ASTD TechKnowledge 2009

I'm attending the ASTD TechKnowledge conference and expo. It's all about training and learning technology. Lots of great information that I hope to share and implement when I return. Hate to leave, it's in the sixties here and WARM! I'm in Las Vegas. Oh well, I didn't get enough sledding done, so I'll have to go home for the snow.

I can save money and energy? Count me in!

Just got a note from our Chancellor, Harvey Perlman, about saving energy. I know this has nothing to do with Microsoft Office, but I'm guilty of the same thing as our Chancellor. I'll turn off my computer, but leave both monitors on and other things plugged in. I, too, will try to make a more concerted effort to turn it all off to save electricity. View this video by Jerry Hudgins, a professor of electrical engineering at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln for more great tips. N The Know - How can I cut energy costs on a tight budget?

Word 2007: Removing Comments and Changes from a Document

Here’s one I hear all the time. How do I send a Microsoft Office Word document without the comments or tracked changes? Document Inspector eliminates this worry.
  1. Click the Office icon, point to Prepare, and then click Inspect Document.
  2. By default, all check boxes are selected in Document Inspector. Clear the check box next to any items that you don't want Document Inspector to look for, and then click Inspect.
  3. Remove items not for publication. Document Inspector indicates what it finds in your document, so you can choose what you want to remove, and then confidently publish your document.
