Message from the management: new editor for Mac OS X Hints Site News
Greetings, Hintlings,

As of today, I am taking over as editor of Mac OS X Hints. Old-timers may recognize my name: I guest edited a number of times when Rob was on vacation or having kids. For those who don't know me, I'm a senior contributor to Macworld, where I am also the iTunes Guy, and I've written a couple of Take Control books, most recently about Scrivener and iTunes. If you want to learn more about me, check out my web site, Kirkville.

I'd like to thank Craig for all the work he's done here over the years. I wish him the best as he moves on to other ventures, and I hope you'll all join me in giving him a big thank you!

Welcome, Kirk!

I've enjoyed your work for quite awhile, and I look forward to the effects of your curation of the site.

Thanks for taking this on!

Craig, thanks for the memories.

Kirk, welcome. I hope you many years of success in Apple device hints despite facing the rising tide of decreasingly accessible end-user locked down systems.

Can I start out by asking if search can be fixed? Actually, it looks like maybe some improvement has been done since I last tried it, as I used to pretty much have to go into advanced to search just for hints. It strikes me as odd that the default behavior on a site dedicated to hints usually returns comments as the first results and not hints.

OK, I hope that didn't get us off on the wrong foot... it's just been something rubbing me the wrong way, probably since the site incorporated search features way back when.

Actually, I second that request. I've usually found searches here to be frustrating.

And I second the thanks to Craig and the welcome to Kirk.

Hello Kirk,

looking forward to reading you, which, as I already know, will be enjoyable as well as educating.
BTW I hope you now still find time to play Go ;-)

Greetings, Tom
