...that the nice little feature in Word 2000 that allows you to Autosave every x number of minutes is a freakin' PLUG IN for Excel 2000? Further, not only do they get configured separately (counter to my notions of how MS programmed Office - maybe I got that from Office XP or something), but they get INSTALLED separately.


So Monday mornin' I'll have to redo that 45 minutes or so worth of work that disappeared when my system crashed. Hopefully I'll be able to get the install CD for that feature first...

*sigh*

I just called and closed my Best Buy and Good Guys cards. That's roughly $5,000 credit I whacked away.

The Circuit City card took a little more effort, as the card itself didn't have a phone number on it. Had to find a statement. But this one was more important than the other two, as I use it occasionally. Anyway, I tracked down the number and made the call. Incidentally, this and Good Guys both gave me a little trouble when I was trying to track down a human. Little tip - the automated systems can't take change of address forms, so that's the way to get hold of one. Anyway, I'm 12 minutes late - they're closed. I'll have to get that $1,200 gone on Monday.

If I ever decide to make interest-free purchases at any of these places, I can always re-open. But I don't see that happening in the immediate future.
