UpdateAgent Correction -- After reading last week's article on installing Mac OS X (see "Out of the Box: Installing Mac OS X" in TidBITS-574), the folks at Insider Software pointed out that the TidBITS copy editing team might want to spend some time back in the box. We incorrectly listed UpdateAgent as "UpgradeAgent," and priced it at $70 instead of the actual $50 amount, which covers one year of service. Insider Software also noted that UpdateAgent is available on CD, which is handy for consultants or people with more than one Mac. Our stash of wet noodles has thankfully been drying in a closet for several weeks, but rest assured they've been re-moistened in preparation for a good flogging. [JLC]
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.
