Guest editors and Snow Leopard in the near future Site News
I'll be away from Mac OS X Hints until Monday, August 24th. In my absence, we'll have a couple of Macworld staffers -- Heather Kelly and Dan Miller -- posting the daily hints. They also covered for me back in July, so they're at least somewhat familiar with the duties now.

As a side note, Snow Leopard is expected to ship sometime in September. As with 10.5, it's my intent to start running 10.6 hints as soon as it's officially shipping, whenever that may be. So if you've been testing Snow Leopard and have found some interesting tidbits, get your hints ready for submission, and I'll be on the clock to push them live whenever the OS happens to ship.

(Note that you can't submit a hint early without breaking your NDA, so I'd advise against doing that. If any hints are entered into the queue prior to the ship date, they will be held until the OS is shipping and can be publicly disclosed.)

RE: "...they're [Heather & Dan] at least somewhat familiar with the duties now."

That's a rather snarky comment. From outward appearances the last time they filled in, the site was well managed and helpful hints continued to be vetted and published. If that's the success benchmark, they are totally familiar with the duties.

Welcome back Heather and Dan!

I didn't read that as snarky at all…

The intent was clearly *not* to be snarky in any way. I meant it in a good way, as they'd be able to spend more time on the actual hints, and less time on the intricacies of working with Geeklog and its sometimes-complicated posting rules for hints with code.

My apologies if it came across as snarky; that was not the objective!
