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.

Feed the Hungry While Cooking Thanksgiving Dinner -- Thanksgiving is all about family and food, and to help those who may not have either, we'll be donating $1 from the sale of each copy of Joe Kissell's "Take Control of Thanksgiving Dinner" during the month of November to the San Francisco Food Bank, a non-profit organization (where Joe has volunteered) whose mission is to end hunger in San Francisco.

If you've read one of Joe's books, you know he's great at helping you successfully work through complex computer tasks like installing Mac OS X or creating a solid backup scheme. He also did an amazing job with writing about the entire process of planning and preparing a Thanksgiving dinner, and honestly, given all the editing, testing, and internal linking, we think "Take Control of Thanksgiving Dinner" is one of our best titles ever. You can buy the book in our usual electronic format for only $5 this week, during our 50 percent-off anniversary sale, but if you think you'll need a printed copy in the kitchen, you can buy it that way too for $19.99.
