Open Recent Office 2008 Docs by Date

Office 2008 applications like Word and Excel now list recently opened documents on a File > Open Recent submenu. Choose More from that menu, and you'll get a multifunction Project Gallery dialog. Click the Recent button at the top and then select a date range in the Dates list to find files that were last opened today, yesterday, earlier in the week, last week, and so forth. (The Settings pane in the Project Gallery dialog lets you set how many recently opened files show in the File > Open Recent submenu.)

Claris is selling FileMaker Pro 2.1 in the U.S. for a mere $99 and in Canada for $149 until 31-Dec-94. I'm sure it's purely a marketing move, but since FileMaker Pro 2.1 generally sells for about $265 discounted, it's worth calling Claris for more information if you've been interested in getting FileMaker Pro anyway.
