I like the Ribbon. I’ve liked it since Office 2007 and I still find it useful. A lot of third-party apps have started using a similar interface concept. It works in Office, but it seems like it doesn’t work as well elsewhere. Foxit Reader recently added a new Ribbon-like interface. It’s easy enough to change, though:
Just go to File->Change Toolbar Mode, If you want to switch it back, go to VIew->UI Options->Change Toolbar Mode.
You can also still hide the ad at the top, but the location to do it has changed. Now you have to uncheck the “Show Advertisement” box in File (or Edit if the Ribbon is turned off)->Preferences->General.
The [sic] that you sometimes see in quotes means that it was an error by the original author, and not one introduced by the quoter. But it doesn’t stand for anything. It’s not an acronym. It’s actually a Latin word meaning “thus”.
And the Virginia state motto is “Sic semper tyrannis,” or “Thus always to tyrants.”
Just a cool connection there.
I’m a huge nerd, so a lot of my time online is spent browsing technology news and learning about computer stuff. These are some of the sites I use for that.
- The Old New Thing – from a Microsoft employee
- WinSuperSite – I consider this less of a news site because I like to browse the archives–lots of screenshots
- Toastytech.com/guis – One of the first sites I discovered like the above. It made me realize that I enjoyed computer history
- HuguesJohnson – video game catalog scans
- GameInformer Replay – Mini “let’s plays” of older games, with funny commentary
