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.)

TidBITS Servers Moving 18-Feb-05

TidBITS Servers Moving 18-Feb-05 -- Both digital.forest, our primary Internet host, and Technical Editor Geoff Duncan, who runs our database servers, are moving, and (not-quite-coincidentally) our servers ended up scheduled to move at roughly the same time. We expect the downtime to be somewhere between 90 minutes and 3 hours during the morning and early afternoon on 18-Feb-05, Pacific time, but given Seattle traffic and the general orneriness of machines that haven't physically moved in years, that's just an estimate. The move also means our email will be down and no TidBITS or Take Control Web pages will be available while the machines are in transit. We know the downtime may be stressful for some readers, in that case, just take a few deep breaths and reflect upon how much more stressful it is for us! [ACE]
