Still waiting for the paperless office? This is a fantastic article describing why paper might not be such a bad thing after all.

I should probably say that I am now a fully paid up member of the Radio Userland community(!). The software is working great and is a snip at US$39.95.

I finally got around to reading the XML Files article in the March issue of MSDN magazine this week. Now there wasn’t much new here (though I’m seeing an increasing number of references to XSLT as a functional programming language – I’m afraid I didn’t get that unit in my degree course so it proved to…

Thanks to the great guide, I’ve now (hopefully) got the comments feature working on this site. Only time will tell…

I finally got around to publishing my Outlook XP (2002) attachment unblocker applet that does the registry tweaking mentioned in Q290497. No fancy set-up program I'm afraid – it's only a tiny .EXE file so I just dropped it on as a .ZIP file. If you don't know how to get things out of .ZIP…

If you’re using an LCD (flat screen) display with Windows XP, then you can enable and calibrate the ClearType support at Activating ClearType (you can just enable it in the Display control…

It’s funny, isn’t it, how when you’re looking for something on the web you invariably end up following a path you never intended because something catches your attention. I’ve just seen a couple of links to tiny storage devices: http://www.thumbdrive.com/ and http://www.diskonkey.com/. I haven’t seen these before and as soon as they make one a little…
