Find Next Without Using the Find Dialog in Word 2008

Rarely do you want to find just one instance of a word or phrase in Word. Instead of trying to keep Word 2008's Find and Replace dialog showing while searching, which can be awkward on a small screen, try the Next Find control. After you've found the term you're looking for once, click the downward-pointing double arrow button at the bottom of the vertical scroll bar to find the next instance of your search term. The upward-pointing double arrow finds the previous instance, which is way easier than switching to Current Document Up in the expanded Find and Replace dialog.

 
 

Network Play

Send Article to a Friend

I still haven't beaten four computer players on ingenious mode (well, not without cheating), so needless to say, you don't have to have a network to enjoy Spaceward Ho! Nevertheless, there's something so much more enjoyable about bashing your best friend's head instead of a computer's. To play on a network, someone must create a new game and place it on a fileserver, TOPS network, or FolderShare (for those System 7.0 beta folks). Each person playing must then open up the shared game from the server. The game file is where turns are updated, status kept, etc. While this is a bit inconvenient right now, it will be a boon once System 7.0 and its FolderShare features are released.

One of the best features of the network play is the ability to set a time limit for moves. This means that you can set up a game with a 5 minute time limit and play all day at work with your co-workers. (I take no responsibility for this suggestion.) This is especially nice, since you can wait for John to go out to lunch, his turns will expire every five minutes, and you can attack without him mounting any defense. After all, all's fair in war. Other than that, network play is identical to playing versus the computer.
