“Magic Fields”, Microsoft Word Help

Recently, I have been helping ICQ with internal support tasks.  One such task involves the templates we will be using in the course of client project work, to standardize our communications.  Many of the templates have a field to populate the document number, and when I clicked on it to check the font properties, a box appeared around the placeholder number, and a tiny “Keyword” appeared in an even smaller grey box above it.   This field is tied to the same document number field in the footer, and when one of those fields is populated, the linked field follows suit.  I was intrigued.  As I studied the templates, I noticed other places where information was repeated, and I thought, “If we used more of these in our documents, the form becomes more user-friendly, AND the potential for inconsistencies is eliminated.”  Once I had administrative buy-in, I dug into the Word tutorials and learned how to implement the fields.  If you’re thinking “How can *I* add this to my document generation skill set?”, follow me!

ICQ Adds Facebook Chat Users to Its Chat List

Remember ICQ? Back in the late 1990s, it was the chat service that most of us used, with each person identified not by a chosen handle, but by an assigned five-digit number. But after AOL bought the service, a lot of the users went on to other chat clients: AOL’s own AIM, MSN Chat, Skype, Gtalk and many others.

In February, we reported that AIM had added Facebook Chat to its supported services, but ICQ actually quietly beat its partner in crime (AOL owns both) to the punch in some sense, having released ICQ 7 back in January with Facebook support. That included a way to do status updates, although Chat has only gone live today.

Encrypted chats through Adium

I discovered Adium many years ago and loved it instantly. Instead of having MSN Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, iChat and Facebook windows all over the place, it allowed me to combine all of it in one single app. That’s the main reason I used it and could care less about skins, sounds, icons and plugins. This was also long before I became concerned with privacy and security, I didn’t think about the fact that the MSN, Yahoo, Facebook and iChat servers were all located abroad and did not know about governments and agencies spying on us. Now I know better. I’ve spent a long time looking for good ways to secure my communications and never thought to look at the tools I already had. Then I accidentally stumbled onto Adium’s OTR encryption feature and have been using it ever since. OTR stands for Off-the-Record and is a cryptographic protocol that provides strong encryption for instant messaging (IM) conversations. OTR uses a combination of different encryption algorithms, perfect forward secrecy (PFS) and deniable encryption. Sounds good right? It is. And thanks to Adium you have this encryption right at your fingertips. OTR is not limited to Adium, other clients use it too but for OS X I’ve found Adium to be the best (and almost only) available option. There is a lot of material out there that allows you to learn more about OTR and it’s really interesting.
