IT Security Tip
Email is more like a postcard than a sealed envelope. Do not send sensitive data within an email message, for it could be intercepted by hackers or others with bad intentions.

IT Tip
In almost every application, you can type Ctrl-F (F for Find) to find a word or series of characters. Ctrl-F works in Microsoft Word and Excel, all major Web browsers, Notepad and many other applications.

IT Sustainability Tip
Screen savers do not save energy.
