I hope you all have a fun entrance to the New Year. I'm getting the final touches for the Hints contest ready, and the rules and announcement should be up by Monday.

I'll be celebrating with a movie marathon on my new Apple TV. :)

Happy Holiday and Site News Site News
I'm going to be off with family over the holiday weekend; so there will be no hints published on Friday or next Monday. I'll be back publishing hints on Tuesday.

Also next week there will be an announcement of a new monthly hints contest to begin in January. So if you get new goodies for your Mac or iOS device, start thinking of novel ways to use them and prepare to share with the rest of us in the New Year.

Thanks to everybody for all the contributions, and have a great holiday and a safe weekend.

Craig A.

Happy Thanksgiving! Site News
Happy Thanksgiving Day to all our readers in the U.S. I'll be away with family the next few days and will resume publication on Monday.

I do have a request to make, as there haven't been many hint submissions related to either iLife 11 or MS Office 2011. If you have discovered any new tricks or uses or pitfalls regarding one or more of the applications in those suites, please consider sharing them with the community.

My thanks to all of you,

Craig A.

No hints today Site News
No, it's not an undocumented holiday. I'm on travel and will be back tomorrow. Keep the good hints coming in the meantime.

I'll be trying out Parallels 6 and see what can be culled from that.

FQDN change to hints.macworld.com Site News
The site's fully-qualified domain name changed yesterday from www.macosxhints.com to hints.macworld.com.

DNS redirection should be taking place automatically but you will want to update your bookmarks. You may also need to update saved login credentials to reflect the new domain.

Please let me know if you encounter any difficulties resulting from the changeover.

Thanks!
Craig

P.S. The MacOSXHints forums will be changing as well: hintsforums.macworld.com.
