As of 2013, January, I am certified as a Microsoft Office 2010 Master Specialist.
This means I can offer assistance on a wide variety of issues working with Microsoft Office 2010 applications: Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook, and Access (whew!).

The class was first offered through the Tamalpais Union School District Adult and Community Education Department in 2003, November, and 2004, January. This version of the presentation was created for the class originally scheduled on 2006, March 1st & 8th.

DISCLAIMER: Please note that as of 2006, March, I no longer participate in any online dating forums (UPDATE: Gretchen and I have been a couple since 2015, February 8th--YAAAAY!!!--and we were MARRIED on 2016, May 12th--Quarduple YAAAAY!!!), inasmuch as I finally realized they were not working for me. Still (if I do say so myself), this is a pretty good presentation. Your milage may (and most probably will) vary.
