Copy Excel Selection as a Picture

Want to show someone a chunk of an Excel spreadsheet via email or iChat? You could take a screenshot, but if you want to show just a portion of the Excel window and you don't use a utility like Snapz Pro, you can do this right from within Excel 2008. Make a selection, hold down the Shift key, and choose Copy Picture from the Edit menu. You can select whether the selection will be rendered as though it was shown on screen or as though it was printed. Then just switch to your desired destination and paste.


SpamCon Foundation Offers Anti-Spam Resources

SpamCon Foundation Offers Anti-Spam Resources -- Everyone hates spam, but some people go the extra mile to help stamp it out. That's especially true of Tom Geller, executive director of the recently founded SpamCon Foundation, a publicly supported California non-profit organization. A Macintosh veteran of ZiffNet/Mac and MacWEEK, Tom has long been focusing energy on reducing spam, first through the Suespammers Project and now through the SpamCon Foundation. Services available from the SpamCon Foundation include guides for individuals looking to reduce the amount of spam they receive, help for marketers who want to use email without spamming, a searchable database of over 7,000 media stories on spam, a library of hard statistics about spam to support arguments about its negative impact, and free receive-only email addresses in the domain. The SpamCon Foundation also publishes a weekly newsletter and runs mailing lists surrounding the spam issue. I'd encourage anyone interested in reducing to visit the SpamCon Foundation's Web site, and if you think they're doing good work, to consider supporting them with tax-deductible donations. [ACE]
