Got this in email today... BBEdit is the program I use the most of any software, and have for years. I edit code, HTML, do all sorts of stuff in it.
I highly recommend getting BBEdit—it’s a steal. I wrote this post because I like the product that much—I get no commission or anything when you buy it.
I just wanted to let you know that we're going to be running a special word-of-mouth-only deal to celebrate the 30th anniversary of BBEdit's first commercial release.
To celebrate, for 30 hours beginning at midnight (EDT) on May 11, 2023 and ending at 6am EDT on May 13, 1993, anyone can purchase a new single-user license for BBEdit, for themselves (or a friend) for US$30. Use the coupon code "BBEDIT30" to get the special pricing.
In addition, we'll be adding special 30th anniversary commemorative merch -- a limited-edition enamel pin and T-shirt -- to the Bare Bones Software merch shop, located at: <https://merch.barebones.com/>.
We don't plan to run ads or issue a formal press release regarding this rare (for us) promo; thus there is no applicable embargo, and you are welcome to spread the word however you want, at any time.
Fun facts: when Bare Bones Software sold the first commercial license for BBEdit: the Nokia 2210 was the hot new cell phone, John Sculley III was the CEO of Apple Computer, Inc., and "Unforgiven" had been voted "best picture."
If you have any questions, or need any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me — Naomi P

I cannot but agree with your praise of BBEdit. It is so long ago that I bought my first copy of the program, I can't even remember. In my opinion it is the number one program-text editor.
