Visit their site at www.alandaletraining.com. Subscriber asks 'How do you get rid of that "paste" drop-down box that automatically appears and doesn't want to go away!' In recent versions of Microsoft Office, when you paste text into a document the Paste Options graphic appears below and to the right of the text you pasted. Click on it and you can choose Keep Source Formatting, Merge Formatting or Plain Text. It provides a handy way of controlling the formatting of the pasted text. Yet it can also hide some of the text in your document and it doesn't go away even after you have chosen one of the three options. (You may not be happy with the outcome of the option you chose so it's easy to pick another option). So how do you make it disappear? Just press Esc.

This Month in Tech History All tech history information is found on the Software & Information Industry Association June 8, 1955 – Tim Berners-Lee was born. Sir Timothy John Berners-Lee is credited with inventing the World Wide Web. While working at CERN in 1989, he proposed a project, based on the concept of hypertext, to facilitate sharing and updating information among researchers. On Christmas Day 1990, he implemented the first successful communication between an HTTP client and server via the Internet. The first Web site built was at CERN and was first put online on August 6, 1991 June 25, 1979 – The first National Educational Computing Conference was held in June 25- 27, 1979 in Iowa City. The conference was created to replace the tenth Conference on Computers in Undergraduate Curricula, (CCUC) in an effort to expand the scope of information covered. The first conference was chaired by Ted Sjoerdsma and covered a hardware debate: on micros vs. minicomputers, the development of educational software: CAI, CMI, simulations for subject specific uses (math, science, social sciences, health, engineering) and defining teacher competencies for pre-service, in-service training.
