I was thinking the other day about smartphones and how I often don't like to type on them. I'm just so used to typing on full-size keyboards, that typing on mobile is like swimming in molasses. And it's really a shame, because in so many other ways, my iPhone is incredibly convenient.
But then, I thought about how speech to text these days is pretty decent, and perhaps the best approach would be to just use Siri for dictation instead of trying to type. I've held off on such things, because I'm old enough (and had enough bad experiences with flaky computer dictation long ago) that psychologically, it feels really weird to talk to a computer.
But in this case, my computer is a phone.
And that means: I feel weird talking to a phone.
Which is kind of weird, don't you think?
What about you? Do you type on your smartphone a lot? Or do you use Siri/Cortana/Google for dictation? Does talking to your phone feel weird or is it totally normal for you?
I just discovered that Rick Fisher did indeed add 64 bit support to his Find & Replace utility!
I don't know how I missed this. It may be that someone added it later. Everyone at this point assumed he had passed as he has been un-responsive to any inquiry. But I don't remember this being available when I fist got into 64 bit.
If you have an existing license, you can download a copy here:
Under Find and Replace ver 9.0, look for the 64BitSP1 Version, download that, and use it to install F&R. I am using it with the current version of Access, and so far, no issues other than an initial warning that the version is un-supported (16). I just click through that and it works fine!
Really made my day; I don't like the current alternatives personally (guess I've been using Rick's utility too long), and it has a cross-ref ability that I find very useful at times.
