  1. Reading and Writing Office 2007 Files in Office 2000, XP, and 2003

    by , 04-27-2007 at 02:55 PM (JDMurray's Blog at www.TechExams.Net)
    The programs of Microsoft Office 2007 are capable of reading files created by all previous versions Microsoft Office and even earlier releases. For example, Word 2007 can read .doc files created by any version of Word from 1.0 to 2003.

  2. Xbox 360: Three red lights flash on the Ring of Light

    by , 04-25-2007 at 02:53 PM (JDMurray's Blog at www.TechExams.Net)
    There has been a lot blogged about the apparent hardware problems with the Xbox 360. I don't own an Xbox 360 (I'm strictly a PC gamer), but I have many friends that own and love their 360, and none of them has had more than the occasional crash (these are mostly due to software problems in the game).

  4. Have a Spare PC? Ubuntu it!

    by , 04-18-2007 at 07:55 PM (JDMurray's Blog at www.TechExams.Net)
    I have a lot of inactive PCs in my house. They include several Pentium and Pentium III workstations, a dual-180MHz CPU Pentium Pro server, and even a Winbook 486 laptop (fondly known as “the brick that ate my data”). The oldest in my collection is an 80386 motherboard with 4MB of RAM that I bought “at cost” for $800US back in 1989 (retail was $1200US) from a place called Beaver Computers somewhere in Oregon. My oldest machines, a Heath/Zenith Z-89A (1983), a Radio Shack (Tandy) TRS-80 Model 1 (1984), ...
