      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

Can you have 2 different versions of office on one PC?

I recently ordered a laptop with Vista but had to get office 2002/XP for my work compatibility. Email doesn't work very good and is not supported on Vista. SO can one have a 2007 office product and a XP office product on the same PC?

The only product that would need to be backwards compatible is Access. Would 2007 save files as 2000/2002 for others to use on the XP enviornments?

I presume so.

I have Office 2003 full suite at work along with an Access 97 install for some old databases I work with.

Here at home, Access 2007 gives me the ability to save as Access 2007, Access 2002-2003, or Access 2000.

What I've found with the newer versions is that they may save as the older version, but some of the newer features may not be backwards compatible.

Also, you can download a patch for the older, but not too old, Office systems that allow you to open the Office 2007 stuff.

If i would just upgrade, that would be cheaper?

So if I got the regular 2007 upgrade with email, word, excel and what ever the basic comes with. Would that leave my Access alone during the upgrade from my proffessional 2002 version?

Just looking at the least expensive way to go about it.

Office 2007 is very different from 2003 and XP/2002. You will need to learn to do most everything over again, nothing is in the same places.

You can save your apps as older version, but if a feature wasn't there on the older app it won't be on the saved as version.

If you install a version of Office that doesn't have Access bundled in your old version will remain. We have done stuff similar in the past.

If your only issues is email and not calendaring, try the Thunderbird client from Mozilla. I have Outlook on my home PC but would rather use Thunderbird myself.

    • Them gun safe's ain't filling themselves I thought we all already had one.    
    • Yes, I know that. But the squirrel tail is the best material for jigs. My intent was to let you know the PREFERRED material for tying. It would also be the PREFERRED material for tying jigs. Marabou would also make dynamite jigs but would not be as durable.
    • The one I have only runs when the furnace is on.  In the summer I turn off the water that goes to it and turn down the humidistat.  There are no moving parts in mine.  In the winter a solenoid opens the water line and water trickles over a filter like thing.  Unless your rig is really old I suspect it works about the same way.  Be sure to keep the humidity in the house to the proper level.  You can get all sorts of guidance on line.
    • I was thinking more about the hair jigs.  
    • Generally fly tiers much prefer squirrel tail hair.  There are several long standing patterns that use squirrel but  I don't recall ever hearing anybody talk about raccoon tails. The body fur might be useful as dubbing material but there are too many other options to make it worth the trouble.  I doubt anybody would find possum fur of value as a fly tying material,   but then I'm no expert. And I know nothing about making spinning lures and have never sold a pelt to any fishing tackle company.  Squirrels are my pals.
    • I have hardwood in my new house and a drum style house humidifier - does the humidifier only run when the heat (furnace) is on. And if thats the case how do you run the humidifier in summer if its always going to be hot enough to not require the furnace to run?
    •    The electric choke dose not open and close according to engine temp.    The electric choke starts to warm up when you turn the ignition key on.  If you leave the key on but don't start the engine the choke will continue to warm and eventual open.  So a normal cold start with any carb regardless of choke type is to pump the peddle to get a shot of fuel from the accelerator pump.   If you had an automatic choke that peddle pump would set the choke too.   Now crank over the engine. If your electric choke is open before you've put power to it it'll need to be adjusted.  Loosen the set screws at the round black cap and rotate the cap till the choke closes.  Snug the screws back up.   Chances are you'll have to go back and fine tune this along with the high idle speed.     I'm sure you can find that procedure on the net somewhere.      The miss and cut out at higher RPMs could be a lot of things but could be related to the choke and specifically a choke butterfly closing by the increased vacuum.  Thats contrary to a choke being pulled open by vacuum but I've seen it happen when the choke isn't right when under load and vacuum drops with throttle butterflies wide open.    At any rate adjust the choke to fix the cold start issue and that might clear up the cut out.   If your still bogging, wire the choke open after the engine has warmed and try it under load.
