Create Rules Based on Entourage Messages

When creating rules in Entourage 2008, you can save some time by selecting a message like those you want the rule to work on before defining the rule. That way, when you add criteria to your rule, Entourage fills in the data based on the data in the selected message. So if you wanted to filter messages containing TidBITS, you could select an issue and add a new "From Contains" criterion to a rule. Entourage will automatically fill in the editors@tidbits.com address in the criterion.

Getting Oriented for the Expo

TidBITS-338 had a MailBIT pointing Macworld Expo attendees to a Newton-based Boston subway map and noting that Adam will be doing a book signing at the Macmillan booth on Thursday from 11 to 1. Last week, I didn't know what booth Macmillan would be in, but with the help of a Director-based program called booth.finder from Macworld Online, it appears that the Macmillan will be exhibiting at the World Trade Center, booth 5604.

Booth.finder enables you to figure out exactly where different vendors are located and become better oriented to the layout of the two exhibition halls. You can run the application live over the Web if you have the appropriate Shockwave plug-in installed, though I recommend downloading a stand-alone version (available for Mac or Windows), which you can run anytime you like without being connected to the Internet. Over my 56K frame relay connection, it took almost a minute for the plug-in to load.

Those who are less interested in finding specific booths than in finding specific parties won't want to miss the Hess Macworld Memorial Party List. This list was formerly maintained by Robert Hess, the MacWEEK associate editor who died earlier this year (see TidBITS-310). You can view the list on the Web or request it by sending email to <partylist@aol.com>.

If you can't attend the show but have a sufficiently net-savvy Macintosh, you can take advantage of Apple's reporting about the show. Apple will be presenting a number of events, including webcasts of keynote speeches, a spycam, and live chats featuring Expo "movers and shakers."

A few other organizations and individuals will no doubt be providing daily coverage of the show; a quick search in your favorite search engine on "macworld expo boston" should find those reports as they go online.
