My First C Compiler -- Broderbund Software has announced a new addition to its award-winning children's CD-ROM titles. "My First C Compiler" provides children ages 4 to 7 with a full, working ANSI C compiler with Macintosh Toolbox support, combined with a colorful interface and animated characters that take children through stages of designing their own applications. "If we want our kids to be competitive in tomorrow's job market, we've got to get them coding today," said project manager Cass Ibrary. Among My First C Compiler's cast of characters are Robby Recursion (who helps toddlers design elegant code), Doctor Bracket (helps with syntax checking), and Guy CGI (who walks children through designing hit counters and Web-based discussion forums). "Remember, tomorrow's Webmasters are watching Power Rangers today," said Ibrary. "It's best to get them thinking in these terms as early as possible." My First C Compiler is expected to add support for Java, Perl, and C++ in the third quarter of this year. [DG]
Find Next Without Using the Find Dialog in Word 2008
Rarely do you want to find just one instance of a word or phrase in Word. Instead of trying to keep Word 2008's Find and Replace dialog showing while searching, which can be awkward on a small screen, try the Next Find control. After you've found the term you're looking for once, click the downward-pointing double arrow button at the bottom of the vertical scroll bar to find the next instance of your search term. The upward-pointing double arrow finds the previous instance, which is way easier than switching to Current Document Up in the expanded Find and Replace dialog.
