1,000 Issues of TidBITS

Adam Engst:

This marks our 1,000th issue of TidBITS, and we can barely believe that we’ve arrived at this point, more than 19 years after Tonya and I took our first tentative publishing steps in April 1990. But here we are, going strong and writing and publishing more than ever before.

Congratulations, and keep up the good work!
