An Uplifting Read

"...And here's the deal: Forget that this task of planet-saving is not possible in the time required. Don't be put off by people who know what is not possible. Do what needs to be done, and check to see if it was impossible only after you are done."

The above is an excerpt from Paul Hawken's 2009 commencement address to the University of Portland. The full speech can be found here:

MSWord: losing the underline that won't go away

Today I offer a handy MSWord tip. So: you're in MSWord and you hit the underscore key a few times in a row to create a handy break only a few characters wide, but the program imposes a big black horizontal line.

You try to delete the big black line but it is impervious to every effort. How do you get rid of that dagnabbid thing?!

Here's how:

Go to: Format> reveal formatting > seek, "Borders: Bottom" select "none"

Et non voila!

Instant Karma

I've been meaning to point out the little irony that some bank is using this tune for a credit card ad campaign right now.

"Instant Karma's gonna get you
Gonna knock you off your feet
Better recognize your brother's
Everyone you meet."
