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.)

Get Rich Quick? Inspired by last year's $10,000 Macintosh Web server security challenge (see TidBITS-317), Sweden's Joakim Jardenberg is conducting a Macintosh Web server "Crack a Mac" challenge. From 10-Feb-97 through 10-Apr-97, Joakim is offering a cash prize to anyone who can alter the contents of the home page on a standard Macintosh Web server set up for the contest running WebSTAR 2.0. The prize this time is 10,000 Swedish crowns (about $1,350 U.S.), but it's worth noting that no one claimed the prize from last year's challenge. Perhaps the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, whose Web pages were recently cracked, should think about hosting them on Macintosh servers. [GD]
