiving, Rob. Thank you for all your hard work keeping us informed on how to do really useful, cool and/or fun things with our Macs.

I subscribe to the notion that "my two favorite teams are the Redskins and whoever is playing Dallas this week," so I would have been rooting hard for the Broncos anyway. But, for your sake, I'll root even harder for them!
