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]
Track Changes Dates Reset on Save As in Word 2008
If you regularly use the Save As feature to create new drafts while working in Word 2008, you might notice that with Track Changes enabled, previously time-stamped comments and edits have their times reset to the Save As date and time. Work around this by sticking with your original file, but using Save As (or just File > Duplicate in the Finder) to make backup copies.
