Microsoft Word is a commercial document editing program that is part of the Microsoft Office suite. It features numerous text-editing tools for creating richly formatted documents, along with tools for the use of macros in Word documents. Word's native file formats are denoted either by a .doc or .docx file extension. Plugins permitting the Windows versions of Word to read and write formats it does not natively support, such as the OpenDocument format (ODF) are available. Word can import and display images in common bitmap formats such as JPG and GIF. It can also be used to create and display simple line-art.

Hello, I'm new to Sharepoint and I'm working with the 2013 free version. I'm trying to set up some simple document libraries and enable searching on them. I have search enabled, and a handful of documents loaded however when I try to do a search on a word in the title of one of the documents, I get the 'Nothing matches your search' page. I did spend about 20 hours reviewing every setting, and researching on the net about how to get this to work. The crawl service is set to auto start on the server and I've tried doing a simple search daily since I started work on this last week but so far I'm stumped. Any input would be appreciated (however don't get alarmed if I don't reply as I'm going on vacation later this week and won't be back until 2/19). Thanks in advance!

This is a recent tech related issue that happened to someone I know.  A scam unfortunately and the hacker took advantage of a very fragile situation too.  Its amazing at what lengths hackers will go to take advantage of a person during their plight.

A friend of mine lost their dog so they made a post on Facebook about that and if anyone could help them find their missing dog.  They put their email and phone number out there in that post.  Their post was shared numerous times.  A few weeks went by and someone contacted them saying they found their dog.  My friend was very excited to hear the news and asked how they can get in touch.  The person said they need to verify my friend really owns the dog and asked them for the security code that was just sent to their phone.  Not thinking of anything other than having a chance to see their loyal friend again, they provided the security code that was sent to their phone to this stranger.

Boom.  Their email was hacked.

Guard your phone number and email folks.  Facebook is a new way to spread the word and get some traction for things we need urgency on, but displaying private information publicly, even in dire situations, can bite you in the butt.  Even if a person who is friends with you on Facebook prods for private information you have to guard yourself and consider if they've even been hacked and someone is posing as them.

It happens and it sucks.  Many of us here probably wouldn't fall for something like this, but …

what use the PIN number would be without the physical card?

Scammers probably already have the card number. It is possible to make a new card, so once they have the PIN they can do whatever they want just like they had the real card. Fortunately the new chip enabled cars make this scam more difficult.

Need a report button for bad sales call attempts.

Just had an interesting sales call.  Well, there wasn't any call per se.  The phone rang and the caller ID was for a website.  When I answered, all that was playing was music and no person on the other end.  Annoying, right?  I hung up, looked up the website and found out it was a cloud VoIP website.  As soon as I went to the website a chat window popped up welcoming me.  Ugh.

Not sure if clever sales attempt phone call or rude way of luring me to their website.  I'm feeling the latter and also feeling taken advantage of.  I want to report this deceitful attempt at a sales call, but don't know if that's a thing?  If I mention the name then I also feel I'm spreading the word for them for free.

Fortunately, I bet the people dealing with things like this complaint system might actually be the ones likely to care ;-)

For example: in the past I had great success with the FCC's Do Not Call list (Which I honestly wasn't expecting to work, but it absolutely did! I had needed to get a landline, and as soon as I did, it got a ton of daily telemarketing calls. Soon after adding the number to the DNC list, the calls dropped to nothing. The system worked!)

Nice.  In retrospect, I am just being bitter about it haha.  Just like we at EE do need data, I'm sure FCC needs the data as well to look upon and see 'do we deal with this now?  Is it a large or small problem?' :)  Who knows maybe they've already been reported or maybe I'm the first!

Cloud Class® Course: Amazon Web Services - Basic

Are you thinking about creating an Amazon Web Services account for your business? Not sure where to start? In this course you’ll get an overview of the history of AWS and take a tour of their user interface.

Anyone else find it amusingly ironic that the spell check software in my browser doesn't recognize the word driverless?

Personally, I'm just avoiding opening any Word docs from anyone I don't know... And to some extent, even from people I do know... Most of my document usage these days is with Google Docs, so it's pretty rare that I need a Word doc!
