Stop Eye Strain in Excel 2008

You can make text bigger in Excel by zooming to a larger percentage with the Zoom control in the toolbar, or by selecting the cells containing too-small text, choosing Format > Cells (Command-1), and then setting options in the Font pane. You can also increase the default font size for new sheets by modifying the Size field (next to the Standard Font field) in the General pane of Excel's preferences.

 
 

AOCE Mailing List

There has been an increasing amount of interest expressed in the Apple Open Collaboration Environment (AOCE) in various newsgroups recently. I've decided to sponsor a mailing list that covers these topics.

The list's purpose is to provide a forum for discussion for PowerTalk users, PowerShare administrators, and software developers within which they can share advice, problems, and so on with each other and with Apple. Topics include Apple products that form the core of AOCE, including the system software components and PowerTalk and PowerShare, third-party "mail-enabled" applications, specific third-party applications like PowerRules that are dedicated to AOCE usage, AOCE programming, gateways (P/CSAMs), and AppleScripts.

I have a commitment from Apple and StarNine to monitor the list (there are already several subscribers from both these companies on the list) as well as people from other companies and users and administrators from around the world.

If you want to request membership send email to <aoce-list-request@umich.edu>, and if you want to send a message to everyone on the list use <aoce-list@umich.edu>.
