How do I get Excel to work with 2 monitors?
By default, Excel is set to force any worksheets to open in one Excel window. That means you can’t look at something side-by-side - bet that’s annoying for you too? Here’s a simple fix, allowing Excel to open each file as a separate instance; like Word you can open multiple Excel files in multiple Excel windows now and move them around.
In Excel 2007 > Office button > Excel options > Advance > scroll down to General > check “Ignore other applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange”.
If you’re using Office 2003 look here for how to get to the checkbox.
Exactly what I was wondering about a few days ago. Useful, thanks!
Here lies the huge irony in this discussion. Persistent pseudonyms aren’t ways to hide who you are. They provide a way to be who you are. You can finally talk about what you really believe; your real politics, your real problems, your real sexuality, your real family, your real self. Much of the support for “real names” comes from people who don’t want to hear about controversy, but controversy is only a small part of the need for pseudonyms. For most of us, it’s simply the desire to be able to talk openly about the things that matter to every one of us who uses the Internet. The desire to be judged—not by our birth, not by our sex, and not by who we work for—but by what we say. Pseudonyms are not new to the computer age. Authors use them all the time. Our founding fathers used them. Anonymous and pseudonymous speech have been part of democratic society since its beginning. What is new is that more and more strangers, whom we have never seen and never spoken to, know our names. What is new is that a name, with just a few minor pieces of information (birthdate, friends names, employer, industry, town…) can in a few seconds provide thousands of personal details about who you are and where you live.
There are good reasons that my online presence is created in the way that it is.
Returned home today to find a number of really interesting news headlines. Worthwhile reading:
When algorithms control the world (opinion piece)
Precrime that isn’t creepy and Orwellian.
“The worst-case scenario is that it doesn’t work and we’re no worse off,” said Mr. Friend, who enlisted Dr. Mohler, a professor at Santa Clara University.
No, I’m pretty sure the worst-case scenario is that innocent people are arrested for being unlucky, in the wrong place at the wrong time, and then have their civil liberties dragged through mud.
But that’s just my opinion. It might never happen, there’s no reason to act as if it definitely will happen.
The coins, which will be released 22 June, are designed in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Mint building in Utrecht, according to PSFK. Scanning the QR codes on them will link you to a commemorative coin website.
Google+ is real-life sharing rethought for the web. We’ve got 500 invites to share.
And here I was, commenting about how much I would love an invite (well, sort of..):
I keep reading these fantastic things about it, and seeing lovely video clips and pictures, and yet I feel stuck in the cold without an invite.
Of course, this will be interpreted as fishing for an invite (:P), but it really does look like something that a lot of thought has been put into and has great potential.
I was one of the unfortunate, awkward victims of Buzz, and I’ve been somewhat dubious of Google’s forays into social media. Despite this, I can’t see how they might go wrong with +… unless they arbitrarily decide to post everybody’s personal information, checkin history, emails, search history and other private data to their Google+ profile, and then remove all privacy settings. Have fun trying to explain that to your boss/spouse/kids…
I can only hope they’ve learnt their lesson from Buzz.
Are they still available? I’d love to give Google+ a spin.
