Wahoo's Microsoft Tips Newsletter -
June 2002

In The News This Month...
Well, the weather is finally co-operating and has been very warm the last couple of weeks. Last weekend (June 21 - 23) it was Pioneer Days and the weather was perfect! We've had a bit of rain the last couple of days but we need it to moisten everything again.

As of tomorrow (July 1) all the rivers and streams in the area will be open! Let the good fishing begin! It's also Canada Day here in Canada. I must find my Canada & BC flags and hang them up. I can't seem to remember which box of the hundreds we have in our shed they're in. I hope I find them before Canada Day is over. Anyways, Happy Canada Day!

And for our American friends, Independence Day for them is July 4. Happy July 4! I hope to see some of you passing thorugh this way this summer.

That's that. Thanks for reading!

Is The Molson's (Canadian) Beer Sold In The U.S. Watered Down?

For what it's worth, a taste panel organized by James Robertson, author of The Great American Beer Book, agreed with your low opinion of the Molson sold in the U.S. When asked about this, Martlet Importing Company, which handles Molson's U.S. sales, claimed the American and Canadian versions were identical when brewed, and said that any differences arose from the fact that beer is perishable, and can go stale in the time it takes to reach American supermarket shelves.

To check this, Robertson procured samples of Molson Ale, Golden Ale, and Canadian in Montreal and had the taste panel compare them to samples of the same Molson products that had just arrived in New Jersey. Except for one batch of U.S. Molson Ale, which was described as "skunky", the panelists agreed the fresh U.S. and Canadian versions were virtually identical, the one difference being that the Canadian stuff, which came in cans, was more carbonated than the bottled U.S. variety.

Word Tip: Watermarking

If you want to add a watermark to your logo in Word, here's how:

Click Insert, Picture, Clipart, and find your logo. In the Picture toolbar, click on the Image Control icon and choose Watermark. The Text Wrapping option should be set to None before you're done.

For a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) environment, use the Page Layout viewing option.

I've never tried this yet but I've been told this will work in versions 97 and higher.

Windows Tip: How To Revive a Dead PC

I enjoy pondering things. If a mime swears, does his mother wash his hands with soap? Where do forest rangers go "to get away from it all?"

But when my PC won't start, I don't usually have time to muse about it. I need practical answers quick. Here's my emergency checklist:

1. Turn off your PC, wait 10 seconds, and then turn it back on. This often works.

2. Check the obvious. Make sure power cords, cables, and connectors are firmly connected. Check your surge protector for a blown fuse, or for damage from a power surge.

3. Look for clues. When a PC boots up, it runs a test of hardware components called POST (Power On Self Test). Watch your monitor for system warnings and error messages. (Press Pause to freeze the screen if the messages disappear too quickly.) After running POST, your PC initializes higher - level devices like the CD-ROM drive. Watch for warnings or note the last initialized device to appear before the PC locks up.

4. Listen for clues. Pay close attention as your PC starts up. You should hear both the power supply fan and the hard disk rev up. If either one is quiet, it may be the culprit. You may also hear a series of beeps before your system freezes. That's a primitive error message. Note the number and the length (long or short) of the beeps. Your system manual or the computer manufacturer may tell you how to decode the PC's audio error message.

5. Smell for clues. Though rare, monitors have been known to spontaneously combust. And a fried hard disk can release smoke. If you smell the delicate bouquet of burning circuitry, unplug your computer immediately and get help from a trained technician.
