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.)

Recently in NetBITS -- If you're interested in the burgeoning problem of spam email, check out the last two issues of NetBITS. In NetBITS-003_, Adam wrote what's can be done personally, commercially, and legally to limit the vast quantity of unwanted, unsolicited, commercial email many of us now receive. Then, in NetBITS-004_, NetBITS Editor in Chief Glenn Fleishman looked at ways of stopping spam at the server level. Other topics included a look at how time zones relate to the times displayed in email headers, how to use the Internet to set your computer's clock correctly, and thoughts about purchasing ISDN equipment for a small office.
