In The News This Month...
ONLY 10 SHOPPING DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS! I just had to make sure you are aware of that fact. I can't believe it's almost here.

Here in McBride, we got snow last week but it is all melted now. It has been a very long time since I have seen a green Christmas. I have lived in this part of the world for 22 years and it has always snowed. I used to live in Vancouver, BC and it was the opposite there. It was very rare we had a white Christmas. One year we did have one and it was very nice.

Let me take this opportunity to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year! I look forward to keeping you informed, humoured, and educated every month next year.

That's that. Thanks for reading!

Did You Know...

The Main Library at Indiana University sinks over an inch every year because when it was built, engineers failed to take into account the weight of all the books that would occupy the building. Doh!

Word Tip: Making Your Pictures Stay In Place

It's easy to put a picture in a Word document, "Insert, Picture" and go from there. But putting the picture where you want and keeping it there can be almost impossible.

There is something called "Float over text" or "Move object with text," depending on which version of Word you are using. The concept is not difficult at all. Most of the time you want pictures to work just like text, so the picture gets bumped along as text is added or deleted from a doucment. For example, add a couple of paragraphs above the picture and you would want the picture to get bumped down automatically, along with the other stuff that is nearby. Sometimes you want your pictures to stay put. Say you are creating a flyer and you put your pictures on a certain location on the page and you don't want them to move automatically, no matter what happens to the rest of the document.

If you want a picture to "Float over text," right - click on the picture and pick "Format Picture." On the tab marked "Position," check the box marked "Float over text." If the box marked "Move with text" is checked, uncheck it. If the box marked "Move with text" is not checked, pick "Page" in the lower "From" box (the one marked "Vertical From:"). Click OK and you will be back in the document. Your picture may have moved. If it has, click and drag it anywhere you want and it will stay in place.

Windows Tip: Icon Hide and Seek

Do you have some awesome wallpapaer on your desktop that's covered by all those nasty little icons? Here's how to make them disappear, temporarily:

Windows 98 / 98:
First, you are going to need to have Active Desktop installed and active. If you have IE 4.0 or higher, you are probably all set in this department. Here's the step by step:

1. First open "My Computer" or "Windows Explorer." From the "View menu," go to "Folder Options," then click the "View tab."

2. Now, under the "Visual Settings" section, click the "Hide icons when the desktop is viewed as a web page" checkbox. Hit OK.

If you already had your desktop set to be viewed as a web page, you will find all your icons have magically disappeared. To get them back, right - click the desktop and select Active Desktop, then click the "View as web page" menu item. That will shut off the "View as a web page" property and all your icons will reappear. Right - click and repeat procedure to get rid of them again.

Windows ME / 2000:
1. Right -click your Desktop and select Active Desktop from the resulting menu. A sub menu will pop up. If the Active Desktop item doesn't have a check next to it, click it (Win 2000 users need to make sure the "show web content" item is checked instead).
2. From the same sub menu mentioned above, click the "Show desktop icons" menu item to turn them on or off.

Windows XP:
This one is actually the easiest of the bunch, if you know where to look. Just right - click your desktop, "Arrange Icons By," then click the "Show Desktop Icons" item.

That's it. I told you it was easy.
