Wahoo's Computer & Internet Tips Newsletter - February 2007

In The News This Month...
Hello and welcome to February's Newsletter! This month is the Chinese New Year and this year it's the year of the boar. I know a lot of bores, if you know what I mean. This is also the month of love or so the card companies tell us. What a great way to make money, eh? Let's invent a holiday, promote it like crazy, and stand back and watch the money roll in. Wish I could have thought of it. Then I wouldn't be sending you this lovely newsletter every month and keeping you educated. Good thing I didn't think about Valentine's Day then! You wouldn't be educated and just be lost souls roaming the earth. Whew! That could have been a close one.

Anyways, spring is coming next month, or so I hope. I'm done with the whole winter thing; long nights, short days, snow, cold, wind, boots, layers of clothing, gloves, toques, etc. I want to see the sun again! Who's with me? Well that's enough small talk. Let's get down to it.

This month I have included 2 articles for your reading enjoyment. First one is called MS Word Tip: Convert Text to a Table and the second one is called Windows XP Tip: Get Your Thumbnails In a Row. Hope you enjoy them!

That's that. Thanks for reading!

Did You Know...?

Antarctica is the only land on our planet that is not owned by any country. Ninety percent of the world's ice covers Antarctica. This ice also represents seventy percent of all the fresh water in the world. As strange as it sounds, however, Antarctica is essentially a desert. The average yearly total precipitation is about two inches. Although covered with ice (all but 0.4% of it), Antarctica is the driest place on the planet, with an absolute humidity lower than the Gobi desert.

MS Word Tip: Convert Text To A Table

Word includes a function that lets you convert text into table format. For example, if you have a list of words you think would be better displayed in a table format, you can tell Word to put the text into a table for you.

You need to decide how to separate the text into columns. In other words, you need to tell Word where to separate the text. This can be done using paragraphs, commas, tabs, or other characters. For example, if you select commas, Word will place text in a new column or row after each comma.

To convert text into table format:
1. Select the appropriate text.
2. From the Table menu, point to Convert and click Text to Table.
3. From the dialog box that appears, select the number of rows and columns for the table.
4. Under Separate Text At, select the method you want to use for separating the text.
5. Click OK.

Word will automatically put the text into table format using the criteria you specified.

Windows XP Tip: Get Your Thumbnails In A Row

For folders that contain only a small number of graphics files, Windows XP offers Filmstrip view, which, despite its name, has nothing to do with video. Choose View, Filmstrip to display a preview of the selected file at the top of the right Explorer pane, along with thumbnails of the other files in the folder in a strip running along the bottom of the right pane.

Below the previewed image are slideshow forward and backward buttons, and two buttons that rotate the image left and right. Be forewarned: the rotation buttons actually open and save the file permanently in its rotated state. This is less important if you're using an uncompressed format such as .bmp (bitmap) or a loss-less compression format such as .gif. But rotating .jpg or other files with "lossy" compression will reduce the quality of the file with each rotation.

If you don't see the Filmstrip option in the View menu, choose View, Customize This Folder, click the Customize tab, select Photo Album in the drop-down list at the top, and click OK.
