Thanks to Gizmodo, I can now see the brilliant new Google interface. Seems to work extremely well.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t affect GMail either – I can’t wait to get my eyes on that new theme!

Word 2003 – Elusive White Space

November 19th, 2009 No comments

Oh thank fuck for that!

For a while, I’ve had a problem with Word 2oo3. Whenever I started a new document based on the Normal Template, I could see the vertical ruler, but I could not see the margins at the top and the bottom of the page. This meant that whenever I typed anything, the text appeared at the very top of the page. If I clicked the ruler, and tried to drag the margins, nothing happened.

Today, I had to write a new document, and it needed to look professional, so I decided that I needed to fix it. The Microsoft Office website was a heap of crap, so I Googled it and quite quickly came across the following page:

Elusive White Space.

A quick click at the bottom of the page resolved the issue for me!

Turns out, I hadn’t buggered up my template, Word was doing that by design. Genius……

Hell yeah!

iPlayer HD on my Freesat HD Box. Sooooo want this to be good……

BBC iPlayer to hit Freesat boxes by month’s end • Register Hardware.

Now need to go home and work out the best way to plug my Freesat HD box into my network. A switch near the network wall socket makes sense, then I can hook up my Blu-Ray player too. That’ll be MythTV box, Freesat HD box and Blu-Ray player on the same switch.
