Just another bunch of stuff pouring out of some guy's head

Word 2007, where’s the Organizer?

I occasionally develop macros in Word and having recently switched to Office 2007 (and a new computer) I initially found myself unable to move macros across from my old machine. Here’s how. (more…)

I’ve lost my Twittin’ mind
