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.)

 
 

More RAM for IIf and IIg

Send Article to a Friend

More RAM for IIf and IIg -- In TidBITS-108/24-Feb-92 we reported a rumor that the LaserWriter IIf and IIg were likely to be upgraded with extra RAM, and indeed, that has happened. We hoped that Apple US would follow the lead of Apple UK and offer free upgrades for people who already bought one of the printers. This has not happened, and users who wish to add an additional 4 MB of RAM to the either of the printers will have to buy a 4 MB upgrade kit, which lists for $249. Oh well, if you heeded our advice and waited, you can now get a IIf with 4 MB for $3599 list or a IIg with 8 MB for $4599 list, instead of the previous 2 MB and 5 MB incarnations.
