Review by Benjamin Woolley for Office 2008 for Mac, Home and Student Edition (3 User Edition) (Mac)</a> Rating: After years with PCs, I fanlliy migrated to the Mac this Christmas. The whole experience has been remarkably painless. Everything worked, the software is for the most part beautifully designed, and I felt I had found a comfortable new home. Then I got Office 2008 Home and Student Edition, principally for Word and Entourage, so I could access all my Office 2007 files and found myself back in the Windows world.Word 2008 looks pretty, but is flaky. It sometimes freezes, and there’s an odd problem with the document window sometimes refusing to overlay other windows that are open on the desktop. Also, the interface is different from Office 2003 and 2007, and in my opinion not as good.Maybe I’ll get used to these foibles, but the instability of the software is worrying. Worse, Office 2008 isn’t fully compatible with Office 2007. Word will read documents written using earlier versions. But Entourage does not read Outlook pst files AT ALL. Migrating Outlook to Entourage is awkward to impossible without making big compromises and wasting lots of time and effort. Microsoft created an add-on for Entourage 2004 that apparently works with Outlook 2001 pst files, but there’s no information from Microsoft on converting Outlook 2003 or 2007 files. There are other solutions for converting pst files, but I can find none that are simple and seamless (or free). And once they’re in Entourage format, I notice that there’s no way of exporting them to other email programs.To add to the sense of a fundamental misfit between Microsoft and Apple, Microsoft’s support pages for mac don’t seem to work with Safari (but do with Firefox). In retrospect, I wish I hadn’t tried this half-way house between the Windows and Mac worlds, but just started afresh.
Didn’t Lenhart have some shady eentvs going on while in office? I vaguely remember that a husband of a woman who worked at the Sheriff’s office threatening to commit suicide because his wife was having an affair. The husband allegedly drove around with a loaded gun. Surrounding law enforcement was never notified but the man was pulled over by another local patrolman. Lenhart personally went to where the man was, drove him back to Shelby County while another Sheriff employee drove the man’s car back. This all came to light by the patrolman’s law enforcement officials since the patrolman’s life was put in jeopardy from lack of Lenhart notifying other local law enforcement. Who does this? Plus get a personal escort back. I’m not saying there wasn’t, I could have missed it but you would think the man would have been charged with inducing panic. It all seemed hush hushed to me! We haven’t had a decent Sheriff since Mark Schemmal retired. I know that there are some good people at the Sheriff’s Office but they are limited to what they can do. The rest are all related to Bob Hope. They are No Hope, Beyond Hope, Careless Hope, etc. and least of all Crooked Hope (Lenhart)! It is what it is, everyone needs to wake up and smell the coffee!
Well I try AQ Worlds, Guilds of Heroes, DragonFable, BattleOn, Cabal, Guildwars(well not ralely free, need to buy the game but its cheap on Ebay), gpotato games they’re fun/FlyFF etc, MapleStory!, Aeria Games, or maybe just try good MMO’s in google lawl!
Crap! I love that story. And I love your doovtien to Mary and your Apple.I am so slowly getting used to mine and there are days when I can’t stand it after having used a PC exclusively before now. Stories like this make me want to fall in love with my MacBook. I’ll keep trying, and maybe this time I’ll ask Mary to help me.
