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.)

Matthew Cravit <> writes "A colleague of mine at work just purchased a Centris 660AV and AudioVision monitor. After sorting out the adapter mix-up, he tells me that the adapter has one glaring weakness. If you plug something in to the Video In port on the monitor, the adapter completely ignores that signal. In other words, the Video In jack on the AudioVision monitor is useless." [Noah Price of Apple was kind enough to confirm this, but he noted that the video input signal is present on the large cable, so a third party could make an adapter that brings it through to the video input port on the AudioVision monitor. -Adam]
