Seymour Cray Passes Away -- This is not strictly Macintosh-related, but we wish to note the passing of Seymour Cray on 05-Oct-96, from injuries suffered in an automobile accident. Cray built the world's first transistor-based supercomputer in 1958 and is widely credited with the concept of Reduced Instruction Set Computing (RISC), which is the basis for the PowerPC and other modern microprocessors. Although Cray's business ventures weren't always successful (Cray Research was sold to Silicon Graphics a few years ago), he will likely remain one of the most influential figures in high-performance computing for some time to come.

Delete All Comments in Word in a Flash
You needn't clear comments in a Word document one by one. Instead, bring out the big guns to delete all of them at once:
1. Chose Tools > Keyboard Shortcuts.
2. Under Categories, select Tools.
3. Under Commands, select DeleteAllCommentsInDoc.
4. With the insertion point in the "Press new keyboard shortcut" field, press keys to create a keyboard shortcut. (I use Control-7)
5. Click the Assign button.
6. Click OK.
You can now press your keyboard shortcut to zap out the comments.
The steps above work in Word 2008; they likely work nearly as described in older versions of Word.
