If you use ALL small type, it will be 20 pages. Seems like the thing to do, but if you must use 21 pages, you can use 17 pages of small print (40,800), and 4 pages of large print (7,200) for a total of 48,000.

I have a canon mg2520 that i purchased at walmart.when i printed some cartoon pictures that i saved from word pad theres horizontal lines on my pictures.oh please help me.


Hmm. That model doesn't have the best reputation. Even if you just got it, try running a cleaning cycle; lines across a print usually mean either a clogged jet or debris on the print head. Less often, if it's there no matter what you do, it's a defect in the print head. Canon's Service and Support Page for the MG2520: Canon Support Drivers PIXMA MG2520

Two words that contains millions of letters?


Also 'The Blah Story, Volume 10' encloses the world's longest word which contains 2,087,214 letters. The ultra long word was created using very simple algorithm. Nigel Tomm joyfully explains an algorithm of building his extra size word: "Fuse separate words together no matter how cool you think they look singly."

To clarify the algorithm lets find out how the first 25 characters of the word are created.

Firstly, Nigel Tomm takes a word "baby." The word "baby" has the last letter "y," so Tomm adds to the word "baby" a word which has the first letter "y," he chooses a word "you," and gets the word "babyou." Symbolically it can be written

baby+(y)ou= babyou.

New word "babyou" has the last letter is "u," so Tomm must add a word which begins with a letter "u," and he chooses "ubiquitous." Now, he gets a new word "babyoubiquitous." Symbolically it could be written as

baby+(y)ou+(u)biquitous= babyoubiquitous

Applying this algorithm one more time we get:

baby+(y)oubiquitous+(s)eadog= babyoubiquitouseadog

and

baby+(y)oubiquitous+(s)eadog+(g)ab= babyoubiquitouseadogab,

and

baby+(y)oubiquitous+(s)eadog+(g)ab+(b)lah= babyoubiquitouseadogablah,

and so on. This algorithm was applied to get the word which is 2,087,214 letters long and occupies 728 pages.

Other world's longest words are: methionylthreonylthreonyl...isoleucine (189,819 letters; it is largest known protein), lopado...pterygon (183 letters; it is a fictional dish mentioned in Aristophanes' comedy 'Assemblywomen'), Taumatawha...tanatahu (85 letters; it is a place name), pneumo...iosis (45 letters; it is a lung disease, this is also longest word in a major dictionary).

Excel print preview problem - the margin does not work


Be sure to apply Service pack 3 for Excel 2000.

Also, be sure to have selected the correct printer for printing before or during print preview.
An incorrectly recognized printer could cause problems.
Try reinstalling your printer driver. If your printer is a USB printer, unplug the USB, wait a moment and plug it back it (This reloads the printer driver)
More information like printer model, service pack installed for Excel2000, what exactly is the margin doing, things like that, can help me diagnose.

How to increase Virtual Memory?

In Windows XP
1.Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2.Click Performance and Maintenance, and then click System.
3.On the Advanced tab, under Performance, click Settings.
4.On the Advanced tab, under Virtual memory, click Change.
5.Under Drive [Volume Label], click the drive that contains the paging file that you want to change.
6.Under Paging file size for selected drive, click to Custom size check box. You can enter the amount of memory you would like to reserve for Virtual memory by entering the initial and maximum size.
7.Click Set
When you are prompted to restart the computer, click Yes.
Special Note: You should choose the same amount for the initial size and maximum size. This will Stop your CPU from constantly changing the paging file.

HOT TIP: To stop your CPU from constantly changing the paging file, set the initial and maximum size to the same value. For example, 500 and 500. The value should be at least 1.5 times more than your physical RAM. If your computer has 512MB of RAM increase the virtual memory paging file to 1.5*512= 768

In Vista

1. Click Start button Picture of the Start button
2. Click Control Panel
3. Choose System and Maintenance and then click System.
4. In the left pane, click Advanced system settings.
5.On the Advanced tab, under Performance, click Settings.
6. Click the Advanced tab, and then, under Virtual memory, choose Change.
7. Click Custom to change the Initial size (MB) and Maximum size. See the hot tip above.

Remember to choose the drive you would like to use to increase the virtual memory. In most cases it usually your C: Drive. You can set the initial size and maximum size after clicking the Custom size check box.Remember its better to keep the Virtual memory values the same.

Also having enough available space is absolutely necessary for your virtual memory and RAM to function properly.

MasterCook 9.0 Printing/Publishing extra letters on print.


I think I have a solution for this. When you are all ready to print your cookbook go back and change the way you want it divided (instead of alphabetical or by title) to a field that you did not use. I didn't put an author on my recipes so I picked author and it comes back and says there is not author but ignor that and start printing. The A, B, C are no longer there. I hope this works for you.
