Most of the time, when I download something it’s a file archive of some kind – usually a tarball or a zip file. This could be some source code for an app that isn’t included in Gentoo’s Portage tree, some documentation for an internal corporate app, or even something as mundane as a new WordPress installation.

Excel 2007 can open a document from a previous version of outlook in Compatibility Mode, but if you want to take advantage of some of the new features you’ll need to convert the document.(You can use 1.1 million rows in Excel 2007 instead of only 65k in previous versions)

Along with being a major computer geek I am also a music geek. I am also a guitarist. I have been playing guitar for around 6 years and I have some cool equipment but nothing like this.

The tiny size of the comment boxes on almost any blog anywhere drives me crazy, but I’ve got a solution. All you have to do is install the Resizeable Form Fields extension for Firefox, and then you can resize any input box on the page, including textboxes and text area boxes.

After the tenth time saving an Excel spreadsheet and then emailing it to a co-worker still using Office 2003, I’m willing to save in 2003 format by default. It’s not like the rest of the office is going to switch for a very long time anyway, and this way I can stop sending them the wrong documents by mistake!
