opening excel in separate windows

Use the File Association Settings
You have to tell Excel not to use DDE to open the worksheet. Open Windows Explorer, Tools, Options, File Types Scroll down to XLS Select Advance Button Click on OPEN in the Actions window, Then Edit On the 2nd line for application used add "%1". Make sure to put the quotes around %1. Example ...\Excel.exe" /e "%1" Write down what you see in the DDE Section. You will need this information if you want to return to the original settings. Now DeSelect Use DDE When you double click on any XLS file a separate instance of excel will run. Another advantage is that you can open more than one XLS file with the same name.

"life without walls" is the new ms slogan.
i somehow got a thought in my mind i thought i should share.
im thinking ms has decided to make their next os open-source or semi open source.
it would make perfect sense since there is a major change in the way ms work now. gates is retired. he's in a sort of a evangelist role. the new lead team have a new approach. they will try to coalition with linux and other open source vendors. they see the approaching threat of apple and are getting ready to counter it. the windows 7 blog is a lot more user friendly. its approach is what brought me into this direction.
you read it here first.

one of my most favrtite sites

The #include directive causes a copy of a specified file to be included in the place of the directive. The two forms of the #include directive are:
  • #include <filename>
  • #include "filename"
The difference between these two is the location the preprocessor searches for the file to be included. If the file name is enclosed in quotes, the preprocessor searches in the same directory as the file being compiled for the file to be included. This method is normally used to include programmer defined headers. If the file name is enclosed in brackets - used for standard library headers - the search is performed in an implementation dependent manner, normally through predesignated directories.

Premise Corporation and Stryker Medical Announce Strategic Alliance in Collaboration with Microsoft

Premise Corporation and Stryker Medical Announce Strategic Alliance in Collaboration with Microsoft

Companies to launch iBed™ platform and other software solutions to improve patient flow, caregiver communication and quality of care with release of next generation patient safety solution.

Stryker Medical, a division of Stryker Corporation (NYSE: SYK), and Premise Corporation, the leading provider of clinically-focused solutions to optimize patient flow, today announced a strategic partnership to develop and promote communication solutions to support clinical and nursing efficiencies for leading hospitals.

In particular, the companies will draw upon their core competencies – for Premise, optimizing patient flow via workflow automation and hospital-wide communication; and for Stryker, providing intelligent beds to help ensure patient safety and high quality care both at the bedside and beyond. Collaborating with the Microsoft Corp. and working with the Microsoft technology platform, Stryker and Premise will streamline the communication process of patient information through Stryker’s Connected Hospital® strategy that provides multiple levels of connectivity: 1) More informed care at the bedside; 2) Optimized communication to the nurse station; 3) Connecting caregivers throughout the hospital.

“Microsoft’s mission is to improve health around the world. We recognize that patient safety solutions are a critical industry need,” said Chris Sullivan, U.S. health industry solutions director, Microsoft Corp. “Built on Microsoft’s familiar, easy-to-use and widely supported software platform, Premise and Stryker’s iBed Awareness Dashboard solution takes patient safety to the next level, and we’re pleased to work with such innovative companies.”

In January 2007, Stryker Medical launched its exclusive iBed platform. As an integrated or standalone solution, Stryker iBed and Premise Care Management will provide clinicians with the highest level of knowledge, communication and workflow automation around the patient care process at the bedside and beyond. iBed will further enhance clinical knowledge, patient safety, communication and decision-making – unlocking the abundance of bed- and patient-centric data without the burdensome task of data entry. Today, there’s no practical way to conveniently access this useful and rich data. By making this data both available and contextual to care delivery activities, iBed will help improve the timeliness and quality of care while providing a more informed and less chaotic caregiver environment.

The Stryker iBed Dashboard further extends the recently announced Premise Care Management Solution that is being developed collaboratively with Microsoft Corp.’s MS-ISV (Independent Software Vendors) Group. Premise was a 2007 winner of the MS-HUG Innovation Award and is currently a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner. This relationship provides Premise and Stryker access to Microsoft’s latest technology innovations, development and architecture expertise, as well as use of Microsoft Technology Centers.

“Premise’s mission has always been to help hospitals achieve optimal patient flow, which is about much more than patient placement and bed turnover. The Premise-Stryker partnership couples proven technology with flexible options for improving flow, increasing patient safety and creating a more efficient care environment both at the bedside and hospital-wide,” states Premise Chairman and CEO, Eric Rosow. “As our clients use the integrated iBed platform, integrate with Real Time Location Systems, or use the Premise Patient Flow Platform in a myriad of other ways to meet their patient flow objectives, we’re pleased to provide customized solutions that create a higher quality, more efficient care environment that benefits both clinicians and patients.”

In addition to the iBed Platform, the partnership will also yield other solutions to improve communication, quality of care and patient flow. Utilizing Stryker’s expertise in advanced smart bed technology, combined with Premise’s proficiency in optimizing workflow and Microsoft’s knowledge of integrating software solutions, the companies aim to design an end-to-end solution that leverages disparate information to help improve caregiver efficiency and patient outcomes.
