What's the opposite of a shortcut?
Last week I had an experience somewhat similar to the situation outlined in "Master the Basics and Feel the Power," a post on the Subversive Copy Editor's blog. It was more about using auto-fill in the "To" field of Outlook, but the same principle applied: Shortcuts! Learn them! Love them!
Now I just wish that there was a macro I could run to do all of my actual work. Some stuff that was on hold/the back burner has just been bumped up several priority levels. I'm still taking an extra-long weekend, though: I just have to make it through Tuesday & Wednesday, and then it's off to Athens. Woo hoo!
