Tabbed Browsing

Do you get overwhelmed by the number of windows you open up in your web browser? Using tabs can keep things more manageable.

Of all of the changes web browsers have gone through over the years, I think the addition of tabs is the one I appreciate most. They allow me to use one window to easily flip between multiple web pages. I also love that the interface for working with tabs is so similar across all the different web browsers I use.

To use tabs in a browser:
Instead of using File→New Window or Ctrl-N (Cmd-N on a Mac) to open up a new window, use Ctrl-T (Cmd-T on a Mac) to open a new tab. Or, click on the “+” sign next to your current tab.

This opens up a blank tab, and you can use it to navigate to the page you want to view.

You can open up many tabs in a single window, and easily navigate between them by clicking on a tab to bring it to the front.

You can get rid of a tab you’re finished with by clicking on the “X” in its title.


week ending 7/23/10 3rd floor report

It has been a bit louder this week on the 3rd floor.  The new spaces are starting to take shape.  Old walls are now completely down or altered and new wall / door frames have been constructed.  A lot of the old lighting has also been removed.  The workers have been nice and considerate.  They try to let us know when we are in for a loud afternoon.

In talking to the head construction guy on site, I have learned that the construction part should be completed around August 13th.  The lab and training room computer tables and chairs are due in the following week.  As of right now, most of it seems to be on schedule and should be ready by the time students arrive!

Captain Info will be back on Monday, so I’m sure we will have a 1st floor update early in the week.  Things have really come together down there.   There are still a few things being worked on, but it looks like they are in the home stretch.

Below are some new pictures from the 3rd floor from this past week.  You can see them full size in a new window by clicking on them individually . Enjoy!

Walls, or lack there of…

We have some walls down, and we were surprised at how quietly they went.  We did not really notice.

So things are happening up on the 3rd floor.  Rooms are empty, carpet is torn up, wiring and power has been cut.  Here are some pictures documenting the progress so far.
