Stylin' a Word Comment Balloon

If you work with Word's Comment feature, you may find that the comment-balloon text is too small to work with, or you may just want some variety. To modify the style, choose Format > Style. From the List pop-up menu, choose All Styles. Select Balloon Text from the Style list. Modify the style as you like, and then click Apply. I like Arial Narrow, 12 point.


CEI 420 Printer

Bravo to CEI Systems, whose new promotion is a flyer promising "Two Tax Time Tips from CEI." When opened, the flyer reveals a photo of the company's CEI 420 printer on one side - and a packet of Extra-Strength Tylenol pain reliever stapled to the other. The CEI 420 printer is a quiet 420 character-per-second dot-matrix impact printer suitable for multi-part forms, including invoices, W-2 and other tax forms, and checks. It is appropriate for uses where inexpensive, fast, high-quantity printing is desired. A Mac-compatible driver is available, and seems to work quite well; the printer is a real speed-demon compared to the elderly ImageWriter II.
