[TxMt] Nightly build now does auto-update

Just a quick note that after reading the blog entry and clicking on  
the "latest build" link I was redirected to an error page that  
mentioned a precondition failed. Here is the exact text it gave me:

The precondition on the request for the URL /textmate/build/ 
TextMate_r488.tbz evaluated to false.

After a while of messing around with different links (thinking it was  
dead for some reason) I added a "www." in front of the above error  
page and the file immediately began to download.

Just thought you might like to be notified of that.
