Wishing for Spring
Welcome and greetings from ETCS. As Spring is just
around the corner, we have a number of things for your consideration
that we hope you will find useful. None of them of course have anything
to do with Spring, but a little wishful thinking can't help but lighten
your reading mood, enjoy.
This month we have 3 articles from Joe Lear. He
has advice to offer about using the new security package from Microsoft
called Forefront. You will also get information about how to use Office
Communicator for instant messaging and voice over the computer. This is
where it's possible to save money in your communication budget, allowing
you to use the Web for communications in place of a quick phone
conversation. Joe also gives us some tips about stretching the charge
times on our lap top batteries.
Charlie Baerwald provides an update on how the R:
drive synchronization works with the laptop computers. Undoubtedly many
of you already make good use of this feature, but we thought an update
wouldn't hurt. Some of you have been encountering problems with your
sound when trying to use Adobe Connect, or just after participating in
an Adobe event. Charlie has a tip that may help.
You'll hear from me on three topics this month. In
the past some of you have asked about converting PDF files back to Word
documentsówell, contrary to what I've said in the past, it is possible,
and easy. In addition I have an update about Adobe Connect with a link
to a scheduling form if you'd like to try an event on Adobe Connect.
If you've ever heard the term "Web 2.0" and
wondered what it meant, or wanted to learn more, I have an article
touching on the subject with a link to more in-depth information. Look
for articles from us in the future that explore Web 2.0 applications and
how you might use them in your work with Extension.
