Then I definately need some TLC from the Nuts team! I teach computing to U3A (Some of you may know of this massive group being of or above the admissable age) it's the University of the 3rd Age (you have to be 50 to join)
SWMBO wants to join but the two in our area don't seem to have choices of interest to me.
I think I am up to being able to use Word 2003 at 80%, 2007 at 40% (I need to buy the license as my free trial has run out argh!) A word to all who are used to word up to 2003 version - the 2007 version is radivally different, but oh so much easier to understand and use - you inset a table and the toolbars all change to things applicable to tables - colours, outlines, formatting etc.....
When SWMBO was PA to the head of IT for a large American group near home she usewd to get legal copies of all the major WP software tht they were considering and I had a licensed copy of what we ised in the office; my PC at times had 5 different such (programs at the same time mainly for evaluation.
Having been retired for 9 years I simply haven't bothered to update - this PC has Word 97 as part of Office 97. It does its job so why change it? I think in the UK we probably have Word 2003 or so on her machine and I'm not sure what is on mine.
As for the other problem, try searching around in "Dealing with Debt" under
This is a huge site about all sorts of financial affairs from personal debt problems**, tax, insurance to investment - in about 8 years I haven't found everything so you have plenty to look at as you lie there snug as a bug in a rug. (You may have to register but it is free and you decide if you want any emails or not)
** when he posts Carmensfella is worth reading)
I actually wrote a reply to this at mid day and the board hung!! So I lost the data I had written - and it is now very late and I want to go to sleep!!! So
1: who/what is SWMBO?? I am normally quite good at TLA - but this one has me puzzled
2: Finacial aid is only available to those who work - and if you work, then you have less debts, and amazingly the governemt will wipe out up to 75% of your debt IF YOU ARE WORKING.... My problem is I am UNABLE to WORK, and therefore I get no government assistance with my debts, so I am stuffed! Surely this is the wrong way around??? Anyhow - the debt is of my own making, I created it so I must suffer through it and sort it out. It will pass in time...
3: I started last September teaching various parts of Word 2003 - we are still finding new things!! However, 2007 Office IS FANTASTIC!! Yes there are a heap of changes, but when you do something like insert a picture, it then changes all the toolbars to everything to might want to do with your picture - 3D effect, shadow, colour frame, type of frame, format, size, everything you could need is there. When you insert a table you get the same - everything you could ever want to do with a table is there and as you scroll down it changes your table so you get to see the changes as you go...
No I am not paid by Microsoft - although I did a heap of beta testing for 3.1 and office 95 - a LONG time ago now!!!
