Current Issue (Issue 125)

Thought of the Week:- "Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it."
Moregroupware:- http://moregroupware.sourceforge.net Open Source (1.8 MB). Platform Independent.

Moregroupware is a suite of applications based on the scripting language PHP. It is a web-based groupware application that contains several applications like web e-mail, file manager, shared calendar, notes module, ToDo list, HeadLines and forums. The software can also be used as Project management Software. It supports Creating and Editing Projects, GANTT Diagram and Time spent on projects etc. The features of the software are -


Full-featured Calendar

ToDo management


Project management

Some preferences for each module

Skins based on Cascading Style Sheets

If someone wants to test the system without installing it, there are 2 options. They can try the web based demo or use the bootable Linux CD image that contains moregroupware which can be downloaded for free (http://moregroupware.sourceforge.net/knoppix.php). This is done by using Knoppix (I have covered Knoppix in Issue 78 dated 17/12/2002).


Site of the Week:- http://www.leidenuniv.nl/ub/biv/specials.htm

This is a very long page having the collection of links to special search engines and searchable directories. This is a comprehensive page where one can find the links for virtually any topic. It covers General finding Tools; Reference Tools; Experts; Personal Search Agents; Search Engines and their codes; Bookmarks Manager and Subject category wise links.

Tip of the Week:- MS Word - Print multiple pages on one sheet.

If you regularly print large documents or send printed copies of them through the mail, you can save on both paper and postage by using Word's Zoom feature. With Zoom, one can print as many as 16 pages on a single sheet of paper. Printing multiple pages on one sheet also makes it easier to check your document's page layout, such as odd and even page headers and footers in a 200-page document.

Follow these steps to print four pages to a sheet:

Go to File | Print.

In the Zoom section, select 4 Pages from the Pages Per Sheet drop-down list.

Make any other print selections, and click OK.

Zoom automatically reduces the scale to fit four pages on each sheet. Zoom reduces the size of the printout without changing the document's format or page layout settings.

That's all for this week. See you next week.
