How do I search in JSTOR? (link)

The opening Advanced Search page presents 4 options for searching through the full text of all articles. You can change one or more these options to search through authors' names, words in article titles, words in article abstracts, or words in captions. To search for forms of a word, use an asterisk (*) to substitute for missing letters.
Example: modern* finds modern, modernism, moderns, modernistic, etc.
To find articles containing two or more words, connect the search terms with AND.
Example: terror* AND nationalis*
To search for a multi-word phrase, enclose search terms in quotation marks.
Example: "vernacular architecture"

How are the results from a KnoWLedgebase search sorted? (link)

Your search phrase is compared to a list of trivial words, which are dropped.

The remaining words are compared to a list of key words, defined within the KB system.  They are also compared to the list of non-trivial words for each question in the KB database.

A score is calculated using the following equation:

score = 70% * (# matched key words from your search) / (total # key words for that KB question) + 30% * (# matched question words from your search) / (# non-trivial question words in that KB entry)

The matching KB entries are then displayed, sorted in the following order:

  1. score, descending
  2. # matched key words, descending
  3. # matched question words, descending

Inking in PowerPoint 2007's Presenter View to Display Results on the Projector (Problem: How to stop slides from advancing when inking during a presentation) (link)

On PowerPoint 2007, Presenter View is an option under the Slide Show menu. Check the "Use Presenter View" box to enable it.

Presenter View expects your computer to be connected to a projector (or external monitor) where the projector is enabled as an extended desktop. This mode doesn't work if the external display mirrors the laptop display. When giving a presentation, the laptop/tablet's screen shows a small window of the slide content, navigation controls, and notes. The external or projected screen shows the full slide without the notes or navigation.

Enabled in PowerPoint 2007 is a button to ink on the current slide and have the results displayed on the external projector. However, when I tried this it kept advancing to the next slide after inking a stroke. I finally figured out how to work around this problem - select all the slides under "Animations", and disable "On Mouse Click" under "Advance Slide." Of course you can no longer click to advance, but that's not relevant when you have the navigation controls of Presenter View. One other hint: I have to click "apply to all slides" after unchecking "advance on mouse click" in order to get it to stop.

Unfortunately, Presenter View doesn't show mouse movements, so I would have to actually highlight the thing I'm referring to or draw a line to it or something.
