Posting from Word 2007

7 Mar

Just playing with Microsoft OneNote 2007 and clicked on the Blog This menu item, and it opens up Word. There are a number of blog platforms available so most people won’t be disappointed.

I put in my WordPress account details and there we go straight to a new post, which you are reading now.

Office 2007 keeps on surprising me, every day I find something new in it. I’ve mostly used Outlook which is a nice improvement on the 2003 version which I was using. The ribbon is awesome, everything is just in front of you ready to be used.

Here’s a picture of the blog post version whilst writing this post

Well done Microsoft.


Windows Apps State

11 Oct

I was lucky enough to be bought a laptop by the company I now work for. It’s great i’ve always wanted one but never had enough money to be able to buy.

The only issue I have is that I would love to be able to have an app that remembers what apps I have open when i shutdown and be able to open them when I boot back up. It would be a great help if when ever I boot my laptop then I have it exactly how I left it.

I know there is an app called Relaunch for the Mac, this looks like exactly what I am looking for. I have searched for a Windows equivalent but not found anything. Does such an app exist?

Please someone leave a comment if you have found something that does this kind of thing or if you have any other suggestions.

More on IE7 RSS

3 Oct

Following on from Yesterdays post reading RSS feeds in IE7 there should be a way to mark feeds left unread in a folder as read. I tend to like to set all my feeds as read if i’m going to ignore certain feeds.

Sometimes I just don’t want to read some feeds and it would be good to have the option.

I did try Microsoft Max to see how that fared. It looks nice and arranges the feeds and feed items in a nice way, but for some reason it doesn’t give you the option to view the whole feed item in the same window. if you click on a feed item it opens up the website in your browser. What’s he point in that? It would be much better if it opened the item within the program.

The look of Max is awesome and hopefully developers of Windows apps in the future can get their apps to look as good as it.

If anyone knows how I can get to view items within the Max window I would be grateful.

Internet Explorer 7 RSS Reading

2 Oct

I’ve started using IE7 for reading my RSS feeds.

One thing that bothers me is that i can’t get a list of unread feeds together like in FeedDemon. If you have a long list of feeds it’s nice to click on the folder they are in and see which ones still have unread items. Also the way of getting to your feeds is not ideal, I think it would be a lot better to have a seperate section that is specifically for feeds.

I know IE7 is still in Beta so i can only hope that they make some improvements to the RSS side of it.
